Nowadays, the browser is essentially a thin client that allows users to access a variety of Cloud-based applications and services. However, many are still hesitant to put their full faith in a remote Cloud IDE for development purposes.
Look to these automation, orchestration, and configuration management tools to keep your server farms running smoothly (There are many tools helping you managing the cloud: #Puppet #Juju #Chef #Ravello #CloudVelocity #Tattle - Overview:
Easy configuration of checks- Monitoring new items is easy once you understand how Zabbix works and making changes to many machines is a doddle. Integrated graphing- You can create graphs easily and mix data from different hosts, which is great. Better yet is the ability to generate a graph of any numeric data collected on demand, so you don't even need to configure anything.Complex checks- Zabbix has a range of mathematical functions to build an expression which evaluate whether to trigger an alert. So lets says I'm checking the load on a system. I can set up a trigger to alert if the load is five times larger the average load of the last hour, and stays at this level for at least ten minutes. This is a very powerful capability.Maps- I've haven't really used these in anger yet but you can create a maps of selected host, host groups or individual checks. This is really useful to visually show dependencies between system especially when you have a chain of connected processes and you're tryin to diagnose a problemIT Services- Zabbix 'IT Services' are used to show a high level view of an IT service which may consist of multiple hosts and checks. When an alert is triggered, this view shows how a entire service may be affect. I deal with systems with many interconnected components and when one fails it's hard to remember all the other things that might be affected. IT services are good for problem diagnosis and showing a high level view of what client services are affected.Zabbix has a business model to make money - Even though I haven't paid for support yet (my rollout is far from complete), I'm reassured to see a strategy that can work in the business world. The truth is while some developers will work for free, it's very difficult to compete with commercial competitors because most developers like to pay their rent as well. Zabbix has a fast development cycle, commerical training and a conference a few days away. There's also a book on Zabbix which I found really useful
