In an ever changing and evolving technology environment, agility is key to keep pace with the disruptive application development changes. Software teams involved in application development specifically, using DevOps, are under pressure. Development teams must move faster than ever, test earlier, release early, release often and not compromise any quality or cost.
Traditional IT operational approaches are not sufficient to meet these new demands. Customers want application updates quickly and error free. To meet this demand, development teams are required to increase application release efficiency and frequency. That drives the need for enhanced collaboration, automation and information sharing among stakeholders. In an effort to achieve this seamless internal collaboration, many companies are turning to the DevOps approach. With both a technology focused world and these increased application delivery demands, it is no surprise that DevOps tools are a hot topic.
To realize the potential in DevOps, it is key to understand requirements and have it properly implemented. The DevOps toolbox contains many of element options. As a result, a wide variety of tools can be leveraged to meet specific requirements of DevOps from configuration management, integration management, delivery management and monitoring. Due to these options, it’s not uncommon for organizations to feel overwhelmed by the complexity of DevOps implementation and utilization.
The DevOps monitoring tool is one of the most important elements that facilitate increased awareness during each stage of the delivery pipeline. There are various aspects of monitoring that organizations need to consider. While monitoring existed long before DevOps became mainstream, DevOps has revolutionized the software development process.
Before undertaking any DevOps monitoring strategy, you should answer the following questions:
- Why do you want to monitor?
- What will you monitor?
- How exactly will you monitor?
DevOps tools for monitoring can improve visibility, productivity, achieve higher-performing systems and establish cross-functional collaboration. It could be argued that monitoring tools are the most essential and provide crucial information to ensure service uptime and optimal performance.
