Pipe Ten has been using Zabbix software since 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 helps point towards potential root causes if/when resource related. The values monitored depending on the flavour of the particular operating system often include:
- Disk/Storage Volume
- Disk/Storage IO
- Service/Process Metrics
- Core OS Error Logging
Pipe Ten provide packaged Operating System Monitoring with optional Response Services.
