Rails Monitoring, reprise

Last week I posted a question about monitoring Rails applications.
Basically, the java folks at my business cited one of their reasons
for sticking with Java is it’s monitoring tools. After picking some
ears, I found out that the one we’re looking at most is JBoss
Operations Network. And I have to say, it’s pretty neat.

http://www.jboss.com/resources/jbon_demos has some flash demos
(registration required, see bugmenot.com for access)

The monitoring and administration demo is particularly interesting.
It goes beyond the normal ping monitoring and even can call up
metrics like VM memory usage, requests per second, number of open
resources… The whole suite appears to have a lot of Trac-like
functionality as well.

It looks like FiveRuns (http://fiveruns.com/) is right there with
JBoss ON but it’s not yet available. Does anyone know other similar
packages for Rails system administration?

Thanks,
Mat

It’s probably worth mentioning that as part of supporting Rails, we on
the
JRuby project want to enable using all the monitoring and management
capabilities of Java-based servers with Rails app. Basically, we’d like
Rails to fit into something like JBoss ON and similar tools as though it
were just another Java EE application.

That’s all yet to come, but it might provide an option for folks that
have
Java infrastructure and want to start riding the Rails.

Very cool. I’ll have to keep a closer watch on your project then.
It’ll be exciting to tell those guys they can have their cake and eat
it too. A number of the developers here know of Rails but can’t yet
make the point against their Java way of doing things.
