Monitoring has always been a big part of solutions design. It is a continuous process of data collection about a system for the purpose of analyzing that system. Monitoring is usually done in an active way, with a tool pinging or probing a system in order to get responses. Those responses are then analyzed to better understand how the system is performing.

In recent years, as we shift towards a more open and manageable system in a cloud environment, monitoring becomes a mundane part of the process. This is where observability comes in. Despite the many debates about what observability really means, the reality is actually very simple: it is the process of making the data required for monitoring available from within the system.
