Do you have a lot of servers to manage? Do you sometimes wonder what all those boxes do and how they relate to each other? Are you managing a cloud-scale set of servers, or developing cloud-scale software for them? If so, then you may be interested in the Assimilation Monitoring Project. This monitoring system has virtually unlimited scalability, and features continual stealth discovery - keeping you up to date on what all those servers are, and what they're doing, what switch ports they're connected to, and how they're interrelated - all without setting off network security alarms.
This talk will is aimed at administrators and developers and gives an overview of the capabilities, architecture, status and future plans of the Assimilation Monitoring Project.
