Monitoring System Audit

We review your current monitoring systems and recommend changes and the adoption of best practices so you know what’s wrong immediately and have the information needed to fix it.

Classic monitoring systems do not cover all layers of the application architecture. They can embrace only some separate layers. At the same time, businesses create new products very often, up to several releases per day.

Thus, it is very difficult to maintain up-to-date monitoring system with constantly-changing functionality and services. Therefore, engineers and the business face a new challenge: to choose a monitoring strategy that will evaluate both the operation of the system as a whole and the operation of individual subsystems.

That requires a comprehensive approach that will include project analysis in several areas:

  1. Business logic: We determine the project indicators that are critical for your business and for your company in general.
  2. Architecture: We identify key services (their integrations and communications), the disruption of which will lead to downtime of your business as a whole and/or its individual units.
  3. Infrastructure: We collect low-level metrics (status of the equipment and communication channels and resource consumption).

Your team of developers and Devops engineers might spend a lot of time on monitoring instead of creating new products and developing new functionality. Do not waste your resources -  let DevOpsProdigy audit your monitoring system.
