We’re NOT Announcing Docker Support

By Alec Pinkham

Towards the end of 2014, Docker expanded support for three major players in the cloud space: AWS, Microsoft Azure, and Google Compute. Series D funding of Docker reached almost $100 million. With growing adoption, Docker is an important trend for future application architectures. But this isn't new here at AppNeta. We've heard announcements for Docker support, and our customers have asked about it too, but TraceView has always had Docker support. With our focus on the application and distributed transaction tracing, our instrumentation is designed with distributed systems in mind.

Let's start with a crazy idea: Application Performance Monitoring should be app-centric. APM should be able to monitor effectively across any architecture, container or otherwise. Other APM tools use a more host or tier-centric user interface that requires fundamental changes when customers adopt a Docker architecture. TraceView is designed with distributed architectures in mind, regardless of the server architecture that supports them.

TraceView keeps track of your user's request as it passes through the layers of your application. We call this method distributed transaction tracing, and it lets us effortlessly transition into the age of platforms like Docker. This distributed approach allows us to identify the layers of the application that your user's request enters and leaves regardless of the number of hosts because each host has instrumentation to establish the entry and exit events for each layer. By instrumenting different Docker processes as we've traditionally done with hosts we can show you the full path and timings of your user's request.

The demand for many independently scalable parts has, in part, led to the success of Docker, but the requirements of keeping open connections from each Docker process can be restrictive. Monitoring Docker using other APM products requires open connections from each active process. This effectively multiplies the configuration overhead induced on the application side.

We haven't announced Docker support. Because we've supported it all along. In fact TraceView's Instrumentation team uses Docker containers as part of our QA process as well. See ourdocumentation on how to install TraceView on Docker and an example dockerfile.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
SYS-CON Events announced today that IoT Global Network has been named “Media Sponsor” of SYS-CON's @ThingsExpo, which will take place on June 6–8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY. The IoT Global Network is a platform where you can connect with industry experts and network across the IoT community to build the successful IoT business of the future.
Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
To Really Work for Enterprises, MultiCloud Adoption Requires Far Better and Inclusive Cloud Monitoring and Cost Management … But How? Overwhelmingly, even as enterprises have adopted cloud computing and are expanding to multi-cloud computing, IT leaders remain concerned about how to monitor, manage and control costs across hybrid and multi-cloud deployments. It’s clear that traditional IT monitoring and management approaches, designed after all for on-premises data centers, are falling short in ...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...

Disruption, Innovation, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, Leadership and Management hear these words all day every day... lofty goals but how do we make it real? Add to that, that simply put, people don't like change. But what if we could implement and utilize these enterprise tools in a fast and "Non-Disruptive" way, enabling us to glean insights about our business, identify and reduce exposure, risk and liability, and secure business continuity?
