Many service providers offer webhooks as a means to integrate their service into another system. Webhooks are basically a form of callbacks which can be used to trigger functionality somewhere else. In the case of webhooks this is usually done by submitting some sort structured data like JSON into a http service. In this article we will cover how you can accept and validate JSON based webhook events using Wishbone.
Wishbone modules process and transport messages in one way or the other. Obviously, this needs to happen as reliable as possible. Wishbone has a particular way of dealing with exceptions. In this article we cover the role unhandled code exceptions can play and how we can take advantage of them by just allowing them to happen.
Nagios based monitoring frameworks organize alerting by associating contacts to host and service objects. This is not a very flexible approach and quickly starts to become a pain to maintain. Alertmachine is a framework using easy to understand and flexible alert rules to process alert events outside the Nagios based monitoring solution.
In this blog post I would like to demonstrate the how easy it is to setup a Wishbone server which allows you to send data from bash to a MQTT broker.
When it comes down to monitoring Nagios is still the weapon of choice for many. I would have abandoned it if there weren't projects like Livestatus, Mod_Gearman and Thruk which to my opinion should never be missing from any Nagios setup. Mod_Gearman, the framework which makes Nagios scalable, has a …more ...
In this article I would like to explore the possibilities of creating a TCP based event proxy which balances events to one or more TCP backends. For this we will run through a couple of scenarios in which we highlight different approaches.
