A typical DevOps Engineer could be responsible for the maintenance of many services in a DevOps pipeleine such as a build server, binary storage solution, a a code repository service, wiki and a ticket tracking service.
High agility and a mature DevOps capability require these services to be running 100% of the time. An outage of any service will impact the route to live of any change. People will be walking up to your desk, wondering what is going on!
Using Hashicorp's Consul, we can intelligently monitor the status of these services and react in real time to unpredicted behaviour. You can therefore identifiy the issue before the rest of your end users do.
However, there will be occassions when outages require time to fix. How do you keep your end users informed without having to update them on a continual basis? Display this information from Consul in an easy to view dashboard on TVs around your office using Smashing.
It looks smart, tidy, and provides everyone the information they need so you can be left to bring the services back on line in the quickest time possible.
In this playground we will learn how easy it is to implement monitoring of your services using Hashicorp Consul.
