Application Monitoring in a Post-Server World [Webinar]

Application Monitoring in a Post-Server World
Wednesday, Dec. 2, 2015 @ 2 p.m. ET (11 a.m. PT)

We believe that the move toward microservices in Docker, EC2, and Lambda points to a shift toward shorter-lived resources, changing the landscape in several ways. These new application architectures are driving increased agility and efficiency. But while providing developers with inherent scalability, elasticity, and flexibility, they also present new challenges for application monitoring.

The days of static server monitoring with a single health and status check are over. Today you need to know how your entire ecosystem of AWS EC2 instances is performing, especially since many are short lived and may only exist for a few minutes. With such transient, ephemeral resources, there is no server to monitor—you need to understand performance along the lines of computational intent. And for this you need to know the context in which these resources are performing.

Kevin McGuireJoin Kevin McGuire, Director of Engineering at New Relic, for this free, informative webinar. Kevin will discuss how

  • Monitoring Docker has helped us rethink how we monitor and analyze AWS.
  • Contextual information like instance size, availability zone, and tags can be used to drive an understanding of transient infrastructure behavior and application performance.
  • Integrating status information can give you a more accurate view of EC2 lifecycle and health.
  • Information helps power your ability to analyze and display that performance information in new and powerful ways.

The end of the webinar will feature a Q&A period with Kevin where you can get your specific questions about application monitoring and AWS answered.
