Continuous monitoring of server resources utilization using custom scripts

Monitoring IT infrastructure is essential to ensure its stability. Choosing an
efficient, scalable, customizable, and light-weight solution for this has always been a
challenge with changing requirements. Custom scripts can be used to achieve this smartly
unlike the agent-based monitoring method in which all data defaulted by the monitoring
tool used will be collected. This article describes the custom script method for
monitoring system resources. In this method, the data collector(s) scripts running on
data collector node will poll the target systems for data and so can decide on what data
to be pulled.
