Present server status on front page, ideally embedded in Confluence
Use escalations to not display “normal noise level errors”
Some stuff I need to test more in-depth
- Nagios IRC Bot -> basic testing done, was fun to use after hating the lack of documentation, but I should see if it even communicates acknowledges. Screenshot and URL will be added when I get around to it. I like the charm of having this in one window of my irssi. Of course it doesn’t have a livestatus backend
- Nagios Google Gadget -> Looks a bit lame, still interesting for adding it to Confluence as a live data source
of course (hey lars 😉 ) a good NagVis map will totally beat these solutions, I just lack the knack to make a nice picture that will give a really good insight to the infrastructure’s status. Still, until last week I had no idea how detailed a map could be.
