Graphite Catches When Puppet is Changing Your Infrastructure

· DevOps Zone ·
Free Resource

Discover a centralized approach to monitor your virtual infrastructure, on-premise IT environment, and cloud infrastructure – all on a single platform.

Sometimes it is pretty obvious when Puppet changes something in your infrastructure and bad things happen in a big dramatic way. Other times it’s not so obvious. It can be invaluable to be able to correlate changes made by Puppet to other events happening in your infrastructure.

For example, in this diagram we have plotted the load average from a group of servers. Blue vertical lines mark points in time when puppet modified a resource on a host in the group. We can see that immediately following a puppet change the load spiked on one of the servers.

Code available on github:

Learn how to auto-discover your containers and monitor their performance, capture Docker host and container metrics to allocate host resources, and provision containers.
