THWACKcamp 2018 preview- Monitoring Microservices: IT’s Newest Hot Mess

It’s almost that time of year! We’re in full preparation mode for THWACKcamp™ 2018 and can’t wait for you to experience our sessions. Covering everything from network monitoring and management, virtualization, logging, and more, this year’s lineup goes further into making sure you hear the best from our pool of tech maestros (including industry experts and SolarWinds Head Geeks™) who are as passionate about these topics as you are. If you haven’t registered, be sure to do so soon!

While all the sessions sound enticing, I’m inclined to recommend you attend “Monitoring Microservices: IT’s Newest Hot Mess.” In this session Karlo Zatylny, SolarWinds principal architect, and Lee Calcote, SolarWinds head of technology strategy, and I will show you how microservices are different from other applications, when performance bottlenecks most frequently occur, and where you can add monitoring for microservices to stay one step ahead of trouble. We’ll also discuss how to extend existing infrastructure dashboards to include microservice workloads, cut troubleshooting time, and add new business metrics that measure the business goals driving microservices in the first place.

Now in its 7th year, THWACKcamp is the two-day premier virtual IT learning event that brings fully packed session tracks to help you learn and grow even more as a technology professional. Join thousands of skilled admins around the world in registering for this 100% free event. You won’t want to be anywhere else on October 17-18.

Looking forward to it.  Looks like a good session.

Level 20

Monitoring of these microservices seems to just mean some new code needs to be written.  I would think it would be best if the container technology supported some of this as well.



About the Author
I'm the Head Geek and technical marketing director at SolarWinds, (which basically means I'm an mature geek in the services of the product team). When I say geek I mean Geek, with extreme prejudice. I started writing assembly on my Apple II, got a BITNET email account in 1984, ran a BBS @ 300 baud, survived X.25, abused Token Ring, got some JavaScript award love in '96, and my hack flight notification service still backs Along the way in various jobs I’ve been a developer, SE, PM, PMM, and now principal evangelist. (Let us all join hands around the server.) Over 10 years at SolarWinds I’ve hatched our online live demo systems, managed the SolarWinds Certified Professional program, launched the Head Geek program, helmed SolarWinds Lab and THWACKcamp, and these days I’m focused on the hairball that is Hybrid IT, Cloud, DevOps and helping IT admins learn new skills not just to manage increasing complexity, but accelerate their careers. I’m always looking for new and more fiendish ways to use our products- just like our customers. And when I have a few spare minutes I fly a little when the weather is good.
