Riemann and Statsd sitting in a tree

Monitoring our systems is a problem that is not yet solved. That is why initiatives like Monitoring Sucks 1 exist.

Riemann 2 is a a very powerful monitoring system that helps us monitor our distributed systems. With riemann we can use a powerful stream processing language to analyze our metrics and send emails, track metrics, combine statistics, etc.

But switching to riemann is not easy if you have a statsd/graphite monitoring architecture in place. You would need to send all your metrics to riemann instead of statsd and this takes some time to change.

In this talk I will give an introduction to riemann and show how you can set it up without changing your existent statsd/graphite architecture. You can continue to send metrics to statsd and they will be processed by riemann so your #monituringsucks less.
