Monitoring MISP with Nagios

Yesterday, a very interesting article was published on the MISP blog by my friend Koen about a solution to monitor a MISP instance with Cacti. Monitoring your threat intelligence platform is always a good idea because many other tools depend on it. You can feed other tools with MISP data and, if MISP is not running, you will probably break your detection cap

Exporters and Target Labels

When monitoring third-party applications with Prometheus, you’ll need an exporter if the application doesn’t already expose metrics in the appropriate format. How do you find an appropriate exporter, and once you have your exporters, how should you organize your label taxonomies to reflect your infrastructure? Many applications in the syst

From Instrumentation to PromQL

As a developer, getting metrics from your application onto a Prometheus graph can seem daunting. We’ll look at analyzing your service to find the most useful places to add metrics, how to add that instrumentation, getting it exposed and scraped, and then basic queries to use those metrics on graphs.
