Building Automated Monitoring with Icinga and SIGNL4

How many servers can be managed by one system administrator? This question is not an easy one since it definitely depends on the tasks that need to be operated. However, it´s quite clear that the amount of servers one engineer can manage has increased enormously over time, and is still growing. Yet, public and private clouds, combined with automation tools, enable us to automate many daily tasks. In a modern IT infrastructure almost everything can, and should, be automated.


Future Trends & Technology for Your Integration Infrastructure

Integration is now the #1 IT expense category at many enterprises and new complexities increase the burden on Service Delivery, CI/CD, IBM MQ administration, and other “integration professionals” every day. Your enterprise has Microservices, Mobile, Mainframes, Cloud, and more applications and application updates than you can count and it takes the routing of transactions, messages and more through a rapidly growing integration infrastructure layer to make it all work together.

PagerDuty Integration Spotlight: Honeycomb

Honeycomb delivers observability for modern engineering and DevOps teams to observe, debug, and improve production systems efficiently. The PagerDuty + Honeycomb integration uses Honeycomb Triggers to notify on-call responders based on alerts sent from Honeycomb. This integration is maintained and supported by Honeycomb. Liz Fong-Jones from Honeycomb joined us live on Twitch to share more about how Honeycomb and PagerDuty can be used together to help your teams and to do some live investigation into Honeycomb’s own performance data.

Reliable Alerting with Icinga and SIGNL4

You’ve probably been in this situation before – you’re using Icinga to monitor your infrastructure and Icinga detects a critical issue but nobody notices it. It might be an urgent maintenance request, an unexpected breakdown, or a service quality issue. But your technicians or service engineers are neither in the control room nor in front of the dashboard to see the issue and its urgency.

PagerDuty Integration Spotlight: InfluxData

InfluxData is an Open Source Platform built for metrics and events — a platform that is purpose-built for time series data. The essential time series toolkit — dashboards, queries, tasks and agents all in one place. InfluxDB is even more programmable and performant with a common API across OSS, cloud and enterprise editions. Send events to PagerDuty to keep your teams informed. Check out InfluxData’s integration.

Telegraf Integrations with is proud to announce a slew of new integrations via Telegraf. utilizes Prometheus in its product, but aims to support compatibility across common DevOps tools. A number of our customers, and the community in general, are strong users of Telegraf and its companion apps in the TICK Stack (which includes InfluxDB). Telegraf is not as popular as Prometheus, but it’s a strong element in the DevOps toolbox.


3 Ways to Use the xMatters and Microsoft Azure Monitor Integration

For a number of years, the debate on DevOps vs. ITIL has divided many technology teams. On the surface, both practices seem at odds with one another—DevOps harnesses the power of human collaboration and communication to support innovation, while ITIL utilizes a more systematic and structured approach to deliver service quality and consistency. But, if we take a deeper look, you’ll find that not only can DevOps and ITIL co-exist, they can even complement each other.


PagerDuty and Teleport: System access and role escalation when you need it

You may know that PagerDuty has over 600 integrations that add a wide variety of functionality to the core platform and workflows. Some integrations provide upstream data sources like metrics and monitoring. Some are for downstream capabilities like reporting.
