January SF Metrics Meetup

  • Jan 30, 2013 · 6:30 PM

We are starting 2013 with a great event! January's SF Metrics Meetup features an OpenTSDB talk by Benoit Sigoure (Arista) & Jonathan Creasy ( and a Sensu talk by Nick Stielau (Pantheon) & Jeremy Carroll (Pinterest). Doors open at 6:30pm, talks start at 7pm. Our generous host is Heroku who is also providing pizza and beverages.


Using OpenTSDB at scale at Box

Benoit (Tsuna) Sigoure, Arista Networks & Jonathan Creasy,

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.


Metrics with Sensu

Nick Stielau, Pantheon & Jeremy Carroll, Pinterest

Sensu is a flexible metrics and monitoring 'bus' that makes it easy to start collecting metrics and getting them to all the right places.  It's cloud friendly and config-management friendly.  It supports metrics plugins in any language, allows direct push via TCP/UDP, and can use any of the dozens of existing community plugins. Come find out how it can help you keep an eye on your systems!

    Good overview on both Sensu and OpenTSDB (which I haven't played with yet, but definitely will now). Also some excellent pre- and post- discussion around different ways to setup some of the tools in this space.

    box preso was superb. sensu preso was informative, but I would rather hear some sort of success story like "this is what aggravates me about nagios and this is how sensu solves it" rather than a feature over view
