Hey everyone, I haven’t been asking anyone for help with developing the software for quite some time now, but well, the time is the crucial part here. I wish that the day lasted much longer than it currently is, yet, since I can’t do much about it, I want to ask you for help with contributing to the open source projects that I’ve been working on. It could be anything, like a feedback or an actual contribution (e.g. via Pull Request) and maybe you will find some of the projects interesting as there is a f...
Hello, my friend! This post is dedicated to everyone who’s looking for a guide, how to start with publishing your content on the Internet and also work on an open source project along with (yet it’s not the required part and you can simply skip it). Also, feel free to scroll down directly to the tl;dr section.
It’s been quite a while since I posted the latest update of the Warden project designed for monitoring the resources in general. After a lot of back-end coding and refactoring, the time has come to finally focus on the new web interface implementation. And this is where the things start to become interesting (I promise).
Necessity is the mother of invention – that’s basically why I did create a new open source project called Lockbox. Its main purpose is to provide a centralized and secured storage for the application settings that can be easily fetched via HTTP request. Sounds interesting? Then let me guide you through the most important concepts of the Lockbox.
2016 is about to finish in a few weeks, yet there are a few more things that I’ve planned to do before this year comes to an end. I’m really into the open source right now and about to publish some tutorials. If that sounds interesting to you, please take a look at the whole post.
It’s been 2 months since the latest version of the Warden has been released as the NuGet packages. Although our focus (yes, I’m not the only one person anymore working on this project) has moved towards the development of so-called stack (brand new API, Website, Microservices etc.) I’m still actively developing the core library in order to make it even more useful than before.
In case you’re not familiar with the Warden project that I’ve been working for the last few months, I strongly recommend you to take a look, as you may find this tool especially useful for monitoring your infrastructure and resources. So what is the Warden Spawn? It’s a brand new repository within the Warden Stack that will let you configure the instance of the Warden monitoring application using the human readable configuration files – and that’s just the beginning!
Within the last few weeks, a lot of things have happened in terms of the Warden project. It has gained already quite some popularity and became a whole stack of different applications and technologies with a single, ultimate goal which is providing the unified interface and set of tools to help you monitor and automatically resolve the issues with the maintenance of your system, infrastructure and resources.
If you take a look at the title of this post and instantly think it’s a trap or bait – let me prove you wrong. This is not going to be one of these catchy titles, so “what kind of bs am I going to read here” has little use in this place. Actually, this is 100% true that contributing to the open source community might greatly affect your life – and it goes far beyond daily activities related to the coding. Therefore, let me tell you a short story about a guy, typical .NET developer, who not so long ago al...
Hey, do you remember one of my latest posts in which I’ve described how easy it is to integrate the C# with Slack? I’ve taken this concept a little bit further and created a new type of integration which can do pretty much the same thing but in a more sophisticated way in terms of configuration and available options. So, are you ready to integrate your Warden with the Slack?
Hello folks here comes another one Watcher which is responsible for the process monitoring. This one isn’t really sophisticated, as there isn’t not much to do in terms of the process validation, yet you might find it useful under certain situations.
The Twilio integration allows sending the SMS. It completes a basic setup as the SendGrid integration for sending email messages is also available. As usual, quite easy to get it up and running within a minute – just take a look into the post details.
In today’s post, I’d like to present how easy it is to create a custom watcher that can be added to the Warden instance and integrated with the whole monitoring process. Let’s not waste any more time and jump directly into the code.
So, here I come with the new video in which I talk about the Warden Web Panel. If you feel like listening to me talking again is a good idea, just go into the post details, where you can find a link to the screencast.
Do you remember when a few days ago, I’ve made a promise to post come cool stuff in the next days? Well, here it goes – my first video tutorial ever in which I describe the Warden project and create a sample console application. I do realize that this recording is far from being perfect, yet I’m happy with the outcome anyway because I’ve managed to record this video using free, open source tools without a special audio recording microphone etc. – just a regular headset Superlux HMC631. The screencast c...
Big updates related to the Warden project are coming this and the upcoming week. The first release (1.0.0) has just been published to the NuGet and additionally the Web Panel is almost completed. Not only the web interface will be available as a part of the repository, but also, it will be running in the Azure cloud in case you’d like to play with it or store your monitoring data without a need to provide own, hosting environment. And there is one more good news – Warden is getting a brand new logo.
The latest, 6th watcher, has been recently added to the Warden library. It’s probably the simplest one, but it doesn’t mean it’s barely useful. The performance watcher has been created in order to measure the CPU & RAM usage, simple as that. Sounds interesting? If that’s the case, you might find the whole note useful then.
In today’s post I’m going to briefly describe one of the latest watchers designed especially for the disk & file monitoring. If you’re looking for a new plugin to the Warden that will allow you to ensure e.g. that all of required files are available – you’ve found the right place.
SendGrid is one of the most popular services for delivering the email messages. It allows sending both, the regular, plain text email messages as well as the templated ones (called “transactional”). On top of that, it has also some other cool features such as marketing templates. In this post, I’m going to describe the way that the Warden project has been integrated with this service.
In my latest post, I’ve stated that one day I’d like to provide some kind of UI for the users, that would visualize what’s going on in their system that is being monitored by the Warden. As you may have noticed, this special day has come quite fast. In this post, I’ll present the first prototype of the web interface design (that took me just a couple of minutes to complete).
