Simplifying IT Monitoring Challenges

At LANCOM Systems, the transition to a more integrated and efficient IT monitoring system was driven by a desire to streamline operations and overcome the challenges associated with complex system monitoring. The company faced significant hurdles in integrating services within Docker containers and adapting to the programming language Go, despite a strong preference for Python. This challenge was further compounded by the need for a comprehensive monitoring solution that could offer extensive out-of-the-box features without necessitating extensive development work.

LANCOM Systems' journey toward resolving these pain points led to the adoption of Netdata, a platform celebrated for its simplicity and robust feature set. The immediate appeal of Netdata lay in its ease of setup and extensive integrations, which allowed LANCOM Systems to monitor their containers, Debian OS, and Prometheus exporters efficiently, effectively addressing their main challenges.

“So many out-of-the-box features! I mostly have not to develop anything and can just use Netdata directly to monitor my stuff!”
