So this is something I noticed and found very fascinating: 

I'm an Administrator for a small-ish company. My Desktop runs Linux. I have a virtual machine where windows is running outlook.  I have outside my office door a horde of developers using Windows to develop .Net applications. 

Usually while looking at their screens in order to help them it seems like they have a tremendous amount of Windows and Applications open to help them in their workflow. In the past I've put that off as "just the way they use their computer".  Comparing that with my desktop running at most 3-4 Applications(Konsole with tmux editing writing documenting administrating, KRDC to manage Windows, Skype for internal communication and a browser to keep an eye on the Monitoring-Server) which is laughable compared to the myriad of windows they had (Visual Studio, SQL Manager, Browser, Skype, Textfiles, Ticket-System-Tool, Outlook, various other tools). 

Now I'm running Windows for a bit for productive work just to see if it works (8.1 isn't even half bad btw.  and very quick and responsive even on a 5 year old ThinkPad!) and I'm starting to notice this reoccuring pattern of a crazy amount of open windows. e.g.

- Putty: SSH to my stationary desktop where Linux is running.
- Excel: Viewing CSV files generated by nightly scheduled tasks to report on devices
- Visio: Viewing some design concept for our infrastructure / configuration
- Skype: Talk to my colleagues, announcing maintenance of services recieving complaints if something linux-y is slow
 - Outlook: Natively it feels kinda okay
 - Notepad: Notes and script editing (Powershell is really nice for a sh)
 - so on so forth...

I supposed this isn't even "just a user pattern"  it really is that you just get into this kind of "rut" once you commit to this way of dealing with things. Which is actually quite interesting...

Anyway. Hope I didn't waste your time too much. 

Cheers!

As I am (seemingly) the notorious Monitoring and Notification guy at my place, I started looking deeper into Nagios and what the infrastructure brings with it. 

So these two are quite pretty right now:

syslog-nagios-bridge:

Generate Nagios-Services from syslog-events and change state to CRITICAL if it sends an ERROR. 

https://github.com/dpocock/syslog-nagios-bridge

Adagios:

 Is one in a long line of Nagios-Configuration UIs that have been missing from Nagios since at least (what feels like) a decade
PLUS: It allows for a nice status and performance statistic if you add on PNP4Nagios and livestatus. 

The Kicker here is: GIT is part of the whole thing implemented in python using Django.

Similar attempts/efforts have been tried in the past. There is for example NConf using SSH and hoping for the best using non-password-protected ssh-keys or being allowed to WRITE to /etc/nagios without restriction or a way to rollback. On the other hand there is Nagios XI Configuration management. Did anybody hear anything about that being released even for the people using Nagios XI or the Commercial variants?

http://adagios.org/

I'm excited I will definitely be checking both of them out!
syslog-nagios-bridge - monitor syslog events and generate alerts through Nagios when necessary

This - I feel like - is one of these documents that should be posted and re-posted on a regular basis. Just to keep it in the back of the minds of the people writing our code...

We have pretty good timeseries collection agents, storage and dashboards. But linking a timeseries to nothing more than a string "name" and maybe a few tags without further metadata is profoundly limiting us. Especially when they're not standardized and missing information.

jq is like sed for JSON data – you can use it to slice and filter and map and transform structured data with the same ease that sed , awk , grep and friends let you play with text. jq is written in portable C, and it has zero runtime dependencies. You can download a single binary, ...
