Calendar Events


Calendar EventsCalendar events can always be planned for, because there is a known date associated with them.


Examples

  • SSL certificate expiring in ACM
  • Route53 domain is set to expire
  • EC2’s scheduled events

Outlier Events


Outlier EventsOutlier events are generated from metrics that don’t match your normal usage by hour, day, and week.


Examples

  • Cloudfront data transferred
  • System, Steal, and IOWait CPU Usage
  • Average queue length in EBS

Hard Limit Events


Hard Limit EventsHard limits can be high (100% full) or low (0 memory), but can always be projected and anticipated.


Examples

  • Disk space full
  • Number of RDS connections
  • EC2 CPU Credits

Static Threshold Events


Static Threshold EventsStatic thresholds measure a known bad state in your infrastructure, regardless of use case.


Examples

  • High normalized load
  • RDS low memory
  • ELB percent of 5xx errors

System Status Events


System Status EventsSystem status events track known bad states, similar to static thresholds, but don’t have an associated metric.


Examples

  • Time drift on servers (NTP)
  • ELB no healthy hosts
  • EBS volume status

Config Events


Config EventsConfig events happen when configuration doesn’t match the recommended values.

 

 


Examples

  • SQS max receives
  • Using Route53 CNAMES instead of ALIAS
  • Empty ELB health checks

Blue Matador integrates with AWS RDS

RDS
Our focus is on AWS infrastructure and notifying your team when intervention is needed.

Blue Matador integrates with AWS ELB

ELB
Get notifications about unhealthy hosts without looking at metrics

Blue Matador integrates with AWS Cloudfront

Cloudfront
Automatic monitoring on HTTP request traffic and cache statistics

Blue Matador integrates with AWS Slack

Slack
Blue Matador connects seamlessly to your team’s workflow tools

Autonomous Configuration


Onboarding with Blue Matador is easy: 1) connect your AWS accounts using read-only IAM credentials, 2) optionally install our agent on your servers, and 3) integrate your team’s notification providers like Pagerduty or Slack.

That’s it. It takes about 15 minutes.

With reactive monitoring tools, you also have to specify which metrics to monitor, get your own baselines, create alerts, and get endlessly granular to avoid false positives. With Blue Matador’s proactive monitoring, we do that work for you, and the result is far better.

Three notification urgencies

Alerts, Warnings, Anomalies


Some notifications require immediate attention, but most don’t. This is the source of alert fatigue in most organizations. An SSL certificate expiring in 30 days shouldn’t have the same urgency as a primary database server losing connectivity.

To handle this, Blue Matador has three notification urgencies.

  • Alerts are already affecting your end users and need manual intervention immediately.
  • Warnings will need manual intervention, too, but aren’t affecting end users yet.
  • Anomalies are events that shouldn’t happen, but do anyway. They are great for tracking down root causes.

System-Wide Timeline View


Our proactive monitoring tool reduces your millions of metrics and billions of data points to a simple set of outliers. We don’t show metrics from your app, they give false security in the form of a needle-in-the-haystack problem for humans.

The timeline view reduces the search space for root-cause analysis.

Our timeline shows only a manageable list of alerts, warnings, and anomalies, which can be scrolled through in minutes. When your system is healthy, the timeline reports nothing. Listing issues in this way is the best possible way to look for leads on your root cause analyses.

See all your events in a single time-driven dashboard
Use our pre-configured dashboards to build awareness

Pre-Configured Dashboard


Managing your monitoring tools can be fun, but ultimately decreases your efficiency as an engineer. So, our dashboard, as with our alerts, come pre-configured and ready to go.

Our dashboard builds awareness of production.

From our account-wide SSI™ score, to the rotating set of current issues, and the status of current integrations, our dashboard was built to increase awareness of production in dev teams and operations teams.
