Compose Collection – Self Monitoring 2.0 is now available!
Self monitoring 2.0 or SM2 as we call it is completely rewritten and redesigned compared to the previous version and great focus has been placed on flexibility and presentation. This is to ensure that deficiencies in your monitoring platform are noticed and that the time to identify where the error is is as short as possible.
Why ’Self monitoring’?
It is more the rule than the exception that our customers have many different monitoring systems to handle different technologies. The monitoring systems are integrated with the CMDB, ticket system and Asset system.
A paradox that we, together with our customers, have wrestled with is that today’s surveillance solutions need to be monitored.
The question has then become: how do you monitor the surveillance?
Over the years, it has become clear that implementing yet another monitoring system such as Nagios or Zabbix comes with both a significant overhead in the form of skill requirements and development/adaptation to surprisingly long discussions about which tool to use.
In light of this, ’Self Monitoring’ was born, which goes directly to the core with the tests needed precisely to verify that the monitoring works to, precisely – Monitor.
SM2 is completely independent of other functions to minimize the risk that it too will have problems in the event of any interruptions or malfunctions in your environment and monitoring.
Although tests such as disk, memory and CPU naturally exist, the focus is on checking that databases contain the right data, APIs and interfaces respond, specific log messages and that processes are up. It is thus not only the technical platform that is monitored, but also the logic that drives the monitoring platform to do its job.
All of this is, of course, in any reputable monitoring tool you already have, but paradoxically, it is this very tool that needs to be monitored.
