The Solarwinds Monitoring Cloud companies are experts in how to do monitoring at scale in very high throughput environments. During our time running on the cloud, we’ve used many DevOps concepts, including automation, to build a fully-instrumented stack from infrastructure all the way through the application that allows us to have observability into all areas of the stack and from multiple angles including: 

  • Infrastructure Metrics 
  • Application Metrics
  • Logging 
  • Uptime Monitoring 
  • Distributed Tracing 

 This talk will discuss many of the different instrumentation techniques we use to monitor our own infrastructure and show how monitoring almost everything we can find is a normal part of how we run our business.
