For those of you attending next week’s DevOps Summit event in New York City (part of the larger Cloud Computing Expo) with an interest in topics like performance monitoring and processing metrics, log management, and distributed transaction tracing — at scale, no less! — then Sematext founder Otis Gospodnetić will be speaking your language on Wednesday, June 10.

Talk Summary

Application metrics, logs, and business KPIs are a goldmine. It’s easy to get started with the ELK stack (Elasticsearch, Logstash and Kibana) — you can see lots of people coming up with impressive dashboards, in less than a day, with no previous experience. Going from proof-of-concept to production tends to be a bit more difficult, unfortunately, and it tends to gobble up our attention, time, and money. In this talk Otis will share the architecture and decisions behind our services for handling large volumes of performance metrics, traces, logs, anomaly detection, alerts, etc. Attendees will follow data from its sources, its collection, aggregation, storage, and visualization. The talk will also cover the overview of some of the relevant technologies and their strengths and weaknesses, such as HBase, Elasticsearch, and Kafka.

  • Date: Wednesday, June 10
  • Time: 3:30 pm to 4:30 pm

Panel Discussion: Microservices and IoT Power

Otis will also be participating in a lunchtime panel discussion, also on June 10 (from 12:45 pm to 1:45 pm) with other tech industry experts called “Microservices and IoT Power” that dives deep into the important architectural principles behind implementing IoT solutions for the enterprise. Let’s face it, as remote IoT devices and sensors become increasingly intelligent, they become part of our distributed cloud environment, and we must architect and code accordingly.  It promises to contain buzzwords galore!


Let’s Talk About Elasticsearch, ELK Stack, Solr, Spark, Kafka, APM, Centralized Log Management, and…

We’ll be at Booth #230 in the DevOps Summit section of the floor, so stop by and say hello.  We’ll be demo-ing SPM performance monitoringLogsene Log Management and Analytics and Site Search Analytics, along with our usual interest in discussing Search and Big Data consulting topics and more.  Or just drop us an email or DM us if you’re not going to be in the Big Apple from June 9-11 but have interest in chatting.

Hope to see you in NYC next week!
