Cloud-native application monitoring powered by Riverbed and Elasticsearch

UMass Lowell Innovation Hub 110 Canal St., 3rd Floor , Lowell, ma 01853 (map)

Come learn how we improved performance testing for Cloud-native applications by integrating Elasticsearch with Riverbed application performance monitoring (APM). The objective was to create realistic performance testing that was representative of real-world usage of the application.

DATA QUALITY IS EVERYTHING! Elasticsearch was used for log ingestion, SNMP Traps, Syslog, and infrastructure monitoring. In this talk we'll cover:

• How we developed focused Kibana dashboards and alerts that would combine data collected by AppInternals and other machine data collected by Elasticsearch.

• We'll walk you through how we capture data and present this data in Kibana, this includes three types of date:

- Information about objects under monitoring and their topology – such

as an instance running on (which servers), and which server tags are

used to groups the servers.

- Metrics – monitoring objects; including specific counts of normal, slow,

very slow transactions.

- Alerts – generated by AppInternals via SNMP channel.
