Re: [tlug] What do you use for simple monitoring?

>with some services
Seems like you should be using whatever you use to manage the service itself for monitoring and triggering events on failure (or any service life-cycle event). I think all of the popular ones support this. The emailing part makes sense to be in a script which is triggered by the service manager, though. If you aren't using a service manager, I would recommend doing so! My 2 yen: for things that don't need to scale, systemd makes sense -- and for things that do need to scale, kubernetes makes sense.

We have a python program for simple checks and sending emails
or chat messages when a failure is detected. It might be a bit
messy now, but it works.

Hope it helps
