The Icinga Project's Icinga Exchange

The new Icinga Exchange is a central repository for plugins, files, programs and add-ons that extend Icinga and compatible projects like Nagios, Shinken or Naemon. The repository allows users to search, store and rate Icinga-compatible extensions easily and connect with the people behind them. The project's Solr-based search engine and navigation tags ensure that searches are quick and easy. Users can choose from manual upload or an automated GitHub sync, the latter "taking the fuss out of maintaining a second project site", notes the Icinga Project. Currently more than 500 projects are available on Icinga Exchange, many of which migrated to the new repository with the previously established Monitoring Exchange repository. The Icinga Project also emphasizes its openness to plugins and add-ons that are compatible with related monitoring tools.
