AWS UG North #37

The next AWS User Group North Event will be on the 30th of April in the offices in Manchester. We'll add more details as and when they become available. Speakers: Emanuil Tolev, Community Advocate, "Hiring a Private Investigator for your app" It has been a busy several years in monitoring and observability. Logging solutions are widely deployed, from scp+grep to proper federated logging. Collecting centralised server environment and resources metrics has also matured significantly. In this talk we'll introduce the next layer in this onion - in-depth Application Performance Monitoring (APM). While other parts of the monitoring stack could be described as watchpeople, APM plays much more of a detective role, bringing ever more metrics into increasingly complex UIs to suss out performance bottlenecks.We'll talk a bit about the history of APM and show a brief demo of a free APM system (made by Elastic). We'll reflect on a case study of 2 of the speaker's old clients, 2 small web technology-driven organisations which could have gotten more out of their APM systems. We will look at why that might be and how you could do better - what's a good vendor-agnostic way to pick an APM tool.
