We are a very small non profit with a very simple server setup. Our two developers do not have any special training as sys admins. That said, it was very simple to get setup with Scout and start some simple monitoring of our servers. Most of what we do is check that some key processes are running and that our URLs are up. But we're interested in learning more aboutS Scout's capabilities/ doing more sophisticated server monitoring down the line. Scout
