Monitoring of infrastructure and applications is key to success. Your Swift Object Storage cluster is no exception. You need to know what your environment is doing and how it is doing at all times. You also need to be able to learn from it and be able to predict issues coming up. Setting up continuous monitoring of your infrastructure and being able to alert in real-time on failures or conditions is a requirement.
In this session Martin Lanner with SwiftStack will go through an ELK stack setup and provide hands-on examples for how to monitor an existing Swift cluster. In the past few years organizations have started to move from monitoring solutions that detect a certain state and alert on it, to more dynamic solutions like the Elasticsearch, Logstash, Kibana (ELK) stack.
