Overview

Microservice monitoring of golden signals

Containerized applications share an intricate web of microservices that enable efficiency but make it difficult to isolate root causes when issues arise.

Monitoring the four standardized golden signals (latency, errors, traffic and saturation) quickly identifies the symptoms of a problem at the microservice level. Eliminating time-consuming discovery-phase actions helps teams resolve issues quickly whether in VM, container or hybrid environments.

Get immediate notification

The incident view notifies the site reliability engineer of incidents occurring within applications and quickly provides detailed context at the microservice level.

Determine impact scope

Golden signals screen

Determine impact scope

Troubleshoot and triage incidents at the microservice level using the SRE golden signals, with no special code-language expertise required.

Extract additional detail

Topology view screen

Extract additional detail

Use the topology view to see the exact point in time a microservice issued occurred. Identify the issue and view the service in its previously healthy state to determine root cause.
