This will be my sixth year in a row presenting at this wonderful event, and my seventh year total. It will also be my 10th presentation there. Half of those talks have been "sponsor" presentations on behalf of Intergral, the makers of FusionReactor, while the rest were not.
And despite the title, "Comparing Monitoring Solutions for CF and Lucee", my talk this year is not an FR-sponsored talk. See the description below.
Title: Comparing Monitoring Solutions for CF and Lucee
If you're suffering performance and stability problems, there's no substitute for having SOME kind of monitoring in place. But there are quite a variety of monitoring solutions available for ColdFusion and Lucee. How do you choose? (Or are they "all the same"? No!)
There may be some monitoring features built-into your CFML engine (and free), which perhaps you didn't even know aboutor it may depend on which version of the engine you're running. There are also commercial third-party monitoring tools, built for CF and Lucee. And there are still other Java monitoring tools (some free, some commercial), which can be used readily with CF and Lucee. So many choices, but which is best for you?
In this session, we'll review several of these monitoring alternatives, and which are available for various releases of CF and Lucee. We'll identify several goals (problems to be solved or features one may seek), and then identify if and how each different solution meets each goal. With this information, one can better determine if a built-in tool may suffice, or better choose among other options that would best meet their specific needsincluding whether having more than one tool (yes, more than monitor against a single instance) may be the best way to satisfy different needs.
Looking forward to seeing folks there, and seeing all the other great presentations on the docket!
PS For the record, my attendance has been 2011, then 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019. And some of my older CF friends over there may recall that I also spoke twice to the CF Europe event in 2002, so it's really my 12th CF conference preso in Munich! (I also have done a couple of user group meetings there as well over the years.)
And it's funny/sad that in all these years of going over there, I've never been much north of Munich. I've been south plenty throughout Bavaria (as well as over to Prague/Czech Republic, and down to Switzerland), but I still have so much of mid- and northern-Germany to see, on one of these trips!
