Korte samenvatting van de stageopdracht:

For this project we're looking for someone that wants to help us tackle our metrics itch.

The current system of monitoring and alerting doesn't have the resolution of metrics we're looking for. Since Prometheus has nice features like a flexible API, alerting and service discovery it's currently the way to go. Besides setting up Prometheus, we'd also like some help with visualisation using grafana. What we're having in mind: 

Prometheus deploy needs to happen in an automated way (puppet, ansible, terraform, ...)

Number of servers to monitor: 700+ and counting, so we'd like to make sure the backend can scale

Where to deploy: AWS, Google, Cegeka datacenters? We'd like your opinion

Visualisation of the data in Grafana

Some investigation and maybe a small proof of concept monitoring an appliance

Added value for the student

You'll be helping a small-ish team that's in love with a lot of open souce technologies. We're also pretty flexible, very willing to help and like to tackle issues together.

Besides all that, you'll also be gathering experience with some technologies that are currently very looked-after on the jobmarket.

Requirements Basic knowledge of Red Hat Linux and open source technologies in general (vagrant, terraform, ansible, ...) You're willing to learn and work together

Your attitude is: I may have no idea how to do this, but want to find out!
