Cloud-native Application Performance Metrics for Resource Monitoring
Justin Petri and Professor Deepak Nadig
Like all software, cloud systems do not always perform predictably. It can be difficult to diagnose what is wrong with the application in question between crashes and sudden drops in speed. Developers can use Application Performance Metrics (APMs) to identify critical issues; however, there are no general frameworks that provide consistent performance metrics across many systems. We propose a unified framework to obtain, manage and employ application performance metrics for cloud-native environments. Cloud-native application deployments can take advantage of our proposed framework for resource management (i.e., scaling). Our framework can help identify issues faster, reduce development times and pinpoint specific areas of concern for application security teams.
