Monitoring and debugging with Minecraft
Jeremy Stott (SafeStack)
Forget DataPuppy, RailCannon or CloudSights for monitoring your app. Introducing Minecraft for server and application Monitoring. Using this new tool, spawn into your running app with Minecraft. Visualise your server heath, users, and application interactions with blocks, villagers, and animals. Use switches and buttons to toggle feature flags on and off, and interact with your running program.
Visualising the state of your program is hard, and errors are often hidden in mountains of logs. But not in MineMonit™. See user requests in real time, and identify bottlenecks using rivers, virtual mountains and tree logs. Over lockdown I got into minecraft, and things kinda got out of control.
