Eurovoice logo

Today I’m going to describe my tests done on Eurovoice.

Icinga VS Nagios – the matrix:

At almost a year after the version RC 1.0 and after three months from the first comparison (the YouTube film http://www.icinga.org/2010/05/25/youtube-icinga-vs-nagios-whats-the-difference/) the Icinga team added a new table which compares the two versions of “Nagios”. You can download it from here: http://www.icinga.org/wp-content/uploads/2010/08/Icinga-vs-Nagios-matrix1.pdf

Also be sure you checked out the web demo http://web.demo.icinga.org/icinga-web/ and the Nagios-portal, a forum for the Icinga \ Nagios administrator http://www.nagios-portal.org/wbb/index.php .
