We were initially a bit sceptical about this, reasoning that if your monitoring solution becomes an active part of the system, it’s no longer a monitoring solution but part of the infrastructure that needs to be monitored.
However, our thinking in this area has evolved and we can see there are a number of scenarios where it would be useful for alerts to trigger an additional action, and where potential risks are nevertheless manageable.
If you’d like to help us understand more about the kind of things this might help achieve, please email email@example.com and we’ll get back to you.
Good idea! If this suggestion gets more traction, we’ll implement this.
