  • How I do actively participate in the developer community?
    I contribute to Prometheus and participate in various CNCF groups because those groups are relevant to my job functions. In the case of Prometheus I was a user of the tool long before I wrote a PR, and contribute to the tool because:
  • Monitoring several remote sites for internet connectivity? | 2021-10-09
    Prometheus is a good general use monitoring system. You can combine it with various tools like UnPoller, blackbox_exporter, or smokeping_prober.
  • Implementing the time-series data compressor/decompressor in Go | 2021-10-08
    Prometheus would be the ideal tool to understand the use case of this package. For example, prometheus/tsdb/chunckenc inspired my project. Actually, the motivation of this project was to understand deeply the compression method which is used in Prometheus project.
  • Parca – open-source Continuous Profiling | 2021-10-08
    Great question! This new storage allowed us to implement a really powerful label-based data model, much like labeling and selection of time-series in Prometheus[1]. This is incredibly powerful when slicing and dicing data to find exactly what you're looking for. Many of our early users switched just because of this.

    Also, the eBPF based profiler we just released allows profiling targets with low overhead and best of all: no instrumentation needed. It automatically discovers targets to profile, which currently supports Kubernetes and systemd. So all you need to do to profile your entire infrastructure is to deploy the agent.

    Lastly we strongly believe in open standards, so the profiler produces pprof formatted profiles, and any pprof compatible profile can be written to Polar Signals / Parca. We also have exporting any query to a pprof formatted profile implemented but not exposed to the UI yet.

    The storage we specifically designed for all of this to work at scale and low latency and cost is also very interesting!

    Happy to dive more into details or talk about more things.

  • Google Software Development Apprenticeship | 2021-09-24
    As far as I'm aware, Google's engineering presence in Dublin is purely SRE, so there is a chance that they'll consider some DevOps experience as a plus. For example, if you've worked with Prometheus, it should be easier for you to understand how monitoring works at Google.
