Engineering teams using the infrastructure as code (IAC) platform Terraform often struggle with definitions due to bad parameters, resource incompatibilities, and failed deployments. Here’s where RapDev can help.
Monitor your Terraform account and failed runsDownload Integration
Terraform is widely used for defining and maintaining data center infrastructure. Using the HashiCorp Configuration Language (HCL), engineering teams can define cloud resources and the Terraform platform will provision or destroy the necessary components across all cloud platforms. But what happens when the system is failing?
Monitoring helps you identify and correct IaC issues to keep your infrastructure running as intended. Our integration offers the out-of-the-box dashboard you need to track the most critical health and performance metrics.
Our integration enables you to monitor your IaC resource across all cloud platforms alongside applications, on-premise hardware, and more. The result is visibility for every tool in your tech stack, presented in a convenient, centralized view within Datadog. Find and remediate security issues faster and keep your system running smoothly.
Terraform organizations are a shared space for different teams to collaborate across workspaces. Our dashboard provides a high-level overview of your Terraform organizations, including the number of teams, workspaces, users, and variables. This helps you identify any changes that are suspicious or might impact infrastructure performance in real time.
Workspaces are different collections of infrastructure resources consisting of configurations, variables, and state data. With our integration’s Workspace Runs dashboard view, you’ll be able to access details around your teams’ activity within Terraform organizations. Track the status of each run as well as how and why it was triggered. This information helps to quickly identify any issues and maintain the overall health of your Terraform infrastructure.
Our dashboard also includes a section called Permissions Audits to help you maintain the security of your Terraform deployment. Track administrative access to prevent unwanted changes to API tokens, permissions, and other critical Terraform account configurations. The dashboard also helps ensure users aren’t creating new organizations or service accounts without authorization. This not only reduces your organization’s security risks, but also helps you save money.
Terraform Cloud is a fully managed service, but many organizations choose to deploy and manage the platform themselves. To accomplish this, they leverage Terraform agents to monitor this isolated or private infrastructure. Our integration’s dashboard includes an Agents Overview section to help track your agent pools, agent auth tokens, and agent statues without having to access these hard-to-reach environments.
