The current high-quality service obsession in the IT environment has pushed the monitoring measures to new standards of growth and resilience. The astronomical amount of data streams demands an architecture that never goes down. The current DevOps monitoring scenario needs to be operationally intelligent, analytics friendly, and accelerated. This type of monitoring system must pass the metric growth with higher scrutiny at greater speed. That is when the entire mechanism of DevOps will be fruitful in meeting the highest standards of customer experience. Efficient monitoring leverages the experience of processing the data at all sizes and levels. This is possible with the help of histograms that expose every minute detail of latency behavior. Such latency is distinctly depicted for each traffic segment based on a machine learning algorithm.
Machine learning-based monitoring derives usage patterns and delivers feedback to the production. Real User Monitoring measures the experience from the user’s browser. In synthetic monitoring, the system detects the issues based upon the synthetic projection of user behavior rather than real-time user experience. Proactive monitoring works both ways. While standard monitors work forward in the background, additional tools work backward to detect any overlooked issues. A well-defined combination of different tools and software can carve the path to effective and reliable telemetry.
Time to Detect: The first part of the pipeline is to detect the issues at the highest possible speed. Then the issue is reported as diagnostic data to the developers.
Time to Mitigate: The development section will address the issue to mitigate its effects on the user. Time to Resolve: This is the time taken to fully clean up the problems and to ensure that it won’t arise again.
Tracking: Tracking keeps an overall record of the number of bugs arising and the time taken to address them to each stage of the pipeline. Here are a few essential jobs of tracking:
Performance: This includes memory usage, bottlenecks, CPU consumption, etc.
Availability: See whether the application is available 24*7 without any downtime.
Security Scans: Test for breaches and vulnerability.
Time: Check the duration when the bug was detected and resolved.
Quantity: How many issues have occurred in a set period of time.
Frequency: What is the average repetition of the error.
Failures: Record and report complete development and deployment failures.
Overall: Track the overall health of the development operations loop.
Aside from the mainstream monitoring methods, the assessment of an application is largely based on Key Performance Indicators. Development teams can also set standards which when the application does not meet, the team can get alerts. The actual process of 24 * 7 DevOps Monitoring is much detailed and user-centric.
