The Aiven Museum of Modern Monitoring Art

When you monitor your systems 24/7/365, sometimes you find your graphs doing something… interesting.

For example, this is cool, although at the same time pretty normal: heavy load on a server.

But sometimes, your graphs start… horsing around.

It makes you want to build a fence so the data doesn’t escape.

Or bury yourself in the pointillist sands of handler threads.

But don’t hang your head in despair.

Instead, contemplate the beauty of a working metrics integration, and relish the tranquillity.

Watch out for another guided tour of the Aiven Museum of Modern Monitoring Art, coming soon.
