Collecting, aggregating and visualizing data are key pieces of a modern devops operation. Luckily, tools like Librato are around to make this easy to do. Librato is a cloud-based metrics monitoring system that makes it simple to see the status of your critical systems at a glance. All that’s required is for you to feed Librato’s API with your data stream and it handles the rest.
The Librato team has taken their already powerful tool to the next level by directly integrating with PagerDuty. This allows your team to be promptly notified of critical situations. The integration is highly customizable so that only the metrics that matter are monitored. Additionally, you can tie your Librato account to multiple PagerDuty services so that the right members of your team get notified every time.
If you don’t already have a PagerDuty or Librato account, sign up for your free trials today. Once you’re registered at both sites and have added your systems to Librato, follow our simple integration guide to get configured.
