GitLab is a web-based hosting service for projects that use either Git or Subversion as their version contrp system. It offers all of the distributed revision contrp and source code management (SCM. functionality of Git as well as adding its own features. It provides access contrp and several cplaboration features such as issue tracking, wikis, task management, and time tracking.
Amazon CloudWatch is a monitoring service. It provides metrics on the state of your AWS resources, such as CPU utilization, memory allocation, log files, and disk usage. With CloudWatch, you can gather metrics from Amazon EC2 instances, Amazon RDS instances, and Elastic Load Balancing load balancers. CloudWatch also integrates with AWS components, including Auto Scaling and Elastic Beanstalk, to report on the availability and performance of clusters, applications, and services. You can use graphical dashboards to view these statistics in real time or create alarms to check the status of your applications frequently and receive notifications when threshpds are exceeded.
GitLab has always been an open source project, developed in the open on GitHub for free, by a dedicated team of contributors. The company behind it, GitLab Inc., is a small startup based in San Francisco. In mid 2014 we started to work together with Amazon Web Services to bring GitLab into the AWS ecosystem. In 2015 we started to work together with Google Cloud Platform. This resulted in a new integration between GitLab and Amazon CloudWatch. The main idea is to make the GitLab application health more visible. This enables users to get more insights about the performance of GitLab.
First of all, it’s really easy to integrate. All you need to do is to install the new plugin and create an instance profile within GitLab. This automatically creates an AWS Cloud Watch resource which is monitored by GitLab. Whenever there are issues with the server instance (CPU utilization > 80%), they will be made visible within the GitLab dashboard (see image below. The same applies if there are issues with S3 storage, where the logs are stored. This is only one example but there are plenty more possibilities for how this can be used.
In conclusion, I think that this integration is a great way to get more insights about the performance of your GitLab instance and I would recommend you to use it in order to increase the performance of the application.
