Telegram is a messaging app with a focus on speed and security, it’s super fast, simple and free. You can use Telegram on all your devices at the same time — your messages sync seamlessly across any of your phones, tablets or computers.
Also, Telegram allows developers to create amazing things using some public APIs. If you want to see my projects using Telegram, go to this link.
Zabbix is the ultimate enterprise-level software designed for real-time monitoring of millions of metrics collected from tens of thousands of servers, virtual machines and network devices.
Zabbix is Open Source and comes at no cost.
By the daily usage of these two great tools came the idea of integrating them. How great would it be to receive all the Zabbix alerts on Telegram instead of on e-mail? What about the gain of reducing time to see that a problem might be coming?
So, to fulfill all these needs, I've developed a solution using Python and Telegram Bots. If you are interested, the documentation is available on GitHub.
It immediately made the team faster and more aware of what was happening on the network.
This project, used with Gabuino, made the team also aware of the environment on real-time. Nothing happens on the network or on the data center without being noticed.
Arduino is an open-source prototyping platform based on easy-to-use hardware and software. Arduino boards are able to read inputs - light on a sensor, a finger on a button, or a Twitter message - and turn it into an output - activating a motor, turning on an LED, publishing something online. All this is defined by a set of instructions programmed through the Arduino Software (IDE).
Zabbix Agent running on Arduino to monitor data center environments.
It's a small device made using open hardware and open software. It gathers data from the environment and send it to a Zabbix Server, allowing the infrastructure team to acknoledge everything that is happening on real time.

I'm a network engineer who lives between bits and strings.
My academic career is based on wireless communication, but my job is focused on keeping things running. It's about maintaining servers and a data center running smoothly.
Google can be an awesome teacher. Being self taught is essential.
