Monitoring is the key to a healthy Alfresco Platform installation. Metrics give insight into how the application is behaving and make it possible to react quickly when something is not right. At this moment an enormous amount of monitoring systems is available, each one with its own concepts and usage. Furthermore, there is not one of these monitoring systems which is 'the best', they all have their perks and cons.
As a result, different companies way too often need to start building their Alfresco monitoring stack from scratch, simply because there is no integration available for their preferred monitoring system.
