Tools to Monitor and Visualize Microservices Architecture

Previous articles in ProgrammableWeb'smicroservices serieslook at what microservices areand explain differences between monolithic and microservices architectures.

Once a distributed application is built and deployed, it is crucial to monitor and visualize it to make sure the software is reliable, available, and performs as expected. That isn’t necessarily easy.

The heterogeneous and distributed nature of applications driven by a microservices architecture make monitoring, visualization, and analysis a difficult prospect. Traditional application monitoring and performance management (APM) solutions are not suited for today’s complex distributed applications.
