DevOps OverviewDevOps isn't a tool or a product. DevOps is a process and balanced organization approach for improving collaboration, communication among development and operation. Redesigning and find new ways for faster and Reliable Delivery for accelerated time to market, improved manageability, better operational efficiency, and more time to focus on your core business goals.
Building Open-Source DevOps Toolchain
During Transformation Towards Agile & DevOps, DevOps needs a platform where we can define a workflow with different Integrations. Implementing DevOps Culture into your workflow requires using specialized tools. Below is an outline of each key category of tools that need to be in your DevOps Toolkit, and the leading technologies to consider as you build the DevOps toolkit that best supports your team and your organization.

Source Code Management ToolsEverything we build can be expressed through code. But when everything is the code you need to be sure that you can control and perform branching on it – otherwise things could get chaotic. So to avoid that chaos we use SCM Tools that includes -
Continuous Integration ToolsContinuous Integration is a fundamental best practice of modern Software Development. Setting up an effective Continuous Integration environment, we can
- Reduce Integration Issues
- Improve Code Quality
- Improve Communication and Collaboration between Team Members
- Faster Releases
- Fewer Bugs
Continuous Integration using Jenkins
Overview of Jenkins Features
- Integration with SCM Tools
- Secret Management
- SSH-Based Access Management
- Scheduling and Chaining of Build Jobs
- Source Code Change Based Triggers
- Worker/Slave Nodes
- Rest API Support
- Notification Management
Other Continuous Integration tools for consideration
- GitLab CI.

Best Build Tools in DevOpsWhile building our organization, we have invested much of our time in research as which DevOps Tools we need to include in our DevOps toolkit and which not to. These decisions are based on our years of experience in the IT industry. We've taken great care in selecting, benchmarking and continually improving our tools selection. By sharing our Tools, we hope to foster a discussion within the DevOps community so that we can further improve.
Apache Maven For DevOps
Gradle Build Tool
Packer - Build Automated Machine Images
DevOps Tools For Continuous TestingTo achieve the desired business goals of DevOps, you need to have an accurate, real-time measure of the risks and quality assurance of the features in your Delivery Pipeline and this can only be achieved through extensive and precise testing. Following are the testing tools being used by us to automate and streamline our DevOps Processes
Unit Testing With JUnit
Artifacts Repository Management ToolsNow that your build pipeline consistently versions your Maven project, you need a place to store your objects which are being produced at the end of this pipeline. These artifacts need to be stored much the same way your source code is stored in your Source Code Management System. This ensures access to previously released versions of your product. An Artifact Repository is designed to store your war/jar/ear/etc., and distribute it to fellow developers via Maven, Ivy, or the like, share your artifact with you deployment tools, and ensure an immutable history of your released products.
- Using a Standard Artifacts Management System such as Artifactory
- Caching Third-Party Tools
List of Configuration Management ToolsConfiguration management is the process of standardizing resource configurations and enforcing their state across IT infrastructure in an automated yet agile manner.
Ansible - Simple IT Automation
Chef & Puppet
Continuous Deployment ToolsContinuous Deployment is a software development practice in which every code change goes through the entire pipeline and is put into production, automatically, resulting in many production deployments every day.
Supervisor - Process Control System
PM2 - Production Process Manager For Node.JS
Forever - CLI Tool
DevOps Orchestration ToolsSoftware systems that facilitate the automated management, scaling, discovery, and deployment of container-based applications or workloads.
Kubernetes - Container Orchestration
Orchestration with Docker Swarm

Tools For Effective DevOps Collaboration
Incident Management For DevOpsBugs - Whether they be in the code or the usability of the program, can be debilitating to any project, potentially causing the entire initiative to fail. For this reason, we use Bug Management System which enables us to identify those bugs and assure the quality of our code. For Bug Management System we use,
- Use of systems such as GitLab and Taiga.
- Workflow related to Bug Filing and Resolution Process
- Integrating SCM System with Bug Resolution Process using Triggers or REST APIs.
Continuous DevOps DocumentationThe Documentation includes-
- Wiki Basics
- Using Media Wiki, Confluence, etc.
- Documenting the DevOps Projects.
- Organizing Documents on a Wiki-Based System for the past DevOps Projects.
Securing DevOpsAccess Management
- Users and groups
- Access control lists
- OpenSSH server
- Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP)
- Active Directory (AD)
What is DevOps Troubleshooting?
- nc - Simple TCP proxies, shell-script based HTTP clients and servers, network daemon testing
- netstat- Displaying the Routing Table
- traceroute- Provides information about the number of routes present between source to destination
- vmstat- Summary information on Memory, Processes, Paging, etc.
- iostat – Gives Central Processing Unit (CPU) statistics and input/output statistics for devices and partitions
- lsof- List open files(Linux/Unix considers everything as files)
- top- Provides a dynamic real-time view of a running system
- nslookup- Query Internet domain name servers for information
- ping – Packet Internet Groper
- tcpdump- Dumps traffic on a network
- dig – Domain Information Groper, for DNS lookup and to query DNS name servers
- sar - Collect, report, or save system activity information
- uptime - To get a snapshot of info about the servers time since the last reboot, and load
- ifconfig - Configures or displays network interface parameters for a network by using TCP/IP
- route – To show/manipulate the IP routing table
