What’s coming in FusionReactor?
FusionReacgtor Cloud is evolving and giving the user lots more to enable a truly holistic view across your entire architecture.
All of the dashboards you’ve talked about in this article, along with many others, we will automatically provision for you.
If you ingest data from a service then we will automatically create a relevant dashboard for you. So if you connect to a node app – you will get a node app dashboard. Same for any of the technologies that OpenTelemetry works with.
You can customize any of the automatic dashboards and make new ones yourself using our improved easy to use UI.
So anyone familiar with the Cloud you’ll have seen the current Cloud alerting. You can alert basically on any FusionReactor metric and send it to Slack, email PagerDuty, VictorOps, anything like that. We are going to improve that so you can alert on any external data that you ingest into FusionReactor.
We can automatically give you these dashboards without you having to actively create them. And then you can, if you want to create your own dashboard, Customize the ones we give you to give you the view of all this data that works for you.
So in terms of what’s coming next, we have five kinds of key steps to the journey of this. And the first is to improve alerting. So anyone familiar with cloud you’ll have seen the current cloud alerting. You can alert basically on any FusionReactor metric and send it to Slack, email PagerDuty, VictorOps, anything like that.
Observability on a local basis
At the moment we are working on the Cloud observability platform, but we understand that not everyone can send data up to the cloud for a whole host of reasons. So all of these dashboards, distributed tracing and log monitoring will all be available in a local version of FusionReactor.
AI and Machine learning
AI and machine learning aren’t that far away. What it will mean to FR users is that we will start telling the nature of an issue and where it is occurring in real-time, meaning that you will no longer have to spend time performing root cause analysis.
