Data and metrics are becoming increasingly critical to successful software development, and especially in driving DevOps initiatives. One way to ensure that data is being collected efficiently and regularly is through continuous monitoring. Continuous monitoring is a powerful practice to ensure the right data is being collected and analyzed in order to improve the efficiency of software development and delivery. However, collecting the right information can be a challenging task and taking on a continuous monitoring initiative can be daunting. What should you monitor? How can you strike the right balance with how much you monitor?
Exadel CTO, Oleg Boyko, recently addressed these questions and more in his article “Getting Started With Continuous Monitoring” on DevOps.com. Give it a read for an in-depth look at continuous monitoring best practices.
