The site is down. Alarms are going off. Before you can fix anything, you first have to understand what’s going on. And gaining context can be hard as you look across multiple systems and metrics. We’re pleased to announce Rich Incidents, a new feature for PagerDuty that helps incident responders gain additional context. Now, responders can go straight from an alert to a conference bridge, chat room, or runbook, giving them instantaneous access to each other and to any documentation they might need. Additionally, embedded graphs give more context into an incident, helping you respond faster and maintain a dependable product for your customers.

When it comes to monitoring the health of your IT system, the team at Boundary lives by the philosophy that every second counts. Rather than letting data slip through the cracks at five- or even one-minute intervals, Boundary provides real-time monitoring of servers, platforms and apps for IT and DevOps teams with one-second resolution. We’re excited to announce an integration with PagerDuty to help teams resolve infrastructure incidents even faster.

We love PagerDuty and are big users ourselves. We love the ease of integration with our other platforms. We love the scheduling and overrides. We love the per-service escalation groups. We love the sound of our default alert setting, the sad trombone (Though, the more we think about it, “love” isn’t the right word on that last one. That infernal trombone wakes up our team to let us know there is trouble in the Cloud. We dread that trombone).

Application Performance Monitoring (APM) systems like AppDynamics can provide incredibly rich information about what’s happening with your IT infrastructure, and can identify performance issues before they create big problems. However, this information is only as good as your ability to respond to it. PagerDuty can extend the capabilities of AppDynamics Alert & Respond policies to ensure incidents are noticed, responded to, and fixed quickly.

Today we’re announcing the integration of PagerDuty with Webmon, a website monitoring and escalation service that lets you be the first to know when an online service goes down.

When your service goes down, there’s no time to waste. With sweaty palms and an elevated heart rate, you need to figure out what’s wrong, all while communicating your status to your users. Coordinating with your team is complex enough – there’s no room for unnecessary actions. This is where Flowdock’s new and greatly improved PagerDuty integration comes into play.

We, as IT professionals, have ever-expanding access to more accurate Ops telemetry. With this data, we have an incredible amount of visibility into what’s going on. However, more information isn’t always a good thing when it comes to alerting. You can definitely have too many alerts, and alert fatigue is a growing problem among Operations teams. More detailed telemetry isn’t bad; it’s just that much of this information is generally better suited for forensics rather than alerting. Event Enrichment and PagerDuty team up to help you battle alert fatigue.
