What is Dynamic DNS? How it works and how to set it up

In a DNS, a zone refers to a specific segment of the domain namespace, such as clouddns.manageengine.com or manageengine.com, where each segment can be a unique zone, including top-level domains, like.com. DNS servers translate domain names into IP addresses, assigning a specific IP to each zone as an authoritative response, representing network participants like services or hosts.

Is Waiting for the Thaw Unbear-able?

It’s not new news that organizations are producing more data than ever. But, in order to take advantage of this data, it needs to be collected, stored, retained, and then, at some point, analyzed. Most analysis tools also act as the retention point for this data. While this may (at first) appear to be the best option for performance, it quickly creates significant problems. First, those systems were never designed for the scale of today’s growing volume of data, currently at a 28% CAGR.

Improving mobile performance, from slow screens to app start time

Based on our experience working with thousands of mobile developer teams, we developed a mobile monitoring maturity curve here at Sentry. We hypothesized that once teams achieved stability and were no longer firefighting and fixing crashes, they’d shift to streamlining workflows and eventually focus more on optimizing mobile app performance. In a recent workshop, we asked mobile devs where they fell on the curve. The results were surprising.

Getting started with Pyroscope: Intro to continuous profiling

Grafana Pyroscope is a multi-tenant continuous profiling aggregation system, aligning its architectural design with Grafana Mimir, Grafana Loki, and Grafana Tempo. It facilitates the ingestion, storage, and querying of profiles and seamlessly integrates with Grafana, enabling a cohesive correlation of profiling data with existing metrics, logs, and traces.

Is It Necessary to Monitor Business Calls and Messages?

Imagine a scenario in which you take a call from a customer who tells you that a customer service agent promised them a full refund. This confuses you because the reasons do not meet the criteria for a refund. However, you have no evidence to prove the customer is telling the truth. Now, if only you could check what had been said on the call. Enter call monitoring. The global call center market alone is expected to reach $741.7 billion by 2030.

Tap Into Fully Integrated Hybrid Cloud Monitoring for Faster Resolution

Late last year we announced ScienceLogic’s Hollywood release, aimed at accelerating AIOps adoption through its human-friendly platform. By integrating generative AI insights with observability and automation, we took a big step forward in simplifying the work of IT teams. A key component of this goal was upgrading SL1’s features, specifically our now fully integrated hybrid cloud monitoring for faster troubleshooting.

Upgrade to SCOM 2022: Choosing between in-place upgrade and side-by-side installation
