Reference Architecture: Monitoring and Logging for Docker Enterprise Edition

Reference Architecture: Monitoring and Logging for Docker Enterprise Edition

Docker Enterprise Edition (EE) simplifies container orchestration and increases the flexibility and scalability of application deployments. However, the high level of automation create new challenges for monitoring and log management. Why? Because each container typically runs a single process, has its own environment, utilizes virtual networks, or has various methods of managing storage.
Performance Monitoring Essentials – Elasticsearch Edition

Performance Monitoring Essentials – Elasticsearch Edition

Elasticsearch is booming. Together with Logstash, a tool for collecting and processing logs, and Kibana, a tool for searching and visualizing data in Elasticsearch (collectively they comprise the “ELK stack”), adoption of Elasticsearch continues to grow by leaps and bounds. In this detailed booklet Sematext’s DevOps Evangelist, Stefan Thies, walks readers through Elasticsearch and ELK stack basics and supplies numerous graphs, diagrams and infographics to clearly explain the essential elements. There is also a “Top 10 Elasticsearch Metrics” list with corresponding explanations and screenshots. The booklet will be especially helpful to those readers new to Elasticsearch and ELK stack, and also to experienced users who want a quick start into performance monitoring.

And with clear writing, reusable examples, and unmatched advice, Lucene in Action, Second Edition is still the definitive guide to effectively integrating search into your applications. It introduces you to searching, sorting, and filtering, and covers the numerous improvements to Lucene since the first edition. Source code is for Lucene 3.0.1.
