  2. 2. 1. Know your infrastructure stack
  3. 3. 1. Know your infrastructure stack • Make sure your infrastructure information is complete and current. • Tools, which contain non- current information, are not used. • Aim for an automated & repeatable process of information collection. aws ec2 describe-instances --instance-ids i-5203422c
  4. 4. 2. Know your monitoring tools
  5. 5. 2. Know your monitoring tools • In todays world, vendors often merge management tools with monitoring functions. • You‘ll want to benefit from these very specific tools, so you‘ll end up using them. (sometimes you have to) • Be clear in your organization, what you monitor how. • Check completeness of landscape
  6. 6. 3. Consolidate your monitoring output
  7. 7. 3. Consolidate your monitoring output • You‘ll want to have a consolidated view of your monitoring output. • Potential tools for that the ELK stack, Splunk or SAP ITOA. • Work on sensible thresholds & alerts • Consolidated view simplifies tasks such as root cause analysis & pattern finding. • Visualization helps!

Setup of proper support organization • Thousands of alerts … • Not everything has to go to the service desk („Self-healing“) • Service desk needs to know what to do with monitoring output • Enable fast impact detection • How do you inform your customers? • Look regularly at repeating causes for issues
