Typesafe Monitoring

typesafe reactive monitoring

Reactive Monitoring provides the expert instrumentation you need to effectively visualize, track and fix your Reactive applications.

The Challenge: Black Box

We understand that current available monitoring solutions give limited insight into the health, performance, and inner workings of your Reactive applications.

The Solution: Expert Instrumentation

By leveraging our first hand knowledge about Reactive applications, we’ve instrumented the Reactive Platform to provide the most useful set of metrics for developers and operations.

Our focus with Reactive Monitoring is on getting the right information out of Reactive Platform applications and integrating with existing monitoring solutions, including direct integration with custom and in-house monitoring infrastructure in the future.

  • Takipi is the first third-party monitoring solution to be supported
  • Actor Metrics is the first module to be released

The feature and integration roadmap is under development and will be influenced by the feedback from our Reactive Platform customers and beta participants.

Get Started: Actor Metrics with Takipi

This version focuses on Akka and the Actor Metrics Module.

This beta will focus on Akka and stabilizing the Actor Metrics module. This requires an instrumented version of Reactive Platform, which is based on Akka 2.3, as well as Takipi for visualization. Beta users will focus on Akka monitoring, which includes configurable actor metrics, actor-specific events—such as unhandled messages and dead letters—and support for marking transaction traces across actors.

*Note: Because Reactive Platform is based on Akka 2.3—older versions, like Akka 2.2, or the latest release candidates for Akka 2.4 are not supported.
