Observability has become a critical part of cloud native computing and metrics are one of the most sought-after data by site reliability engineering (SRE) teams. However, getting the right metrics that are relevant to businesses remains a challenge.

In this episode of TFiR Let’s See, Liran Haimovitch, Co-Founder and CTO at Rookout, talks about Live Metrics, the company’s newest product that is being launched at the Dynatrace event today. He shares the features that make it a powerful observability tool for companies and gives a demo of how it actually works.

Key highlights of this interview:

  • Most observability providers offer metrics out of the box. They make companies pay upfront and at the end of the day, companies might not be using 90% of the metrics, even though they’re paying for them.
  • The right metrics that impact the health of a service and determine the health of a business are usually obtained manually through a tedious process: you have to code them in, test, monitor over time, experiment, add, remove, etc.
  • Live Metrics utilizes the Rookout technology of being able to dynamically collect data and enables users to create new metrics on the fly, in real time.
  • Haimovitch says one of the powerful features of Live Metrics is the Open Message View Pane where users are able to see the metric and the code that created it — together. That way, companies can truly understand what the metric is about and its impact. It is about connecting code to business value.
  • As Rookout gradually moves deeper into the observability space, it wants to serve not just software engineers, but architects as well. It wants to deepen its ability to provide big-picture insights, not just individual code.
  • Haimovitch then demonstrates how the product works, showing how to look at source code in Live Metrics mode and collect data. Metrics can be added with the click of a button.
  • Live Metrics is currently available in early access.
