Reducing Observability Costs: A Path to Long-Term Control
With observability costs skyrocketing due to the high cardinality of cloud-native environments, many companies are mandating cuts, or caps, to control spending. This puts observability teams in a precarious position - Everyone knows there is waste, but using traditional tools to identify and remove it is risky and takes time. A wrong decision can make troubleshooting harder and lead to lengthy incidents and outages.
The Chronosphere Control Plane provides a unique set of tools to help analyze and shape your observability data to reduce costs while fulfilling your existing dashboard and alerting needs. It allows you to control long-term data growth while ensuring your engineers have the necessary information to do their jobs.
In this session, we will demo how the Chronosphere Control Plane helps:
Set Quotas by service, team, etc. to contain cardinality explosions and overages
Analyze any metric to understand how much it is used, where, and by whom to weigh cost vs. utility
Apply aggregations to shape raw metric data volumes to improve performance and reduce costs
Automatically optimize slow queries to ensure dashboards are performant
