This meetup is a joint event with Devops-in-Israel (http://www.meetup.com/devops-in-israel/photos/11648232/221447342/) group and is all about Monitoring! We have two great speakers who will talk about their views on when and how to monitor your infrastructure. Don't forget to invite your developer friends, as they will find it interesting as well.
1. Monitoring - When to start? by Assaf Flatto
Open source monitoring and cloud architecture make starting your monitoring that much easier and cheaper than most people think or are aware of.
In this talk, Assaf will present when it is best to start monitoring your products.
Learn the why and when you may want to start monitoring, common mistakes present in many implementations in the industry, why it needs to change, and how to change it.

2. Monitoring Big Data Systems Done "The Simple Way" by Demi Ben-Ari
Once you start working with distributed Big Data systems, you start discovering a whole bunch of problems you won’t find in monolithic systems. All of a sudden to monitor all of the components becomes a big data problem itself.
In the talk we’ll mention all of the aspects that you should take in consideration when monitoring a distributed system once you’re using tools like: Web Services, Apache Spark, Cassandra, MongoDB, Amazon Web Services. Not only the tools, what should you monitor about the actual data that flows in the system?
And we’ll cover the simplest solution with your day to day open source tools, the surprising thing, that it comes not from an Ops Guy.
