The product is a free cloud-based monitoring service.
There are more established services e.g. Pingdom and New Relic, not to mention cloud providers' monitoring solutions. Nevertheless the market is large, our service is free, great for custom monitoring, and addresses security monitoring out of the box, as recommended by PCI DSS.
Chronica is an opensource project (https://github/evanx/chronic) with effectively zero overhead, and may attract attention as a free entry-level service that rivals Pingdom and New Relic, and obviates the need to install opensource solutions such as Nagios or OSSEC.
The consumer is:
- Operator of a Linux system, who wants an instant monitoring solution, e.g. without having to install Nagios or OSSEC.
- Linux admin who wants custom monitoring using shell commands.
- Operator of a Java application which can be monitored via its log4j logs.
- Organization who wants to satisfy PCI DSS compliance requirements.
