ONUG Collaborative Observability Working Group Chairperson

The Observability Working Group is addressing the unique challenges of gaining end-to-end visibility into applications, infrastructure and networks in complex hybrid multi-cloud environments


This group is focused on the options and tools available for application and supporting infrastructure monitoring/visibility and observability. The backdrop premise is that both applications and infrastructure are being stretched across on- and off-prem facilities without the tools needed to operationalize their use. This working group is developing the playbook to operationalize hybrid/multi-cloud infrastructure with appropriate Observability/Visibility/Monitor tools.

Application Observability Reference Architecture


While there are many hybrid multi-cloud operational challenges, the working group is currently concentrating on addressing the observability requirements for two overarching use cases:

• Bottom up impact analysis – identify the users, devices, applications & sites affected by a problem, including the severity & extent of the impact

• Top down root cause analysis – determine the precise source of a problem by identifying the specific domain, layer, software component or physical element

These use case requirements will drive the development of a set of reference solutions, guided by a conceptual framework that the working group has adopted – the hybrid multi-cloud observability maturity model:
