Telemetry within BOSH
Mike Lloyd <mike@...>
I have an interesting use case in front of me that I’m trying to figure out how to approach both sanely as well as sustainably. I have a use case where I want highly structured telemetry data from the BOSH director for downstream analytics. My target goal of this use case is to have a comprehensive and clear perspective into where BOSH is spending it’s time. I could see any type of telemetry data being immensely useful for operators and CFF developers as it can help give insight into where improvements can be made.
Currently I’m exploring 3 options:
Looking across the industry, telemetry is very prevalent, and it’s almost always an opt-in model, so anything I explore . Since I haven’t seen anything like this discussed in the mailing lists before, I wanted to surface my explorations to get others’ thoughts and opinions on telemetry within BOSH.
