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.
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?
