Get started with Wavefront by watching a set of videos.

This page is for users who learn best watching videos. Many of the videos are also included on the pages about the topic.

  • Wavefront engineers explain how things work in a set of lighboard videos and ask-the-expert videos. For example, Clement explains point tags and source tags work, and our interview video explores container monitoring best practices.
  • Jason Goocher, Wavefront Customer Success Engineer, created a set of videos for VMware Learning Zone in October 2017.

    Note These videos were made before the transition of the Wavefront UI to Project Clarity. Some UI details are slightly different in the current product.
