Observium Integration Guide

Observium is a low-maintenance auto-discovering network monitoring platform supporting a wide range of device types, platforms and operating systems including Cisco, Windows, Linux, HP, Juniper, Dell, FreeBSD, Brocade, Netscaler, NetApp and many more.

TaskCall's Observium integration brings alerts triggered on Observium from threshold breaches to be brought to the forefront. Use TaskCall's powerful incident response and management system to resolve incidents in real time.

  • The integration happens between a TaskCall service and Observium.
  • Incidents will automatically resolve in TaskCall when metrics fall back within the normal threshold.
  • At the moment this integration only supports receiving alerts in TaskCall from Observium.
