If you missed this week's broadcast of "Five Things to Monitor After Black Friday and Cyber Monday," a recording is now available for on-demand access. Why's it important to carry your monitoring principles beyond Black Friday weekend? Even though the holiday shopping spree has slowed down, organizations can continue to monitor their databases wisely. Don't be fooled: database monitoring is vital year-round, and retail organizations should be prepared to deal with critical activity--even during periods unrelated to the typical holiday surges.
Earlier in November, VividCortex's CEO, Baron Schwartz, led an in-depth webinar ("What to Monitor For Black Friday and Cyber Monday") about the ways organizations should prepare to monitor their databases in the weeks and days leading into Black Friday and Cyber Monday (or leading into any anticipated period when activity might surge, seasonal or otherwise). That webinar covered themes such as "What could go wrong?", capacity planning, detecting latent issues early, and understanding technology-specific limits.
Now that Thanksgiving weekend has passed, Baron's hosted a follow-up webinar, explaining how to make some of those Black Friday monitoring best practices applicable year-round. In "Five Things to Monitor After Black Friday and Cyber Monday," he covers how you can apply the lessons from Black Friday / Cyber Monday, like how to proactively watch latency changes, assess capacity ceilings, and plan for 2017.
