More Information
Learn
  • Ship logs to a central location for easier viewing
  • Configure monitoring services to check the health of your containers and services

  • Create a Continuous Delivery pipeline for your deployment
  • Explore how monitoring and logging overlap and how metrics can be received from log files
About

Continuous Delivery is a process whereby code changes are automatically built, tested, and prepared for release to production. This video course starts by showing you how to ship logs to a central location for easier viewing and configure monitoring services to check the health of your containers and services with AWS, Azure, and Google. You will begin by designing toolsets and components which will make up the Continuous Deployment pipeline of the future
You will learn about logging services such as AWS, Google, and Azure. You will also learn why centralized logging is important and how container logging differs from logging from physical servers. You will then master monitoring containers and see some examples involving monitoring dashboards that will be installed in this course.

Toward the end of the course, you will explore how monitoring and logging overlap, and how metrics can be retrieved from log files.
