Transport Cinnamon Matrices From Lagom To Prometheus

Monitoring is a pain when it comes to distributed applications, and even more when you have shared or non-shared variables to monitor in your application. Here in this blog, I’ll explain two tools which can ease the monitoring efforts, one for generating metrics called Cinnamon and other to visualize them, called Prometheus. Let’s have a quick brief intro about these two – Prometheus – An open-source monitoring system with Continue Reading

Challenges to Monitoring a Fast Data Application

In the present landscape, the buzzword is “Fast Data” and it is nothing but data that is not at rest. And since the data is not a rest, the traditional techniques of working on the data that is rest are no longer efficient and relevant. The importance of streaming has grown, as it provides a competitive advantage that reduces the time gap between data arrival Continue Reading

Monitoring Akka based applications with Cinnamon and DataDog

Application monitoring is an important part of software development life cycle and aims to check if the application is performing as expected or not. With applications becoming Reactive, having distributed architecture and industry moving towards Fastdata, there is a great urge in the market for tools and integrations that could provide cutting edge monitoring facility for the application deployed in the production. In this blog Continue Reading

Lightbend Monitoring: Lagom

Lightbend Monitoring provides insight into applications built with Lightbend technologies. It does so by instrumentation of frameworks like Akka and Lagom. The instrumentation is done by a Java agent (called Cinnamon) that runs when your application is starting up. It collects information in runtime based on the configurations that you have provided. In this post, we would show the Circuit Breaker (CB) monitoring with Lagom. Continue Reading

Supervision and Monitoring in Akka

What is supervision? Describes a dependency relationship between actors, the parent and child releationship. Parent is unique because it has created the child actor, so the parent is responsible for reacting when failures happens in his child. And parent decides which choice is need to be selected. When a parent receives the failure signal from it’s child, depends on the nature of failure the parent Continue Reading

Monitoring Enterprise Systems: Then, Now and Then

Millions of lines of software is being written every day. Though only a subset of this code makes its way to the production system but in-spite of that, there is tons of software which is being served from data centers, private and public clouds. Monitoring the software, hardware and other infrastructural components is a herculean task, if not impossible. In the good old days, the Continue Reading
