VMware: The Self-Healing Datacenter – Using Webhooks to Automate Remediation
Recently, Steven Flanders wrote a nice blog post explaining what Webhook Shims are and how they can be used. In summary, both vRealize Log Insight and vRealize Operations support webhooks. This is a capability that allows for integration with any other solution that has a REST API available. Ticketing, notification, chat and other capabilities can be leveraged by vRealize Intelligent Operations. Extending that capability can make your datacenter a self-healing datacenter!
If you are a user of vRealize Operations, you know that it can monitor your infrastructure, server OS, applications and more. But as you know, monitoring is only part of the answer. Wouldn’t it be much better to have vRealize Operations attempt some simple fixes before giving up and calling for human intervention?
In this blog post series, I will explain how to activate automatically remediate a problem detected by vRealize Operations using the vRealize Orchestrator Webhook shim to launch workflow based on an alert.
