The Art of Monitoring with James Turnbull

Monitoring translates machine data into actionable business metrics, and is a key component of a modern software company. James Turnbull’s new book “The Art of Monitoring” describes how organizations can build their monitoring infrastructure.



James joins the show today to outline the strategies that a company can use to proactively monitor their systems. We talk about pull- vs. push-based monitoring, events, logging, metrics, and James’s experience as CTO of Kickstarter.
