Corticon.js helps deliver relevant notifications in complex systems and applications monitoring.
When monitoring systems and the applications running on them for large deployments, lots of monitoring events get generated. From these events, alerts are generated and notifications need to be sent to interested users. However, very soon too many notifications are sent and the various users responsible for these systems and applications can get overwhelmed.
Users need to receive only the alerts most relevant to them. This can be achieved by letting users define rules to only get what they want. For example, some users may only be responsible for two applications among all applications, and they are responsible for just these within a sub-domain of the overall monitored infrastructure. They should receive notifications via email for non-critical alerts and via text for all critical alerts.
This example is relatively simple, but things can get more complicated quickly. To get a feel for the complexity of the problem domain, let’s look at two additional examples.
A customer has three load balancers with two applications on each (app-prod1, app-prod2, app-stage1, app-stage2, app-dev1, app-local-dev1).
The alert notifications can be set up like this:
A customer has one load balancer with five applications:
The alert notifications could be set up like this:
As you can see from the previous examples, the number of use cases and combinations can grow very quickly. Implementing all of these in code is complex and hard to maintain. A solution, implemented by one of our customers, is to use Corticon.js as a no-code rule engine to process events and alarms and to decide if these need to be sent to specific users.
There are multiple benefits to using a rule system like Corticon.js:
For this customer, using a rule system like Corticon.js has paid large dividends, as they can get to market more quickly confident in their ability to easily maintain and extend the system.
