To integrate Heroku and Slack with your monitoring system, reach out to MetricFire. Book a demo with the MetricFire team to discuss integrating Heroku and Slack and how that can support your monitoring system.
Heroku is Infrastructure as a Service that was built with developers in mind. It is a Platform as a Service used to host applications, and it was originally built for Ruby language. It has since expanded from just Ruby to Java, Node.js, Scala, Clojure, Python, PHP, and Go.
Not only does Heroku offer server, network and general computation - it offers everything a developer needs to get straight to building their app.
Heroku is able to scale instantly, both vertically and horizontally. Heroku provides code rollback, allowing you to rollback your code to a previous version instantly. Heroku integrates with GitHub so that any repo can be set to auto deploy in Heroku.
Heroku offers Postgres(SQL) as a Service, as well as Add-ons built by both Heroku and 3rd parties to make sure you have every tool you need. In the Heroku Add-ons store you can get everything from performance monitoring and data stores, to development tools, search, and more.
To monitor your Heroku apps, you can easily integrate your Heroku app with MetricFire. The MetricFire Heroku monitoring add-on surpasses the default Heroku monitoring tool by allowing users to customize graphs feely. In MetricFire, users can select very granular time frames and zoom into their data. The default Heroku monitoring tool is unable to display very granular information over a long period of time.
Also, MetricFire has automatically generated dashboards specifically designed for Heroku apps. Once you have set up the MetricFire integration with Heroku, you will be able to see your automatically generated dashboards tailored to your Heroku app.
In your automatically generated dashboard for Heroku you can see metrics for Load Average, Memory and Swap, as well as all of your HTTP metrics. With a bit of custom metrics, you can easily monitor your business metrics and app performance as well. Monitor your Heroku app with MetricFire today!
Slack is a popular channel-based messaging platform that improves business communication and collaboration. This cloud-based solution offers enterprise-grade security and scalability, along with many innovative features that make it easier to have quality work conversations.
The core functionality of Slack revolves around chat rooms where users send messages and files. You can organize these rooms by topics, teams, projects, office locations, and other categories to keep the discussions highly relevant to that work. Users can also directly message each other. In addition to text messages, voice, screen sharing, and video chats are also supported.
You have a lot of flexibility in working with Slack. Your channels can be open to everyone in the organization, available for users outside of your organization, or made private for a subset of employees. A robust search function simplifies the process of looking up information, so it’s readily available. There is also an option of free-to-use and paid plans.
Slack workspaces create a central repository for work-related information, whether that’s being shared in messages, file attachments, links, or other formats. Slack performance monitoring allows you to see how your organization is utilizing this platform, whether it’s having issues, and ways to optimize it for your specific use cases.
One of Slack’s strengths is its integration support with many software types, allowing you to perform your work without leaving the workspace. For example, when you connect MetricFire and Slack, you can send immediate notifications to a specific channel so the right staff members see it. Since the alerts show up in a centralized communications tool being used for other daily work activities, they get noticed and acted on faster.
