SpringOne 2GX 2012 Replays: Monitoring and Managing Spring Integration, Building Big Data Pipelines with Spring Hadoop

News | Pieter Humphrey | February 19, 2013 | ...

In this presentation we will discuss the options for managing and monitoring applications that use Spring Integration. It will provide a comprehensive overview of the extensive support for JMX provided by Spring Integration, both in terms of providing access to Spring Integration internals, as well as creating a JMX client to interact with local and remote MBeanServers.

In addition, we will show how to use the Spring Integration plugin for Spring Insight to drill down into Spring Integration flow processing to examine application performance.

Topics include:

  • Using the Integration MBean Exporter, and the MBeans it registers, for analyzing Messaging Endpoints and Channels.
  • Exporting the Integration MBean Exporter itself as an MBean, to gain access to it's attributes and operations.
  • Using the Control Bus to start and stop endpoints.
  • Using the Spring Integration plugin for Spring Insight to get a real-time view of your application and its performance.
  • Enabling and using Message History
  • Using the orderly shutdown mechanism available in Spring Integration 2.2.
  • Using JMX endpoints (with local and remote MBeanServers) to monitor attributes. invoke operations, publish notifications, and receive notifications.

How to build Big Data Pipelines for Hadoop using OSS

Hadoop is not an island. To deliver a complete Big Data solution, a data pipeline needs to be developed that incorporates and orchestrates many diverse technologies. A Hadoop focused data pipeline not only needs to coordinate the running of multiple Hadoop jobs (MapReduce, Hive, Pig or Cascading), but also encompass real-time data acquisition and the analysis of reduced data sets extracted into relational/NoSQL databases or dedicated analytical engines.

This session looks at the architecture of Big Data pipelines, the challenges ahead and how to build manageable and robust solutions using Open Source software such as Apache Hadoop, Hive, Pig, Spring Hadoop, Batch and Integration.
