To integrate PagerDuty and circleci with your monitoring system, please reach out to MetricFire. Book a demo with the MetricFire team to discuss integrating PagerDuty and circleci and how that can support your monitoring system.
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.
CircleCI is a continuous integration and delivery platform (CI/CD) that you can install in a private cloud or data centers.
After you authorize a software repository, such as GitHub or Bitbucket, as a project on circleci.com, every code change you make triggers automated tests in a clean container or VM. After the tests are complete, CircleCI notifies you via email of successes and failures.
You can configure CircleCI to deploy code to various environments, including AWS CodeDeploy, AWS EC2 Container Service (ECS), AWS S3, Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE), Microsoft Azure, and Heroku. You can deploy other cloud services using SSH or by installing the service's API client with your job configuration.
System administrators can gather metrics for monitoring their CircleCI installation for various environment variables, including installed Nomad clients and Docker metrics. Metrics collected by CircleCI include basic information, such as CPU or memory usage, and more advanced metrics, such as the number of executed builds or the number of internal errors. By recording and analyzing metrics, you can quickly detect incidents and abnormal behavior, retroactively understand infrastructure-wide issues, and scale computing resources dynamically.
With MetricFire, you can turbocharge your CircleCI monitoring to a new level. One useful method of monitoring the changes in your codebase is by adding annotations whenever your tests run. For example, by adding CircleCI annotations to your MetricFire graphs using a webhook, you can keep track of which passed tests have affected your system performance (negatively or positively). This method can help you prioritize what to fix first, as a highly negative impact should have top priority.
MetricFire is a full-scale platform that provides infrastructure, system, and application monitoring using a suite of open-source monitoring tools. We enable you to use Hosted Graphite and aesthetic custom dashboards to visualize your metrics so you can understand what is happening.
MetricFire offers users a complete ecosystem of end-to-end infrastructure monitoring, comprised of popular open-source monitoring software services: Graphite and popular dashboards. Plugins for many 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, but we also do application monitoring and business intelligence.
Through this hosted environment, MetricFire boosts the unique features of open-source projects to give you more functionality than the original products. Below are some of the MetricFire features at a glance:
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.
