Monitoring What Matters

"Is it Running Now? Good!" Too often the scope of monitoring is "the server returns 200" or "a string is present" but this is usually a small part of what our web applications do. If you ran Twitter would you want to know the number of tweets per second? If you ran Amazon would you want to know the number of orders per hour?

Lets talk about a new way of thinking when you monitor systems. Monitoring business, instead of just technology. Measuring everything and broadcasting it everywhere.

This session will cover ways I have used Wireshark to resolve my clients' network and application problems.  I don't take advantage of the vast majority of Wireshark's capabilities but I find it a great tool for diagnosing a variety of everyday problems. A simple example is recovering POP3 passwords sent in the clear.  Another example is diagnosing communications failures with vendor's applications.  A third example would  be a case where I captured rogue SMTP traffic and compared the TCP ports to netstat output to determine the offending executable.
