VictorOps + Zebrium Integration Benefits

  • Automatically adds root cause to a VictorOps incident triggered by any existing monitoring, APM, log manager, help desk tools, etc.
  • Each incident is augmented with a clear set of events and charts showing root cause and symptoms.
  • This means faster MTTR and less hunting for root cause.

How it Works

  1. Any existing monitoring, APM, logger, help desk tool raises an alarm.
  2. Through an existing integration with VictorOps, an incident is created.
  3. At that same instant, VictorOps automatically calls an outbound webhook to Zebrium with all the incident details.
  4. Zebrium correlates those incident details with its Autonomous Incident Detection and Root Cause by looking across logs and metrics.
  5. The VictorOps incident is updated with Zebrium Incident details and likely root cause via the VictorOps API.
  6. If you need to drill down further to logs or metrics, it’s just one click from your VictorOps Incident.

Requirements

  • VictorOps user must have permissions to create API Keys and Outgoing Webhooks
