SOWN Monitoring Upgrade
This is a project to ultimately upgrade SOWN's monitoring to use Icinga2. An instance of Icinga2 has been set up on Sown-monitor-new which is accessible from inside the University of Southampton network only (as configured by the SOWN firewall. It is currently just running basic checks on localhost but there is a first attempt of a replica of SOWN configuration. We need to decide how much automatic generation needs to be done and how much of the pre-config (i.e. the stuff in createicingaconfig.php on Sown-monitor) can be dispensed with.
As related projects to this upgrade there are the following:
- Better external monitoring using SOWn's External Monitor server.
- SmokePing monitoring to better analyse network latency and packet loss.
