Having silo’d monitoring toolsets will often provide more trouble than they’re worth. All too often, monitoring tools don’t work well together, provide conflicting data, or just simply can’t diagnose the problem. In a War Room scenario — where people from the database team, servers, developers, IT operations, and anyone else involved — need to huddle together to identify and resolve any performance issue, a Franken-Monitor won’t suffice. Teams will hide behind the tool that makes themselves look the best and point fingers and blame elsewhere.
In the latest in our comic series, Frank is called into a War Room situation where they can’t figure out if it’s a JVM or SQL issue. When asked to help, Frank fumbles like he typically does.
