Deploying to AWS Part IV: Performance monitoring with Scout

By Bradley Price Bullet_white Comments Comments

Looking for a fresh, 2018 approach to deploying a Rails app to AWS? We've partnered with DailyDrip on a series of videos to guide you through the process. We'll be covering how to Dockerize a Rails app, AWS Fargate, logging, monitoring, and CDN support.

Today, we're configuring application performance monitoring for our Rails app using Scout. In the last video, we configured AWS to ship our logs to LogDNA, but logging is just one of the three pillars of observability. With Scout's transaction traces we can easily find performance bottlenecks within our app and database layers.

Let's dive in.

Are You Monitoring Your Machine Learning Systems?

By Robert Dempsey Bullet_white Comments Comments

We're partnering with FusionCell to survey folks about how they monitor machine learning learning applications. FusionCell's Robert Dempsey joins us today to share some of the personal pain he's faced monitoring machine learning apps. Robert has been helping companies and engineers learn about, build and leverage machine learning systems.

When StackOverflow surveyed 64,227 software developers from 213 countries, Python came out as the programming language most wanted by employers.

Why?

Machine learning, or "ML" for short.

Deploying to AWS Part III: Log aggregation

By Bradley Price Bullet_white Comments Comments

Looking for a fresh, 2018 approach to deploying a Rails app to AWS? We've partnered with DailyDrip on a series of videos to guide you through the process. We'll be covering how to Dockerize a Rails app, AWS Fargate, logging, monitoring, and CDN support.

In our last video, we deployed our Rails app to AWS ECS with Fargate. In this video, we'll walk through logging. We'll switch to a more useful log output format and learn how to ship Cloudwatch logs to an external log aggregation service (LogDNA in our case).

Deploying to AWS Part II: Running a Rails app on Fargate

By Bradley Price Bullet_white Comments Comments

What's the 2018 approach to deploying a Rails app to AWS? We've partnered with DailyDrip on a series of videos to guide you through the process. We'll be covering how to Dockerize a Rails app, AWS Fargate, logging, monitoring, and CDN support.

Today's video is the next in the series of setting up our produciton app for production use in AWS ECS. In our last video, we Dockerized the app to prepare it to run on ECS / Fargate; in this video, we will work on doing just that.
