When we talk about monitoring we always have to define well the situation in which we find ourselves because there are many types of monitoring, just like different flavors.

¿Sabes qué tipo de monitorización te conviene?

Some questions that can help us to understand the context in which we find ourselves could be...

Who initiates the communication?
Is monitoring performed every certain time (always the same)?
Or only when thresholds are exceeded?
Is an action triggered when some kind of event occurs?


If you know most of the answers to these questions, things are pretty clear, and sometimes we are not aware of how little we know about our infrastructure until we get to monitoring.

If, on the other hand, these questions make you doubt, I invite you to refresh some concepts by reading the blog post I wrote some time ago about active monitoring vs passive monitoring.


The best of both worlds

In that post I commented that the best option is to unify both types of monitoring, with WOCU we provide you with both methods, on the one hand you have the active monitoring with the monitoring engine, and on the other hand, you have the passive monitoring with the event indexing backend based on Elasticsearch.

From the manners and the tabs of Assets and Problems we can access to the results of the active monitoring.

And from Events -> Logs to the events coming from passive monitoring.


However, until now, when a passive monitoring event arrived, you would only see the indexed event icon but it did not create an alert in itself.

We thought we had to unify both worlds, so we found a way to do it.


A pack for everything

I don't know if you have noticed that we have an (active) monitoring pack that checks passive monitoring events, when passive events arrive from devices that you are actively monitoring at the same time, you have a 360º view of what is happening in the same tab.

To show you how this useful pack works, I have made a video and pay attention that at the end I throw you a challenge ;)

Do you accept it?

Take a look at it, it can save you a lot of headaches...

Let me know what you thought, if you were able to apply the pack easily or what concepts were not clear to you and something very important to me... Did you like the video? Would you like me to make more contents like this one?

I look forward to your comments and suggestions.
