I’d like to know how you guys handle vSphere alarms?
I’m currently using my own check plugin which returns all alarms at that time, but the downside of course is that notifications are only send when the state changes (which was discussed here and here.
However, the project request to have a notification for every single alarm instead. Using ELK just for this approach sounds like cracking nuts with a sledgehammer, am I wrong? What about using a passive check where my check plugin throws in any new alarm?
