Despite not being the most glamorous aspects of software development, logging and monitoring are essential functions to help understand how your software works. Whether you’re a developer, systems administrator or project manager, or whether you’re working on a lightweight microservice or a colossal, monolithic system — logging and monitoring are your faithful friends. If you need to figure out what’s gone wrong, predict when problems might arise, or if you need to ensure correctness in your system, then logging and monitoring will be there to help.

The DevOps movement is all about efficiency in process — optimising the journey from idea to product, or to echo a previous Naimuri blog post, minimising the time from Asks-to-Gets.

Every company’s development and delivery structure is different, but generally there are seven stages behind the process: Build, Test, Package, Provision, Secure, Deploy, Maintain — with some blurred lines between these definitions (e.g. security should be a consideration for the whole lifecycle).
