We use XDMoD and Zabbix for per machine monitoring. Logwatch as well, but
not as comprehensively.

Tried Grafana, InfluxDB and this plugin (
http://slurm.schedmd.com/SLUG16/monitoring_influxdb_slug.pdf ) but we
didn't find it as useful as we would have liked. It's a great plugin, we
just didn't need it.


"The antidote to apocalypticism is *apocalyptic civics*. Apocalyptic civics
is the insistence that we cannot ignore the truth, nor should we panic
about it. It is a shared consciousness that our institutions have failed
and our ecosystem is collapsing, yet we are still here — and we are
creative agents who can shape our destinies. Apocalyptic civics is the
conviction that the only way out is through, and the only way through is
together. "
