Your servers are all monitored with Nagios. Splunk is constantly eating your logs, hence why we’ve added some alternative to splunk here. You’ve got your EPO switch, your UPS, your temperature sensors and surveillance camera. The cables are tied up as neat as a Mouseketeer’s pigtails, remote management interfaces are quietly waiting for a server crash to require a remote reboot. This installation is complete – or is it?
We have discovered a new necessity for the well-equipped server room or data center installation. Just press this button to instantly relieve (at least for a few seconds) the stress of a down production system, the despair of an all night database recovery, the irritation of an arrogant yet uninformed colleague. It is a healthy, non-food or liquid solution to data center stress and we recommend it highly. Batteries are not included.
The Emergency Yodel Button is available from Archie McPhee:
