Monitoring Background Jobs in Ruby’s Resque

Wed, 15 May 2013 13:45:00 EDT

Here at AppNeta, we get to see a lot about how people build their web applications. From simple PHP scripts to heavily service-oriented Java clouds to monolithic Django apps, everybody’s product is architected a little differently. We’re still out to trace everything, and today I want to talk how to get visibility into an important component of any complex system: the messaging queue. Specifically, let’s look at how to trace a job from Rails using Resque.

Instrumenting Ruby on Rails with TraceView

Fri, 03 May 2013 11:00:00 EDT

Things are moving fast for the Ruby language instrumentation in TraceView. We already support tracing of memcache-client, memcached, dalli, mongo, moped, mongoid, mongomapper, cassandra, ActiveRecord (postgres, mysql, mysql2) plus more. Most recently we added support for Rack and Resque tracing. Installing TraceView consists of two parts: 1) installing the system daemon on your host and 2) installing the Ruby gem in your application. Why a system daemon? TraceView uses a system daemon to collect instrumentation from sources beyond application code such as host metrics, Apache or Resque. The system daemon is installed with two commands that can be pasted into your shell. An account specific version of these commands are available in your TraceView dashboard once you create an account. (Under Settings; App Configuration; Trace New Hosts).

Salesforce's Heroku Acquisition Redefines Cloud Computing

Tue, 04 Jan 2011 01:38:00 EST

Salesforce.com created the legitimate SaaS market on its own. Along with VMWare, it is also perceived as one of the leaders in the dawning era of Cloud Computing. So when Salesforce does something, I think it behooves all of the industry to pay attention. Note: This is not a Salesforce.com commercial. No one's paid me to say this. Heck, I've never even met Marc Benioff. But I do believe its commitment to the Ruby programming language and the multitenant programming approach, demonstrated through its Heroku acquisition over the week-end, is something to be taken seriously. Heroku has only 30 employees, but was launched three years ago with a big idea: to change the way developers think about PaaS. It incorporates Ruby to deliver a multitenant approach that eliminates the need for virtual machines. Kick that thinking up to a higher level, ie to the enterprise buyer level, it means that companies can adapt public-cloud solutions with the knowledge that their data can't touch (or be touched by) anyone else's data. There are certainly technical arguments to be made in an attempt to render this a non-issue, and multitenant development is more complex than single-tenant (aka multi-instance). But the marketing argument will trump the technical argument in the end, I believe. Salesforce is already talking about Heroku as delivering a "Cloud 2" platform; whether this particular argument sticks or not, this general message will win. The Ruby community must be happy, too. The language made its first notable appearance during Ajax-mania a few years ago, but with a major announcement such as this of its potential for Cloud, the sky's the limit.

Ruby on Rails Storms Toward Cloud Computing

Mon, 05 Apr 2010 16:00:00 EDT

Ruby on Rails is a rapid application development platform that in just a few short years has come to be the default choice for open-source developers creating public web and departmental applications. Although Twitter is the highest profile user, there are thousands of developers using Ruby on Rails (and its JVM version, JRuby) to create departmental and enterprise applications on enterprise clouds. In this session we'll talk about the architecture and benefits of a Rails-based Platform-as-a-Service built on Enterprise Cloud infrastructure, and how it can help developers directly access and manage IT resources for their application development and deployment needs.

Symplified CEO to Present at Cloud Expo East

Fri, 26 Mar 2010 03:30:00 EDT

Although there’s much talk about securing cloud computing environments at the infrastructure layer, that’s really the tip of the iceberg. The bigger challenge facing organizations is controlling user access and enforcing security policies across the cloud to Software as a Service applications (SaaS). Unlike the past, when user identities and access control could be managed within the enterprise network, enterprises that deploy SaaS must manage user access to applications that reside outside the firewall. Access control and identity management have always been a difficult problems to solve; with the disappearing perimeter it has become even more complicated. In his session at the 5th International Cloud Expo, Eric Olden, Founder & CEO of Symplified, will cover the technical and organizational challenges that must be addressed to manage how enterprises control provisioning, access, authentication, single sign-on, auditing, compliance and integration of enterprise systems to cloud-based services.

A is for Application, J is for Jacked

Mon, 01 Mar 2010 11:00:00 EST

Almost every day now, there seems to be a report about some ‘important’ system getting breached or some credit cards/identities being stolen or insecure infrastructures getting exposed with schools, universities, municipalities, states and even entire countries being the latest victims. The recent 7Safe UK Security Breach Investigations Report stated, “86% of all attacks, a weakness in a web interface was exploited” and in his blog last week, Jeremiah Grossman wrote about the discrepancy in security spending verses the types of attacks that occur. He breaks down the numbers to show that most of the security spending goes to perimeter defense like firewalls and says, ‘Organizations spend their IT security dollars protecting themselves from yesterday’s attacks, at the network/infrastructure layer, while overlooking today’s real threats.’

