After we created our guinea pig in the previous step, it’s now time to integrate MoSKito-Essential into our application. Our plan for today is:
- Add monitoring to the core parts of our code.
- Download and connect MoSKito Inspect
- Learn about WebFilters and Listeners
At the end of the guide we want to:
- see the access data in MoSKito Inspect,
- record a Journey.
Despite the efforts we put into MoSKito documentation, we are continuously facing questions like ‘How to do this’ and ‘How to get that’.
Now we want to give you a guide for the whole setup cycle, which this posts starts.
The guide will cover a complete application lifecycle with MoSKito, from integration of the first MoSKito-Essential Producer to installing MoSKito-Control and MoSKito-Central setup.
But before we start, we need a guinea pig. This is what we do today – set up a simple application for experimental purposes.
Slowly but inevitable the holidays are coming and with that an urge to make some kind of retrospective for 2013. We will not do that. But instead we will shortly speak about recent MoSKito development and what lies ahead in 2014.
Why do you need software architecture?
Since the beginning of our open source engagement (and my personal java life), we’ve been working with log4j. By that time, log4j was de-facto standard in the JAVA world. However, it’s time to say Goodbye to an old friend and move on to SLF4J.
MoSKito is a relatively old (and mature) project by Internet reasoning (it made its first appearance in 2007). The project has been evolving fast, which led to re-arrangements among its components and caused some chaos in naming.
The intention of this post is to explain who’s who in MoSKito Universe. Meet the Swarm!
This is a small sidekick for this post. People often complain that automating the deployment line is sooooooo hard. It isn’t. This post explains the simplest way to automate something with the less possible effort.
So you’ve set up all the accumulators and thresholds you wanted. Now it’s time to get some rest, but you don’t want to miss your thresholds getting red? No problem, with Notification Providers, you can handle the alerting in highly customizable way. And here is how.
I have had 2 talks about DevOps@Runtime (here and here), I’ve also been talking to people about the topic and I’ve promised to write a blog post about it, which I’m doing now. But before I can start with the Runtime, I have to talk a bit about DevOps in general and what it is. Therefore, in the prologue I will explain DevOps in a NutShell 😉
I just came back from the DevOpsDays 2013 in Berlin earlier this week, and wanted to share my impressions.
