We’re excited to announce that the definitive pulse of IT monitoring is back.The State of Monitoring 2017 Report is now available! In 2016, we launched the report to shine a light on the ever-changing and diverse landscape of IT monitoring. We wanted to explore how IT practitioners are tackling the challenges and opportunities posed by the increasing agility and complexity of IT applications and infrastructure.
Is your team ready for 2017? Featuring early release findings from BigPanda’s forthcoming State of Monitoring Report, our latest e-book takes a look at how key industry trends will affect IT operations in the upcoming year.
In the latest episode of our MonitoringScape Live podcast series, we sit down with Jason Dixon, VP Product Strategy at Raintank, founder of Monitorama, and author of "Monitoring with Graphite: Tracking Dynamic Host and Application Metrics at Scale". Jason is joined by Adrian Cockcroft, Technology Fellow at Battery Ventures, former lead architect for Netflix, and author of the best-selling book, "Sun Performance and Tuning".
Those of us lucky enough to have attended the August MonitoringScape meetup at BigPanda with Adrian Cockcroft enjoyed the master of performance tuning as he waxed philosophical about why monitoring isn’t a solved problem after twenty plus years honing our craft. Spoiler-alert: it’s difficult to solve a problem that keeps changing.

Decompressing from an exhausting, inspirational few days at Knowledge16, the annual ServiceNow event...
From humble beginnings (my first Knowledge was a few hundred attendees in a tent in San Diego), Knowledge has become a global tour de force. This year, Mandalay Bay could barely contain more than 11,000 customers and partners (and the expo hall could barely contain more than 100 decibels of the tech equivalent of Queensryche). Getting into the keynote felt like rush hour on the subway in midtown Manhattan.
Given that the very development of Icinga arose from the need for additional functionalities in open source monitoring, it’s little surprise that the tool has become indispensable for so many IT professionals. Its configurability and flexibility allow for a sophisticated approach to monitoring, which is both scalable and extensible to large, complex environments.
Salesforce likely lost quite a bit of money last Tuesday. IDC estimates that the typical infrastructure failure costs organizations $100,000 per hour, while a critical application failure costs as much as $500,000 to $1 million per hour. Salesforce was down for over 20 hours and still continued to have service disruptions. This in turn translated to heavy financial loss for Salesforce customers worldwide, as they struggled to manage their lifeblood processes that depend on the SaaS giant. The Salesforce reputation struggled and the CEO, Marc Benioff, meted out public apologies on social channels.
For a bunch of data nerds, we’re glad to say that we can officially sit at the cool kids’ table. We’re proud to share that Gartner, the world’s premier information technology research and advisory company, has selected BigPanda as a “Cool Vendor” in Availability and Performance.
We all need to move fast in order to stay competitive. But the faster things move, the faster things break.
While many companies have made great strides towards automating application release and infrastructure management, automation for service assurance has been sorely lacking. That’s left Dev and Ops with a problem: how to effectively service alerts that have grown by orders of magnitude.
