Customer Success Story: LearnZillion
LearnZillion was looking into collecting, storing and visualizing host and application level metrics from its applications. They liked what the TICK Stack had to offer in meeting those needs: composable systems that are self-contained and easily extendable. Since they use Salt Stack to manage configurations on their instances, they first searched for existing formulas to deploy Telegraf to their instances. Unfortunately, there was no such formula available, so they decided to write one and publish it themselves. The telegraf-formula will install and set up Telegraf on Debian or Red Hat-based systems. The formula gives users an easy way to describe various inputs, outputs and global_tags via yaml in Salt’s pillar.
