Kamon APM #

Overview #

Kamon APM is a hosted monitoring and debugging platform for microservices, designed from the ground up with one goal in mind: accept all the metrics and tracing data exactly as Kamon Telemetry records it. No averaging, no pre-aggregating, no downsampling of metrics, no data quality loss. This policy of seamless integration with Kamon Telemetry translates into better, accurate and relevant alerts and insight on your application’s behavior.

With Kamon APM, you can deep dive into the metrics your services send and get auto-detection of unusual deviations, use traces to analyze performance bottlenecks and errors, see the layout of your microservice architecture using the Service Map. When your system is behaving unusually, you can set up alerts to receive reports to your e-mail, Slack, or elsewhere. If the pre-defined integrations are not enough, you can set up a custom dashboard to visualize any service metric received by the system, as well as host metrics and span processing metrics.

Kamon APM has a deep understanding of JVM metrics, the JDBC, Cassandra, Kafka, and more, integrating perfectly with Kamon Telemetry. It provides an easy way to start monitoring Akka, Play or Spring Boot out of the box, and gives you understanding of your system and a way to discover and solve errors, slowdowns, and other problems. While the product works best with JVM-based microservices and Kamon Telemetry, but its utility does not end there - with Kamon APM, you can also ingest OpenTelemetry traces to monitor services written in any programming language with OpenTelemetry support!
