We are excited to share one of our latest monitoring system integrations with you. VictorOps and VividCortex are new BFFs.

VividCortex is a secure, cloud-hosted database monitoring platform that eliminates critical APM visibility gaps. The service provides insights into production database workload and query performance.

How the integration works

With this integration, VividCortex has the ability to route all database alerts directly to VictorOps, notifying your team and making it easy to communicate when it matters most.

Here’s how VividCortex’s development team routes their production alerts to VictorOps:

1. VividCortex defines a calendar with people who can provide operations support

2. When alerts are received, VictorOps sends notifications according to the escalation policy that’s been defined

3. VividCortex then uses the VictorOps Transmogrifier within the Incident Automation Engine to annotate and transform alerts as needed

For more details on how to set up the VictorOps and VividCortex integration, check out our Knowledge Base article.

It’s survey season, folks

If data operations are a big deal to you, take a moment to share your thoughts in VividCortex’s 2nd annual State of Database Management Survey. It will only take 3 minutes to complete and includes topics like specific databases usage, which server types cause headaches, and resources used in maintenance. All participants will be entered to win one of several Amazon gift cards, so please participate.

And enjoy that integration.
