Put Moogsoft to work for your use case

Now that you've configured basic observability and you have an idea of how Moogsoft works, you'll want to put Moogsoft to work for your organization. Check the following scenarios for additional features you can use to get the most out of Moogsoft.

Noise reduction helps you limit the number of repeated alerts and incidents that you see, as well as de-emphasizing low priority events. In environments with numerous monitoring tools, it can be especially difficult to identify background noise, true issues, and related alerts that are part of the same problem.

Customize the way alerts are combined into incidents using the Correlation Engine

Make your important events more recognizable by transforming them or enriching them with data using workflows

Moogsoft can provide you with a compact, consolidated, single-pane-of-glass view of the events for your organization's monitoring systems.

Ensure that the right alerts are group together using the Correlation Engine

Make your events easily recognizable by transforming them or enriching them with data using workflows

Send data from your various systems into Moogsoft

Send notifications from Moogsoft to other tools

Create your own integration to forward events from unusual tools

Moogsoft can record operational metrics and generate alerts for anomalous events when out-of-bounds conditions are detected. You can manually adjust the normal operational parameters, or allow Moogsoft to automatically detect threshold limits.

If you're reviewing data from multiple monitoring systems, you want to log in once and have all your necessary information available at a glance. Moogsoft lets you log in one time and see all of your data in one location.

Moogsoft ingests the data from your various isolated systems and integrates it into a single view. You can:

  • Set up monitoring quickly--each integration takes just a few steps.

  • Use dynamic anomaly detection with dynamic thresholds maintained by machine learning, or customize thresholds using your own parameters.

  • Use Create Your Own Integration to configure ingestion for less common monitoring systems.

  • See all of your alerts, incidents and metrics in filterable, sortable views.

  • Reduce noise and highlight important events by customizing the way your alerts are correlated.

  • Take control your incident management workflow--assign alerts and incidents to Moogsoft users, and send notifications or data to other systems using outbound notifications.

When you're migrating services to the cloud, you want to monitor them both prior to and after migration. You are likely to want metrics collection that operates independently from the host platform, whether on premise or in the cloud. You'll also want adaptive anomaly detection, since an out-of-bounds datum on premise may involve different thresholds in the cloud.

Use Moogsoft to help monitor your cloud migration in the following ways:

  • Set up monitoring quickly--each integration takes just a few steps.

  • Monitor metrics from your cloud-based services.

  • Perform adaptive anomaly detection for systems, either in the cloud or on premise.

  • Send data to your services using outbound integrations.

  • Access a complete suite of APIs compliant with API First and Open API Standards.

  • Enrich your data with meaningful information using workflows.

  • Track historical trends in metrics and anomaly detection, and compare data before and after service migration. <link?>

When your services are located on multiple cloud platforms, you want to log in once to view the health of everything in one view. Moogsoft makes it possible to do this without logging in to multiple systems.

Use Moogsoft to help monitor your multi-cloud scenarios in the following ways:

  • Set up monitoring quickly--each integration takes just a few steps.

  • Monitor metrics from your cloud-based services. <link?>

  • Perform anomaly detection from cloud-based systems

  • Send data to your services using outbound integrations.

  • Detect anomalies in metrics

  • Access a complete suite of APIs compliant with API First and Open API Standards.

Moogsoft can help simplify your outbound notification process by automating notifications to external systems. Outbound notifications arrive in real time, when the information still matters and the recipient can respond and make a relevant contribution.

Moogsoft can assist you with outbound notifications in the following ways:

  • Correlate alerts into incidents using parameters which are meaningful to your organization.

  • Use workflows to enrich ingested events with data or transform data to make it as useful and meaningful as possible.

  • Send notifications and data using pre-packaged and custom outbound notifications.

  • Manage incidents and alerts from graphical user interfaces.

  • Reduce noise using either the system defaults, or customize the correlation engine to meet your specific requirements.

  • Access a complete suite of APIs compliant with API First and Open API Standards.
