[Openinfralabs] Open Infra Labs/Operate Monitoring Architecture Discussion

Initially we planned to do this via IRC but after more thought we decided to start the bell rollign with a zoom call which we wil share publicly with notes.

The seeds for the discusssion are in this Epic:  https://gitlab.com/open-infrastructure-labs/nerc-architecture/-/issues/4

  what are the things desired from a monitoring platform?
  what kind of information is expected (is just metrics enough? what other data types do you require?)
  what kind of presentation layer is expected? do you just need a dashboard that shows graphs, or do you need more detailed analysis, and what might that look like if you do?
  how can the operational knowledge be conveyed? are there a default set of rules that can be provided out of the box as it were? what defines a "healthy cloud"? what defines a cloud that is degraded? what is the remediation path, such as alerting a human, or are there systems that can fix the cloud automatically?
  are closed-loop systems different from monitoring? are they different planes? are they similar but have different scopes?
  what is the expected resolution of metrics? sub-second? 5 seconds? 30 seconds? minutes?

Feel free to add topics you want to be discussed in comments in the Epic.

To help us pick a time please let us know which of the slots in this doodle poll https://doodle.com/poll/qrztwefpvebd53gv

Bill and I will begin scheduling these more regularly and will do an doodle poll to find timeslots for recurring meetings.
