I wanted to get some sample data and was too lazy to use generators or to craft it by hand, so I decided to try and use ChatGPT to generate sample monitoring data.
Started with this prompt

So I’ve joined T2 (now Pebble) to try it out and it was pretty quiet there at the beginning. It was a bit hard to see whom to follow and such. So I decided to look a bit behind the curtain and see if T2 Social has an API.

Splunk has a predict command that can be used to predict a future value of a metric based on historical values. This is not a Machine Learning or an Artificial Intelligence functionality, but a plain-old-statistical analysis.
So if we have a single metric, based on historical results we can produce a nice prediction for the future (of definable span), but predicting multiple metrics in Splunk might not be as straightforward.
The XRP Ledger (XRPL) is a decentralized, public blockchain and rippled server software (rippled in future references) powers the blockchain. rippled follows the peer-to-peer network, processes transactions, and maintains some ledger history.
rippled is capable of sending its telemetry data using StatsD protocol to 3rd party systems like Splunk.
So I want to use the same SSH Public key to be able to authenticate across multiple Linux VMs that I’m building in Azure in Terraform. While I did find a lot of examples (including among Terraform example repo) of how to do it if you have the key stored on your local machine I couldn’t find (or didn’t search long enough) how to use an SSH key stored in Azure Key Vault while building Azure Linux VMs using Terraform.
There are many different options for Funded start-ps to get free credits from various cloud providers, but choosing a cloud provider for a Bootstrapped startup is a bit harder.
Some might have already a preference towards one cloud provider over another (based on their experience or other factors), but here I’m trying to compare them from a pure “free cloud provider credits for a bootstrapped startup” perspective,
