Performance Monitoring - A Thirty Day View

I remember when I saw the movie "Super Size Me" by Morgan Spurlock.  I recall thinking about how much can happen in the course of just thirty days, not to mention how gross that food looked.  For people, 30 days seems like a long time at first, until you look back on what happened over the course of those 30 days.  It's easy to forget things that happened a week ago, not to mention a month back.  At CopperEgg, things move so fast that I really have to think hard to recall what we were focused on 30 days...

If my Computing is Unified, why can’t I Determine my System's Health?

Unified Computing is an attempt to recreate what was desireable about mainframes using industry standard systems, read X86-based, off-the-shelf memory, storage and networking equipment. The goal was to recentralize all of the components of modern computing systems into one package.Recently Cisco joined the ranks of those offering unified systems, which included eGenera, IBM, HP, Dell and others, in offering unified computing systems. Ciscso, by the way, cleverly named their products Unified Computing Systems or...

Cloud Monitoring Throughout the Application Lifecycle

Cloud services performance monitoring should take place continuously, throughout all stages of an application’s lifecycle; during initial bring-up, working through scalability and availability, during the initial optimization phase and of course throughout the production lifespan.  The ability to acquire, store , visualize and analyze detailed performance metrics from all deployed instances, in real-time (seconds, not minutes), regardless of cloud services vendor or geographic location can mean the...
