      My experience of DevOps is that they are generally rather poor at the development side of things, and spectacularly incompetent at operations. A simple mantra from the ops side of things might be to measure what is useful, not measure what your snazzy graphical tools restrict you to. And of course, please to remember to analyse/report in real time what is measured - there's not a whole lot of point coming back several days/weeks after a catastrophic event and saying "Oh yes, deary me, bless my soul, it does appear that we had a deviation from the norm: we'll raise a ticket to investigate in the next sprint".

      I'm not saying all DevOps are the same, just the ones I've had the inconvenience to work with.
