Many system monitoring tools exist but they aren’t free.  Though most Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) will also provide some automation for various situations, no vendor knows your every scenario, nor the software you’ve developed in house.  If you must do the work to notify or recover anyway, why not take the time to monitor what you know you need to monitor and save a few thousand dollars while you’re at it.  Filter and consolidate information for your operators and staff.  Delay low priority situations until normal working hours, automate recovery for common issues, and sleep through the night.  This presentation is here to help spark ideas, and provide a few tips to help you work towards internal solutions.  Tips will pertain to reactive and proactive system monitoring, audit readiness, and system cleanup.

Learning objectives:
Message, object, and process monitoring
Incident recovery
Consolidate monitoring
