Productionize DIGIT

DIGIT is a distributed system, made of many microservices, each intended to be scaled, restarted, and configured independently.

DIGIT provides a great degree of flexibility, and allows to handle massive scale (transactions/day, managed machines). However, there is no one-size-fits-all approach for configuring DIGIT; your transactions and usage patterns will need to inform how to prepare your DIGIT deployment to be used in production.

These pages are intended to provide both an intuition for how DIGIT works, as well as concrete tips and advice to make DIGIT more reliable at scale.

Getting started

Before we can confidently productionize an installation of DIGIT, we need insight into what’s going on. This insight is provided by DIGIT's logs and metrics.

  • Logs

    In the Distributed deployments to Kubernetes, logs are forwarded to whatever logging solution you have configured.

    In the LocalDebian deployments, logs are written to /var/log/containers.

  • Metrics
