This module install an Icinga 2 instance with the current web interface.

Module Description

This modules install an instance of Icinga 2 with the current web interface. It let you define resources that the instance should monitor.

The module does not use stored procedures. The reason is quite simple, in a perfect world, all resources in a network are managed with Puppet. In a real world, there are a lot of resources like switches, routers, printers that can't be managed with Puppet and other resources that aren't managed by Puppet because of whatever reasons. So you have to define monitoring resources anyway beside of stored procedures. Mixing manually defined resources and resources from stored procedures is not really predictable and therefor error-prone.

The new web interface will be integrated an set as default once it is in the stable branch of the Icinga repository.
