CONTROLTEC case study

How did it happen?

A problem existed. Controltec were spending far too much time overseeing their monitoring system, and it was preventing them working on other projects. They were looking for a customisable and reliable monitoring solution that alerted them of problems quickly without having to worry about alert delivery.

Comprehensive setup. CONTROLTEC completely overhauled how they dealt with monitoring internally, so they wouldn't have to worry about it in the future:

  • Easy to follow setup and installation instructions.
  • Created custom plugins for monitoring their data queue sizes and long running data processing tasks.
  • Configured alerts to warn their Developers, Operations, DevOps and Managers of appropriate issues.

Houston, we have a problem. Data flow is key for Controltec, and when data backed up for one of their clients, Server Density’s alerts allowed Controltec to quickly rectify the issue before it became a problem.

CONTROLTEC is covered. They can get on with their work, knowing their servers are covered. Whether databases get sluggish, or websites begin to slow, Server Density’s alerts allow Controltec to take control of any issue and take action before they see bigger problems.
