For a website of mine i want to use digitalocean as a high availabilty platform. A cluster with a loadbalancers, webservers and database servers. To automate scaling of extra webserver nodes i searched around for some solutions. None brought me a good and affordable solution
So i'm starting up a new project to monitor servers and to automate some things around it. Some features:
- Monitoring (cloud)servers (ping, mysql performance, cpu, memory, disk space, etc.)
- Alerts when indicators thresholds are reached (email, iphone & android app)
- Actions on alerts (webhooks, digitalocean API calls)
- Grouping of servers and specific alerts and actions for each group
This way you could create, for example, an autoscaling group of webservers etc.
Are people here interested in such a solution? Would you want to pay for this? For example 5$ a month for the first 10 servers.
