SNMP Trap Archiving in Elastic via Tornado

First of all, I’ll briefly explain what the “Tornado” in NetEye actually is. Tornado is a Complex Event Processor that receives reports of events from data sources such as monitoring, email, and SNMP Traps, matches them against rules you’ve configured, and executes the actions associated with those rules, which can include sending notifications, logging to…

Icinga 2 DSL for Defining the Monitoring Status of Objects with Director

Today I want to present an Icinga 2-based monitoring use case where concepts of the powerful Icinga 2 DSL functional language come into play. The use case is based on mapping the status of a Host/Service Object via passive check results only. For this kind of use case, any accidental active status check could potentially…

They enable users to define the life stages of an index, determining when and how specific actions, such as transitioning from a “hot” to a “cold” state or deleting obsolete indices, should occur. ILM policies empower users to ensure the optimal distribution…

Troubleshooting Icinga Notifications

I don’t really know the reason behind it, maybe because the typical scenario for notifications is just “send all events to this mailing list”, or as we say: set it and forget it. But we shouldn’t use this as an excuse: monitoring projects now consist of tens of thousands of objects (hosts plus services), and…

Say you’re using the SIEM Module in NetEye and are deploying the Elasticsearch Agent to your clients.
