Introduction

Error-handling is a critical activity that aids in speedier deployment as digitalization and the cloud takes over the development and deployment of new features in software applications. Any error in the chain, from creating code to deploying to monitoring performance, can impair customer experience, increase costs, or abruptly halt key services. Many systems have been developed to maintain a chain or a pipeline to manage faults, only to thwart the tools and systems' limits. Most IT teams trawl through terabytes of data by hand to find the problem; this is time-consuming and frequently delays resolution, resulting in companies losing money.

Amazon DevOps Guru is a machine learning power service that helps us improve our application's operational performance and availability by spotting anomalies that are out of the ordinary. Developers and DevOps engineers can use DevOps guru to detect, diagnose automatically, and correct performance and operation issues that were previously difficult to identify and resolve. The service does not require us to master any ML abilities or develop any ML models because this is all handled by the service. It is intended to relieve operators of the strain of setting alarms and thresholds and the necessity to produce an excessive number of alarms.

Pre-trained DevOps guru background models learn our application's operational trends and provide advice based on known resource usage patterns. When several alarms are triggered simultaneously as a result of a spike in traffic to our site or application, it can be difficult to tell which alarms are the source of the problem and which alarms are simply symptoms of the underlying problem. When an issue is found, DevOps Guru carefully knits together a chain of co-related events and bundles them into an insight that may guide an engineer to the underlying cause of the problem more quickly.

Working

Data from CloudWatch is ingested by the DevOps guru, who monitors it against the parameters defined by the ML models. When a potential issue is discovered, the DevOps guru collects log data from CloudTrail from the resources linked to the trigger issue and creates insight with viable solutions. The advantage of this technique is that instead of investigating many alerts and then analyzing the alarm and going to the logs for each related resource to figure out the problem, the operator or engineer only has to look at the insight. The insight will already include recommendations for resolving the identified potential issues. A DevOps guru can monitor CloudFormation stacks, and a stack set can be used to monitor resources across several accounts.

SNS notifications can be used to set up alerts. This means we may create a central notification target in one account, such as an SNS topic, and get SNS notifications from DevOps Guru running in several AWS accounts. This would be a good method to keep track of client or managed service accounts from a DevOps or enterprise AWS account. Popular incident management platforms such as Atlassian Opsgenie, PagerDuty, and AWS Systems Manager OpsCenter can also be connected with notifications. When a notice is received in OpsCenter, a new ticket is created in OpsCenter with the details from the insight filled in.

We can either specify the resources we want to monitor or instruct the DevOps guru to monitor everything in our account when we start DevOps guru (via the CLI or console). The service is charged by the number of resource hours examined for each active resource. We can use AWS cloud formation stacks or AWS tags to confine the service to only the most important resources, such as a production environment. We can also use an IAM policy to restrict access to resources. Suppose we want to remove access to resources generating insights needlessly. We can provide an IAM role when we create the service or use the default DevOpsGuru Role and update the policy.

We can also nominate or create up to two SNS topics to get notifications when installing DevOps guru. The interested parties would then be subscribed to the topic to receive the insights as they are generated. It will take about 2 hours to build a baseline when we enable the service. It's worth noting that if we're having issues when we first start DevOps Guru, this may be ingested as part of the baseline, making it difficult to pinpoint the application or environment behavior we're looking for. So that's a quick overview of Amazon DevOps Guru and its applications.

Benefits

Automatically detect operational issues.

Amazon DevOps Guru collects and analyses data, including application metrics, logs, events, and behaviors that differ from regular operating patterns using machine learning. The service is designed to detect and notify on operational issues, and hazards such as impending resource depletion, code, and configuration changes that may result in outages, memory leaks, under-provisioned compute capacity and database input/output (I/O) overutilization.

Resolve issues quickly with ML-powered insights.

By linking aberrant behavior and operational events, Amazon DevOps Guru helps shorten its time to discover and fix the core cause of issues. DevOps Guru is designed to generate insights with a summary of related anomalies and contextual information about a problem as it arises. It assists in providing actionable remediation advice when possible.

Easily scale and maintain availability.

Amazon DevOps Guru saves us the time and effort of manually updating static rules and alerts to monitor complex and dynamic systems efficiently. DevOps Guru automatically analyses metrics, logs, and events when migrating or adopting new AWS services. The system then generates insights, allowing us to adjust to changing behavior and system architecture quickly.

Reduce noise and alarm fatigue.

By leveraging pre-trained ML models to correlate and combine similar anomalies and highlight the most critical warnings, Amazon DevOps Guru helps developers and IT operators decrease alarm noise and overcome alarm fatigue. We may reduce the need to maintain various monitoring tools and alarms with DevOps Guru, allowing us to focus on the root cause of the problem and its resolution.

Uses Cases

Improve operational performance and availability.

Prevent operational incidents from happening in the first place. Amazon DevOps Guru is meant to uncover medium- and low-severity issues that affect our application's stability over time, such as auto-scaling group restrictions, changes in latency patterns, or increased API call volume.

Dynamically discover new resources and metrics.

Amazon DevOps Guru is meant to learn patterns for each new statistic and alert us with early indications of operational difficulties as our application expands and new supported resources are introduced. DevOps Guru automatically ingests metrics from these resources and classifies them, eliminating the need to update or rectify malfunctioning alerts.

Reduce mean-time-to-recovery.

DevOps Guru's operational insights quickly diagnose and resolve issues with AWS resources, including relational databases, such as resource overutilization or SQL query misbehavior. These insights shorten mean-time-to-recovery (MTTR) by analyzing contextual data such as logs and relevant events to make recommendations based on pertinent information on impacted resources and related abnormalities.

Proactive resource management.

We can use DevOps Guru to predict when our exhaustible resources, such as RAM, CPU, and disc space, will reach their provided limits. DevOps Guru continuously ingests and analyses our AWS resources and applications, and providing a low-noise notification in the dashboard, can help us avoid an oncoming outage.

Frequently Asked Questions

What relationship is between Amazon DevOps Guru and other operational services like AWS Systems Manager OpsCenter?

Amazon DevOps Guru operational insights can be surfaced right within the OpsCenter dashboard as OpsItems if you use AWS Systems Manager OpsCenter.

How is my operational data protected by Amazon DevOps Guru?

Amazon DevOps Guru uses encryption in transit and at rest to protect your material during ingestion and data analysis.

Amazon DevOps Guru works with which monitoring services?

Amazon DevOps Guru may access data from Amazon CloudWatch, AWS Config, AWS System Manager OpsCenter, AWS CloudFormation, and AWS X-Ray when it first launches. Partner operations monitoring and issue management solutions like Atlassian OpsGenie and Pager Duty are also connected with Amazon DevOps Guru.

What is Devopsguru, exactly?

Amazon DevOps Guru is a machine learning (ML)-powered service that makes it simple to improve an application's operational performance and availability.
