Let’s get right to it.
This week we feature a tutorial that published last week. It has to do with auto-remediating your environment. The tutorial focuses on using StackStorm to auto-remediation Cassandra; it was published at the Cassandra Summit after all – building on Netflix’s use of StackStorm for that use case.
However – and here is the kicker – keep in mind StackStorm is basically a giant lego set. The pattern outlined in the tutorial works. Not Cassandra? OK, have a different source of events and a different target for your actions. MySql? MongoDB? Heck, even Oracle? It can take you just a matter of minutes to adapt this tutorial to your needs.
And if you do contribute back some remediation patterns – your name can appear in lights as a guest blogger. Ping us on our community channel on Slack and we can help you adapt the pattern this blog highlights to your particular circumstances.
Here’s that tutorial: /2015/09/22/auto-remediating-bad-hosts-in-cassandra-cluster-with-stackstorm/
And the GIF from the tutorial. Have at it!
