Session: Tuning and Monitoring your Chef Infrastructure
Are you responsible for keeping your Chef server running and making sure all the things are successful on your nodes? Let's talk about how you can use standard, open-source tools to tune your Chef server and keep an automated, watchful eye on it. We'll take a look at basic tuning of your Chef server's configuration for various services that Chef configures and uses, such as Solr and Postgresql. We'll explore technologies available in your Chef server that can help you monitor your Chef server’s health, and what you should monitor beyond what Chef provides. We'll also look at some cool ways to use Grafana to visualize all that data so you can understand your Chef server’s health at a glance.

Customer Engineer, Chef
Hey, I'm Andrew! I've been a sysadmin, systems engineer, and system developer for the better part of 10 years in government, telecom and various private industries. Now, I'm a Customer Engineer at Chef, Inc., and as part of that job I frequently see what happens when customers are not tuning and monitoring their Chef server infrastructure properly.
