Container Monitoring: Top Docker Metrics to Watch
By Stefan Thies
Monitoring of Docker environments is challenging. Why? Because each container
typically runs a single process, has its own environment, utilizes virtual
networks, or has various methods of managing storage. Traditional monitoring
solutions take metrics from each server and applications they run. These
servers and applications running on them are typically very static, with very
long uptimes. Docker deployments are different: a set of containers may run
many applications, all sharing the resources of one or more underlying hosts.
It's not uncommon for Docker servers to run thousands of short-term
containers (e.g., for batch jobs) while a set of permanent services runs in
parallel. Traditional monitoring tools not used to such dynamic environments
are not suited for such deployments. On the other hand, s... (more)
Docker Monitoring Doesn't Need to Be So Hard
Everyone wants to use containers, but monitoring containers is hard. New

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in
enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and
increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes
more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital
exhaust' from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing,
APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things,
and now even blockchain.

Going Serverless the Amazon Lambda Way? Stay Calm and Monitor On!
While some vendors scramble to create and sell you a fancy solution for
monitoring your spanking new Amazon Lambdas, hear how you can do it on the
cheap using just built-in Java APIs yourself. By exploiting a little-known
fact that Lambdas aren't exactly single threaded, you can effectively
identify hot spots in your serverless code.
In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, David Martin, Principal Product Owner at
CA Technologies, will give a live demonstration and code walkthrough, showing
how to overcome the challenges of monitoring S3 and RDS. He will provide an
overview of necessary Amazon Lambda concepts and discuss how to integrate the
monitoring data with other tools.
This presentation is for experienced Java coders, but does not require any
familiarity with Amazon Lambdas specifically.

With billions of sensors deployed worldwide, the amount of machine-generated data will soon exceed what our networks can handle. But consumers and businesses will expect seamless experiences and real-time responsiveness. What does this mean for IoT devices and the infrastructure that supports them? More of the data will need to be handled at - or closer to - the devices themselves.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
