    Evolving the Prometheus exposition format into a standard.

    Prometheus has established itself as a standard open-source tool for event monitoring and alerting and metrics collection. With OpenMetrics now a CNCF sandbox project, and OpenTracing and OpenCensus merging to become OpenTelemetry, opportunities have been created for new companies to provide monitoring and diagnostics solutions. While Datadog remains the 800-pound gorilla, a large number of startups and smaller players are offering a variety of monitoring solutions, and even finding a niche in deeper diagnostics, including more comprehensive solutions that include infrastructure level, Kubernetes cluster level, and microservice applications level monitoring and diagnostics all in one place, to help pinpoint the production issues quickly. I also saw a few vendors offering predictive diagnostic solutions. It seems the monitoring solution market will continue to be fragmented, with a couple of larger players and a number of smaller players competing on innovation.

    Service Mesh Interface

    I started on Monday, attending ServiceMeshCon2019. My guesstimate is that about 1000 people attended it. I believe Service Mesh is playing such a crucial role in scaling cloud native technologies that large scale cloud-native deployments may not be possible without service mesh. Just like you cannot really succeed in deploying a microservices based application without a microservices orchestration engine, like Kubernetes, you cannot scale the size and capacity of a microservices-based application without service mesh. That’s what makes it so compelling to see all the service mesh creators — Istio, Linkerd, Consul, Kuma — and listen to them. There was also a lot of discussion of SMI (Service Mesh Interface) — a common interface among all services mesh. The panel at the end of the day included all the major service mesh players, and some very thought provoking questions were asked and answered by the panel.
