Using OpenTSDB at scale at Box
Benoit (Tsuna) Sigoure, Arista Networks & Jonathan Creasy, Box.net
Come hear about the ways OpenTSDB has changed Box's monitoring philosophy and allowed them to instrument and monitor more than ever, more easily than ever.
We'll talk about what sort of data to collect and how to use it, how OpenTSDB influenced Box's data collection approach, how OpenTSDB is used as an ad-hoc tool when troubleshooting, how it's used to put together dashboards for ops, engineering, and business metrics used by various groups at Box.
