We are evaluating using Nagios or a similar Big Brother Enterprise solution for displaying information about our many Enterprise Mule instances, applications and the status of our production and staging environments. The only sure thing is that we presented a budget for buying a couple of 55” monitors and were approved. Pure awesomeness!
First solution: Do it yourself
This is complicated. We would have to hire a Java programmer to develop an agent to gather statistics from servers distributed in different geographical zones. Pretty heavy stuff. The project would take a while to complete. And once that is done, we would have to start worrying about upgrades, deployment of the agent, and paperwork. We are using a waterfall cycle. You know the pain.
