About this Episode

Hello, welcome to The New Stack Context, a podcast where we review the week’s hottest news in cloud native technologies/at-scale application development and look ahead to topics we expect will gain more attention in coming weeks.

This week, we recorded the podcast live at the Sensu Summit, which took place live in Portland. Joining us this week are Google Developer Advocate Kelsey Hightower and Sensu CEO Caleb Hailey, to discuss the challenges of microservices monitoring. Many traditional monitoring tools, such as Nagios, or even Amazon Web Services' CloudWatch, fail to capture the full picture of what is going on within a system, the panel agreed.

This week, Hailey wrote a post for TNS how Sensu can automate the process of collecting sensor data from multiple tools, and multiple formats. "Hybrid cloud monitoring becomes a lot easier to reason about when everything is a 'workflow.' It’s not only easier, but the possibilities for what you can monitor (and how) are virtually endless," he wrote.
