OpenShift Commons Briefing Summary

A new approach to monitoring is required for cloud-native environments enabled by technologies like OpenShift. Services and instances are dynamic, regularly moving between machines, limiting the utility of traditional monitoring solutions. The Prometheus system is designed to run in such environments, handling both their scale and rate of change.

In this session, Brian Brazil, Founder, and core Prometheus developer, explains the the core ideas behind Prometheus, and describes how to get useful metrics from your applications, how to process that data, getting alerts on what matters, and creating dashboards to aid debugging on OpenShift.
