Format: Paperback
The author is clearly knowledgeable and experienced and the book is well written.

If you are new to metrics, this book is a good primer that goes deep into some of the practices and tools to use to capture and interpret those metrics.

So, if you are looking for a good and deep book on time series analysis that can help you to read and understand all those metrics you are capturing, this is the book.

There are extensive case studies of different scenarios that will show you how to interpret those time series and find the problem in that stubborn web server that (should) be working well.

If instead you want to learn how to capture those metrics and what tools to use, this is probably not the book you should be reading just yet, but keep it in your list and make sure to read it soon after you have your metrics set.

Format: Paperback
The main audiences for this book are system operators and system/network administrators who work extensively with monitoring and plan alerting configurations that strive to maintain high availability and deliver a high quality of service at the lowest cost.

The first chapter of the book is an introduction that explains the concept and definition of monitoring and alerting and the following chapters discuss monitoring, alerting, scale, monitoring in system automation, work environment, measure success, and principles. The author's writing style is clear, informative, and practical. I was worried that the content would be dry but I have to admit that the information was interesting and engaging. The only real issue I had with the book was that there is no index.

Although this book is recommended for system operators and system/network administrators, I believe that anyone in information technology can benefit from it.

Too often books of this nature cover specific technologies without laying down a solid foundation for fundamentally understanding the topic. This is a must read for both newbies and experienced pros wanting to be prepared to support mission-critical large scale systems.
