Reduce Risk with Monitoring Shared Across Dev and Ops

Cloud services, open-source technologies, and microservices architectures enable only part of a high velocity release cycle. Organizational structure and release cycle processes are the foundation for enabling a “move fast without breaking things” culture. Create a safety net with the right level of shared visibility across development and operations teams for every component of your cloud app.

 

Collaborate to Troubleshoot across Teams

With SignalFx, DevOps teams are agile in their troubleshooting and easily share information — they monitor and communicate using a common platform. The risk of rapid innovation is reduced by enabling real-time visibility from every layer of the application through a single source.

  • Break down communication barriers between cross-functional teams using one source of information
  • Avoid finger pointing and shorten feedback loops with real-time and historical views across your environment
  • Share dashboards and pass information in a collective effort without losing the original insight

Define an Early Warning System with Cloud Ready Alerts

React to problems faster with the alerts you need and none that you don’t. Evolve your alerts to capture what’s changed and eliminate noise and alert fatigue with conditions that reflect the reality of cloud architected applications.

  • Monitor any combination of incoming data and derived metrics, including percentile, variance, and rate of change
  • Describe any desired alert condition with dynamic thresholds, flexible trigger/clear conditions, and multiple severity levels
  • Reduce the iterative trial-and-error process by tuning alerts to your specific condition

Surface Outliers that Matter

SignalFx helps you identify anomalous behavior in your application so you know where your attention is required. Determining the best alert conditions in cloud environments can be a complex process so SignalFx includes pre-built alert conditions and capabilities designed for cloud operations, saving customers time when setting up and operating their application.

  • Correlate metrics from every layer of your cloud application to understand how dependencies impact performance
  • Visualize whether service-level behavior is normal compared to its historical performance or across groups and services
  • Spot outliers as they happen and pinpoint uncharacteristic behavior prior to any issue

Codify Best Practices in Monitoring Your App

Learn from the experiences of your peers and retain the expert knowledge. SignalFx helps you to create a source of intelligence to eliminate silos so your organization can communicate, remediate issues, and preserve SLAs.

  • Shorten time to insight with production-ready dashboards for a breadth of integrations
  • Leverage SignalFx field-tested alert templates and pre-packaged alert conditions as a starting point for your specific use case
  • Create easy-to-maintain, templated content and enable adoption from a centralized team
