Making the Most of FusionReactor’s Logs – Part 2
Date: 26th July 2017 Time: 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM EDTPresented by: Charlie Arehart

This is a follow-up to last month’s webinar, “Making the Most of FusionReactor’s Logs”. In that one, we discussed the benefits of analyzing FR’s logs (for post-mortem, trend, or spot troubleshooting), and we reviewed at a high level the many tools available to do such analysis. In this webinar, we will go deeper into using spreadsheet tools like Excel (though the concepts apply as well to OpenOffice Calc and Google Sheets).

We’ll quickly reprise the fundamental steps of getting the logs into Excel, and then we’ll go further with several specific sorts of analysis which can be done against such log data via spreadsheets, the kinds of useful troubleshooting information we can obtain this way, and we will take time especially to leverage the unique value of pivot tables. You’ll see how easy it is for you to use such spreadsheet features, by demonstration of the simple (but not always obvious) steps to follow.

Troubleshooting JVM memory problems with FusionReactor
Ran: 28th June 2017Presented by: Charlie ArehartDuration: 60 Mins mins

Are you aware of all the ways that FusionReactor can help you troubleshoot memory problems? They’re the bane of Java-based applications and application servers, right? Actually, sometimes what seems to be a “memory leak” actually has a root cause having nothing to do with JVM tuning or GC algorithm choices. Indeed, there are many tools and techniques that many turn to when trying to solve such problems, as well as tips and gotchas that may or may not really prove accurate or true for your own problem. There are also a fair share of (well-meaning) myths that swirl around resolving JVM memory problems.

In this webinar, veteran troubleshooter Charlie Arehart will show the ways that FusionReactor can be used to understand (and indeed prove or disprove) JVM memory problems. Is there a problem with your heap, or might you be misunderstanding something you see? If memory use truly is high, what might be the cause? Or might you have a different kind of memory problem in another JVM memory space, like the code cache, or the metaspace (in Java 8 and above, or permgen in 7 and below)? Is garbage collection happening? Is it hurting? Would forcing one help clear up a misunderstanding? FusionReactor can show all this and more as we’ll see in this webinar, and soon it will help even more!

Making the Most of FusionReactor’s Logs
Ran: 07th June 2017Presented by: Charlie ArehartDuration: 60 mins

In past webinars we have mentioned in passing, at various levels of detail, the availability, power, and value of FusionReactor’s many logs. While those stressed their value (whether for post-crash troubleshooting, or for observing trends, and more), they could only barely mention the tools available to help you make the most of them.

In this webinar, veteran server troubleshooter Charlie Arehart will take you on a guided tour of the logs, with a focus on how to get to them (in the FR UI and in the file system), how to find and use the online help for the logs, and most important how to use tools to make them easier to digest.

Post Crash Trouble Shooting with FusionReactor
Ran: 17th May 2017Presented by: Charlie ArehartDuration: 60 mins

Most people think to use FusionReactor to troubleshoot a problem WHILE it’s happening (looking at slow requests and queries, etc.), but they may find that once their instance (of CF, Lucee, or a Java server) has crashed/restarted, they can’t see anything in FusionReactor about what went on BEFORE that crash/restart. In this webinar, veteran troubleshooter Charlie Arehart will guide you through using aspects of FR that CAN very much be helpful to understand and even resolve the causes of such crashes, especially via the FR logs and Crash Protection alert emails. He’ll review some specific examples of common problems and how to troubleshoot them this way.

He’ll also briefly discuss the separate tools FusionAnalytics and FusionReactor Cloud, which each show information across restarts. Finally, he’ll show how there’s even value in the currently displayed FR information, at least to compare what the logs show to what’s “normal” as shown now.

Setting up and Using the FusionReactor Enterprise Dashboard
Ran: 05th April 2017Presented by: Charlie ArehartDuration: 60 mins

For users of FusionReactor Enterprise or Ultimate (or the Trial or Developer editions), it’s possible to setup an Enterprise Dashboard (ED) which can watch any number of FusionReactor instances (Enterprise/Ultimate/Trial/Dev) in a single screen (and optionally from a separate server from your monitored instances).
