wouldn’t it be helpful to establish a common monitoring glossary as a comprehensive index which includes, defines and explains the most relevant methodologies and its vocabs - in the monitoring discipline in general and in checkmk in specific?
Both here in the community and in real life I often realize simple misunderstandings - worst case resulting in creative solutions displaying the opposite thing of the best-practice- / keep-it-simple-approach; just because technical terms are used with a different understanding behind - just to give a simple example: mixing up candidates like agent, plugin, check, local check, mrpe, special agent, tbc…
In the online guide there are already some entries where terms are defined and explained - but it’s just a start. Right now, you have to keep your eyes open everywhere because those definitions are not to be found in a central basin like a glossary to look them up all at once.
I guess such a glossary might both help newbies, experts and casual users in the same way. What do you think?
