    Re: the SRE Book

    “Borgmon: Similar-ish to Prometheus” until you look at the background of the original prometheus developers. There’s a reason Google SREs find Prometheus’s design and query language very familiar ;)

    heh yep! I just hope they were not working for Google at the same time….

    Nope, Prometheus came out of SoundCloud. Keep meaning to play with it, but I’m resisting the urge to add it to FreeBSD ports tree first.

    I do need to stop comparing borgmon to open source tools like RRDTool and Nagios though. Used to be a great way to teach borgmon appreciation :)

    The open source tools like rrdtool and nagios are such a shitshow. I don’t know why they’re so bad — I guess the devs are too busy getting paid to do opsy stuff instead of working on the awful UX.
