Pipe Ten has been using Zabbix.com software since approx 2002 to monitor its operating system environments physical and compute (virtual and cloud).
Real-time monitoring and alerting of operating system problems is useful, but often overlooked is the value of gathering historic trends of resource availability vs. performance, which often helps point toward any root cause if/when resource related. The values monitored depending on flavour of operating system and availability often include:
- Disk/Storage Volume
- Disk/Storage IO
- Service/Process Metrics
- Core OS Error Logging
Pipe Ten provides packaged Operating System Monitoring with optional Response Services.
