Node.js and io.js are increasingly being used to run JavaScript on the server side for many types of applications

Node.js and io.js Monitoring Support
By Stefan Thies

Node.js and io.js are increasingly being used to run JavaScript on the server side for many types of applications, such as websites, real-time messaging and controllers for small devices with limited resources. For DevOps it is crucial to monitor the whole application stack and Node.js is rapidly becoming an important part of the stack in many organizations. Sematext has historically had a strong support for monitoring big data applications such as Elastic (aka Elasticsearch), Cassandra, Solr, Spark, Hadoop, and HBase, as well as more traditional databases, web servers like Nginx, Nginx Plus and Apache, Java applications, cache servers like Redis and Memcached, messaging middleware like everyone's darling Kafka, etc.  With such rapid adoption of Node.js and now io.js, we'd be remiss not to add performance monitoring, alerting, and anomaly detection for them in SPM!

SPM for Node.js
We're happy to announce we've just added Node.js monitoring to this growing list of SPM integrations.  SPM for Node.js covers key Node.js metrics such as Event Loop, Garbage Collection, CPU, Memory and web services metrics.  All metrics are organized in out-of-the-box charts, which can be put on additional dashboards and placed next to performance charts for other parts of the application stack.

Of course, you can view your Node.js metrics in a larger context.  For example, here is a dashboard that shows Node.js metrics together with Elasticsearch metrics, making it easier to correlate performance across multiple tiers of the application stack.  You could also get your event and log charts on the same dashboard for an even more thorough correlation.

Needless to say, we made sure everything works for the latest versions of Node.js (0.12) and io.js (1.6). Installation is as easy as integration of any other module using npm.  If you are not using SPM yet, you can sign up with no commitment or credit card.  You have 30-days free on any new app you create.  If you are already using SPM, you can simply add a new SPM App for Node.js and see all your Node.js metrics in just a few minutes.  Don't see something in SPM for Node.js?

Please let us know (@sematext) or comment below, we are looking for feedback!

Docker and Kubernetes are key elements of modern cloud native deployment automations. After building your microservices, common practice is to create docker images and create YAML files to automate the deployment with Docker and Kubernetes. Writing these YAMLs, Dockerfile descriptors are really painful and error prone.Ballerina is a new cloud-native programing language which understands the architecture around it - the compiler is environment aware of microservices directly deployable into infrastructures like Docker and Kubernetes.

In an age of borderless networks, security for the cloud and security for the corporate network can no longer be separated. Security teams are now presented with the challenge of monitoring and controlling access to these cloud environments, at the same time that developers quickly spin up new cloud instances and executives push forwards new initiatives. The vulnerabilities created by migration to the cloud, such as misconfigurations and compromised credentials, require that security teams take a proactive approach, educating employees about the risks of human error. Cloud infrastructure and SaaS applications are some of the most notorious network blind spots, and with insider threat posing such a significant risk, visibility has also never been more important - or more difficult.
Blockchain has shifted from hype to reality across many industries including Financial Services, Supply Chain, Retail, Healthcare and Government. While traditional tech and crypto organizations are generally male dominated, women have embraced blockchain technology from its inception. This is no more evident than at companies where women occupy many of the blockchain roles and leadership positions. Join this panel to hear three women in blockchain share their experience and their POV on the future of blockchain.
