Librato Re-Imagines Alerting with New Platform

SAN FRANCISCO --(Business Wire)--

Librato, the cloud-based platform that puts the Zen into monitoring, has taken alerts to the next level with a brand new alerting platform, offering users advanced capabilities and setting the foundation for industry-leading new features. The new platform, available as a public beta, gives users expressive criteria to craft alerts that precisely model their production problems, without burdening them with a click-heavy configuration interface.

"Modern IT environments are incredibly dynamic and their operators require sophisticated alerting capabilities," said Librato CTO and co-founder Joseph Ruscio. "We've redesigned our alerts from the ground up to minimize false positives and alert fatigue as well as ensure that actual alerts are as actionable as possible by the on-call engineer receiving them. This new platform is the foundation for a steady stream of innovations that we'll release in coming months."

Librato's new alerting platform integrates seamlessly with their powerful monitoring platform, enabling users to both alert on and visualize emergent behavior from a single data source. Furthermore users can now easily alert on the application-level SLA's that drive thir business as opposed to secondary concerns like raw system resource usage. After an alert fires, users can easily collaborate to correlate metrics, pinpoint problems and share insights about their systems' health via intuitive, customizable charts.

The new alerting platform features the following:

  • Stand-alone alert definitions with improved trigger criteria
  • Trigger alerts on multiple conditions in a single alert
  • Configure multiple alerts to refer to a common metric
  • Improved trigger criteria -- alert on aggregated samples or when data stops arriving altogether
  • Re-arm timers and time-windowed alerts to differentiate between momentary spikes and sustained aberrations
  • A well-integrated, lightweight user interface
