Title: 4 open source monitoring tools
Author: Dan Barker
Abstract: In this opensource.com article, Dan Barker discusses time series data and metrics aggregation tools. He begins by noting the confusion, caused by the terminology around monitoring in recent years, which led to some “poor tools that tout the ability to do everything in one format”. He defines metrics aggregation as primarily time-series data. Then he profiles the distinctive features of time series data, as well as some tool options available, including InfluxDB Time Series Database.
