Blameless is excited to announce a new source for monitoring data for your SLIs and SLOs. Pingdom is a leading monitoring platform that allows users to monitor synthetically and with real user data both applications and infrastructure.
As a leading provider of monitoring, Pingdom is a preferred integration for Blameless’ SLO Manager. The SLO Manager is a new service added to the Blameless platform. This service helps SRE and engineering teams proactively make data-driven decisions about reliability efforts.
With Blameless’ SLO Manager, teams can create distinct user journeys that correspond to their services. Teams will use these user journeys to craft SLIs, or service level indicators. These SLIs pull metrics from Pingdom and display the services performance by using the calculation of good events/valid events for a particular criteria.
The integration with Pingdom allows teams to monitor how they are performing against their service level objectives (SLO) on any metrics captured in their Pingdom monitoring system. Users journeys are created in Blameless to monitor SLOs against multiple SLIs mapped to the appropriate Pingdom metrics, serving as a signal for when to create an incident within Blameless based on the depleted error budget.
Here’s how teams can integrate Pingdom and Blameless.
Start by launching the Blameless application.
