Monitoring means many things to many people. This talk looks at Systems Monitoring, that is how to keep an eye on a given system and use this as part of overall management of a system. This talk will cover Why one monitors, What to monitor, How to monitor, the general design of a monitoring system and how Prometheus is a good fit for this in terms of instrumentation, consoles, alerts, general system health and sanity.
Prometheus is a next-generation monitoring system publicly announced earlier this year, developed by companies including SoundCloud, locals Boxever and Docker. Since launch there has been wide-spread interest, and many community contributions.
