Fast Track series: easily integrate monitoring alert sources

Integrating all of your monitoring alert sources is quite a task. Large enterprises often struggle to aggregate millions of data records from dozens of monitoring, change, and topology tools in real-time. Filtering out the noise and prioritizing the most important alerts are crucial to a team’s success.

BigPanda makes it simple to integrate with any monitoring alert sources with Open Integration Hub. Currently, we have more than 50 easy-to-use integrations to choose from. They support every enterprise IT Ops solution, including integrations related to monitoring, change, topology and collaboration.

Furthermore, with REST application programming interfaces (APIs), a simple network management protocol (SNMP) agent, and new self-service options, it’s easier than ever to bring all the monitoring data together to allow BigPanda to do the heavy lifting of normalization, enrichment, deduplication, filtering and aggregation. All of your tools are unified under one central platform, giving you full-stack visibility.

 

To set up a new integration within BigPanda, it’s as simple as choosing the integration you’d like and giving it a name, creating a unique app key. Then, complete the steps as outlined in the respective app itself. Once you have integrations set up, they will appear in one central location, organized and easily accessible. The list of integrations also conveniently shows the last received event for each integration. Users also have an option to troubleshoot an integration by simply clicking on a pre-configured integration.

The incident feed provides a consolidated view of all active incidents from any integrated monitoring system. After you’ve configured your integrations, you can use the incident feed to manage your incidents. Alerts are correlated and updated in real time, so your incident feed is always up to date with the latest system and application statuses. Pivotal details such as priority, number of active alerts, etc. help you understand the incident better.
