It’s not yet clear when I can start working on a new-generation Torrus, but here are some nice software projects which would probably inspire the new design, or probably be part of the new design. I haven’t looked into them in depth though.
- Bosun is a distributed monitoring system produced by StackExchange. It uses distributed collector agents which write data into OpenTSDB. Bosun and its collector are written in Go, and OpenTSDB is written in Java.
- InfluxDB is a time-series database written in Go.
and yes, the new project will most probably have its core in Go. But the SNMP discovery engine will most probably remain in Perl because of a big list of supported vendors.
