ServicePulse Current Version

Production monitoring for distributed systems

Real-time monitoring customized to fit distributed applications in general, and your application's specific needs in particular.

Keep track of the health of your system's endpoints, monitor for any processing errors, send failed messages for reprocessing and make sure your specific environment's needs are met, all in one consolidated dashboard.

Setting up the project for development

Connecting to ServiceControl and ServiceControl Monitoring

ServicePulse mostly presents data provided by ServiceControl. Endpoint metrics data is provided by ServiceControl Monitoring.

The URLs for both services can be set in ServicePulse.Host/app/js/app.constants.js under the constant scConfig.

URL ACL Reservation

ServicePulse depends on a self-hosted webserver. In order to start the project a URL ACL reservation needs to be setup. Either run Visual Studio with Administrative privileges or run the following command to add the required URL ACL reservation:

netsh http add urlacl url=http://+:8081/ user=Everyone

Setting up package manager

ServicePulse uses npm and bower as package managers. For the solution to work dependencies needs to be downloaded before opening the ServicePulse website.

Install dependencies

Install the following dependencies if you don't have them installed yet

Set development environment

  • Open cmd window and navigate into ServicePulse\src\ServicePulse.Host path
  • run npm install to install all the npm dependencies
  • run the following command npm run dev. This script will use webpack configuration to finish ServicePulse's required configuration, start watching root folder for changes, and it will host a dev server on port 8080

In case npm run dev fails with an error related to git submodule not properly configured, run the npm install command again to ensure all required dependencies are available, and then run npm run dev.

After doing the above steps one can open Visual Studio or your IDE of choice and continue working on this project. The site will be served for debugging at http://localhost:8080.

Provided npm scripts

  • test - runs js tests in ServicePulse.Host.Test project
  • setup - this command runs few commands
    • installs the npm packages
    • runs webpack
  • load - this command does the same thing that setup but webpack is run only once to produce artifacts. This command is used by the builder
  • serve - serves js artifacts using http-server
  • webpack - runs webpack command, which does the following things for the given modules (monitoring, configuration)
    • joins js together
    • runs babel transpiler
    • has a file watcher to run the above whenever file is saved
  • lint - checks with eslint all js files
  • dev - runs in parallel two scripts webpack and serve

NOTE: Webpack observes files and updates the artifacts whenever they are changed, however at the moment not every bit of code is processed by webpack. Only monitoring and configuration is.

Configuring automated tests

For information how to run automated tests please follow ServicePulse.Host.Tests/Readme.
