Integrate Amazon Redshift and PagerDuty

Integrating Amazon Redshift and PagerDuty with your monitoring system

To integrate Amazon Redshift and PagerDuty with your monitoring system, reach out to MetricFire. Book a demo with the MetricFire team to discuss integrating Amazon Redshift and PagerDuty and how that can support your monitoring system.

What is Amazon Redshift?

Amazon Redshift is a Data Warehouse product provided by AWS. Every interaction you have with your clients generates countless data points. With the right tools, you can harness the power of that data to optimize the customer experience.

Amazon Redshift makes setting up your data center simple. No need to invest resources in costly hardware that requires storage space. Your Amazon Redshift data center exists in the cloud - and every step is managed for you from start to finish. 

You can rely on Amazon Redshift for the setup, operation, and scaling of your data warehouse. That includes specialized tasks such as provisioning capacity, monitoring, backup, software patches, and upgrading. Whether you have a few hundred gigabytes of data or more than a petabyte, Amazon Redshift is a seamless, secure solution for your data center needs. 

 

Why Do Performance Monitoring with Amazon Redshift?

Plenty of cloud-based data services can meet basic needs, but Amazon Redshift offers something more. Users remain loyal, because Amazon Redshift can be trusted to keep data secure. Better still, it is fast and easy to use. 

Amazon Redshift clients enjoy a variety of exclusive features related to cluster access and security. Application developers trust the platform because encrypted data and connections are guaranteed.

Simply create a data warehouse by launching a set of nodes, which are referred to as an Amazon Redshift cluster. Provision your cluster, then upload your data set and perform necessary data analysis queries and monitoring. 

The size of the data set does not matter: Amazon Redshift is best known for its fast query performance. App developers who are familiar with SQL-based tools and business intelligence applications find it simple and efficient. 

You can track the performance and overall health of your databases using the Amazon CloudWatch metrics. These are particularly helpful in monitoring CPU utilization, latency, and throughput.

MetricFire integrates seamlessly with Amazon Redshift, so you can monitor performance accurately. Sign up for the MetricFire free trial to set up your Amazon Redshift, or book a demo to learn more about the features from the MetricFire team.

What is PagerDuty?

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.

What is MetricFire?

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

Hosted Prometheus

Hosted Graphite

Grafana Dashboards

        

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.

       

The benefits of MetricFire are:

    

No vendor lock-ins
MetricFire allows you to request for a full export at any time, because you will always own the data you input. You get all the benefits of an open-source tool with the stability and security of a SaaS tool.
