Fast Data, Fast Monitoring By Christopher Tozzi Big data is old news. Today, the key to leveraging data effectively is to do fast data. In a similar fashion, traditional incident management-which entails collecting and analyzing large volumes of monitoring information-is no longer enough. Organizations must also now do "fast monitoring," which means not only collecting monitoring data; but making it actionable in real-time. This post examines what fast monitoring means, and explains how incident management teams can implement this approach to realize great benefits. Defining Fast Data To understand the concept of fast monitoring, you have to understand fast data - one of the newest innovations in the big data world. Very simply put, fast data is big data done in a fast way. Whereas big data traditionally meant storing large amounts of information and analyzing it lat... (more)

Monitoring in the #Microservices Age | @DevOpsSummit #APM #Monitoring

Monitoring in the Microservices Age By Chris Riley Thanks to Docker and the DevOps revolution, microservices have emerged as the new way to build and deploy applications - and there are plenty of great reasons to embrace the microservices trend. If you are going to adopt microservices, you also have to understand that microservice architectures have many moving parts. When it comes to incident management, this presents an important difference between microservices and monolithic architectures. More moving parts mean more complexity to monitor and manage in order to keep applicati... (more)

IoT #Monitoring Challenges | @ThingsExpo @PagerDuty #IoT #APM #AI #ML

The IoT and Next-Generation Monitoring Challenges By Zachary Flower We're living in the future. Thanks to the Internet of Things (IoT), our world is more automated and connected than ever before. Just about everything, from cars to refrigerators, to coffee machines, has the ability to connect to the Internet, allowing us to micromanage each individual device. This type of automation is an exciting direction for the world to be moving in and the benefits it brings to businesses are huge. Optimizing Processes A great example of a traditionally non-networked company using IoT to make... (more)

Break Down the Silos: Correlate Data Between Vendors

Thanks to the DevOps movement, we now understand why software delivery chains that consist of a series of silos are bad. They complicate communication between different teams, leading to delivery delays, backtracking, and bugs. When it comes to incident management, there is another type of silo to contend with — the kind that separates incident management data from one vendor or product to another. These silos hamper incident resolution, as it makes it more difficult to collect and analyze monitoring data from multiple sources. How do you break down these silos to keep incident m... (more)

DevOps #Monitoring | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #IoT #APM #AI #ML #DL

Monitoring in the World of DevOps By Twain Taylor Central to the idea of DevOps is collaboration between all of the teams involved in IT applications and infrastructure. Developers, Operations, Quality Assurance, Security, and more, all have stakes in the delivery of a product or service. So, what does collaboration mean when it comes to monitoring in the world of DevOps? How DevOps Changes The Game In the past, different teams involved in creating or maintaining an application would first finish their portion completely before passing it on to the next team. For example, the Dev... (more)
