I'm giving a try to Assimiliation, the project has got some very
interesting ideas about monitoring. I like that you don't have to manage
an inventory of all your network and processes, Assimiliation tries to
discover it by itself.
So far, I have compiled the code, and I tried the discovery agents. As
they output JSON, I can see them as useful for other tools, such as
Ansible (http://ansible.github.com), a devops deployment tool which uses
custom probes and facter to discover facts about the systems under its
I tried also to run cma (cd cma; ./cma.py), but then I have an error:
./cma.py: line 80: syntax error near unexpected token `"../pyclasswrappers"'
./cma.py: line 80: `sys.path.append("../pyclasswrappers")'
Running it on Ubuntu 12.04 x64.
I'm well aware that Ansible is just getting started, so thanks for
helping me here. I'm not too good with python, but if you need help with
Java, I'm your man.
