Systems monitoring is continuous integration

The League of Professional Sys Admins (I always want to say Extraordinary Gentlemen but who would classify a sys admin as a gentleman?) has an interesting post on comparing systems monitoring to continuous integration

The concept of using monitoring as a continuous testing service to validate your changes against the environment in order to reduce alerts, breakage and general frustration seems odd to some people.

Doesn’t sound weird to me. Although one thing that would be nice is to establish some simple rule and patterns one could follow in bootstrapping the monitoring system to hook into a ‘systems test framework suite’. As far as I know, that’s not something that I’ve seen something that can fit on a 3×5 card yet…
