Percona PMM: Integrate Percona Cluster Monitoring within an existing monitoring platform

Percona PMM: Integrate Percona Cluster Monitoring within an existing monitoring platform

 5 October 3:10 PM - 3:35 PM @ Lausanne
Experience level: 
25 minutes demo


Percona Monitoring and Management is a very powerful set of tools. Built on top of prometheus and grafana, it comes bundled with major parts of a wide range monitoring system (not only database). As most of IT systems already have a monitoring platform, How to integrate PMM within an existing system ? what kind of customization should be made to ease the process ? How to stay as close as possible to the upstream project ? Can we avoid having duplicated monitoring features? In this demo, i'll show you an example of Percona PMM integrated within an existing monitoring platform and try to answer most of these questions. The monitoring system is mostly built on top of collectd and graphite, but the overload idea could be applied to nearly any modular monitoring system. We'll use tools from the Docker ecosystem to ease the integration process and put some stress on a Percona Cluster deployed in a Swarm cluster using Stress tools like tpcc and/or sysbench, to check how the overall monitoring system behave with PMM as an addon.
