Octoblu Intergration with Free Citrix Monitoring Tool
I have been a big fan of Citrix Octoblu and what it can bring to your estate for a while now. I was thinking about how I could “smarten up” the monitoring scripts I have been developing and thought that using Octoblu Triggers would be a good idea as once the error data from the monitoring tool is in Octoblu the options are endless.
In this example I have used Slack as an output tool for the error messages that the monitoring scripts generate. Essentially every error message should be posted into a specific slack channel dedicated to monitoring of my Citrix Lab.
Firstly, James Bulpin has done a great video about getting Slack and Octoblu to talk. You can find that here. Make sure you have a slack channel and an Octoblu Bot set up to post messages into that channel before you setup your monitoring scripts to output to Octoblu.
