DataDog - Monitoring OpenStack at Lithium and Datadog

OpenStack is a central component in Lithium\u2019s infrastructure, forming the backbone of their service platform in development, testing, and production. With such a far-reaching deployment, failure is not an option and monitoring is key so that issues are caught and addressed before they become user impacting. OpenStack is comprised of many distributed services, which in turn rely on diverse set of underlying technologies. Which metrics are key to monitor and how do they translate into impact on real world user experience? In this session we will provide overview of strategies used by the Lithium team to successfully manage and monitor their OpenStack environments, key metrics gathered, as well run through how various real world problems or incidents manifested in monitoring data.
