I like to document what i do, so other people can learn from me(and my mistakes).
I can setup a fully working monitoring system for any enviroment. Monitoring not only your core hardware like switches and modems, SAN’s, but also unix/windows servers.
I’am able to manage multiple linux systems, e.g. Debian, Ubuntu etc. I’m able to implement new managing software like Salt, so future maintenance is easier.
I have the ability to solve problems within a short window of time. I solve issues on a daily basis, from minor issues to larger issue where time is of the essence.

May 2012 – Current
I currently work for bosworX ICT, a Dutch IT company. I manage +- 100 linux servers via Salt, mostly Debian and Ubuntu.
I started working for boworX as a support employee, but developed to Linux Administrator.
Jan 2013 – Current
I started inPimation in the winter of 2013, and did different things in IT. I learned some basic HTML and CSS, and learned my way around the Adobe packages. I also started learning the basics of Linux systems, which i later on used to become a Linux Administrator for bosworX.
The main goal was to monitor everything! And with everything they ment, everyting.
We ended up with a complete check_mk farm of 5 servers, using the distributed monitoring function we could easily scale.
1 main check_mk server hosting the webinterface and monitoring linux systems
4 slaves, monitoring windows hosts, WATO and specific network devices.
later on we also added customers with on-site check_mk servers, using VPN to communicate to the main check_mk server so everything was on 1 big pile.
Hosts monitored: 829
Services monitored: 39.907
on-site check_mk: 7
