Data is everything; without it, you can't possibly make informed decisions. However, collecting it efficiently, at scale, at minimal cost, and without burdening developers is a big challenge.

Join me in this session to learn how we overcame this challenge at Krux, an infrastructure company that serves over 4 billion web requests daily for the who's who of publishing. I will share with you how we set up our global infrastructure, entirely managed by Puppet, to capture over a million data points every second on virtually every part of the system, including inside the webserver, user apps and Puppet itself—all for less than $2000/month using off the shelf Open Source software and some code we've released as Open Source ourselves.

This content will be of interest to anyone who needs or wants to collect vast amounts of metrics in a cloud or datacenter setting and make sense of them.
