Red Hat JBoss Fuse - Fuse Management Console in EAP

One thing I love about JBoss Fuse is the ability to visualize my Camel route and see how it is doing on the fly in pretty GUI interface. In JBoss Fuse, you will able to see these from Fuse management console under http://INSTALL_IP:818/, It provide an GUI interface to manage available Profiles in Fabric in Wiki page, logs view, health view, JMX console, OSGi views, A-MQ Broker manage console, Apache Camel, and Fuse Fabric. What happens when if I want to deploy my Camel Application on JBoss EAP? Is it possible to see the same thing in JBoss EAP? The answer is Yes!

When you install the JBoss Fuse patch on to JBoss EAP, you will notice there are two WAR files also deployed on to it as well. One of them is our JBoss Fuse management console! By going to http://localhost:8080/hawtio/login with the same ID/PWD as you enter in Enterprise Admin Console. You will be greeted with the welcome page. 

On the top, You will see Connect, Dashboard, JBoss, JMS and Threads tabs, notice I did not mention Camel as it appears in my diagram, that is because it will only show when there are Camel application deploy on the container. 

Anything you can do with Camel route in JBoss Fuse on Karaf container, you can find it here too in JBoss EAP. You can view the diagram representation of your camel route, along with the statistics of messages passing through each node. And you can also debug the route in the console, start debugging under "Debug" tab, set break point, and then off we go, 

As the message reach the break point, it will pause and you can see all the body content, header information on the console, click continue button to keep going,

 If you don't like pausing between endpoints, there is an option to trace your messages running in the route. By turning the Trace function on, you will be able to trace messages going through the route.

The detail header content will also display.

You can also see how each endpoint or processor are doing with each route.

 Edit the route on the fly.
 And don't forget there are also summarized view how all the route in the container too. Speaking of container, there are sometimes needs to see how it is doing, by going to Dashboard tab, it will show the CPU load, JVM status, and various states of the container.

Under JBoss tab, from here we can manage specific to the container that is running, for instance, in Application, it shows all the applications deployed on the container, here you can undeploy, start, stop or restart it.

 This is another piece of useful information, it shows all the used port in the container, so you know where to find all the endpoints.

 And lastly, a console display how the threads are doing.

That's all for now, I found this management console comes in quite handy when trying to deploy a Camel application on EAP. I hope you do too. :)

Hi Christina, my Hawtio console is not connected to Fuse, any advice on how to achieve that?

Thanks, Patrick

Christina, I have both Fuse - Karaf flavor and Fuse - EAP scent installed on my machine, since I'd like to perform tests with both containers.

When I try to enter the Hawtio GUI using the port assigned to the EAP version, the user+password used to enter the EAP Management console does not work at all!

Any advice?

Red Hat JBoss Fuse - Getting Started with Fuse Integration Service 2.0 Tech preview

I just realized that I did not do a getting started for Fuse Integration Service 2.0 Tech preview before I did the pipeline demo, thanks for those of you who reminded me! :)

To get started with FIS 2.0, for people who has just getting to know the technology, here is how I interpret it. Basically, it's divide into two aspect,

1. Integration development, FIS uses Apache Camel as the core technology that creates, orchestrate, compose microservices into a super lightweight thin integration layer, and become the API provider and service orchestrator through exposing RESTful or messaging service endpoints. And you can choose to either package and run it with Spring-Boot or Karaf.

2. Application Deployment and Management, FIS takes advantages of OpenShift platform, and allows you to separately deploy the micro-integration service among distributed environment, at the same time takes care of the failover, high availability, load balancing and service lookup problem for you.

So, now we know …

JBoss EAP 6 - 效能調校 (一) DataSource 的 Connection Pool

效能沒有什麼Best Practice, 反正能調整的就那些。 通常,一個程式的效能大概有70-80% 都跟程式怎麼寫的其實比較有關係。

最近我最疼愛的小貓Puji 因為膀胱結石開刀的時候過世了,心情很差請原諒我的口氣沒有很好,也沒有心情寫部落格。

Puji R.I.P.



JBoss 的 SubsystemDatasource WebWeb Service EJB Hibernate JMSJCAJVM 調校OS (作業系統)

先來看一下 DataSource Subsystem, DataSource 的部分主要是針對Connection Pool 做調校。

通常,程式都會需要跟資料庫界接,電腦在本機,尤其是在記憶體的運算很快,但是一旦要外部的資源連接,就是會非常的耗資源。所以現在的應用程式伺服器都會有個Pool 放一些先連接好的 資料庫connection,當程式有需要的時候就可以馬上提供,而不用花那些多餘的資源去連接資料庫。

這就是為什麼要針對Connection Pool 去做調校。

以下會討論到的參數,都是跟效能比較有關係,Datasource 還有很多參數,像是檢核connection 是否正確的,我都不會提到。如果你追求的是非常快速的效能,那我建議你一個檢核都不要加。當然,這樣就會為伺服器上面執行的程式帶來風險。這就是你要在效能與正確,安全性上面的取捨了。 (套句我朋友說的話,不可能又要馬兒好,又要馬兒不吃草的..)

最重要的調校參數就是 Connection 的 Pool 數量。(也就是那個Pool 裡面要放幾條的connection.) 這個參數是每一個應用程式都不一樣的。


Connection Pool 最少會存留的connection 數量


Connection Pool 最多可以開啓的 connection 數量


事先將connection pool 裡面建立好min-pool-size 的connection.

我的建議是觀察一下平常程式要用到的量設定為 min-pool-size 。

Red Hat JBoss Fuse/A-MQ - Fuse and A-MQ Version 6.3 GA is released!

Fuse and A-MQ 6.3 GA has just went out. Maybe, you would think this is just only a minor version release why should I care? Hold your thoughts on that! Because they have done a lot of improvements and also added many new features into this release.

Besides various bug fixes and making sure Fuse Fabric is much more stable. There are two major change in this version update:

New Tooling in JBoss Developer Studio (JBDS) 9.1 GA. Newer Apache Camel version – Camel v2.17. I was really impressed by the work put in to make developing Camel application much simpler. First is the installation of tooling itself. Now it has a all-in-one installer so you don't need to worry about which plugins you need to check. See the videos below to see the new "Getting Started" of Fuse 6.3.

And If you notice from the above video, the presentation of camel route in JBDS has also updated. It fixed some of the miss representation of logic and making it easier to read.
