What's my facial cream SLA?

I've been busy as a bee, so I've been unable to post new content here... anyway can you imagine it's been more than one year of What's up, home? already?! Time flies! 

To celebrate that, here's a proof of how bad I am still with remembering to apply my facial cream. Check out this SLA report for some recent weeks. I still get alerted about it and still after an alert it can go for long enough that my SLA can be really bad. Uh oh. Maybe on one day I'll learn.

Part 42: Monitor your iPhone & Apple Watch with Zabbix

I'm entering a whole new level of monitoring and "What's up, home?" could now also be called "What's up, me?". Recently my colleague did hint me about Home Assistant's HomeKit Controller integration just to get my HomeKit-compatible Netatmo environmental monitoring device to get to return value back to Zabbix without my Siri kludge.  One thing lead to another and now I'm monitoring my iPhone and Apple Watch -- so, practically monitoring myself.

Part 41: Measuring CO2 with a device that would not want me to do it with Zabbix

Can you integrate a CO2 meter which really wouldn't want you to integrate it with Zabbix, with Zabbix? Of course you can! By day, I'm a Lead Site Reliability Engineer in a global cyber security company. By night, I monitor my home with Zabbix & Grafana and do some weird experiments with them.

I have an el cheapo environmental monitor by Netatmo, showing the temperature, humidity, CO2 level and noise level.

Part 40: Is it raining?

Can you create a proper weather dashboard with Zabbix? Of course you can! By day, I am a Lead Site Reliability Engineer in a global cyber security company. By night, I monitor my home with Zabbix & Grafana and do some weird experiments with them.

Since Zabbix 6.2 (or 6.0? Cannot remember...) has provided you an official OpenWeatherMap template. It gives you all the standard weather details: temperature, humidity, and so on, for any location you'd like to observe.

Part 39: Let's hit the road!

Can you monitor how much you drive your car, even if your car wouldn't have any way to report back to Zabbix? Of course you can! By day, I am a Lead Site Reliability Engineer in a global cyber security company. By night, I monitor my home with Zabbix & Grafana and do some weird experiments with them. Welcome to my blog about the project.

Double-digit negative values now working in Zabbix 6.4.0rc2

Yay! Back in part 37 of this blog I found out that double-digit negative values were not correctly colorised by their threshold in a single item value widget. But, like I expected, Zabbix the company was quick to fix the issue after I reported it as this was such a trivial fix, and the bug has been now fixed in Zabbix 6.4.0rc2. Behold!

Part 38: Yes I have NetFlow at home, but what is it good for?

In part 36 of this series, I did let you know I have NetFlow monitoring at home. But for what is it good for, other than geek factor? By day, I am a Lead Site Reliability Engineer in a global cyber security company. By night, I monitor my home with Zabbix & Grafana and do some weird experiments with them. Welcome to my blog about the project.
