In a nutshell: a wild bunch of open source addicts sharing their ideas about modern open source monitoring solutions. Catch up on the latest developments in the monitoring and observability area!


IT infrastructures are the technology foundation of businesses and their health and performance are key for success. The function of infrastructure monitoring is to continuously check whether all single components and necessary processes within one’s IT environment work the way they are supposed to work available, stable, efficient. Relevant data are collected, stored, and analyzed.
At OSMC you learn about future trends and objectives in open source monitoring and observability!


The main goal of monitoring is to ensure a smooth operation of IT infrastructure. Potential errors should be solved in advance so that they don’t become problems. Prevent downtimes of your IT that can result in loss of profit! At OSMC you’ll get to know best practices that lead to higher availability and stability of the IT environment which is an important factor regarding your company’s success.


Due to the complexity of modern IT infrastructure it’s more important than ever to keep an eye on both local data centers and cloud-based infrastructure. Nowadays hybrid environments have become standard. At OSMC you will hear stories about cloud, containers and microservices as well as the traditional model of monitoring hosts.


Generally, every single component which is part of a company’s IT infrastructure can and should be monitored: hardware, software, storage, utilization of memory, network devices and services, applications, divers processes, interfaces, directories and logs. Get to know the best open source solutions, from umbrella software to very specific.


The larger the number of objects to be checked the more effort is required. In modern IT it’s usual to monitor massive amounts of data. That’s why there’s the need to automate workflows as well as being able to scale with your monitoring. At OSMC you’ll get to know monitoring tools and strategies that enable you to manage workloads with effortless ease, gain speed and reduce error rates.
