#monitoringsucks Monitoring is AWESOME. Metrics
are AWESOME. I love it. Here's what I don't love: ● Having my hands tied with the model of host and service bindings. ● Having to set up "fake" hosts just to group arbitrary metrics together ● Having to either collect metrics twice - once for alerting and another for trending ● Only being able to see my metrics in 5 minute intervals ● Having to chose between shitty interface but great monitoring or shitty monitoring but great interface ● Dealing with a monitoring system that thinks IT is the system of truth for my environment ● Not actually having any real choices John Vincent (@lusis) on his blog http://lusislog.blogspot.com/2011/06/why- monitoring-sucks.html
