Zenoss Inc., a leader in intelligent application and service monitoring, announced the launch of its new monitoring capabilities for Google Cloud Platform (GCP) serverless compute instances. This enables customers to monitor the status and performance of serverless cloud functions across all regions.

Serverless applications are steadily growing in popularity, with one of the fastest-growing enterprise adoption rates for extended cloud services. But monitoring these ephemeral instances has become increasingly problematic, creating blind spots in organizations that deploy them. Zenoss Cloud uniquely enables comprehensive visibility into serverless applications in the context of the overall IT services.

“When the increasing norm is for ephemeral systems to exist for fractions of a second, performance monitoring becomes very challenging,” said Ani Gujrathi, chief technical officer at Zenoss. “Zenoss is laser-focused on meeting this challenge with service-centric monitoring for today’s extremely complex, dynamic infrastructures.”

When serverless functions experience performance issues, application performance suffers. Zenoss Cloud enables customers to rapidly and easily isolate serverless function issues, providing insight into invocations, execution times, active instances, memory utilization, network egress metrics, and error tracking.
