Infrastructure - physical, virtual, cloud, hybrid, containerized - is the underlying layer to provide the relevant resources and services for applications. There are several challenges when monitoring infrastructure:
Monitoring software installation needs to scale and be low maintenance;
- Discover all relevant components with their configuration, and ensure that the data is current;
- Track changes;
- Relate infrastructure issues to application impact, and vice versa.
Especially in modern architectures the infrastructure is constantly changing and leverages concepts like clustering and autoscaling to ensure reliability, scaling, and flexibility.
Instana ensures that at any time the infrastructure is monitored and represented as it is. All issues and changes that are detected on the infrastructure are constantly related to any occurring issues and incidents on the application and end user level - giving the users a comprehensive understanding of all parts that deliver the application.
