To integrate Amazon Kinesis and PagerDuty with your monitoring system, reach out to MetricFire. Book a demo with the MetricFire team to discuss integrating Amazon Kinesis and PagerDuty and how that can support your monitoring system.
Amazon Kinesis is the company’s real-time streaming data analysis platform. It provides powerful insights on video, data, audio, and other streams.
This data platform is a foundational component of data processing for machine learning, artificial intelligence, IoT telemetry, and more. With Amazon Kinesis, you have access to fully managed infrastructure to process all your streaming needs with low latency and little downtime.
It also easily connects to third-party databases and tools, like MetricFire, SQL, and Amazon Web Services (AWS) data stores.
No matter how much data you’re inputting, Amazon Kinesis easily queries and analyzes it to create flawless video, deep reporting, and even automation through Amazon S3 buckets, Redshift, Splunk, and other AWS services.
All data streams are securely encrypted and create a lot of use-cases. These proactive cognitive solutions create innovative new ways to interact with your data stores.
But why do you need it?
Amazon Kinesis gives businesses real-time access to all the necessary data for their businesses. It's an intuitive interface with visual access to all required information.
Leveraging real-time application monitoring is useful for fraud detection, tracking leaderboards, and quickly identifying issues.
Netflix uses Amazon Kinesis to keep its video streams healthy while also monitoring social media. The use cases are endless.
MetricFire easily connects to many different data sources, including Amazon Kinesis. MetricFire's advanced filtering lets you choose only the data views you want to see and discard the rest. You can also set up simple rules to discard data you no longer keep, plus receive alerts via email or Slack when your block store is doing something it shouldn't. First, you’ll need to download the Amazon AWS CloudWatch add-on from Hosted Graphite and connect your accounts.
From there, we have a comprehensive guide on how to link your accounts and set them up to automatically exchange data between both platforms.
PagerDuty is an incident management platform used to help teams quickly detect and fix infrastructure problems. It manages automatic notifications when a problem occurs, escalates the issue where necessary, and schedules on-call resources.
With its SaaS platform, PagerDuty provides businesses, developers, and administrators a range of powerful tools to help them quickly manage client-impacting issues. By arming your business with the insight to proactively manage events that may affect customers across your IT infrastructure, PagerDuty helps you to maintain customer experience and satisfaction. It also allows you to sustain your brand reputation and revenue streams.
PagerDuty comes with hundreds of native integration points to ensure that the right data gets in the hands of the right people in real-time. By taking advantage of machine-learning, PagerDuty automatically handles resource scheduling and issue escalations. You can customize PagerDuty notifications to use a combination of phone calls, SMS, push notifications, and emails depending on the issue severity, time of day, or defined support hours.
These features are why PagerDuty can be such a useful companion to your MetricFire applications such as Hosted Graphite. For example, you might use Hosted Graphite to receive alerts about system performance, code bugs, or other issues. If you use PagerDuty as well, you would find it of immense use when you wanted automatic delegating to the people in your organization. One way would be to use PagerDuty to create alerts that it automatically assigns to specific people on your team.
You can create a PagerDuty service on MetricFire's Hosted Graphite that triggers once an alert criterion reaches a specified threshold. Once triggered, the service delegates tasks to specific individuals, leaving you free to focus on other important job functions.

MetricFire is a full-scale platform that offers infrastructure, system, and application monitoring using a suite of open-source monitoring tools. The platform allows you to use either Prometheus- or Graphite-as-a-Service and have your metrics displayed on aesthetically-pleasing Grafana dashboards.
MetricFire offers its users a complete ecosystem of end-to-end infrastructure monitoring, which is made up of three of the most popular open-source monitoring software services: Prometheus, Graphite, and Grafana. As well, plugins for a number of other open-source projects are preconfigured, such as StatsD, collectd, and Kubernetes. You get all these within a hosted environment as a single product. Not only does MetricFire fit well into the infrastructure monitoring use-case, such as network monitoring and server monitoring, we also do application monitoring and business intelligence.
Through this hosted environment, MetricFire works to boost the unique features of the open source projects to give you more functionality than the original products. Below are some of the MetricFire features at a glance:
Cloud and on Premise Monitoring
Whether to use Prometheus or Graphite is a great question. We’ve looked deeper into this decision in our blog article, Prometheus or Graphite. While Prometheus is a newer software that has a multidimensional data structure, Graphite is robust and sufficient. The key thing to remember is that Hosted Graphite by MetricFire is more than just Graphite. Our Hosted Graphite product actually adds data dimensionality and better data storage.
