Monitoring Modern


The elasticity and nearly infinite scalability of the cloud have transformed IT infrastructure. Modern infrastructure is now made up of constantly changing, often short-lived VMs or containers. This has elevated the need for new methods and new tools for monitoring.

In this eBook, we outline an effective framework for monitoring modern infrastructure and applications, however large or dynamic they may be.


  • Collect the metrics and events that provide the most visibility into your environment
  • Tag your metrics for on-the-fly aggregation and effortless scaling
  • Design alerts that surface real problems while minimizing false alarms
  • Systematically approach performance problems to identify root causes
