We’re thrilled to announce that Gartner has named Lumigo a cool vendor in its recent Cool Vendors in Performance Analysis for Cloud-Native Architectures report by Padraig Byrne, Josh Chessman, Federico De Silva, Pankaj Prasad, Charley Rich, published May 18, 2020.
The report explains something we at Lumigo heartily agree with: in a cloud-first world, the lines between development and operations are blurring. This means, among other things, that developers need access to monitoring and troubleshooting tools, once only available to operations.
That is doubly true with serverless and microservices architectures. And that’s really the goal of Lumigo. To give developers the best possible information and tools to monitor and pinpoint bugs and performance issues in modern cloud applications — and fix them.
Here’s some of what Gartner had to say about us in the report:
Lumigo is cool as it provides a novel SaaS-based approach to microservices and serverless monitoring and distributed tracing, allowing operations and developers to quickly identify root causes of issues in modern cloud applications. The platform is focused on Amazon Web Services (AWS) managed services and combines traces, metrics and logs. Users can start monitoring once they integrate the tracer to their AWS account via automated AWS APIs. By default, the platform traces all main AWS services as well as non-AWS SaaS services like Twilio or Stripe. For selective monitoring, the user can use tags or filters. It also captures the duration, cold starts, errors and cost of every service execution. Use cases include monitoring, troubleshooting, performance optimization and visibility into the cost of running the application based on the different managed services within a specific flow.
The platform features dashboards for real-time visualization of the application, including an application map of all the connected services. The entire application map can be visualized on a dashboard, across different time frames, with a segregation between active and inactive connections. Lumigo also provides a logical flow of the application transactions, and captures summary metrics and configuration details of each component included in the transaction flow. The captured logs are correlated with the relevant resources and also available at a component-level view.
Lumigo also offers a command line interface (CLI) tool, which can be beneficial for developers looking to automate many of the day-to-day tasks associated with AWS managed services, like autotune Lambda costs, to automate integration tests or to view the “tail” of services. The CLI is open source, allowing users to manage their function as a service application.
