Prometheus is a CNCF graduated project for monitoring and alerting. It is one of the most widely used monitoring and alerting tools in the Kubernetes ecosystem. Rancher users can leverage Prometheus quickly by using the built-in monitoring stack. Prometheus stores its metrics as a time series database on the local disk. Prometheus local storage is limited by the size of the disk and amount of metrics it can retain.
It’s no secret that COVID-19 is negatively impacting businesses of all sizes in a number of ways. Some more obvious than others.

But among all the uncertainty, one thing has become clearer than ever: even when we’re apart, we’re all in this together. And teamwork has never been more important.
In this post, we will show how it’s easily possible to monitor AWS Lambda with Sysdig Monitor. By leveraging existing Prometheus ingestion with Sysdig, you will be able to monitor serverless services with a single-pane-of-glass approach, giving you the confidence to run these services in production.
Observability changes the way you understand and interact with your applications in production. Beyond knowing what’s happening in prod, observability is also a compass that helps you discover what’s happening on the way to production. Pierre Tessier joins us on Raw & Real to talk about how Honeycomb uses observability to improve the systems that support our production applications.
In an evolving world, the modernization of the security operations center (SOC) is pivotal to the success of digital transformation initiatives. Security teams, however, are facing a shortage of cybersecurity professionals and struggling to detect and prioritize high-priority threats. Analysts in data-driven organizations can combat these issues by bringing people, process and technology together.
