Actions in the Inbox

Actions in the box is a really simple way (adding schema.org markups to sent emails) to increase the user engagement on emails. GMail and Google Apps users now will receive notifications with “One click Action” attached to it. Which means that you can “Acknowledge” any kind of problem without opening the email.

This is what you will see when you receive a problem notification from MonGuru.

Twitter Integration

It’s really nice when you use a service that provides you a system health
web page. A place that you can go when you start to see things failing.
So you can know if the problem is in your service, or on the service
that you depends on.

Examples of that are the Amazon Web Services status page, DreamHost Status, or even the DreamHost Status Twitter Account.

You may have a service that should have some kind of public status page
to let your users know when your server are under heavy load, or things
are back to normal.

A simple way to get a “health page” working, is to twitt about the system health just like DreamHost Status Twitter Account.

twitter_integrationWe think this is a really good idea, use a social network that people are already used to use. That’s why  we implemented a feature in MonGuru that allows your Nagios instance to update Twitter when the state of a service or host changes. You can find the step-by-step process in our wiki.

 

Git Integration

A lot of System Administrators uses some version control software to keep track on the configuration for the monitoring tool. No doubts this is a useful use of version control.

That’s why, even running on Beta, MonGuru has a full integration with git.

If you are a GitHub or *Bitbucket user, you will feel at home using this new integration. MonGuru allows you to configure a WebHook in your git repository to notify MonGuru that the Nagios configuration has changed. MonGuru will automatically pull the changes from the git repository.

Beyond keeping track of configuration changes, git integration is a great way to give people access to change your Nagios configuration at MonGuru. Anyone with write access to the git repository can write config changes, and receive the changes results via e-mail. The instance’s owner is also notified by e-mail when changes are made.

Go ahead and take a look on git integration help, to see how easy it is.

* Btbucket has the advantage of providing the possibility of the creation of private repositories.
