Reposted from firstname.lastname@example.org post by David Moreau Simard We have historically been monitoring RDO’s infrastructure through Sensu and it has served us well to pre-emptively detect issues and maximize our uptime.

Over time, we felt that user questions have been drowned out by the more technical developer-oriented discussion, leaving users/operators out of the conversation…. Read more →
