Gain Deeper Insights with VGS Observability

VGS Observability is a metrics solution that helps organizations seamlessly analyze, visualize, and troubleshoot their integrations in a single connected experience. With this solution companies gain enhanced visibility into any incident, helping them become more resilient when an unexpected issue occurs.

Why use Observability?#

By leveraging VGS Observability, you get deeper insights that increase transparency and improve debugging capability.

1. Visualize crucial metrics on a single platform#

By integrating with the VGS Observability solution, you can stop switching between different tools looking for patterns in scattered data to figure out what went wrong. Observability surfaces the information needed to resolve issues or understand the effects of updates within your infrastructure in real time. You can combine and group data to get a fully connected view of the relationship between data from your integration health and the behaviors and outcomes you’re monitoring.

2. Gain full control over your metrics#

VGS Observability can track dozens of metrics, helping you better understand and optimize your integration with VGS. With the ability to integrate VGS metrics with your own favorite tools, like your Grafana dashboard, you can also set your own alerts and receive notifications once something unexpected happens. As a result, you will be able to execute critical decisions faster and with the accurate insights needed for time-sensitive troubleshooting.

VGS Observability goes far beyond monitoring. While monitoring helps you find out when something happened, VGS Observability taps into the information you need to determine what exactly happened and how. It also provides a connected view of all data, enabling even deeper and clearer insights. Gain full control over your metrics

Today, we offer two integrations Datadog and Prometheus that enable you to better visualize, monitor, and alert on any activity passing through the VGS Vault.

What’s Next#

Some items to watch for in the coming months include additional log metrics and integration types. Most importantly, we want to hear about your observability and monitoring needs.
