The vast majority of monitoring solutions are difficult to install and configure. Technologies like Chef, Puppet, and Docker help with automating the installations, but a monitoring solution needs to be easily deployable.
Bronshae addresses the problem by integrating with the native package installers for each of the supported operating systems. We support Linux native packages like RPM and DEB for easy deployment and also Windows, Solaris, and even Mac OS X packages. As part of the deployment process, Bronshae automatically determines what services are needed for monitoring. Bronshae can connect to an existing database infrastructure or utilize its own embedded database for storing monitored data.
