In the previous chapters of the book we built the base framework for monitoring. We started with our Riemann server to receive and route our events, added Graphite servers to store metrics, and added Grafana to visualize them.

Lastly, we updated our notifications and added some new notification destinations. That’s a lot of moving pieces!
