avatar
Cesar Capillas Nov 12, 2017

This weekend  I read in Elastic blog that Mr. Robot uses Kibana for monitoring the Dark Army , so I decided to write a post about a recent monitoring project for representing some basic (but interesting) Alfresco JMX metrics in a clustered environment, in which I was involved last week. As you probably know, Kibana is a useful tool of the ELK stack, composed by Elastic Search as indexing backend, Logstash for data extraction, and the cited Kibana for graphic representation of the extracted......

Cesar Capillas May 02, 2017

The event was really amazing (congrats to the organizers and those who made it happen, great event). I have been in previous Alfresco meetups, devcons and summits, but this was my first time in a Hackathon. At first I wasn't sure about......

More on Monitoring Alfresco in Nagios via OOTB support tools

avatar
Cesar Capillas Apr 14, 2017

Last day we talked about monitoring Alfresco in Nagios via OOTB support tools addon  using curl commands directly to the main webscripts, and parsing the obtained JSON information. Although this direct monitoring may be valid in many situations (if services available from monitoring server, if https..), other possibility is to run curl commands locally from Alfresco server and to obtain the information via NRPE protocol. This is the recommended use in case of JMX information via check_jmx......

Cesar Capillas Feb 07, 2017

A basic customization to manage and visualize content lifecycle in Document Library may be done with a simple content model for document status. This basic customization for final users may be used with or without workflow tasks and it is document-centric (not in principle task oriented). The set of metatada for a custom  zpm:statusable aspect may be defined for a document under certain folder via content rule, custom behaviour, or on demand adding the cited aspect in Manage Aspects action.......
