October 25, 2022 | Detroit, MI | In-Person

Learn how to level up your cloud native observability with Chronosphere.

Chronosphere is excited to be a Diamond sponsor at Prometheus Day, a co-located event with KubeCon + CloudNativeCon in Detroit, MI. Spend a day talking about all things Prometheus and the ecosystem it created.

Keynote: Reality check: Is it time to raise your metrics game?

Tuesday, October 25 | 9:15 AM

Martin Mao, Chronosphere

How do you know when you have a world class metrics function? While we obsess about the metrics of our infrastructure and apps, how often do we take the time to inspect our own function? When was the last time you benchmarked your spend, people impact, and time it takes to remediate issues? In this session, Martin Mao, Chronosphere co-founder and CEO and former observability engineering leader at Uber, will cover the KPIs you need to consider  when benchmarking your own metrics function – and crucially, how to demonstrate the business value that you and your team provide to the business.

Session: Centralized vs. Decentralized Prometheus Scraping Architecture with DoorDash

Tuesday, October 25 | 2:20 PM – 2:50 PM

Ales Koprivnikar, Chronosphere
Rabun Kosar,
DoorDash

There are two primary approaches to scrape and collect metrics using Prometheus – using a centralized set of dedicated scrapers or decentralized scrapers that run as an agent. With centralized scraping, Prometheus is deployed as a central scraper to pull metrics from all discoverable endpoints and sometimes can be split across multiple centralized instances using a few different approaches. However, with a decentralized approach, Prometheus runs as an agent and in Kubernetes is deployed as a DaemonSet on each node in a cluster and only collects metrics from the node it runs on. Each model has pros and cons – especially when operating at large scale – which can make it difficult when deciding which model to use. In this session, Rabun and Ales will provide an overview of Prometheus metrics collection at DoorDash, where having highly reliable resources, easy endpoint discovery, and real-time insights is critical. They will share insights and best practices into DoorDash’s decision to implement a decentralized model by offering pros and cons of each approach. Leave with a better understanding of the “right” model for your use case(s).
