Driving Your VMR Data Home with Enhanced Docker Container Logging

Editor’s note: We’ve renamed our product suite. The VMR is now referred to as Solace PubSub+. See our products page for more information.

In the 8.7.0 release of the Solace VMR, we added several improvements to the VMR Docker containers’ standard logging functionality. They provide the ability to customize the content, format, and delivery method of event data from the SolOS application to better integrate with the native log aggregation facilities in your PaaS.

Some examples of this data include:

  • The network health of individual client connections, including slow consumer detection.
  • Alerts on queuing thresholds.
  • Alerts when data rates exceed expectations.
  • Alerts when other threshold and boundary conditions are breached and recovered.

You can configure the VMR Docker container to direct logging facilities to stdout using configuration keys.  This allows the output from the container to be tied into the back-ends that the Docker logging drivers enable.… Read the rest

Introducing VMR Support in Kubernetes Container Environments

Editor’s noteWe’ve renamed our product suite. The VMR is now referred to as Solace PubSub+. See our products page for more information.

Kubernetes has recently emerged as the clear leader in the container services space, as evidenced by announcements from all the major public cloud service providers and technology vendors such as Pivotal and Mesos. Enterprises are increasingly looking to leverage all the advantages that an orchestration layer for containers brings, and are rapidly adopting Kubernetes as their platform of choice.

 

We’re committed to making our world class Virtual Message Router (VMR) easily deployable in any environment, have had OpenShift support for some time, and just added Kubernetes to our already extensive list of supported environments.
