This is one of the sessions I didn't manage to make, so I'd been hanging out for the presentation to be posted online, which it now has been. I highly recommend everybody check it out. It's 95% plain common sense, so many of you may say "hey, I already know this", but I found it an excellent resource for getting you thinking about the basics when setting up monitoring from scratch with a minimum noise policy. From about 20 minutes onwards is the meat.
This would make a great Best Practice document.
Many thanks to Chris and Kaseya.
