I presented last Friday at Devops Days NYC. After my rather cerebral “envision the future” talk at Velocity earlier in the week, I tried to come back to earth a little and talk about how to improve the monitoring tools we use right now — making the best of what we have. I think the title conveys the gist of it: monitor some of the things. As someone pointed out on Twitter afterwards, though, I was not being careful enough with my language. I was mostly focusing on alerts, not monitoring-in-general.
Thanks to the organizers and sponsors for arranging and supporting Devops Days! Slides are embedded below.
