I need to set up a monitoring and alerting system for one of our business teams-- they're smart people, but not engineers or sysadmins. I basically need to do the same thing that happens for system monitoring, but with all application-specific metrics. I'll be writing all of the monitoring scripts myself.
I'm familiar with Nagios, and it's what we use in-house for our system-level stuff, but it's not the right fit for this problem. My needs:
- A clean and simple dashboard
- Alerting capabilities
- Obviously, the ability to write my own monitors
In other words, what's like Nagios but dumbed down?
