This post is an excerpt from our White Paper: Scaling On-Call in a DevOps Organization which you can download to learn more about best on-call practices.
Today’s post is an excerpt from “5 Steps to Improve Security and Incident Response in AWS”, which was co-authored by OpsGenie and Evident.io, a Palo Alto Company. You can download the complete white paper here.
More and more ConnectWise users are embracing OpsGenie to help manage their IT incidents and respond to their service desk tickets as quickly as possible. In this short video, we walk through effectively responding to two different ConnectWise tickets; one of high priority, and one of low. You will notice OpsGenie escalates the tickets differently and keeps all systems up to date with changes. It even continuously communicates all actions in Slack.
The OpsGenie Alerts Page shows all visible alerts and appears by default once you log in to your account. Searching for alerts is easy and can be done two ways, using a form-based search or a google-style search. Watch the below video to become more familiar with searching alerts, exporting the results, and saving searches for future use.
As part of the series promoting our newest White Paper: Creating Actionable Alerts to Maximize Resolution Speed, we’d like to introduce another automated task that can be implemented during alert enrichment. Check out our previous post Creating Actionable Alerts Series #1: Gathering Investigative Information to learn more about our first alert enrichment automation practice.
Creating Actionable Alerts is a continuous process that can enhance your workflows so that not only are the correct people notified at the right time, but they can take immediate action to reduce potential business-impact. This post is the first in a three-part series about alert enrichment. Without actionable alerts, your responders may be alerted to an issue, but cannot necessarily take immediate action, which has the potential to increase downtime and slow down the remediation process. Actionable alerts set your responders up for success from the start of an Incident, and empowers them to immediately start repairing damaged services. There are many ways to create Actionable Alerts, so as an introduction to our newest White Paper, Creating Actionable Alerts to Maximize Resolution Speed, we want to share our first method.
One of the most impressive books on DevOps, “The DevOps Handbook”, emphasis three fundamental principles underpinning DevOps: systems thinking, amplify feedback loops, and continual experimentation & learning.
Amplifying feedback loops is described as creating the right to left feedback loops, which helps corrections to be made continually, by Gene Kim in his blog post. But, let’s start with why we should do this in the first place.
