Email Alerts for Network Monitoring – Is Email Enough?
Using Email and SMS alerts for network monitoring such as Nagios, Zabbix or Solarwinds has been the practice since the early 90’s. But in an era of Smartphone in which we get thousands of email messages, IT experts ask themselves: “Is email still the right alert medium? Would I now stare at my inbox, each time I get an email, waiting for that critical email? Is SMS the right alert? Will it draw my attention?”
Alerting is a crucial part of your system monitoring. A system monitoring without a conspicuous alert when something is amiss is like getting a Pizza delivered to your building but not knowing when, so unless you sit there by the lobby waiting for that Pizza, by the time you find the Pizza it’s stale and cold.
