Redis monitoring using Prometheus and Grafana

Redis monitoring using Prometheus and Grafana


We have seen in one of the past articles about Redis clustering and how we can take backup and restore it. In this, we are going to see how we can monitor Redis nodes using Prometheus and Grafana. If you don’t know about Prometheus and Grafana read about it here. Now let’s see how we

Redis Cluster backup and restore.

Redis Cluster backup and restore.


Redis is an in-memory cache or key-value store. You can save the keys and values and access them very fast as it resides in memory. You can also persist the data in the disk as it provides an option for the same. One of the most famous ways to use Redis is its clustering mode.

System Programming: Basic Copy program in C using low-level IO

System Programming: Basic Copy program in C using low-level IO


In this article, we are going to start learning system programming by first of all creating a copy program like cp using low-level IO functions and not the standard IO functions. Now first let’s see what is system programming and what is low-level IO functions in C. System Programming: System programming aims at producing software

What is eBPF and why is it called a superpower in Linux?

What is eBPF and why is it called a superpower in Linux?


BPF also known as Berkeley Packet Filters was introduced first in 1992 by Steven McCanne and Van Jacobson in their paper The BSD packet filter: A New architecture for user-level packet capture. In this paper, they presented about BPF architecture and how it interfaced with the rest of the system and a new mechanism for

How Kubernetes works on a reconciler pattern

How Kubernetes works on reconciler pattern.


Kubernetes is very hot right now in the industry and everyone wants to learn and use it. In this article, we will read about how Kubernetes works on a reconciler pattern. We have previously talked about the reconciler pattern and how you can use it. You can have a look at the writeup in the

How traceroute works

How traceroute works using ICMP error messages.


In this article, we will talk about how traceroute works using ICMP. ICMP stands for Internet Control Message Protocol. This is used in the network layer just above the IP because ICMP messages are also encapsulated in IP packets. Now let’s have a look at how traceroute works using ICMP. When you type traceroute destination

sidecar pattern and ambassador pattern

Sidecar pattern vs ambassador pattern


Sidecar is one of the important patterns in today’s world of containerization and Kubernetes. Sidecar is a single node pattern and when we talk about a single node pattern we have another major pattern which is called ambassador pattern. In this article, we will talk about the difference between the sidecar pattern vs ambassador pattern.

monitoring infrastructure system design

Monitoring Infrastructure System Design


In this article about monitoring infrastructure system design, we will talk about how you can get metrics from any running application and software and then ship it and show it in a more understandable way. We will try to use the open-source software as much as possible. When we talk about this, we are talking

Logging infrastructure System Design

Logging Infrastructure System Design.


Logging infrastructure system design is very important for each and every infrastructure as you need to look into logs. When you have a huge number of applications talking to each other there is an enormous amount of logs that they produce. Handling this amount of logs can be very costly and a headache. Let’s look
