Monit integration with Incident Response

Monit is a utility for managing and monitoring processes, programs, files, directories and filesystems on a Unix system. Monit logs and notifies you about error conditions through alert messages. With the integration, these alerts become available in Incident Response, which acts as the response tool to handle the alerts.

What does Lightstep Incident Response offer Monit users?

Alerts in Monit trigger alerts in Incident Response.

Incident Response acts as a handler for these alerts and determines the right people to notify based on escalation policies, previously provided points of contact, and on-call schedules. Users are notified based on their notification preferences. Alerts are escalated until they are acknowledged or closed.

Functionality of the integration

When an alert is triggered in Monit, an alert is created in Incident Response.
