Golden Signals: Monitoring from Fundamental Principles for Zabbix and Nagios Users

This blog series explores how Zabbix and Nagios users can leverage the SRE Golden Signals for effective application monitoring. It focuses on the importance of monitoring for maintaining high availability and introduces the concept of SRE Golden Signals.

SRE Golden Signals: These are four core metrics (Latency, Traffic, Errors, Saturation) that provide a foundational understanding of a system's health.

The blog delves into Latency, explaining how to measure it from different perspectives (client vs server) and the importance of differentiating between successful and failed request latencies. It highlights how Zabbix and Nagios can be configured to address these aspects.

The summary mentions that future parts will explore the remaining Golden Signals (Traffic, Errors, Saturation) and even delve into strategies for incorporating additional metrics for more in-depth monitoring.
