Instana Announces AI Powered Monitoring for HashiCorp Nomad

March 27, 2018

Instana is pleased to announce our official, first class support for HashiCorp Nomad. The important question is, what do I mean when I say, “first-class support”?

For Instana users, first-class support means the following:

  • Automatic discovery and monitoring of Nomad components
  • Full integration into the Instana Dynamic Graph (Click here for an explanation of the dynamic graph) – This model is used for correlation and causation.
  • Automatic selection and collection of all relevant metrics
  • Fully AI enabled behavioral learning
    • Predictive analytics
    • Automatic root cause analysis
  • Traces generated for EVERY request
  • Fully curated expert knowledge to identify problems and suggest remediation possibilities

So what is the value to you?

  • Know with certainty when one component is impacting other components or the service as a whole
  • Monitor the metrics that most clearly indicate problems. No guesswork required.
  • Know what is normal for any metric
  • Get warned BEFORE an issue occurs to take corrective action
  • Immediate troubleshooting by a single person
  • Troubleshoot any individual request. Never miss sporadic issues.
  • Expert in a box. Supplement the knowledge of your internal experts with expert knowledge from the Instana team.
