To integrate collectd and OpsGenie with your monitoring system, please reach out to MetricFire. Book a demo with the MetricFire team to discuss integrating collectd and OpsGenie and how that can support your monitoring system.
Collectd is system statistics collection daemon that periodically retrieves system and application performance metrics and then stores them using various storage solutions such as RRD files. Collectd is a free open-source project. It can gather metrics from multiple sources, including operating systems, applications, log files, and external devices. You can use the statistics compiled by collectd to monitor systems, detect performance bottlenecks, and predict future system loads.
Because it's written in C, collectd is built for performance and portability, allowing you to run it on systems with no scripting language or an embedded system. It comes with optimizations and features to handle hundreds of thousands of metrics. Collectd also lets you configure what metrics you want to capture and what frequency you want to capture them, allowing you to scale back your metrics collection collect only the metrics that make sense for your business needs. Its modular architecture allows the daemon to use only the resources required to do the job.
Collectd only performs the collection and transmission of the metrics. It does not analyze or present the metrics on its own. But by integrating collectd with the Metricfire platform, you can enjoy metrics displayed on aesthetically pleasing dashboards. Our integration lets you view metrics on essential systems and application log messages on your Hosted Graphite graphs and dashboards.
You can download a collectd configuration file pre-filled with your Hosted Graphite account details on our add-ons page. This configuration comes with several collectd plugins enabled, including CPU, DF (file system usage), disk, entropy, interface, load, memory, processes, rrdtool, swap, users and write_graphite.
OpsGenie is an incident management system that helps teams engage the right people to manage and resolve an incident in the shortest possible time.
OpsGenie is designed to streamline those crucial incident monitoring processes by alerting the right people on your team to take action and address an issue as soon as possible through its on-call management and escalation features. It comes with highly customizable features and sophisticated tools, all designed to work with different DevOps workflows.
Unlike regular incident monitoring platforms, OpsGenie intuitively forecasts potential issues based on aggregated metrics. This tool also automatically determines the people or teams best equipped to resolve the issues detected through proper action mapping.
You can optimize your team's collaboration and communication channels by integrating OpsGenie with over 200 ticketing, monitoring, and chat tools, including Slack, Jira, and Amazon CloudWatch. Plus, common and repetitive actions can be quickly executed by using OpsGenie actions. For example, in response to an alert, OpsGenie can start an Amazon EC2 instance.
Being a service-aware incident management platform, OpsGenie also proactively alerts stakeholders about any service disruptions or outages. With its ability to identify, manage and categorize critical incidents promptly, OpsGenie is a favorite incident management system for businesses with always-on services. OpsGenie tracks everything related to alerts and incidents, allowing you to monitor your team's performance in acknowledging and resolving incidents.
Integrating your OpsGenie platform with your MetricFire platform is a great way to ensure that any incidents identified by MetricFire are actioned by the right person in your DevOps team as soon as possible.
All you do is create an OpsGenie channel in your MetricFire alerts panel. Then, as MetricFire aggregates and monitors metrics from all your computer systems, you'll feel confident that any incidents will be quickly addressed and fixed by the right people in your DevOps team.
MetricFire is a full-scale platform that provides infrastructure, system, and application monitoring using a suite of open-source monitoring tools. We enable you to use Hosted Graphite and aesthetic custom dashboards to visualize your metrics so you can understand what is happening.
MetricFire offers users a complete ecosystem of end-to-end infrastructure monitoring, comprised of popular open-source monitoring software services: Graphite and popular dashboards. Plugins for many other open-source projects are preconfigured, such as StatsD, collectd, and Kubernetes. You get all these within a hosted environment as a single product. Not only does MetricFire fit well into the infrastructure monitoring use-case, such as network monitoring and server monitoring, but we also do application monitoring and business intelligence.
Through this hosted environment, MetricFire boosts the unique features of open-source projects to give you more functionality than the original products. Below are some of the MetricFire features at a glance:
