GroundWork BoxSpy is the most resource-efficient, comprehensive monitoring system available for container technologies. Benefits of monitoring Docker containers with GroundWork BoxSpy are Works 'out-of-the-box' with GroundWork, but also has a REST API that makes it compatible with other monitoring technologies. Lives in a container and is capable of monitoring other containers running on the same system. Designed for both DevOps and production environments. Adds full-featured enterprise monitoring to Docker environments with the ability to correlate Docker performance with the rest of the IT environment. Designed for dynamic environments - automatically monitors new Docker containers as spin them up. BoxSpy is based on Google's cAdvisor container monitoring technology and improves it by dramatically reducing the resource demand and performance impact; API clean-up and bug-fixing; Removing unnecessary overhead that isn't needed when talking to an external monitoring system; Normalizing metrics to make them more human readable and standardized; Adding threshold setting; and Adding process monitoring.

GroundWork, Inc. Announces the First Performance Monitoring Solution for the OpenStack Cloud Operating System

GroundWork, Inc. announced the first performance monitoring solution for the OpenStack cloud operating system. Monitoring for OpenStack is available through GroundWork Cloud Hub enabling availability and performance visibility for Nova compute, Neutron networking and Cinder storage components, as well as the underlying physical hardware and other typical data center assets. GroundWork Cloud Hub with OpenStack monitoring has the ability to monitor several components within the OpenStack framework enabling users to: Monitor performance and availability of Nova, Neutron, and Cinder OpenStack modules; Make sense of metrics across the entire system; Combine metrics for multi-level trouble shooting. Visualize specific data important for provisioning and capacity planning including: CPU Steal (Linux), ReadyState (VMWare); Storage from the VM down to the SAN; Network throughput across routers, switches and virtual networks.

GroundWork, Inc. Announces LogHub Beta Combining Unified Monitoring & Log Analysis

GroundWork, Inc. announced the first beta program for the new GroundWork LogHub, which integrates one or more log analysis solutions to GroundWork Monitor Enterprise. Combining unified monitoring with log analysis provides for faster trouble-shooting, improved root cause analysis, and more effective IT event correlation and forensic analysis. GroundWork LogHub Beta 1 interfaces with the open source Elasticsearch ELK Stack (Elasticsearch, Kibana and Logstash). It allows data search, display and filtering functions to be displayed natively within the GroundWork Monitor portal UI for seamless visualization alongside other monitoring data. Key Study findings: 37% of unified monitoring users are reviewing their IT logs via manual text search; 33% are already using log analysis softwarel; 96% find the ability to combine log field data with other monitoring event data into a single search tool and/or dashboard important; 42% of users claim they do not have enough time to start analyzing their IT log data; 18% say the cost is too high. By integrating GroundWork Monitor Enterprise with log analysis tools, GroundWork LogHub provides: Bi-directional data flow between GroundWork Monitor and log analysis tools; Correlated logfile-based data appears within the GroundWork Event Console for alerting, notification and actions; Non-logfile data, such as performance or availability metrics, can be pushed to log analysis tools to improve search results; Sending state changes, downtime schedules and other event data generated within GroundWork to the remote log analysis tool, improving the accuracy, precision and coverage of Log Analysis both for event correlation and forensic analysis; Using a distributed log analysis tool for the collection and correlation of log data improves scalability and capability for monitoring Big Data systems, providing much improved correlation logic between log data and other monitoring events.
