Shipbeat case study

Leveraging nagios plugins for unrivalled flexibility.

Shipbeat is shipping made for e-commerce. Get all your carriers rolled into a single shipping integration. Designed to automate shipping and improve shopping for your customers.

What do they monitor?

The shipbeat stack — what's powering their service.

Server Density have been trusted with monitoring this.

We're not alone.

Shipbeat are using Github, Saltstack and fabric alongside Server Density.

How did it happen?

A problem existed. Shipbeat needed a monitoring solution that was flexible enough to allow them to pull in custom metrics and write plugins. They also wanted a solution that would scale with their Amazon Cloud instances.

Flexible monitoring. Making use of our API, plugins and support for custom metrics:

  • Coded API scripts to pull in their own custom metrics.
  • Integrating with AWS and configuring elastic graphs to scale monitoring based on service demand.
  • Using our Nagios wrapper to get Nagios plugins working out of the box.
  • Monitoring internal backups and cron jobs.

Shipbeat is covered. Our monitoring is deployed across all of their AWS instances. The Shipbeat team can now relax (a little more than normal), knowing that we will alert them of any problems if they occur.
