Monitoring Docker Containers in a DevOps Context

DevOps teams are challenged with monitoring, tracking and troubleshooting issues in a context where continuous integration servers and DevOps tools emit their own logging data. Machine data can come from numerous sources, and CD tools may not agree on a common method. Once log data has been acquired, assembling meaningful real-time metrics such as the condition of your host environment, the number of running containers, CPU usage, memory consumption and network performance can be challenging.

Getting Agile with Database Development

Once an organization becomes convinced of the advantagesof agile development, there is no going back. Shorter time to value, lower risk and greater flexibility are among the most frequently cited benefits of the agile mentality.

Although most application developers now consider agile a mainstream approach, database developers — especially those working on relational databases — have been slower to embrace it because of the need to understand and respect the state of a database when deploying changes. Thus, database professionals have had to rely on manual processes that do not scale up to the faster development cycles at the heart of agile.
