  2. @alq Hi, my name is Alexis. @alq on twitter. I’d

    like to take just a few minutes to talk about monitoring.
  3. Jason Dixon The Good, The Bad, The Fucking Terrible and

    a Glimpse Into Our Future The State of Open Source Monitoring: never seen the asshole element at DevOpsDays. Coincidentally, this is my first visit to itoring sucks? Ok, this talk is not for you. I want to talk to people who love monitoring and want er the end of this talk today I hope that we’ve started a new discussion around monitoring and fter me need to update their slides. http://dtdg.co/obfuscurity-in-rome If you attended yesterday morning’s presentations, you saw Jason’s talk. He gave us a great overview of the state of open-source monitoring. If you have not seen it, here’s the link.

    will to put a great open-source monitoring solution together, you should. There’s a lot to learn and contribute in the process. But I recognize that not everyone has the bandwidth to do that. You may already be applying your time and effort toward some other equally critical project. In other words you need your monitoring to work and you need it to work right now and forever after.
  7. Monitoring that does suck not Of course you want monitoring

    that does not suck. So if you’re open to not putting it together yourself I submit to you the qualities that such a monitoring service should have.

Fourth, it’s automated, completely API-driven, deployment is automated. Fifth, it’s correlative, it lets you graph and correlate any metric from anywhere. Sixth it shows good craftsmanship, it’s a pleasure to use. We’ve built such a system.
