RED (Rates, Errors, Duration) is a spinoff from Google’s Golden Signals designed for monitoring microservices. However, RED use has clearly demonstrated that the applicability is applicable to any services-based architecture.

With RED, unlike the modern belief in observability, your architecture is watched from aspects of multiple dimensions. You receive alerts and indications not just from anomalies, but also from headache alerts. By seeing multiple dimensions of concerns, be they failures in service or activity to close to the edge of capability, these combined monitors and deep-dive, focused access get you to your root cause faster, with less false positives and quicker resolution.

Join Dave McAllister as he explores a RED driven analysis of an active application environment.
