Monitoring Survey

James Turnbull (@kartar) has this year’s monitoring survey up, so am reposting his call for participants…

TL;DR – Please take the 2015 Monitoring Survey at
https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/monitoringsurvey2015.

Last year I ran a monitoring survey, whose data I also reviewed as a
series of posts on [my] blog
(http://kartar.net/2014/11/monitoring-survey—background/). I was
interested in running the survey because I think we’re seeing the
beginnings of a significant change in the maturity of the monitoring
landscape and I’d like to track that change.

I’ve decided to make the survey a yearly event and am coinciding the
launch of this year’s survey with Monitorama in Portland.

The survey takes about 5 minutes to fill out and the results will again
be presented on this blog, in some conference talks and made available
as Creative Commons licensed data. The survey is totally anonymous and
the data won’t be used for any commercial purposes.

You can find the survey here –

In related news, if you can’t be at Monitorama try to watch along at http://monitorama.com/#watch!

Monitoring and the State of DevOps

If you haven’t read the new  2014 State of DevOps Report from Puppet Labs and other luminaries, check it out now!

I also pulled out some of their findings on monitoring to inspire a post for the Copperegg blog, Monitoring and the State of DevOps, which I thought I’d mention here too.
