The open source Assimilation Project provides integrated IT discovery and monitoring aimed at risk management and mitigation. It discovers systems, switches, services and dependencies. Discovery creates and updates a graph-based configuration management database (CMDB) of your infrastructure and services without setting off security alarms. This model includes services you aren’t monitoring and systems you’ve forgotten about. This is important since about 30% of outsider security breaches come through forgotten systems, and services you’re not monitoring can’t be properly managed. Monitoring is extremely scalable due to its radically distributed architecture. Because discovery informs monitoring, most monitoring doesn’t require any configuration.

This talk gives an overview of the Assimilation project – its capabilities, scalability and architecture, future plans and includes a demo of zero-configuration discovery and monitoring.
