Use SaltStack to deploy a full monitoring and supervision stack

Arthur Lutz

One of SaltStack's strong features is it's capacity to introspect your infrastructure and build upon this real time information about what services are being run on it.

This session will look into how SaltStack was used in a cloud environnement to deploy dynamic and elastic monitoring and metrics collecting using SaltStack salt-cloud in conjunction with netdata for metrics and the sensu monitoring for supervision (and a few metrics).

This talk will involve the following SaltStack components :

  • salt-cloud
  • salt-formulas
  • the salt mine
  • the salt scheduler
  • the salt returner
  • custom salt modules
