Monitor DevOps Applications

DevOps Monitoring

Deliver high quality software and services faster and more reliably

DevOps monitoring enables you to attain real-time visiblity in to the elements in the production environment and helps ensure that your applications run smoothly while also delivering the highest business value. It's an essential for companies that adopt a DevOps culture and approach.

What is DevOps monitoring?

DevOps bridges the gap between development and operations processes in an IT environment by driving production through continuous development, integration, testing, monitoring and feedback, delivery, and deployment. Proactive observation of the functionality and state of various processes to preempt the issues posed to control the outputs during each phase of DevOps is called DevOps monitoring. Monitoring DevOps makes it easier for admins to break each step into granular data which they can use to measure performance and minimize degradation. It gives a glimpse into the events in an asset's lifecycle thereby widening the visibility into the operational elements.

How to monitor DevOps?

The goal of DevOps is the rapid delivery of software. In order to ensure a smooth development cycle, it's imperative to identify and resolve potential issues quickly. Since various teams are working collectively, an insight into all the underlying operations at all times is indispensable. Continuous DevOps monitoring pipeline helps admins identify and solve crucial problems instantaneously with the help of various monitoring operations that constitute DevOps tracking or observability.

The three processes involved in DevOps monitoring are:

Infrastructure monitoring

An infrastructure monitor is an absolute necessity in any organization that employs technology to back its business. As part of DevOps application monitoring, it acts as a sentry that detects unsteady performance and ensures that the organizations can prevent surprise downtime.

A good infrastructure monitoring tool must be able to do the following:

  • Discover and map the dependencies of the applications automatically in an IT infrastructure.
  • Monitor the general availability (uptime) of all the applications in the domain.
  • Fetch and aggregate performance metrics in real-time.
  • Analyze faults and send out timely alerts.
  • Send specified alerts that are automated based on thresholds to avoid false alarms.
  • Gauge the trends in performance by analyzing the historical data.
  • Prognosticate resource usage and growth through AI-assisted analytics.

ManageEngine Applications Manager's infrastructure monitoring capabilities exceed most tools available in the market, as it supports over 150 technologies spanning servers, cloud, containers, websites, web servers, applications, databases, VMs, converged infrastructure, services, big data elements, middleware & messaging components and ERP applications. It also fulfills all the prerequisites mentioned above, making it the ideal monitoring solution for IT infrastructure.

Application performance monitoring

Another aspect of DevOps monitoring is application performance monitoring (APM). Application performance management enables DevOps admins to track and monitor all facets of an application. Applications Manager offers deep application management capabilities that enable DevOps teams to monitor DevOps applications, analyze their performance, and identify imminent problems such as slow-running queries, saturated resources, and high latency.

With Applications Manager's APM tool, DevOps admins can:

  • Track and monitor application resource consumption metrics such as memory, CPU, and Disk.
  • Trace requests end-to-end across distributed systems.
  • Quantify user satisfaction levels by measuring response times, throughput, requests, errors, Apdex scores.
  • Monitor communication between applications to determine the source of issues.
  • Diagnose complex problems in production by profiling threads instead of thread dumping.
  • Keep an eye on database operations.
  • Detect and diagnose various elements behind slow transactions.

Synthetic Monitoring

Synthetic monitoring empowers DevOps teams to proactively identify and fix performance issues before they impact users by simulating the user's journey through applications and websites. Applications Manager has a customizable DevOps monitoring dashboard that helps understand how users interact with applications and how your applications react to probable user actions.

This wing of DevOps monitoring increases the perception into the underlying operations and provides a comprehensive view of the application performance. By mandating synthetic monitoring in your DevOps monitoring strategy, you can vastly improve the performance, reliability, and uptime of your applications.

Benefits of DevOps monitoring:

The main aim of DevOps monitoring is to make sure the DevOps pipeline remains unhindered by external factors.

With the aid of a DevOps monitor software, you reap benefits such as:

  • Better visibility into the underlying operations
  • Early detection of errors
  • Accurately pinpoint the root cause of errors
  • Improved user experience
  • Reduced MTTR
  • Minimal downtime
  • Increased coordination between teams
