Support for Elasticsearch-only Nodes

Until NetEye 4.8, customers who needed to expand the capacity of their Elasticsearch cluster running alongside their Red Hat cluster could add new standard nodes to NetEye clusters. This meant, however, that the new nodes would dedicate their resources not just to improving the capacity of the Elasticsearch cluster, but also to maintaining all services…

Elastic Stack Cluster with NetEye >= 4.8

In a previous blog post, I described how Elastic Stack fits within the High-Available cluster architecture of NetEye 4 and, in particular, how the correct configuration of the Quorum is mandatory to prevent losing your data or even developing inconsistencies. With the upgrade to NetEye 4.8, we updated Elastic Stack to the new major version…

Burstable Billing Bandwidth Using NetEye

Within Internet provider companies, very often we are asked to calculate the amount of Internet bandwidth in order to bill any excess use of bandwidth to each customer. We decided to make this calculation completely customizable using NetEye together with the built-in tools Icinga2, InfluxDB and Grafana. Phase 1 Using an SNMP check, we measure…

In the past I’ve written in this blog post about Elastic Stack and its features. Here I’d like to show you more in depth the functionality of Graph analytics. The Graph analytics features enable you to discover how items in an Elasticsearch index are related. It’s possible to explore the connections between indexed terms and…

Never Forget Your NetEye Updates!

Regularly updating operating systems is now an essential task. And the operating system at the base of NetEye (CentOS 7) must be regularly updated. But I still find many customers who for lack of time forget these updates and ask me if it’s possible to get an automatic report of them. And here I found…

Monitor Cluster Disk Space with Icinga2

The Problem If you’re trying to monitor a Microsoft Cluster, you’ll surely want to monitor the disk space of a single cluster service. In this case there’s a problem with Icinga2 Agent:  you can’t use it with more than one IP address.  So you can’t simultaneously monitor the resources of the “physical” host and a…

Securing scp/sftp Access to Your Centos7/Redhat7 Server

Sometimes you just need to temporarily grant access to a user to copy some files to your server. But no user should have access to the shell. For sftp this is quite simple (see below), but for scp it’s not that trivial. Also, you probably want to set the user up in a directory with…

Monitoring Automation, or Orchestrating Your Monitoring over Your CMDB

In every Enterprise, that extra step you need to master for monitoring is always a bit problematic. Normally, the people doing monitoring or who are responsible for the monitoring infrastructure are different from those doing daily administrative work on the server infrastructure. Most of the time, new servers are up and running much sooner than…

Grafana User Management Deprecation in NetEye 4.10

A manual user configuration migration is required before upgrading to 4.10. Starting in version 4.9, NetEye supports Grafana user management, which is completely integrated into NetEye via its existing roles mechanism. NetEye administrators can create new roles that map to Grafana roles (admin, editor or viewer) at the level of organizations and teams. NetEye users must then be…
