The State of Open-Source Monitoring

  • submit to reddit

Wanted to share this great presentation from Jason Dixon of GitHub...

Take a look at the history of open source monitoring tools, an attempt at fixing our vocabulary within monitoring, and a proposal for the "event stream model" as the future of open source tooling.

As a developer for my own startups I have yet to find the ideal monitoring solution.

My solution thus far has been writing Java Unit Tests that get run continuously by Jenkins (every 5 minutes or so). The unit tests or similar to integration tests but they hit health check URL for stats and what not. I believe Yammer does something similar.

I don't get pretty graphs but I do get some nice flexibility.
