A runbook is a set of instructions for a human what to do. More specifically what to do when a certain monitoring alert triggers.

Pages that contain runbooks are linked from Icinga checks in puppet using the *notes_url* parameter.

There is a Category:Runbooks for pages with runbooks.

Compare to cookbooks which are programs running in spicerack/cumin to do maintenance tasks.
