I’m a senior solutions engineer here at Grafana Labs, but I recently found myself trying to solve a real-world problem in my homelab. The issue was, I have some services running there and I want to be able to access my home network when I’m away.

Rocky Linux is a community-driven, open source operating system that is backed by CIQ, the primary sponsor and support provider. This OS is a powerful alternative for those seeking a downstream, binary-compatible option to Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL). CIQ supports Rocky Linux as a response to changes in the CentOS project, which is no longer maintained as a stable downstream clone of RHEL.

Sift is a machine-learning-powered diagnostic feature in Grafana Cloud that SREs and DevOps teams can use to automate routine parts of incident investigation, such as searching for new errors in logs, surfacing recent deployments, or identifying overloaded Kubernetes nodes. We want Sift to springboard you into an investigation, so useful context is already there by the time you see an alert or declare an incident.
