Altoros Delivers Heartbeat, a Full-Stack Monitoring Tool for Cloud Foundry

SUNNYVALE, Calif., May 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Altoros, a cloud-native development company, has announced Heartbeat, a full-stack monitoring tool created specifically for Cloud Foundry. The tool integrates data visualization, alerts, and the ability to log metrics, measuring real-time status of Cloud Foundry deployments—from IaaS and components to apps and services.

Unified monitoring throughout the stack

With numerous monitoring solutions available on the market, Heartbeat differs in that it is:

  • Designed specifically for Cloud Foundry as an on-premises tool
  • Monitors the full deployment stack (infrastructure, apps, and services)
  • Checks the status of Cloud Foundry internal components
  • Tracks standard and custom application and service metrics

Users can build upon predefined, easily configurable data visualization panels, by creating their own dashboards for general overviews or close-ups to get all key metrics in one place.

“With Heartbeat, we have delivered an important tool that enables enterprises to see what’s going on with their Cloud Foundry deployments, easily and comprehensively,” said Kirill Grigorchuk, Head of Cloud Foundry Department at Altoros, in making the announcement. “Heartbeat can become a critical component to achieve operational success in digital transformation that enterprises are going through,” Mr. Grigorchuk noted.

Technical details and metrics

In addition to overall deployment overview, Heartbeat provides detailed dashboards, making it a comprehensive solution for both Devs and Ops by monitoring:

  • IaaS / BOSH (CPU, memory usage, IO, network, VMs, and more)
  • internal Cloud Foundry components (Gorouter, Cloud Controller, Diego, etc.)
  • external components (such as PostgreSQL, NGINX, etcd, and Consul)
  • third-party services (e.g., Cassandra, MongoDB, Redis, RabbitMQ, Jenkins, or Concourse)
  • applications / containers

A detailed overview of Heartbeat—complemented with numerous screenshots—can be found at the Altoros blog:

Here are some of the metrics the tool tracks:

Heartbeat is now available for open-source Cloud Foundry, working with infrastructure provided by OpenStack, AWS, vSphere, and GCE. It is scheduled to support the Pivotal Cloud Foundry distribution by the end of June 2017.

Heartbeat is offered under a subscription model based on the number of app instances tracked.

Heartbeat in action

Heartbeat will be demonstrated on June 13, 2017, during the training sessions on Cloud Foundry logging and monitoring (in Santa Clara, CA):

The tool will also be showcased at the Altoros booth during the entirety of the Cloud Foundry Summit Silicon Valley (June 13–15). For an individual Heartbeat demo at the Summit or any other time, sign up at:
