Integrating Third-Party Tools

There are many monitoring and alerting systems available, too many for us to hope to cover every possible option here. We can, however, attempt to document using some of the more common options.

Some of these third party monitoring applications and services are able to tap into the extensive list of Traffic Server statistics, others make use of Traffic Server log files, and yet others are aimed at simple health check reporting. An extensive service monitoring configuration may take advantage of more than one service to play to their complementary strengths. Which tool, or combination of tools, is right for your infrastructure will likely vary.
