Basic red/amber/green for availability

Hi, I’ve got a good handle on Grafana, InfluxDB, and Telegraf, getting some great metrics graphed, so I feel a bit silly asking what feels like a basic question.

I have a fleet of 10 servers. A few MongoDB, a few Hadoop, a few custom applications.

What is a good way to get a simple Red / Amber / Green for each server - is the server pingable (for example), is a specific service running.

singlestat with threshold would be your best bet in this instance.

You will need to define the threshold within the options setting.

Threshold of what metric?
