Posted on 03/02/09 6 Comments

We recently made the decision to move to Zabbix to monitor one of our busy production Apache web servers.  One of the things we need to do in the future is try to predict system outages and take corrective actions before the system actually goes down. For example, recently a busy server experenced an outage [...]

CEP is Not Low Latency Messaging, EAI or ESB

Posted on 09/03/08 3 Comments

In respose to CEP is Not BPM, BAM, BRE, BRMS or SOA, fellow blogger Mark Palmer posts, Smart Order Routing and CEP – Made for Each Other.   Mark does a good job describing his perspective on smart order routing (SOR), yet his counterpoint that SOR is “complex event processing” is quite unconvincing. I agree with Mark that SOR is [...]

The Kum Bai Ya of Event Processing

Posted on 09/01/08 3 Comments

Kindred spirit Marc Adler mentions being a bit ”turned off” by the sniping back-and-forth in the CEP/EP blog-o-sphere.  This was exactly how I felt in early 2006 when folks were sniping back and forth about SQL standards and event stream processing (ESP).  A group of vendors had created some stream processing engines and all were in “power positioning” mode with the acronyms “ESP” and ”CEP”, hoping to ride [...]

CEP is to Architecture as SOA is to Architecture

Posted on 07/25/08 1 Comment

I am often asked pointed questions (mostly from the stream processing crowd) like, ” What product does CEP?”  Sometime it seems my answer determines the fate of that relationship, as my feet are grilled over the CEP-fire to be beat of jungle drums!  The amount of money I have lost in deals that did not [...]

A Brief Introduction to Blackboard Architectures

Posted on 07/20/08 4 Comments

A blackboard architecture is a distributed computing architecture where distributed applications, modelled as intelligent agents, share a common data structure called the “blackboard” and a scheduling/control process. The blackboard can be either centeralized or distributed, depending on the requirements and constraints of the application(s). To solve a complex problem in the blackboard-style, the intelligent agents [...]

Messaging and Event Processing

Posted on 07/13/08 No Comments

In  On Messaging and Events asks, “Is event processing just fancy name to message processing ?” Most event processing systems would be incomplete without the ability to process events in the form of messages.   Messages can be delivered in either a connection-oriented protocol or a connectionless protocol.   Most enterprise-class messaging systems have both.   Many messaging systems have [...]
