Netflix OSS monitoring

Industry-leading insight into Eureka and Hystrix

What is Netflix OSS?

Netflix Open Source Software (OSS) is a platform powered by Netflix, Inc. As Netflix is committed to open source, the free Netflix Open Source Platform includes (among other tools):

  • Eureka:
    AWS Service registry for resilient mid-tier load balancing and failover.
  • Hystrix:
    Hystrix is a latency and fault tolerance library designed to isolate points of access to remote systems, services, and 3rd party libraries. It prevents cascading failures and enables resilience in complex distributed systems where failure is inevitable.

Concerned about service lookup overhead?

A discovery server is at the heart of each distinguished orchestration layer. This makes Eureka is a vital component of many resilient environments.

Detailed insight into lookup performance is key to healthy orchestration layer performance.

Dynatrace keeps track of Eureka service lookup times—providing you with continuous insight into lookup performance.

Fully visualized environment dynamics

Resilient systems must be self-healing because instance failures are the norm, not the exception. Trip counts are a great indicator of how often self-healing mechanisms are utilized.

However, trip counts must be considered in context with the overall environment before you can determine whether or not they're critical fail-overs. With automatic baselining and problem correlation, Dynatrace has the algorithms and artificial intelligence you need to evaluate such conditions and keep your business running at peak performance.

Monitoring for your entire environment, not just a single technology

Netflix OSS environments can run on any infrastructure, regardless of whether they're hosted in a public or private cloud.

That’s why monitoring of individual components is only half the battle.

Dynatrace monitors your full-stack, from infrastructure to the application level, no matter whether you’re building your business on bare-metal, virtual machines, or containers.
