Introduction

Chronosphere documentation

This site contains documentation and reference links for the Chronosphere app, Calyptia Core, and Calyptia Core Agent.

Chronosphere app

Chronosphere is a SaaS-based observability and monitoring platform made for cloud-native infrastructures. With the Chronosphere app, teams can monitor data across your entire system to identify and solve issues. Minimize impact and downtime for your app and your users while controlling what data you pay for.

View the full Chronosphere architecture for more information about how the platform is structured, and to gain an understanding of the platform's capabilities.

Chronosphere platform architecture

Control costs

Use the Chronosphere Control Plane to analyze and shape your observability data to control costs and improve performance. Keep the data you need to control costs and configure rules to drop the rest.

For metrics data, analyze your traffic and usage to identify opportunities to reduce the overall volume of metrics and understand the impact of proposed shaping rules.

For tracing data, use sampling and datasets to manage the tracing data you keep and discard to help control costs and maximize the usefulness of your tracing data.

Accelerate MTTx

To reduce downtime and fix issues efficiently, you need to view the full picture of connected microservices. Configure alerts that trigger on specific conditions and provide developers with the necessary context to identify and resolve issues when problems occur.

On-call engineers can use services to determine potential issues, and apply that context across several exploration tools to analyze metric, tracing, log, and event data.

Increase observability

Chronosphere incorporates all of your telemetry in a single platform so you can manage all of your data together. Use Chronosphere Lens to identify services having problems. Create dashboards and add visualizations of query results that you can customize, filter, and focus. Developers can use this information to act on trends, correlate changes in data to incidents, and monitor status in real time, all from a single location. If they need more context, developers can build queries to drill deeper into telemetry data.

Calyptia Core

Calyptia Core is an observability pipeline platform for controlling your data through data collection, processing, and routing to various destinations. Calyptia Core integrates into your existing observability and security information and event management (SIEM) tooling to help process logs, metrics, security events, and trace data.

You have the flexibility of sending data from your existing ingest pipeline directly to Chronosphere, or sending that data to Calyptia Core for parsing and then to Chronosphere.

See the Calyptia Core documentation for more information.

Calyptia Core Agent

Calyptia Core Agent is an observability pipeline you can use to collect logs and metrics from multiple sources, enrich them with filters, and distribute them to a defined destination.

The Fluent Bit creators built Calyptia Core Agent as an enterprise version of Fluent Bit that includes long term support, bug fixes, extended platform availability, and security patches.

You can run Calyptia Core Agent as an agent that collects data from your app, parses that data, and sends the data directly to Chronosphere, or to Calyptia Core.

See the Calyptia Core Agent documentation (opens in a new tab) for more information.
