  1. Do you use a good system to detect and get notified of disasters that you can recommend? I would sleep better if I could just check my e-mail after midnight…

  2. I’m using Nagios, Munin, Monit and few custom made perl/shell scripts. You need to play with these tools all of them are quite effective.
