The Obstacles They Faced

The client needed to find a monitoring infrastructure that was more affordable than Splunk while providing comprehensive information. Additionally, they needed to collect logs from Rancher and its containers with minimal impact on the Rancher server and instances.

How We Helped

Romexsoft experts designed and implemented monitoring solution that effectively prevents downtime and improves the performance of the client’s production system. This led to increased operational efficiency, enhanced business continuity, and a seamless customer experience.

The Challenge

To improve business outcomes and to prevent downtimes of the existing e-commerce application built on top PHP framework and AWS Aurora as a back end, the client asked Romexsoft to build a monitoring solution for the existing AWS production environment to resolve issues before they become critical.

The challenge was to build a cost-effective monitoring solution for log, infrastructure, application and cloud services monitoring. The use of monitoring infrastructure must be cheaper than the use of Splunk and show more information. Another challenge was to collect logs from Rancher and all containers that exist in it with minimum load to the Rancher server and instances.

The Solution

Being a certified AWS consulting partner, Romexsoft did expertise of current client’s environment and decided to choose EFK cluster (Elasticsearch, FluentD and Kibana) for log monitoring, Zabbix server for infrastructure and service monitoring. The Grafana was chosen to visualize metrics via dashboards. That full-featured interactive dashboard helps observe the whole infrastructure in one place.

The solution is built on top of 3 t3.medium instances for EFK cluster and 1 t3.small instance for Zabbix server and Grafana. Grafana holds the separate dashboards with the information from EFK cluster, Zabbix and CloudWatch.

All tools that we used are available in the public domain and highly flexible. Users can see all the information about the environment in one place (Grafana). EFK cluster written in the Docker-Compose and installed in the container is managed via Rancher like simple containers. Read more about our DevOps services.
