Below are some of the highlights in the Solace Developer Community in February: 

PubSub+ Cloud Distributed Tracing GA 

Early this month, we announced the general availability of PubSub+ Distributed Tracing. Customers can now purchase subscriptions to enable distributed tracing on event broker services version 10.2.1 and leverage the full set of observability capabilities from the PubSub+ Cloud Console. PubSub+ Cloud’s distributed tracing capabilities offer the complete  management of distributed tracing configuration and life-cycle management of the OpenTelemetry Collector. OpenTelemetry traces generated by the PubSub+ Cloud event broker services can now be forwarded to customers’ Datadog or Jaeger APM observability tools.

You Asked, We Answered! 

In this section, I’ll review a few questions our community members asked this month that you may be interested in reading about. 

  • Community member aditya wanted to know the difference between Replication Group Message ID and JMS Message ID. Aaron jumped in and gave a short and clear explanation. 
  • Community member prashantk2000 was deploying the PubSub+ broker in Kubernetes cluster with a Helm chart. However, the spooled messages got deleted after the broker container restarted in Kubernetes. Karl Ossoinig helped with thought-provoking questions and analyzed the cause of the problem. If you have the same issue, it is worth reading the community post and the comments. 
  • Community member tiwaabh wondered if there is a way to apply filter on the outgoing messages from a queue based on topics. Andrew Mackenzie and Aaron answered the question and explained why. Karl Ossoinig also provided another option to consider in the future. Read the thread to learn more. 
  • Community member sjerin was looking for a way for the application to control the number of messages being published. marc introduced the “reject message to sender” feature. Aaron brought up Thread.sleep(1); and described the options for different scenarios. Read the community post for more details.
