Integration Guide

Mackerel is a elegantly simple and easy-to-use service that uses the concept of roles to monitor and manage hosts. By running a program called mackerel-agent on your hosts, you can manage multiple hosts either on the web or via an API as well as visualize the statuses of hosts and applications with a high degree of customization.
