Worth the read learning a new approach of how to monitor, the main tool selected is relatively new and may mature over time compared to push tools already with a significant head start worth watching and learning for sure.
The title promises significantly more than is delivered. It's lacking a lot of the academic and theoretically material that I had hoped it would provide.
I suppose what I was looking for was not what this book set out to provide. I wanted a higher level treatment similar to chapter 1 but with more detail and analysis. I felt like I was continually being pulled down the Riemann path against my wishes. It's not that I have anything against Riemann. I like Kyle and have learned a ton from his blog. Riemann adoption is fairly low. The author's own 2014 survey failed to turn up many adopters:
The proposed monitoring infrastructure is also quite complex and difficult to setup and maintain. Graphite is unwieldy. Riemann, from my recollection, is difficult to setup and understand. Layer in ELK, syslog, statsd, collectd, and the like, and this is a huge undertaking.
Who has setup an environment like the one proposed in this book? I'd hazard a guess there are very few such infrastructures deployed today.
Overall, the author clearly knows a good deal about monitoring and has collected and presented good information about the leading open source projects out there. Where this book falls down is its failure to be more inclusive by treating the problem space at a slightly higher elevation.
