Many of our organizations are drowning in monitoring data or juggling handfuls of tools, but have we truly achieved observability of our organizational and service health? How do we stop measuring CPU and start focusing on customer satisfaction and organizational success?
With a growing number of monitoring projects and hundreds of monitoring services vying for your attention and business, it’s difficult to determine which tool to pick. How do you avoid metric overload and pager fatigue? The answer is rarely a single tool—much like the Unix toolchain, monitoring tools are complementary rather than competitive.
Ilan Rabinovitch breaks down the expansive landscape of monitoring tooling to help you connect the dots between the different tools in your monitoring tool belt and presents a framework for 360-degree observability. You’ll leave with a clear understanding of the monitoring landscape and how the different categories of tools can connect to answer critical questions about the health of your services, teams, and customers.
Ilan Rabinovitch is vice president of product and community at Datadog, where he spends his days diving into container monitoring metrics, collaborating with Datadog’s open source community, and evangelizing observability best practices. Previously, Ilan spent a number of years leading infrastructure and reliability engineering teams at organizations such as Ooyala and Edmunds.com. He’s active in the open source and DevOps communities, where he is a co-organizer of events such as SCALE, Texas Linux Fest, and a number of devopsdays events.
