What is Self-Service Monitoring?

Self-Service Monitoring

We believe that monitoring should be self-service at every stage from collection to consumption of the data. Nearly every monitoring tool out there that claims “self-service” really is only about consumption, building dashboards and alerts. However collection is still an operations task, or requires operations/DevOps teams to build a lot of tooling around the solution to empower their developers and other users to setup monitoring by themselves.

Outlyer, out of the box, provides a simple and scalable platform that you can give to your teams, and with our delegated remote configuration technology, allows any user you delegate permissions to, the ability to setup their own monitoring in a few clicks, or a few commands with our CLI tool.

A team wants to monitor MySQL? No problem, they can do it themselves in a couple of clicks and start seeing metrics in seconds! They need a custom check to make sure the backup service their service relies on is working properly? No problem, they can write and deploy it themselves in minutes. Operations and DevOps teams become consultants to their teams helping them get better monitoring, instead of being buried in busy work setting it up for them all the time as their requirements change.

We believe this is the right model for where the world is heading with DevOps and Microservices, and because monitoring is a journey, not a destination, we’ve made it as low friction as possible to ensure adoption as your services evolve.

Outlyer customers don’t setup monitoring, they provide it to their teams. Outlyer users write hundreds of custom checks, because it’s so easy, and don’t get stuck with what’s provided out of the box like on other solutions.

Outlyer customers scale up and stay agile as their service grows, with every team having the visibility they need to build and manage their services in production. Outlyer users collaborate around data in real time to ultimately deliver better, faster and highly available software to their end users.
