As an SRE deploying Wavefront as Enterprise Monitoring-as-a-Service across your organization, you may be asking: Is there a good way to see which metric time series are writing the most points? How can I check how many data points are emitted per metric into Wavefront? Is my cluster running efficiently?
Recently, we had the pleasure to talk to Manu Mathew, Senior Manager – Performance Engineering from Secureworks. Manu shared his team’s journey of supporting rapid service growth, some of the monitoring challenges they faced along that journey and how they overcame those challenges. Here’s a recap of Manu’s fascinating story.
Earlier this week, we announced key enhancements to Wavefront’s application observability with support for span logs, context-enriched alerts, and unified status dashboards combining service, application, and the underlying system. In this blog, I will cover the details of Wavefront’s Integrated Application Observability and show you how it empowers SREs and developers to quickly troubleshoot any issue and find the root cause faster.
We are thrilled to announce the expansion of the Kubernetes observability experience in Wavefront with the next generation release of the Wavefront Collector for Kubernetes. This release has a significant number of changes that give Kubernetes operators, SREs and developers, richer visibility into the health, state, and performance of their Kubernetes environment. In addition, the auto-discovery capability in the Wavefront Collector for Kubernetes can identify and monitor your Kubernetes workloads.
Enterprises are increasingly adopting cloud for deploying applications and moving to a subscription-based business model for running their SaaS initiatives. Enterprise observability platforms, like Wavefront, have proven to be well suited for helping Dev, Ops, and centralized observability teams to ensure frictionless application SLAs, feature updates, and ultimately customer satisfaction. All these factors drive the need for accountability and cost management around the usage of Wavefront.
Yesterday, we announced the Wavefront Enhanced Enterprise Dashboarding UX. This major revamp of the Wavefront dashboard and chart building capabilities started with a single goal: make observability in Wavefront even easier and more intuitive, for novice users. To make dashboard customization easier, we focused on speed. With our new UI, you can create a dashboard in just a few clicks. You’ll spend less time tinkering and more time extracting insights from your data.
