Craig chose the path of Support on his journey into technical writing. Using documentation to help quickly resolve issues for people who needed help just made sense, and he’d regularly send in documentation improvements… so much so they decided to just make him a technical writer. With experience being in different team sizes as both a writer and a manager, he has experienced much of what it’s like to be in the tech industry. As a manager, he believes in letting people demonstrate that they’re professionals, helping them to be the best they can be in their role. He lives with his wife and three cats, and does what the cats tell him to do.

What can you learn?

The Chronosphere documentation site has a lot of information and guidance about how to get started with and use the app, regardless of your experience level or your needs. 

Here’s a few of the more popular resources that you can find in the site that can hopefully help you as you learn about Chronosphere and be able to:

  • Master monitors and alerts:
    One of the reasons to ingest and store time series data is to know when data meets or doesn’t meet certain criteria. Use Chronosphere to generate alerts and notifications from data, whether it’s about your system or about your usage of Chronosphere itself.
  • Manage and automate resources:
    Use Chronoctl, the Chronosphere command-line tool, to manage your organization’s Chronosphere resources. For example, you can use it to inspect and update your team’s monitor definitions.
  • Accelerate observability:
    Use dashboards to analyze your metrics by creating visualizations of your observability data that you can customize, filter, and focus. You can use this to identify and act on trends, correlate changes in data to incidents, and monitor real-time statuses.
  • Understand what changed:
    When on-call engineers respond to an issue, they need to understand what changed, where the change occurred, and when the change happened. These insights are critical to investigating and remediating issues when they arise.
