What Is Topology-Powered Observability?

Topology captures the relationships between components in your IT environment and creates the context you need for effective observability.

StackState’s topology-powered observability tracks every change in topology and correlates it with system-wide telemetry data in real time and over time. The secret sauce? Our 4T® Data Model. It provides the foundation to:

  • Unify, correlate and visualize observability data

  • Find root cause of issues

  • Reduce alert noise

  • Determine the business impact of change

  • Prevent problems proactively with topology and AIOps

Five Use Cases for Topology-Powered Observability

Unify, Correlate and Visualize

All your observability data contextualized in one data fabric

Are your efforts to meet SLOs blocked by siloed telemetry data that lacks common context? Bring it all together and create the shared observability data foundation you need to keep up with accelerating change.

StackState is purpose-built to play nicely with other technologies. It aggregates existing telemetry data from other sources, correlates that data with StackState-collected telemetry and delivers an integrated topology-powered data fabric.

Find Root Cause

Troubleshoot in record time and reduce MTTR

When something breaks, the first question is usually “What changed?” If you can't see how your topology is changing over time, you're missing an essential piece of the puzzle.

Topology-Powered Observability highlights dependencies, provides context and shows how your stack changes over time. StackState will automatically provide you with a list of probable causes. You can quickly determine which change is the root cause of an incident and fix it fast.

Analyse Root Cause

Reduce Alert Noise

Focus your incident resolution efforts

In the middle of an alert storm, which alerts matter? What’s the signal and what’s the noise?

StackState’s Topology-Powered Observability understands the upstream changes that cause downstream problems. It uses that insight to logically group related alerts and prioritizes the ones that need your attention.

Reduce Alert Noise

Determine Business Impact

Understand the effect of change and assign accountability

How will this change impact my business? What dependent components and associated services are affected by a specific incident? What is the business priority to fix an issue and who needs to be involved?

Topology-Powered Observability shows you how every change in your environment relates to your business…and enables you to determine the full impact of change.

Determine Business Impact

Prevent Problems Proactively

Use advanced monitors and AI-powered anomaly detection to avoid failures

StackState’s combines Topology-Powered Observability and AIOps, giving you the innovative new capabilities you need to eliminate problems before they impact your users.

4T Data Model: 4 Essential Dimensions of Observability

StackState combines four dimensions of observability data into a single data fabric: Topology, Traces, Telemetry and Time. Our powerful 4T Data Model is enabled by a versioned graph database that stores relationships between objects, correlated with each object’s telemetry and trace data, at every moment in time. StackState’s 4T Data Model delivers insight into your entire IT landscape by capturing every millisecond of change, from any source, and visualizing your stack both historically and in real time.

Unify Observability for Your Entire IT Environment

StackState ingests telemetry data (metrics, events and logs) from all of your IT systems - such as monitoring, provisioning, deployment and configuration management tools - as well as from StackState’s own agent. Out-of-the-box StackPacks support more than 65 integrations to your favorite technologies.

  • 70% noise reduction in incidents

  • 85% reduction in resolution times

  • Confidence the right problems are being solved due to more accurate root cause analysis

  • Reduced discovery of customer environments from multiple months to weeks

  • Ability to monitor constantly changing topology

StackState allows you to...overlay topology, time, tracing and telemetry together and to filter the noise from the system...I’m not too clear on too many other products that offer the same capabilities and that’s why we recommend your product.
