Monitoring the DevOps Way

Today's operations environments can generate a huge volume of raw data. It's getting more challenging (especially as our systems scale out) to manage just storing all that information, let alone turn it into something comprehensible. When large-scale system issues surface, every second can matter when you're searching for a resolution. Even more importantly, the right information can make the difference between an issue happening or not happening in the first place! Thankfully, Open Source can help! This talk will cover, using examples from production life at Media Temple operations, * Some proven patterns that help with * Reducing the amount of data that gets generated in the first place * Storing, visualizing and exploring that data * Making that data quickly accessible and comprehensible * A survey of both established and emerging Open Source tools available in this area
