Keep going with infrastructure improvement, I stayed some time on monitoring issue. Generally monitoring is inseparable component of DevOps workflow. It allows to clearly control each subject of maintained service.
Monitoring work is interesting as well as complicated. This field, like database, doesn’t have ready solutions for any kind of project. For each situation you have to figure out what metrics are special and what graphs you must check at first.
Wowza API can promote to track its data just in time. But by default all we have is a special monitoring webpage at the Wowza Streaming Engine Manager. Configuration of your own monitoring would be the best solution for streaming infrastructure control. By means of JMX console we can get as much data as possible for Java application. By means of Zabbix we can visualize all data we’ve got from JMX.
With contemporary monitoring systems you can monitor whatever you wish. All you need – understand technology of data gathering and visualizing. 2016 year serves thousands of ways to perform it. At this post I’ll show up one of the most popular ways to do it – monitoring customization with Zabbix.
