Share: VictoriaMetrics is a monitoring solution. It was designed to collect and process telemetry from many systems, provide a retrospective view, and forecast metrics for capacity planning. But what about monitoring VictoriaMetrics itself? There is one of the software development approaches called Observability Driven Development (ODD). In a nutshell, it means that developers should always keep in mind that software needs to be transparent to the person who uses it. Does your software make backups?
Grafana Labs Mimir is a new time series database under AGPLv3-license. The engineering team did a great job by taking the best from Cortex TSDB, reducing its complexity and improving scalability in the same time. According to tests by Grafana Labs, Mimir can scale to a billion active time series and 50 million samples/s ingestion rate.

We need to remove a vmstorage node from VictoriaMetrics cluster gracefully. Every vmstorage node contains its own portion of data and removing the vmstorage node from the cluster creates gaps in the graph (because replication is out of scope).
When looking for a highly scalable time series database, there are a number of criteria to investigate and evaluate. First up, it’s always a good idea to consider open source software. It’s more likely to have gone through comprehensive troubleshooting, it’s typically more reliable as it has more timely and widespread peer-review, it better guarantees technology independence, it’s easier to find engineers who are familiar with it and it has great security.

Observability has become a critical part of many companies and their business. So did requirements for the systems which collect and store business-critical metrics. Monitoring systems need to be reliable, scalable, fast, and preferably cost-effective. Such features of any monitoring system never come for free or out of the box – you need people, a team of professionals who can build and manage it.

In this blog post we’re going to walk you through how to monitor Proxmox VE via Managed VictoriaMetrics and its vmagent, including a step by step guide on how to set up, configure and visualise this environment. Proxmox VE is a complete, open-source server management platform for enterprise virtualization. It tightly integrates the KVM hypervisor and Linux Containers (LXC), software-defined storage and networking functionality, on a single platform.

ARM processors become more popular and more cost-effective according to many benchmarks. One of them was made by Percona for MySQL. Some of our users reported issues with VictoriaMetrics at AWS Graviton instances. The main concerns were higher CPU and disk IO usage compared to x86 instances of the same size and for the same workload. By that time, we verified that VictoriaMetrics works fine for raspberry and IoT devices, but didn’t do any optimizations for ARM builds.

Building a company around free software product is not something new. What's less common is creating a company in order to build a free software product. This talk will cover our story of creating time series database, the lessons we learned, the mistakes we made. The free software world has changed over the last years. The one thing remains essential - importance of community, people who use the product.

Recently, #PMM replaced Prometheus with #VictoriaMetrics. In the talk we want to cover the motivation behind this transition, the architecture and internals of PMM and technical details of the replacement. The talk is going to be held by members of both organizations who took a part in migration: #Percona and VictoriaMetrics.