Citrix XenServer Helps Rankin County Go Virtual

Sun, 13 Dec 2009 14:30:00 EST

Citrix Systems, Inc. announced that Rankin County, which ranks among the top 10 percent of fastest-growing U.S. counties, has deployed Citrix XenServer to upgrade, consolidate and maintain the county's server infrastructure. XenServer is an open and powerful server virtualization solution that helps reduce datacenter costs by transforming static and complex datacenter environments into more dynamic, easy to manage IT service delivery centers. The IT team for Rankin County, Mississippi serves more than 20 departments across disparate locations. Technology support across the county includes the 911 emergency call center, police officers on patrol and county government officials. Running out of space in the county's server room and faced with aging hardware, Rankin County needed a way to make room for more servers to support the county's IT needs while maintaining services around the clock. In response, the Rankin County Board of Supervisors funded a virtualization project that uses Citrix XenServer to provide a way to upgrade and update mission-critical server applications without any service outages or downtime.

Present Customer Successes with Context

Tue, 15 Sep 2009 08:15:00 EDT

Facts are dry. Facts are without the context of the how, why and what. Facts that fly in the face of what prospects believe or “know” won’t get you any traction in your marketing. Even if they’re brilliant. Unless you use them as evidence behind a compelling story. Your prospects won't engage with standalone feeds and speeds. Without context, there's no story. And with no story it's hard for your prospects to believe that what you say is credible.

Amazon's Virtual Private Cloud Service Goes Live

Fri, 28 Aug 2009 16:00:00 EDT

To recap, my original definition of a Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) is as a method for partitioning a public computing utility such as EC2 into quarantined virtual infrastructure. A VPC may encapsulate multiple local and remote resources to appear as a single homogeneous computing environment bridging the ability to securely utilize remote resources as part of an seamless global compute infrastructure. A core component of a VPC is a virtual private network (VPN) and or a virtual LAN (Vlan) in which some of the links between nodes are encrypted and carried by virtual switches.

Do You Trust Google More Than You Trust Your Wife?

Tue, 21 Jul 2009 23:45:00 EDT

The latest Twitter controversy surrounding the blog, the hacker and the cloud vendor isn’t disturbing – just inevitable. By now anybody with an iota of interest in cloud computing will know what this story is about. Many people are probably damning Google for their ” lack of security.” But hang on here. Aren’t people being quite cavalier with their data? The other day I refused to give my own partner my PIN… but as I write, it’s happily stored somewhere as a draft on GMail. That really doesn’t make sense.

Adobe's User Community, Turkish Spammers and Internet Terrorists

Mon, 13 Jul 2009 19:45:00 EDT

Last week I wrote about the Internet being infested by Turkish spammers. One of the comments left on the same subject said "It's really sad. I had to implement a 'country by IP address' filter for a client's site in order to present users from a couple selected countries with specifically different options on a couple pages. The spammers ruin it for everybody." I personally think the entire country of Turkey should be isolated from the International community until they learn to police themselves and educate their mountain animal spammers.

GNU Sues Cisco

Tue, 16 Dec 2008 19:00:00 EST

The Free Software Foundation (FSF) has sued Cisco for copyright infringement. It says Cisco’s Linksys division uses GNU code and won’t honor the GPL 2 and LGPL 2 and 2.1 licenses that the GNU software’s distributed under and give customers the source code to the Cisco-modified embedded firmware that would of course let users in turn modify the software. FSF wants the profits that Cisco’s made off of Linksys’ allegedly offending widgetry, damages on top of that doubtlessly tidy sum, and an injunction.

No wonder TechTarget is in pitiful shape as a competitor of SYS-CON Events.

Testing in Ruby on Rails

Tue, 11 Sep 2007 10:45:00 EDT

You've just finished writing your Ruby on Rails application, your test suite tests your models and controllers in depth, but you still can't tell from your tests if your RJS responses are functioning properly, or if a JavaScript error is happening in the browser, which means that your tests can still be improved. In this talk, the speaker will outline some options you have for testing your AJAX-powered Ruby on Rails application from both the client and server sides. The speaker will show examples illustrating how to test your RJS calls from the server-side with the use of some Rails plugins, and how to test the same calls in the client-side using with Selenium, a tool that allows you to write automated web application UI tests using any mainstream JavaScript-enabled browser.

Ruby on Rails Won't Make It in 2007 and Forget About AJAX

Thu, 08 Feb 2007 08:15:00 EST

Open sourcing Java won't matter - it's a non-event. Ruby and Ruby on Rails won't make it in 2007 either. I still do not see a compelling reason to switch. AJAX hype is stronger than I thought mainly because of the life support offered by frameworks like GWT. But still, I'm not going to recommend enterprise IT shops make any serious investments in AJAX.
