Hi! My name is Daniel Granville and I’m the main contributor to Tear-Free Monitoring. During my 15+ years of working in information technology, I think I’ve filled every role in an IT shop: web developer, systems engineer, DBA, IT manager, and simply the guy to call when something critical broke. One of the roles I found most challenging was my 8+ years of work as lead monitoring system engineer for a large bank. Not only did I have to make sure all of my systems were healthy, but I needed to make sure that all the other systems in the enterprise performed as well.
In 2016, I decided to become a freelancer. To that end, I founded Robexent Solutions, LLC (the copyright holder and operator of this website) and started this blog to help people who face many of the same challenges monitoring IT that I had to overcome.
I hope you find what you need on this site.
