Monitoring an infrastructure is still one of the most complex tasks at hand. Yet in this age of Infrastructure as Code a lot of people are still stuck using tools that haven't adapted. This talk will explain you how to look at monitoring your infrastructure from another angle, where you can benefit from using Puppet to deploy and provision your monitoring platforms. This talk will explain you which monitoring tools are suitable for monitoring at scale and Puppet driven provisioning and which ones will only make your life harder than it should be. Where do tools like Icinga, Sensu, Graphite or even CheckMK fit into the picture?
