Why Monitoring Sucks

Found an interesting old post by John E. Vincent, Why Monitoring Sucks tweeted by MonkChips. What is interesting is what John did next. He created a GitHub account so that he could collaborate with people to rectify the problem.

The most interesting part (to me anyway) is the tools-repos repository in which all of the different monitoring tools are listed.

Enjoy! :)

PS: as a counter point, read this post entitled #monitoringlove – a true story by Ulf MÃ¥nsson.
