With Canopsis + Rundeck, unlock the full potential of hypervision : in vast Information Systems where multiple monitoring tools are used, a centralized monitoring console is a must-have!
Canopsis in a few words
Canopsis is an open source monitoring aggregation tool, started by a French company named Capensis in 2011. Canopsis collects events from different sources, processes them and presents the alarms in customizable dashboards.
The remediation feature in Canopsis
A remediation feature has been introduced in a recent Canopsis version (v4). With this feature, Incident Response Procedures can be defined and associated with alarm patterns. That way, support teams can be presented with the relevant procedure when they receive the alarm.
Interactions between Canopsis + Rundeck
Perhaps your typical Incident Response Procedure include temporary (sometimes unfortunately permanent) work-around steps such as “Restart service X”, “Empty file Y”… In this case, you will probably want to automate these kinds of jobs!
Well, Canopsis can leverage your Rundeck jobs to execute remediation tasks in the context of a procedure. When a procedure matches an alarm and it has one or more automated step(s), you can trigger the automated job right from your centralized alarm tool.
Let’s see how a support team would benefit from the combination of Canopsis and Rundeck to solve issues quickly while avoiding repetitive manual operations:
In the near future, Canopsis is planning to provide the option to automatically launch a particular job when a specific alarm arises, without any human intervention!
