NodeSource N|Solid v2.2
June 9, 2017
new version of the popular open source enterprise software allows users
to send Node application data directly to any statsd-compliant system,
with a much simpler configuration setting.
The N|Solid runtime is a drop-in replacement for open source Node. It
enables deep insight into Node.js apps by capturing highly detailed
performance data--including metrics not available to teams using the
open source Node.js runtime.
The N|Solid v2.2 release adds streamlined integration with statsd-compliant
systems, making it easy to send Node application data out to existing
monitoring or reporting systems. Teams can now integrate Node
application data with existing metrics infrastructure while still taking
advantage of the unique N|Solid features.
N|Solid hardens Node.js with package monitoring, policies and 24-hour
security response. It enables more performant Node.js applications with
CPU profiling, heap snapshots and async activity and extends Node.js
with thresholds, real-time metrics, and monitoring integrations.
Ease-of-Use and Enhancing Performance
Given scarce IT budgets and resources, enterprises cannot afford to
strand investments in proven solutions yet must be vigilant to leverage
new capabilities that provide big improvements in efficiency and
effectiveness at minimal cost. As a result, while most enterprises have
existing infrastructure to collect, analyze and visualize metrics,
N|Solid v2.2 provides an attractively priced and easy way to integrate
Node-specific metrics that only N|Solid can provide with any statsd-compliant
platform, including popular tools such as Graphite, DataDog, AWS
CloudWatch, and Google/GCP Stackdriver. Organizations currently running
Node can swap in the N|Solid v2.2 runtime and have access to data they
canít already get or donít already have, without a long implementation
cycle or changes to existing application code.
and the desire to expand extensibility were priorities in this latest
release. N|Solid versions prior to v2.2 could be configured to dispatch
metrics as well, but doing so involved a relatively complex and manual
process. Starting with the v2.2 launch, this is highly streamlined and
allows customers to start seeing and using application data faster.
This latest update allows users to start collecting more detailed
metrics without the added step of configuring the N|Solid console or
manual integration with external systems. Teams can now maintain
existing workflows and monitoring/reporting infrastructure without
disruption while fully leveraging all of the N|Solid features.
Joe McCann, NodeSource Founder and CEO, commented, ďN|Solid v2.2
represents our commitment to constantly pushing the envelope to enhance
and expand the Node.js ecosystem and its value to enterprises. By making
it simple and cost-effective to directly send data to statsd-compliant
systems, we have made it easier and faster for Node.js teams to obtain
deep and actionable insights, increasing the time-to-value while
simultaneously ensuring the security of their efforts.Ē
