SignalFx Monitoring and Alerting for VMware Tanzu (Beta)

WARNING: The SignalFx Monitoring and Alerting tile is currently in beta and is intended for evaluation and test purposes only. Do not use this product in a VMware Tanzu production environment.

Note: Version 5.4.2-1 of the SignalFx Monitoring and Alerting is a reimplementation of the old 0.x line of tile releases. It now includes a SignalFx Smart Agent BOSH release and buildpack, and a reimplementation of the firehose nozzle that uses the RLP Gateway instead of the old v1 Loggregator API. If you previously installed any version of this tile prior to v5.4.2-1, uninstall it and install the latest version.

This documentation describes the SignalFx Monitoring and Alerting integration for VMware Tanzu. Use this integration to monitor the health and performance of your VMware Tanzu deployment using SignalFx. This integration retrieves metrics about your VMware Tanzu deployment from the Loggregator Firehose and sends them to SignalFx. It also provides a buildpack for the SignalFx Smart Agent to run the agent as a sidecar to PWS applications.

Overview

SignalFx’s integration with VMware Tanzu includes:

  • At-a-glance visualization of key metrics
  • Built-in dashboards
  • PWS Buildpack for direct application monitoring and span host metadata addition
  • BOSH Release of the Smart Agent for use in deployments
