    Monitoring Microservices in Production with Lightbend Platform

    Monitoring Microservices in Production with Lightbend Platform

    with Duncan DeVore and Henrik Engström

    Audience: DevOps, Architect
    Technical level: Intermediate

    Reactive systems are the next major evolution of the Internet. They allow for applications to be responsive, scalable and resilient by building on a fully message-driven foundation; but though the Reactive approach enables us to build highly scalable and resilient applications, it also introduces new challenges in how to monitor them.

    The issue is that almost every current monitoring tool relies on a stack frame-based approach where using the stack trace can provide good answers to what caused exceptional states.

    In asynchronous, message-driven applications, this approach no longer provides any useful information about issues like bottlenecks, hotspots and performance degradation. We therefore need to invent new approaches for how to monitor these types of applications.

    During this session by Lightbend experts Henrik Engström and Duncan Devore, we take a look at the traditional approach to monitoring synchronous applications, what it takes to successfully monitor asynchronous applications, and finally show the way we have chosen to build a monitoring tool for Reactive systems at Lightbend.

    Modernizing Applications with Microservices and DCOS

    with Aaron Williams and Markus Eisele

    Audience: DevOps, Architect
    Technical level: Intermediate

    The traditional architecture that enterprises run their businesses on has typically been delivered as monolithic applications running in a virtualized, on-premise infrastructure. Public and private cloud technologies have changed everything, but if the applications are not designed, or re-designed, appropriately, then it is impossible to take advantage of the advances in both distributed application services and hybrid infrastructure. Consequently, enterprise architects are looking to microservices-based architectures as a means to modernize their legacy applications.

    This webinar with Lightbend and partner Mesosphere will introduce a new framework specifically designed to help developers modernize legacy Java EE applications into systems of microservices and then discuss exactly what is required to run these distributed systems at enterprise scale.
