Mackerel Meetup #10 in the books/Addition of uWSGI vassal plugin etc.

Hello! Mackerel sales engineer Inoue (id:a-know) here.

Yesterday, a lot of Mackerel users came to Microsoft’s lovely venue and joined us for the 10th Mackerel Meetup!

We started off the event with Mackerel producer Sugiyama (id:sugiyama88) talking about “Microsoft Azure Integration” and “Improving Windows support”. After that, MTI presenters talked about “Key points to monitoring Azure infrastructure with Mackerel” and presenters from Future Architect talked about “Vulnerability detection tools・Vuls and Mackerel integration concepts”. We also ran 5 lightning talks! Hopefully, everyone who attended the event was able to come away with something.

A huge shout-out to Microsoft for sharing such a great venue, to the presenters, and to all of our users who attended! The entire Mackerel team thanks you.

Keep your eyes open for the Mackerel Meetup #10 event report in a separate blog coming soon!

Anyways, here is this week’s update information.
