Book Review ~ Practical Monitoring: Effective Strategies for the Real World by Mike Julian

My very first book review; I bet you’re all so excited. I know I am!

Instead of giving a numerical score (what does that even mean?!), I’m going to break each book down with my overall impressions, key takeaways, and suggesting audiences I think will benefit most. The format of these reviews may change over time, but for now, let’s dive in to Practical Monitoring: Effective Strategies for the Real World.

Overall Impressions

Practical Monitoring: Effective Strategies for the Real World is a tool agnostic overview of monitoring principles and key metrics to monitor in several areas – business KPIs (key performance indicators), frontend, application, server, network and security.

The layout of the information Mike presented was well-chosen. Starting with the anti-patterns of monitoring (think the single pane fallacy, obsession with tools, alerting on unhelpful things like OS metrics, being too conservative in what you’re collecting) was really smart. Once you have a handle on everything you shouldn’t be doing, Mike’s lessons on what you should be doing are easy to grok.

Any good monitoring book will include a chapter on alert fatigue and on-call best practices. There’s always room for improvement wherever you work, and that wasn’t overlooked here. The chapter on the math of metrics was also a nice touch. Data you’re collecting is pretty useless if you don’t know how to interpret it.

I would’ve liked more information on monitoring microservice architecture… that could’ve been a whole chapter given that’s the direction a lot of companies are starting to explore. I also felt that the final chapter on conducting a monitoring assessment was too brief. Some final nuggets of wisdom would’ve been great here.

Key Takeaways

Start from the top down with your monitoring; determine what your business KPIs are, then translate those into technical things you can actually monitor and alert on.

Define what “working” means for your application, and monitor that. Sure, collect OS-level metrics like disk space, memory and CPU load, but don’t just alert on arbitrary values. Alert on rates of increase/decrease or unusual patterns.

There is no shame in buying monitoring tools, and in fact, this is usually the best option. The cost ends up being far less than paying a team of engineers to build and/or maintain a homegrown monitoring solution. On top of that, these tools are built by monitoring experts. Can you say that about your engineers?

Recommended Audiences

Practical Monitoring is a great overview for engineers that are brand new to monitoring, or know that their current monitoring isn’t serving them, but they’re not sure where to start in improving it.

As this book isn’t super technical, and anything technical is explained in a clear way, I’d even venture to suggest this book for business owners. Monitoring is such an important, yet so overlooked area, and this book can go a long way in helping a company tie it’s bottom line to monitoring the health of its front-end, applications, and infrastructure.

If you’re experienced in the art of monitoring, this is probably not the book for you. And kudos to Mike Julian for mentioning this in the Preface section titled “Who Should Read This Book”.

Have you read Practical Monitoring? What did you think? Or are you curious to read it now?

Hi! I'm a systems engineer for a global marketing platform. Here I dish about (mostly technical) books I'm reading, my musings on the ever-important soft skills/glue work in this field, and my general adventures in engineering.

  1. Especially: “too many bloggers—even the pros–comment more from habit than from heart…and it shows”. I’ve been guilty of that myself, at times, especially when extra busy and tired.

  2. I’m working on my very first blogging site. Yes I’m a beginner but after reading this post, I had an insight what pro did to become successful. Thank’s for this wonderful info’s. It helped me a lot. Goodluck to me!

  3. Thanks for some useful tips… Lol bribery will always seem to work. I’ll take your recommendations and implement them one by one until I get it right.

  4. Hi, very nice website, cheers!

  5. Nice blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog jump out. Please let me know where you got your theme. Thank you

  6. Thank you for sharing superb informations. Your web site is so cool. I am impressed by the details that you’ve on this web site. It reveals how nicely you understand this subject. Bookmarked this website page, will come back for more articles. You, my pal, ROCK! I found just the information I already searched everywhere and simply could not come across. What an ideal website.

  7. I want to express appreciation to you just for bailing me out of this situation. Right after surfing around through the the web and meeting views which were not helpful, I figured my entire life was done. Living without the solutions to the difficulties you have fixed as a result of your short article is a critical case, as well as those that could have negatively damaged my career if I hadn’t encountered your website. Your own knowledge and kindness in controlling the whole thing was helpful. I’m not sure what I would have done if I had not come upon such a solution like this. I’m able to at this point relish my future. Thanks a lot so much for this expert and result oriented guide. I won’t think twice to recommend your web sites to any person who needs direction about this subject.

  10. I am not sure where you’re getting your info, but good topic.
    I needs to spend some time learning much more or understanding more.

    Thanks for great info I was looking for this info for my mission.

  11. Does your blog have a contact page? I’m having trouble locating it but, I’d like to send you
    an email. I’ve got some creative ideas for your blog you might
    be interested in hearing. Either way, great website and I look forward to seeing it expand over
    time.

  12. We are a group of volunteers and starting a new scheme in our
    community. Your web site offered us with valuable info to work on. You have done a formidable job and our entire community

  14. First off I want to say excellent blog! I had a quick question in which I’d
    like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to know
    how you center yourself and clear your mind before
    writing. I’ve had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there.
    I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first
    10 to 15 minutes are lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips?

    Kudos!

  15. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was wondering
    what all is required to get set up? I’m assuming having a
    blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100% positive. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Cheers

  16. My brother recommended I may like this blog. He used to be totally right.

    Excellent Blog!

  18. Hello there! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from
    an established blog. Is it very hard to set up your own blog?
    I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast.
    I’m thinking about creating my own but I’m not sure where to start.

    Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Appreciate it

  19. certainly like your website however you need to check the spelling on several of
    your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling problems and I find it very bothersome to tell the truth on the other hand I will surely
    come again again.

  20. When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added
    I get four emails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove people from that service?

    Thanks!

  21. Greetings! This is my first visit to your blog!

    now and finally got the bravery to go ahead and give you a shout out from
    Atascocita Tx! Just wanted to tell you keep up the excellent job!

    great. I do not know who you are but definitely you are going to a famous blogger if you aren’t already 😉
    Cheers!

    like to write some articles for your blog in exchange for a link
    back to mine. Please blast me an email if interested.
    Thank you!

  32. An outstanding share! I have just forwarded this onto a colleague who had
    been conducting a little research on this. And he actually
    ordered me dinner because I stumbled upon it for him…

    lol. So allow me to reword this…. Thank YOU for the meal!!

    it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put
