Similar to logging issues, the key challenge in monitoring microservices ecosystems is that there are too many dynamic parts. Being totally dynamic, the key challenges in monitoring microservices are as follows:
- Statistics and metrics are distributed across many services, multiple instances, and multiple machines or containers.
- Polyglot environment adds more difficulties. A single monitoring tool does not suffice all the required monitoring options.
- Microservices deployment topologies differ in huge variations. Several parameters such as scalability, auto configuration, circuit breaker, and so on, change the architecture on-demand basis. This makes it impossible to monitor preconfigure servers, instances, or any other ...
