Chico Questions[edit]

next session[edit]

Flapping alerts in shinken T161898[edit]


  • Is there a reason for collecting less metrics about puppet?
    • We have an addapted minimalpuppetagent.py that collects a lot less than the original puppetagent.py (it alsos add a _check_sudo method)
    • Maybe .puppetagent.changes.total, puppetagent.events.failure puppetagent.events.success and servers.hostname.puppetagent.events.total could be useful as well?
    • https://diamond.readthedocs.io/en/latest/collectors/PuppetAgentCollector/
