Curse of Cardinality: History and Evolution of Monitoring at Scale


Let’s have fun digging into observability tooling from simple red-yellow-green active checks to the latest measure-everything cloud native bleeding edge technologies. While ignoring our pagers, we will dashboard through the history and evolution of monitoring within heterogeneous large-scale environments. We will showcase typical end-users and the tooling anti-patterns they beget, and use stories of real outages to drill into interesting decisions made by the larger open source and vendor community in this ever-expanding collision of technology with engineer sleep patterns.
