As I have started to work on the Ethereum platform, one of my first needs as a system administrator the monitoring of the health of my node. There are many projects that allow you the monitoring, one of them is the https://ethstats.net/ which it is very cool. In it you can see your general node health, but to be honest, it is quite a hassle to have the web page on, not to mention you need to install some nodejs application in your server.
Because of this, I decided to write my own Ethereum Nagios Plugins. As I have already a Nagios deployment that monitors no less than 40 servers, it is a good idea sending an alert if something is going wrong.
The initial release of this plugins will help any system administrator to know the following:
I will write later a guide to show you all how to implement the plugins. It is quite easy.
Good Luck!blog comments powered by Disqus
