Monitoring Containerized Application Environments with Time Series Data
Session date: Oct 24, 2019 11:00am (Pacific Time)
Monitoring solutions often operate in silos, following the traditional IT organizational structure: infrastructure, network and applications teams. Further, such solutions sometimes operate without the necessary granular visibility into modern containerized environments. Although knowing what is occurring in each aspect of the IT environment is valuable, being able to correlate data from different layers and data sources is fundamental to meet today’s expectations on quality and avoid impacting results.
Monitoring must provide a good understanding of what is going on and what could be brewing undetected. In order to be well-equipped and pursue the goal of persistent satisfactory user experience, IT Operations should dig deeper into inter and intra-container traffic and identify where trouble starts, as well as correlate data from multiple sources for a complete view of the application environment.
In this webinar, Luca Deri, founder of ntop, will share
- How to use InfluxDB to collect real-time network traffic monitoring metrics and events to support their ntopng platform
- How to make the switch from RRD to InfluxDB and what the data architecture looks like
- The challenges and successes of using InfluxDB at ntop.
