What is Runbook?

Runbook is an open source infrastructure monitoring service that allows you to perform automated "Reactions" when issues are detected. Runbook gives you the ability to automatically resolve DevOps alerts with zero human interaction.

Simply put, Runbook is what you would get if Nagios and IFTTT had a baby.


Runbook is primarily in maintenance mode, pull requests will be reviewed and merged but this project is not currently under active development. It is suggested that newer users check out Automatron as an alternative.
