Thanks to sci-fi movies and animations, when you hear the word “AI,” what you think of is a robot with so much power to make your life easier. But, the truth is, if you’ve ever browsed through Netflix movie suggestions or asked Siri or Alexa for the nearest service station, then you’ve interacted with artificial intelligence subconsciously.

And that’s the point with AI; it is designed to feel less than machine interaction and more like an intelligence similar to humans.

Take a typical chatbot…

As a Developer and DevOps professional, the performance of your web applications is of high priority. To ensure that the users of your application do not experience glitches and to improve search engine ranking, you must optimize the performance of your application.

Load testing helps to understand the number of requests your application can handle optimally.

Web server benchmarking is the process of testing a web server’s performance to determine how well it can cope with high workloads.

Benchmarking helps you understand which…


Logging is a crucial function to monitor and provide observability and insight into the activities of an application in distributed systems like Kubernetes. We’ve curated some of the best tools to help you achieve this, alongside a simple guide on how to get started with each of them.

This article was originally published on The Chief I/O: Kubernetes Logging Tools: A Comparison

Modern applications are complex. These applications use containers and microservices and are deployed on large-scale distributed systems such as Kubernetes. A microservices application, for example, will have several applications running in the Kubernetes cluster. Observing and collecting log data from such applications is very challenging. Collecting log data from such complex applications to a central platform helps ease the burden and make the log data useful.

Why do you need log data?

There are several beneficial uses of Kubernetes log data, but the most common one is debugging. …


In terms of their general area of specialization, Moogsoft is a great monitoring and management tool while PagerDuty is a great tool for alerting that is even integrated into leading DevOps like AppDynamics and Chef. Of course, the features slightly defer and are more efficient than one another but the choice of the ideal AIOps tool depends on you and your use case.

In 2017, Gartner — an industry-leading IT research firm — coined the word AIOps to describe the application of artificial; intelligence and data science in collecting and analyzing data to ease the burden on IT operations.

AIOps, meaning Artificial intelligence for IT operations or simply, Algorithmic Operations, is a combinative usage of big data, machine learning, advanced analytics, and artificial intelligence techniques to enhance and partially replace Its operations functions.

Problems facing IT operations, including effective monitoring, automation, data management, and downtime management, are addressed by…


What would you call a situation with upstream latency of an application wherein the application hosted on EC2 is responding within 20ms while the one on Kubernetes is taking 10 times as much. Bizarre! Unlikely? Well, the Adevinta team handling the deployment was equally clueless. They ran the standard diagnostic but to no avail.

Indeed, there were some external dependencies and the team was a little optimistic to point the blame on DNS. Like they say, “It is always DNS”. So they ran a few DNS queries from the container.

Today, many companies are transitioning from traditional on-premise infrastructure to a dynamic and hybrid mix of on-premise, private and public cloud environment which runs on various software that allows it to scale based on demands. Applications across this environment generate quintillions of data that keep growing.

Traditional IT management solutions cannot keep up with correlating and organizing this growing amount of data and often leaves IT operators, with a load of issues that leads to application inefficiency and, ultimately, downtime. …


We live in a world built by our collective ingenuity and imagination. We see further and more than our predecessors, not because of keener vision or greater heights but because we are standing on the shoulders of giants that came before us. The Japanese word “sensei” literally means the person who came before.
