This year, and for the second time in a row, Bleemeo has supported a team of INP Toulouse (the engineering school of two of our founders) during the EDHEC Sailing Race. This year the race was in Arzon in French Britany. During the race, we provideed them a tracker composed of a Raspberry Pi and a GPS antenna. Then, all along the race, it was reporting data in Bleemeo and we were displaying the boat data on a map. This is an example of how to report business metrics in your monitoring system with Bleemeo.
Let's discover some features of Bleemeo Cloud platform! In this article we will define custom statsd metrics, status, Nagios check and monitor them with Bleemeo. We will use Minecraft as an example. However, this article is still relevant for you even though you are not keen on building castles.
