Mobile SDKs (software developments kits); love them or hate them, they're here to stay. They provide our apps with all sorts of functionality that would be incredibly time consuming to build, and they give us another means to monetize our apps. While it would be difficult to argue that SDKs aren’t useful, it’s also hard for developers to get a good idea of the amount of resources used by each SDK once the app is in production ...
Datadog announced its new integration with Cloud Foundry, an open-source application platform that provides streamlined application development and deployment by leveraging cloud-based infrastructure.
Cloud Foundry is widely used within large enterprise organizations as they move to microservices architectures, continuous delivery methods, and DevOps practices. Due to Cloud Foundry’s central role in application deployment and operations, monitoring Cloud Foundry’s various components is crucial for maintaining the health and performance of large applications.
“Cloud Foundry has become the leading application deployment platform for many of our enterprise customers that have large-scale, multi-team environments,” said Ilan Rabinovitch, Director of Product Management at Datadog. “Our latest integration enables Cloud Foundry cluster operators to automatically monitor the health of their environments.”
Datadog’s Cloud Foundry integration works by collecting metrics that determine cluster health by component and by resource consumption. Metrics can be collected from critical Cloud Foundry components including BOSH, Cloud Controller, Loggregator, Gorouter, and Diego. These metrics can then be visualized so DevOps teams can monitor their performance, identify patterns and anomalies, and create alerts.
