Write icinga check to alert if bandwidth usage exceeds certain thresholds
Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

So far servers mw1, mw3 and misc2 have been suspended by RamNode because they used way too much bandwidth. Today this also led to a site outage: https://meta.miraheze.org/wiki/Tech:Incidents/2019-01-21-misc2

This script could be used to alert us if there are issues regarding bandwidth usage, we may want to develop a script in python, though. And besides that every server requires its own API key as well if I'm correct + we host servers with Backupsy and Linode as well, so it's better to start from scratch.
