Daily Log for #alfresco

2020-02-20 10:34:21 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> if anyone knows what spring boot actuators are and want to use it with Alfresco https://github.com/dgradecak/alfresco-mvc-actuators

2020-02-20 10:34:22 GMT <alfbot> Title:GitHub - dgradecak/alfresco-mvc-actuators: Spring Boot like Actuators for Alfresco Content Services (at github.com)

2020-02-20 11:04:39 GMT <hi-ko> dgradecak: what's your use case to use spring boot actuators with alfresco?

2020-02-20 11:06:54 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> just administration purposes

2020-02-20 11:07:33 GMT <hi-ko> ah - I thought making Alfresco to the most expensive doc resource service ;-)

2020-02-20 11:09:46 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> not sure I understand what you mean

2020-02-20 11:15:57 GMT <hi-ko> I've seen spring boot actuators so far as a pragmatic way to monitor your REST apis and to to create metrics but didn't see a use case to combine Alfresco with spring boot for doc resources

2020-02-20 11:18:31 GMT <hi-ko> If one only needs a REST-API for doc resources like a s3 comliant object store alfresco would be an expensive overkill

2020-02-20 11:25:51 GMT <hi-ko> dgradecak: just as an explaination to my first question: by accident we heard yesterday that a company implemented a somehow objectstore using Alfersco as backend without using any Alfresco features and now hits scalability issues

2020-02-20 11:27:47 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> well actuators are only system metrics, not sure how documents would fit in it

2020-02-20 11:28:02 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> loggers/health/databse/solr

2020-02-20 11:28:49 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> rest traces etc ... although I did not "open source" http traces

2020-02-20 11:29:36 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> using spring boot admin to monitor those actuaros, since they are exposed with the same rest api as spring boot actuators, is actually quite cool

2020-02-20 11:29:37 GMT <hi-ko> dgradecak: thanks for sharing anyway!

2020-02-20 11:30:53 GMT <hi-ko> what do you mean by http traces?

2020-02-20 11:32:13 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> rest endpoint access

2020-02-20 11:33:17 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> https://www.baeldung.com/spring-boot-actuator-http

2020-02-20 11:38:03 GMT <hi-ko> Ah - you mean you also implemented a spring boot httpTrace actuator endpoint for alfresco to monitor http access

2020-02-20 11:40:50 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> I mean, I did not do that

2020-02-20 11:41:04 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> only : loggers/health/databse/solr are opensourced

2020-02-20 11:41:55 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> and jvm metrics with micrometer

2020-02-20 11:43:07 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> and than oyu cna see somethng like this

2020-02-20 11:43:07 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/451644531323174914/680016574257561651/unknown.png

2020-02-20 11:43:10 GMT <hi-ko> Our customers still use cifs as primary access protocoll for storing and modifying documents. It would be a nice use case to have metrics for the file protocol adapter also since this has no metrics at all.

2020-02-20 11:43:35 GMT <hi-ko> nice

2020-02-20 11:43:40 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> indeed, join me on the opensource project 😉 and provide that

2020-02-20 11:47:59 GMT <hi-ko> I think the first step would be to implement a more abstract alfFileserverTrace and than use that to implement a spring boot Trace since none of our customers use spring-boot-admin

2020-02-20 11:48:32 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> well, have in minde that actuators have nothing to do with SB admin

2020-02-20 11:48:59 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> sba is just a view for "spring boot microservices" via actuators

2020-02-20 11:49:25 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> so the view cna be whatever supports that, and there is more than just SBA

2020-02-20 11:49:51 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> SBA is so simple to setup and is also based on java and spring boot, so it is cool

2020-02-20 11:50:48 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> you cna simply monitor your apps ... and get nice screens

2020-02-20 11:50:55 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/451644531323174914/680018536625864722/unknown.png

2020-02-20 11:51:05 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> etc ... I will stop flodding now ;9

2020-02-20 12:17:36 GMT <hi-ko> dgradecak: quite nice and I'm sure we will remember for next monitoring efforts, thanks

2020-02-20 12:54:26 GMT <alfresco-discord> <sumit> Thanks guys for my help yesterday. I have disabled all behavior for the transaction to stop changing modification timestamp and modifier.

2020-02-20 13:04:43 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> You could have just disabled behaviours on the auditable aspect, just in case there were other behaviours that needed to be run 🙂
