How to Monitor Application Performance in a Container-Based World - Fabio Giannetti, & Ken Owens, Cisco

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Application performance monitoring has always been a difficult problem for developers to implement, but it’s only getting harder. As application architectures shift to container-based microservices, the number of components typically rises and it becomes more difficult to understand how any given microservice is related to the total application performance profile. In this talk, we’ll discuss how Cisco developed a monitoring solution for Mantl, Cisco’s open source container stack based on Kubernetes. The solution leverages response-time data from Mantl and data from a number of open source projects, including Google cAdvisor, OpenStack Monasca, and Apache Kafka. We’ll discuss how we architected the solution, the features it provides, and why network traffic monitoring is critical when dealing with microservices.
