  267. madmalkav hey guys, what and how do you check the health of your xmpp servers? you check the processes, the listeners, the availability of DB, ...
  268. madmalkav anything else
  269. madmalkav ?
  270. jjrh has left
  271. pep. I guess you can have a client that connects every so often and tries to do some actions
  272. edhelas madmalkav I check the complains on Twitter
  273. css has left
  274. edhelas https://status.conversations.im/ is actually doing that pep. no ?
  275. pep. No
  276. pep. That checks disco I think
  277. pep. I mean it depends how thorough you want to be
  278. Licaon_Kter has joined
  279. madmalkav I don't want my company to call me at 4am because some operators are not receiving notifications on their cells
  280. pep. Well, if it's not the company it would be some kind of automated notification, you can't really escape that
  281. madmalkav and if that happens, I want my scripts to start the incident measures before people start calling in pacnic
  282. madmalkav 🙂
  283. madmalkav yeah, but if I automate it OK I can i.e. generate a warning to the 24/7 support to make some steps, and, if the steps fails, call me
  284. madmalkav ie., what is failing is DB, call DB guys, not me 😃
  285. jjrh has left
  286. pep. So the important bit is not the 4am, it's that you know before your users :)
  287. madmalkav being serious now, the important thing is detecting as soon as possible and as best as possible to minimize the downtime to a minimum
  288. pep. So yeah depending on how thorough you want to be, you can have checks on the server, and also emulate client behaviour
  289. madmalkav I can monitor with shell scripts, or python, but I will need help for that, and I can generate warnings to the 24/7 team so they take measures , or directly call me or other teams
  290. pep. If you do something like that for the client I'm also interested BTW :-°
  291. Holger I have Nagios/Icinga anyway and use a simple check plugin to talk to an echo bot.
  292. madmalkav If I do something like that I won't be able to share it , probably . I will have to redo it in a different way so company doesn't say I'm stealing their IP
  293. Holger (Plus separate database/HTTP checks, but that's about it.)
  294. madmalkav fuck big companies
  295. Holger I would suggest a proper monitoring tool rather than inventing wheels.
  296. Holger reinventing even
  297. madmalkav I thought you knew me well enough to know I don't have a word on deceiding what and how it is done
  298. madmalkav 😃
  299. Holger Using existing software is bad?
  300. Holger Seems you weren't forced to implement an XMPP server from scratch at least :-)
  301. madmalkav here there is a lot of internal developed software that is totally obsolete but they bosses are being slow on moving on. I've hearing on moving surveillances to Zabbix for at least 2 years
  302. madmalkav My boss is a reasonable guy with lots of technical knowledge and he wants to run away from reinventing the wheel as soon as possible, but he is an exception here
  303. madmalkav So, zabbix / nagios / ... already have XMPP surveillance modules?
  304. jjrh has left
  305. jjrh has left
  306. Holger Dunnu about Zabbix, that has stuff built-in, maybe. Nagios/Icinga and others have nothing built-in but call simple stand-alone scripts/binaries to perform the actual checks.
  307. Holger You'll find tons of such checks on the web, I wrote the XMPP check I'm using myself though.
