Business service and system monitoring based on Nagios
As the complexity of modern IT landscapes increases, so do the requirements placed on IT monitoring systems. To ensure that business IT runs without interruption and with the desired performance, far more is needed than an off-the-shelf solution.
ConSol accompanies you and your IT department with high-end consulting from conception to implementation and efficient operation of globally distributed monitoring platforms.
In the open source monitoring environment around Nagios, Icinga, OMD, Prometheus, Sakuli and Thruk, ConSol has been a household name for many years, still involved in the further development of the open source frameworks. Whether your business is an SME or a large corporation, we will support you with many years of experience and best practices according to your needs. Our portfolio ranges from single workshops to operating or hosting of customized monitoring systems.
Save license costs for commercial systems! We support you with migrating your IT monitoring to Nagios, Naemon or Icinga.
With Prometheus, you can securely monitor Openshift or Kubernetes clusters and integrate them into your process landscape as well as your existing monitoring.
With end-to-end monitoring (Web and GUI), you can eliminate customer-relevant faults in critical applications at an early stage, before they affect the user.
We offer training courses and workshops on all tools and techniques in use as well as on special topics – on-site if you wish.
IT Monitoring Services
Whether hosting, operation, or support – no problem: Use our IT services according to the modular principle, available also 24/7.
We analyze existing Nagios, Naemon or Icinga installations and point out useful or necessary adjustments.
We already know many heterogeneous customer environments and IT infrastructures which allows us to develop new plugins for your specific IT components.
We only use the modules that fit your needs best to create your individual IT monitoring architecture.
On request, we host your monitoring platform in our Munich data center, certified according to ISO 27001 for information security.
Benefit from our experience from various IT monitoring projects and get tangible tips, tricks & trend information. We are happy to visit you on-site and train you and your team as well as your management in monitoring. For appointment requests please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Naemon is the engine of several opensource monitoring solutions. This talk will take a look at what’s new in and around Naemon. It will try to answer questions like, what is a NEB module and what can it do for me? What are common addons and tools used together with Naemon. While investigating some interesing scenarios there will be shared some best practices.
Monitoring Kubernetes Clusters with Prometheus is state of the art. The difficulty is to find the significant metrics from the vast amount of available metrics. This talk shows a Monitoring Cockpit defined to get a quick overview of the cluster health and usage. It uses the Standard Metrics available for Kubernetes/OpenShift Clusters and their standard services.
Thruk is a modern web interface for Nagios that is also compatible with Icinga and Icinga 2. In his presentation at OSMC 2018 Sven Nierlein of ConSol introduces the development milestones such as dashboards, the business process plugin as well as additional functions and useful aids, making monitoring administrators’ life easier.
In his talk at OMD 2018 Matthias Gallinger answers questions about Prometheus and Grafana: How can metrics be collected and processed via SNMP, how could Grafana easily visualize a large number of network ports and is there a way to collect ad hoc metrics for troubleshooting? At the same time, the requirements for implementing SNMP are discussed.
Tobias Kempf and Michael Kraus present the highly automated logistics monitoring project based on OMD at Europe's largest retail company. It consists of more than 200 cascaded and self-sufficient instances, which provide administrators on site and at headquarters with valuable information about their infrastructure and reporting data.
At FOSDEM 2017 Michael Kraus introduces the integration of Kubernetes Monitoring with Prometheus into the OMD Labs Edition at FOSDEM 2017. By adding Prometheus to the stack, OMD Labs Edition is ready for cloud-based applications. This extends the integration of traditional monitoring with the requirements of dynamic cloud monitoring.
