We’re happy to announce a new project called Choria Scout - a highly scalable system health monitoring framework
and monitoring data pipeline released under the Apache 2.0 license.
Initially we support the ability to execute Nagios compatible plugins on Choria managed nodes with results sent centrally
in a standard CloudEvents format, and optionally, integrated into Prometheus.
These are framework level building blocks that will in time be used to create a full monitoring stack built on Choria
technologies. Checks and value overrides can already be configured using our Puppet modules. You can also use these
building blocks to build entirely custom solutions for your own needs.
Scout will be a cloud native project with central components capable of being hosted on Kubernetes and using data formats
supported by commercial clouds and projects like KNative. It will have a focus on integration, open data exchange and
Despite being cloud native we will of course support monitoring anything where Choria, or the upcoming Scout agent, can
run which includes traditional baremetal, VMs, containers and pods and small devices.
