Wavefront by VMware provides metrics monitoring to optimize clouds and modern applications by delivering operational insights using millions of data points per second in real-time. Operators and developers can interrogate real-time data streams to discover new ways to address problems, identify bottlenecks, and test algorithms and hypotheses. A cloud-hosted service, Wavefront ingests, stores, visualizes, and alerts on streaming metric data from clouds and modern applications enabling superior operational performance. Scaling to support the largest data center needs, the service can measure, correlate, and analyze across servers, devices, applications, end-user behavior, multiple public cloud and data center attributes, SaaS, PaaS and IaaS environments, and business metrics. Wavefront was acquired by VMware in 2017.
