Re: CF integration with logger and monitoring tools

James Bayer

for 1., getting custom metrics from an app container (JMX, some business
foo metric happened, etc) is a goal for the logging team, but it is lower
than existing work to remove the collector.

2. Can I start and stop log collection from firehose anytime? the nozzle
clients connect over websocket, so yes i believe you can simply disconnect
them and then reconnect them later.

So am assuming that - to integrate tool like Introscope, if I go with
firehose approach then would need to write a custom nozzle/forwarder?

I have couple queries -

1. Can I add custom Metric for my java application apart from the one
which is mention here of firehose catalog [1] ? so that on Wily Introscope
UI, I can have more sliced dashboard apart from these 8-10 metrics.

2. Can I start and stop log collection from firehose anytime? from my
Introscope UI. The idea is to reduce the number of API calls from
Introscope to Doppler firehose and giving flexibility to Wily-Introscope
admin to collect data either periodically by running etl's or through UI.
So will firehose provide REST apis to be called directly from Introscope or
while writing custom nozzle for Introscope I should take care of such REST
endpoints for nozzle?
Thank you,
