Before carrying out DevOps monitoring, technical support engineers need to choose the most appropriate cloud-based solution. In this course, you'll recognize the QoS parameters to monitor at each cloud platform layer and the prominent monitoring architectures used to monitor components across cloud layers. You'll then name some leading cloud monitoring platforms and critical tool selection criteria, before examining Azure, GCP, and AWS monitoring services. Next, you'll configure the AWS CloudWatch Logs Agent on EC2 Linux instances and use AWS Systems Manager Quick Setup to configure Systems Manager's capabilities on these instances. You'll configure Cloud Trail to manage event logs and use Azure Monitor to monitor and collect metrics and activity logs. Lastly, you'll monitor AWS EC2 instances, Compute Engine virtual machine instances, and web servers using Google Cloud Monitoring.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

  • discover the key concepts covered in this course
    describe the basic components, phases, and layers of application architecture in the cloud and list the QoS parameters that need to be monitored at each cloud platform layer
