Blackboard - LTC2015 Proposal #1
Machine Data to Readable Reports
System Monitoring, Alerting and Reporting.
Ashley Fisher, Business Systems Analyst, University of the Sunshine Coast.
Within a year, USC have progressed system administration from quite lengthy log or database interrogation and a very reactive procedure for incidents, to a point where we have instant alerting of unforeseen incidents which occur and a Google-type search interface for log events.
The creation and deployment of dashboards has significantly decreased incident response time, allowing us to see a quick snapshot across the entire environment at the click of a button.
We have also successfully trialled self-healing incident recovery, opening a new world in terms of system administration.
