Live Webinar – 7/22/2020 10AM PST: GroundWork Monitor Enterprise 8 with Elasticsearch Integration

GroundWork & Elasticsearch®
Wednesday, July 22nd at 10AM PST

REGISTER

Please register and join us Wednesday, July 22nd at 10AM PST for a live Webinar introducing our latest version of GroundWork Monitor Enterprise, 8.1.0. We’ll be featuring Integration with Elasticsearch®, an open source database system useful for log message monitoring.

  • The GroundWork Elastic connector allows unification of the monitoring you do in Elastic Stack with GroundWork
  • Monitoring log and other messages with Elastic Stack® is robust, flexible and easy to configure, however it’s siloed into Elastic and not unified with the network monitoring, server monitoring, and cloud monitoring you do in GroundWork
  • Queries you write in Elastic Stack turn into services in GroundWork, just like other metrics

We’ll discuss:

  • Deployment strategies for GroundWork and Elastic Stack in the same data center
  • Features of the GroundWork integration with Elastic Stack (GroundWork Elastic Connector)
  • Real world use cases for monitoring logs and other messages

Docker Container Monitoring with GroundWork Cloud Hub

Why Containers?

Container technologies have captivated the computing world. Containers are the cornerstone for cloud computing and microservice architectures. Whether it be Docker™, Docker Compose™, or Kubernetes™, the IT world is embracing this technology with great enthusiasm.

How can you monitor containers? They are different from traditional hosts and servers. For one thing, they are not physical machines; nor are they virtual machines. Containers can be spun up to handle periodic load, and then torn down when no longer needed. With Kubernetes, containers can also be replicated and load balanced in pods across clusters.

Capacity Planning in a Multi-Cloud Environment

How to monitor resource consumption and availability to optimize capacity

Capacity planning in a multi-cloud environment is a complex challenge affecting most (if not all) organizations. Cloud based infrastructure has added to the complexity, both in cost and optimization. Organizations must optimize the performance of their hosted applications, but also plan for future growth while justifying cost. This paper focuses on the variables to consider for an effective capacity plan, and explains how monitoring removes the guesswork by providing quantitative data organizations can use to make better decisions about their infrastructure.
