Server monitoring for Tor exit nodes

We had a chance to catch up with Kenan Sulayman, who runs some of the biggest Tor servers in the world. Read on to learn about server monitoring for high-throughput environments, network visibility, and optimizing application code versus the network. Monitoring Tor exit nodes Tor is short for The Onion Router (thus the logo) and was initially a worldw

New GKE Installation for Docker Monitoring

Stuff just takes…too…long these days. How long should you wait, for example , to monitor your docker containers on GKE? “Too long” is the answer you get most places. That’s why we just launched our new, super-sleek, telsa-would-be-impressed-at-how-fast-this-is Google Container Engine integration. How does it work? Just sign in with Google

Monitoring Docker and Kubernetes at WayBlazer

Moving Docker into production is still as much art as it is science. We caught up with Kevin Kuhl and Kevin Cashman at WayBlazer to talk about monitoring Docker and Kubernetes, selecting the right metrics to focus on, deciding what to run with Kubernetes, and diagnosing the “domino effect” in a Kubernetes failover.Introducing WayBlazerWayBlazer is the world’

Operating systems are a huge pile of technical debt

Developers are responsible for creating new, powerful software. This is what we do, day in and day out. But much of the software we create is based on the work of others. It’s not only their software from yesterday, but also from years or decades before. That creates a complex set of challenges when it comes to understanding the behavior of our own software,

When APM fails: A 502 troubleshooting tale

Too often monitoring and performance management tools are good at giving you the “what” of your software but don’t help with the “why.” But, it’s usually the “why” that eats up hours or days of your time. Tracking down bugs and performance issues can be incredibly tricky, no matter how many good tools you have at your disposal. This is a real customer cas

Visualizing AWS Storage with Real-Time Latency Spectrograms

Having worked for several years in the wireless networking space, I always found spectrum analyzers like this one extremely useful. I always found such a representation of the wireless spectrum not only visually cool, but also useful to understand trends, spot bottlenecks and identify outliers. A bunch of attempts have been done to apply this kind of visua
