Cut Your Resolution Time with AppDynamics and PagerDuty

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.

PagerDuty Recap: AWS Summit – San Francisco

Last week, PagerDuty had the pleasure of attending AWS Summit on our home turf in San Francisco. It was nothing short of epic. The Amazon Web Services crowd is definitely our niche. AWS is a critical component of the PagerDuty platform, and our three founders actually came up with the idea for PagerDuty while working at Amazon! So, naturally, we feel totally in our element surrounded by other AWS fans at these types of events.

PagerDuty User Group

We hosted our first user group last week at PagerDuty HQ! Not only did we gather our awesome customers and enjoy the taco bar and cervezas, but we got to learn a lot from our them, share our roadmap – and our customers learned from each other, too. We really value user feedback as part of how and why we build our product. We wanted to share some key takeaways from our sessions during the event.

Who watches the watchmen?

How we drink our own champagne (and do monitoring at PagerDuty) We deliver over 4 Million alerts each month, and companies count on us to let them know when they have outages. So, who watches the watchmen? Arup Chakrabarti, PagerDuty’s engineering manager, spoke about how we monitor our own systems at DevOps Days Chicago earlier […]

rm –rf “breast cancer”

At PagerDuty, we pride ourselves in supporting the everyday hero, so naturally, we take it upon ourselves to give back to the community.

PagerDuty @ #FS14

Last week, we attended New Relic’s FutureStack14 conference and it was a great opportunity for us to connect with our friends over at New Relic and PagerDuty customers. Unlike most conferences held in hotels or conference centers, FutureStack14 was held at Fort Mason, a former army post, and offered attendees great views of the Golden […]

BabyDuty: Being On-call is Similar to Being a Parent

What did the parent say to the on-call engineer at 3am? “At least yours doesn’t smell.” Believe it or not, lack of sleep isn’t the only similarity between managing critical infrastructure and the wonderful adventure of new parenthood. One of our own, Dave Cliffe, recently delivered a talk at Velocity Santa Clara on this very […]
