Shipper for Resource Usage Metrics
Your Infrastructure Heartbeat
Topbeat is an open source shipper for per-process CPU, memory, and disk usage metrics. It is akin to running a distributed “top” command on all of your infrastructure components, with results seamlessly collected, analyzed, and presented in a centralized manner.

Centralize Infrastructure Monitoring
Every software process consumes hardware resources, such as CPU, memory, and disk space. When these basic resources become scarce and processes have to compete for them, unexpected failures occur and software breaks. Topbeat provides a scalable, low-cost way to achieve infrastructure resource monitoring in today’s distributed world.
Identify 'Resource Hogs'
Dozens, if not hundreds, of software processes share the resources of one machine or VM. When CPU or memory capacity runs out, which process is at fault? Topbeat provides visibility into resource usage in a granular way that allows you to identify and deal with processes that are using up the most resources.
Plan for Physical to Virtual Migrations
When planning for migrations from physical to virtual, it is important to know how much CPU, memory, and disk space to allocate. Topbeat is a great way to get the visibility you need to track resource usage over time, so that you can allocate the correct amount. Topbeat also works in both physical and virtual environments, so you can track the performance of your processes before and after the migration.
Simplify Capacity Planning and Upgrades
At some point, if your service grows in usage and your software is processing more and more requests, you’ll need more resources. This is a success problem! However, you should not be surprised when this happens. With Topbeat, you can monitor your resource usage on an ongoing basis and plan for capacity increases and upgrades in a controlled fashion.
