Monitoring -- Discussions on the development of an enterprise-level, scalable monitoring solution

 

About Monitoring
English (USA)

Devdas Bhagat's talk in the LCA 2013 Sysadmin Miniconf inspired me to continue the conversation by running a Monitoring BOF. I then decided to create this list to carry the discussion forward and work on the issues.

Some of the problems identified in the talk include:

* existing FOSS solutions (e.g. Nagios) usually don't scale well
* multiple teams need to deal effectively with various sub-parts of the infrastructure
* polling sucks
