4 Golden Signals of Application Health & Performance
Best practices for measuring what matters when it comes to health and performance of multi-cloud applications
With the advent of containerization and modern cloud platforms, applications are rapidly going through a paradigm shift from monolithic to distributed architectures. This rapid change comes with operational implications for DevOps engineers and Site Reliability Engineers (SREs) because these distributed architectures expose a different kind of complexity, rendering most existing monitoring products, that were designed with code-level complexity in mind, ineffective.
In this white paper, we focus on best practices for measuring what matters when it comes to health and performance of multi-cloud applications - what is referred to as “Golden Signals”. Monitoring and proactive alerting on these Golden Signals is critical for ensuring application uptime and meet Service Level Objectives (SLOs).
