Compose Platform Monitoring

The following is a non-definitive list of events and metrics that the Compose platform monitors. These are events that are fed to the operations team which can trigger a response or corrective action.

Platform Monitoring

These are events that can occur in the underlying infrastructure which hosts Compose database deployments.

  • Failed deployments
  • Failed backups
  • Failed backup restores
