Observability Assesment and Strategy

Observability assessment refers to the process of evaluating the level of observability of a system, which is the ability to infer the internal state of a system from its external behavior. This assessment involves analyzing the data and telemetry collected from a system, as well as its logs and traces, to determine whether the system is sufficiently observable.

Observability strategy refers to the approach used to enhance the observability of a system. This strategy may include implementing tools and processes to collect and analyze data, such as metrics, logs, and traces, and creating dashboards and alerts to monitor system behavior. Additionally, an observability strategy may involve investing in new technologies or processes that improve the overall observability of a system, such as distributed tracing, structured logging, or automated anomaly detection.

To perform an observability assessment, Liztek shall adapt following approach:

  1. To identifying the key components of the system and the data sources that are currently available.
  2. To evaluate the quality and quantity of data being collected and the tools and processes used to analyze it. This evaluation can help identify any gaps or weaknesses in the observability of the system.

Once observability assessment is done , Liztek shall help to develop an observability strategy that addresses any identified gaps or weaknesses.

This strategy should include clear goals and objectives, such as improving system performance, identifying and resolving issues more quickly, or reducing downtime.

Additionally, the strategy should include specific actions and timelines for implementation, as well as metrics to measure the effectiveness of the strategy over time.
