GitHub is a service for hosting code and doing version control for code. The foundations of GitHub is "Git" - which is an open source version control system.
Git allows multiple coders to contribute to one project, while remembering which is the most up-to-date version. Git also remembers who contributed and what they contributed to the project. All modifications and revisions are stored in a central repository, and contributions are made through a pull request.
Pull requests can be made by anybody, but they must be approved by the repository admin. In some projects, pull requests can be contributed without approval. However, most projects have some quality assurance processes.
When doing application performance monitoring for a project built in GitHub, you’ll want to export data about your GitHub setup into your regular monitoring dashboards. You want to monitor when changes happen, and the effect they have on your system.
For example, if you make a change to your code, and suddenly the latency of requests to your server increases - you’ll want to know exactly which pull request caused that change. If you didn’t know that there were any changes in your code, then you wouldn’t be able to correlate the change in your code with the changes in how your system is behaving. This will slow down your debugging process.
With MetricFire, you can get all of your monitoring dashboards automatically annotated with the changes you’ve made to your code in GitHub. If there are any changes in behavior, a small note will be present in the graph to tell you what’s happening in your environment.
This enables you to automatically monitor the correlation between GitHub changes and how your system is functioning.
Amazon ElastiCache is an in-memory data store and cache that supports resource-heavy applications that require sub-millisecond response times. It delivers secure and fast performance by utilizing an end-to-end optimized stack that runs on customer dedicated nodes. Plus, Amazon ElastiCache is fully managed, including tasks such as setup, configuration, hardware provisioning, software patching, failure recovery and backups. ElastiCache supports two open-source in-memory caching engines which are named Memcached and Redis.
With Amazon ElastiCache, you can quickly set up and run many popular open-source compatible in-memory data stores in the cloud. Its fully scalable architecture lets you boost your existing databases' performance or build data-intensive apps by retrieving data from low latency and high throughput in-memory data stores. For this reason, Amazon ElastiCache is often used to improve the performance of session stores, gaming apps, geospatial services, caching, queuing and Real-Time Analytics.
One of the key features of Amazon ElastiCache is its scalability, allowing you to scale-up, scale-in, and scale-out to meet your application demands. It supports both write and memory scaling with sharding.
ElastiCache continuously monitors your data storage to keep your workloads up and running, which is where MetricFire comes to the fore.
With Metricfire, you can turbocharge your Amazon ElastiCache monitoring services. By integrating Amazon CloudWatch with the Metricfire platform, you can display your metrics on aesthetically pleasing dashboards. 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 data storage cache is doing something it shouldn't.

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.
