Criteria for a Capable Monitoring System

This is a note from a book i was reading about scalable architectures that I would like to keep in front of me to look into from time to time.

The book is named Scalable Internet Architectures, In brief it states that what makes a good monitoring system is two criteria :

  • The time invested in it.
  • Being reliable and extensible.

and the most basic capabilities of this system would be :

  • SNMP support
  • Extensibility
  • Flexible Notifications
  • Custom Reactions
  • Complex Scheduling
  • Maintenance scheduling
  • Event acknowledgement
  • Service dependencies
