Librato and Papertrail recently joined forces with Pingdom as part of the Solarwinds Cloud family. We're respectively industry leaders in metrics and log/event management/analysis-as-a-Service. We process billions of events in real-time every day for tens of thousands of users with a small team of ~20 engineers.
We're looking to expand our engineering teams to help build the next generation of real-time IT analytics products. We're looking for great frontend engineers, data pipeline engineers, designers, etc. We're a modern shop that practices chatops and continuous delivery using tools like Slack, Github, Asana, AWS, Salt, etc
Yup! We actually linked to that from the article as an example C implementation. It's really solid and also has a Librato backend ;-). We're already using it on a several high-throughput services internally and it will probably warrant it's own post in the future.
Librato is changing the way teams monitor/manage their production infrastructure. We've built a world-class platform and need talented individuals to join us in taking it to the next level! While we're headquartered in downtown San Francisco fully half of our team is spread across the continental U.S, and we care more about what you can do than where you live. If you have a passion for bridging the gap between raw data and actionable insights and are interested in one of the positions listed below, we want to talk!
Front End Developer - Data visualization, Coffeescript, jQuery
If you're looking for something a little more packaged and not averse to installing a Ruby gem, this will manage multiple AWS accounts and allow you to ssh/scp using AWS instance IDs as the target:
Could not agree more. This is the approach we've strived to take while building https://metrics.librato.com ... API access for everything, integration with popular OSS for metric collection (e.g. statsd, collectd), loosely coupled integration with complementary tools (e.g. Papertrail, Pagerduty), etc.
@josephruscio - I was >this< close to going back and giving a quick mention to Librato Metrics. You guys definitely "get" what I'm talking about. I like that you provide well-defined interfaces for easily getting data into and out of your application. You focus on trending and let other (better?) software handle the other stuff.
