Using Salt Open for Event Driven Automation
Salt communicates using a powerful event based architecture. In this course, you’ll learn how to observe and extend the Salt event bus for yourself.
What you'll learn
Your infrastructure is a constantly changing system, with services starting and stopping, users logging in or out and machine resources being utilized to differing degrees. Salt’s event system can be used to report in realtime on not just itself, but the machines it is running on too. In this course, Using Salt Open for Event Driven Automation, you’ll see how to leverage this system for your own use. First, you’ll learn about the event system and how to interact with it. Next, you'll dive into how to use in-built beacons to produce useful events. Finally, you'll see how to make Salt react when specific events occur. When you're finished with this course, you'll have a solid understanding of using Salt Open for event driven automation.
