Summarising the health of services using the the traditional infrastructure metrics (CPU, memory, network, etc.) is still incredibly popular. In my experience they deliver a vie that is limited at best, misleading at worse. Tom’s use of the RED method presents a far more useful summary of service health. I’ve had great success with using it across 100s of services and highly recommend it for consideration by anyone building or running services or APIs.
