One of the most crucial part is monitoring the whole system.
Monitoring tools track the performance and availability of software applications and infrastructure. Some common types of monitoring tools include:
- Application performance monitoring (APM) tools: These tools are used to monitor the performance of individual applications or services. They can track response time, error rates, and resource utilization metrics.
- Infrastructure monitoring tools: These tools monitor the performance and availability of servers, networks, and other infrastructure components. They can track CPU usage, memory usage, and network traffic metrics.
- Log monitoring tools collect and analyze log data from applications and infrastructure components. They can identify errors, trends, and patterns in the data.
- Synthetic monitoring tools: These tools are used to simulate user interactions with applications and track the performance of those interactions. This can be useful for detecting performance issues that might not be apparent from real user traffic.
- Network monitoring tools: These tools are used to monitor the performance and availability of networks and networked devices. They can track bandwidth usage, latency, and packet loss metrics.
We’re actively using monitoring tools to make Applications and Infra available on 7/24 and making self-responsive systems.
