Monitoring Microservices and Containerized Applications: Deployment, Configuration, and Best Practices for Prometheus and Alert Manager
Discover the methodologies and best practices for getting started with container services monitoring using Prometheus, AppDynamics, and Dynatrace. The book begins with the basics of working with the containerization and microservices architecture while establishing the need for monitoring and management technologies. You’ll go through hands-on deployment, configuration, and best practices for Prometheus. Next, you’ll delve deeper into monitoring of container ecosystems for availability, performance, and logs, and then cover the reporting capabilities of Prometheus. Further, you’ll move on to advanced topics of extending Prometheus including how to develop new use cases and scenarios.
You’ll then use enterprise tools such as AppDynamics and Wavefront to discover deeper application monitoring best practices. You’ll conclude with fully automated deployment of the monitoring and management platforms integrated with the container ecosystem using infrastructure-as -code tools such as Jenkins, Ansible and Terraform. The book provides sample code and best practices for you to look at container monitoring from a holistic viewpoint.
