Engineering teams need to spot issues before they impact customers. However, traditional monitoring tools have several shortcomings that make this task difficult:
Manual Effort: Engineers dedicate time and effort to instrumenting code and defining alert conditions.
Inability to Detect Unknown Issues: When building monitors, teams must understand every behavior they'd like to alert on. As a result, they’re only catching known issues.
Alert Fatigue: Noisy alerts and false positives overwhelm teams. In the long term, this leads to missed alerts or delayed responses.
