Unified Monitoring and the Paradox of IT Culture Change

I have a coffee mug on my desk that I got from a sales manager many years ago. It’s now filled with pens (I don’t drink coffee), but I take a look at it once in a while.

Deploy Application and Infrastructure Monitoring to Ensure Successful Migrations and Upgrades

Constant changes happen in today’s digital world. New versions of applications, databases, middleware, and virtualization technologies are being released regularly – at least once every 6-12 months.

As DevOps gets adopted on a broader scale, changes to applications will be even more frequent.


Automated Monitoring for CRI-O

CRI-O is a Cloud Native Computing Foundation incubating project.

It is a lightweight alternative to using Docker as the runtime for Kubernetes (K8s).” CRI-O allows K8s to use any OCI-compliant runtime for running pods. CRI-O has support for OCI container images and is able to pull from any container registry.


Memory leak detection - How to find, eliminate, and avoid

That doesn’t mean that you’re in the clear when it comes to memory leaks though. The reality is that memory leaks can strike any application in any language.
