Observability stack at ALight Technology And Services Limited

Observability stack at ALight Technology And Services Limited

In the past I have mentioned about implementing observability stack at ALight Technology And Services Limited. I have not even started collecting application specific metrics but the observability stack (log monitoring along with metrics) has been very helpful in identifying some performance bottlenecks in one particular microservice. The microservice has been disabled on purpose and the reason why Trending page on PodDB does not get updated. In the past, while discussing and showing the architecture of PodDB, I have mentioned that the consumption and ingestion micro-services are different for scalability and performance reasons, so the ingestor has been disabled. I am not in any rush to fix any of this yet, because I am slightly busy with other things.

I have stopped using the ELK stack, due to reasons and started using GrayLog, Graphite and Grafana.

However, I wanted to encourage every software company to consider and implement observability stacks. I am more concerned about have the right tools, observability, monitoring and alerting in place before any commercial activities rather than being an after-thought. If you need any help in planning or designing your systems please do let me know, I would be willing to help. The monitoring stack has also helped me in right-sizing the hardware for the other servers. Let me put it this way, I am able to reduce my costs of previous hardware by 25 - 30% based on observations from the observability stack. Of course, implementing the observability stack on-premises did increase the expenses a bit, but definitely worth in the long term.

Please do let me know, if you need any help with cost reductions in Cloud, capacity planning, design and architecture of high-performance, resilient systems, custom development on .Net stack. I do offer free 1 hour consultation, please do contact me.
