Monitoring SilverStripe with Elastic

A presentation at StripeCon Europe 2018 in in Enschede, Netherlands by Philipp Krenn

This talk gives an overview on how to monitor a SilverStripe application from all possible sides. We dive into:

  • System metrics: Keep track of system load and network traffic (for example TLS handshakes).
  • Application metrics: Gather metrics from nginx, php-fpm, and MySQL.
  • Application logs: Collect logs in a structured format or parse them to extract all the relevant information.
  • Uptime monitoring: Ping services and actively monitor their availability and response time.

And we will do all of that live since it is so easy and much more interactive that way.
