From #monitoringsucks to #monitoringlove and back?

Ages ago John Vincent tweeted: #monitoringsucks. He wrote a blogpost documenting what he thought was wrong with Monitoring in our industry. Not that much later Ulf Mansson gave an Ignite in which he documented his newfound love for monitoring #monitoringlove.

Since then a lot has changed, but did we really fix all the problems John Vincent wrote about. In this talk we’ll dig into that question and we’ll figure out if we need to fix monitoring again, or if we still love it.
