DevRelCon San Francisco 2016 is a wrap!

DevRelCon San Francisco 2016 is a wrap!

DevRelCon

This event was started as a one day single track conference for technical evangelists, developer advocates and anyone interested in developer relations in London by @matthewrevell. @mewzherder and I partnered with him to bring the event to the United States.

The inaugural event had 15 speakers, 15 sponsors, 100+ attendees from 10 different countries (from the United States of America and around the world to Japan).

The craft of #DevRel has become mainstream in the past few years. You can call us as a technology evangelist, developer advocate, API evangelist, platform evangelist, or any other name. And yes we can passionately debate about what is the right name. But essentially we help other users, whether they are developers, customers, architects, partners, or any body else, be an effective user of our technology/stack/product. We have our tools, tricks, metrics, highs and lows, common issues and connect at multiple levels. But still there is no event that talks about us a community.

This effort is to provide #DevRel community a platform to come together and discuss the topics that matter to us.

What makes this conference unique?

  • This event is by #DevRel, for #DevRel, and to #DevRel
  • Learn from the leading practitioners in the craft of #DevRel
  • You learn best practices, horror stories, and lessons learned from the trenches
  • You meet similar minded people – whether you are a one person startup or leading/participating in a team of 100s of #DevRel. Everybody learns!
  • No selling products, services, and surveys. Sponsors surely play an important role but as organizers, we are leaving and breathing #DevRel every day. This is our passion and purpose!

Twitterverse was quite active through out the conference! ~1500 tweets were well scattered through out the day with the highest frequency during @codepo8‘s session:

DevRelCon Tweets

Generated using TalkWalker social media search.

Here are some tweets that capture the feedback from #DevRelCon

We are pleased with the results for a community-driven, volunteer-based first shot at this conference in the US!

Content and the speakers are the backbone of any conference. A very warm thanks to @beardigsit, @adamd, @timfalls, @DevRelChap, @gracefr, @codepo8@kestelyn, @joshmarinacci, @grepory, @jbaruch, @rhatr, @dn0t, @qiqing, @bwest for taking time out for our inaugural event and showing that #DevRel matters!

Many thanks to all the great sponsors – @twilio, @mparticles, @intuitdev, @developer_media, @bemyapp, @awscloud, @hitchhq, @devrelco, @atlassian, @sendgrid, @microsoft, @oreillymedia, @sv_code_camp, @heavybit and @womenwhocode. We are glad that they believed in our first time event and showed their enthusiasm and support. This allowed us to not put our personal $$ 😉

A special thanks to @MSFTReactor for their generosity with time, $$ and space. @TobiahZarlez stayed on site all day for streamlined operations at the facility.

It takes a village to run a conference! And this event was certainly not possible without the support of fantastic and very helpful volunteers. In particular, @nlycskn@yenerm, @c_r_w, @jbaruch and @gwendalpointeau were very instrumental in making sure the attendees were well fed, speakers were micd, sessions were recorded, and they were finishing on time. And there were plenty of students from the University of San Francisco (@usfca) to help out as well.

And of course, this was not possible without countless hours put in together along with @mewzherder and @matthewrevell.

Over all, a very satisfying, humbling and an extreme learning experience!

Check out the complete photo album.

All sessions were recorded and will be released in the coming weeks.

Where do you find further information?

Stay tuned!

Monitoring Docker Containers – docker stats, cAdvisor, Universal Control Plane

There are multiple ways to monitor Docker containers. This blog will explain a few simple and easy to use options:

  1. docker stats command
  2. Docker Remote API
  3. cAdvisor
    1. Prometheus
    2. InfluxDB
  4. Docker Universal Control Plane

Lets take a look at each one of them.

We’ll use a Couchbase server to gather the monitoring data.

Lets start the server as:

arungupta/couchbase image is explained at github.com/arun-gupta/docker-images/tree/master/couchbase. It performs:

  • Sets up memory for Index and Data service
  • Configures the Couchbase server for Index, Data, and Query service
  • Sets up username and password credentials

Now lets gather monitoring data.

docker stats

docker stats display a live stream of the following container(s) resource usage statistics:

  • CPU % usage
  • Memory usage, limit, % usage
  • Network i/o
  • Disk i/o

The stats are updated every second.

Here is a sample output:

By default, this command display statistics for all the running containers. A list of container names or ids can be specified, separated by a space, to restrict the stream to a subset of running containers.

For example, stats for only the Couchbase container can be seen as:

where couchbase is the container name.

And the output looks like:

--no-stream option can be specified where only the first snapshot is displayed and results are not streamed.

The Docker Logentries Container can be used to collect this data.

Docker Remote API

Docker daemon provides a Remote REST API. This API is used by the Client to communicate with the engine. This API can be also be invoked by by other tools, such as curl or Chrome Postman REST Client. If you are creating Docker daemons using Docker Machine on OSX Mavericks, then getting this API to work is a bit tricky.

If you are on Mac, follow the instructions in Enable Docker Remote API to ensure curl can invoke this REST API.

The API that provide stats about the container is /containers/{id}/stats or /containers/{name}/stats.

Then more stats about the container can be obtained as:

The following result (formatted) is shown:

There is lot more details on memory, disk, and network. A new set of metrics are pushed every second.

cAdvisor

cAdvisor or Container Advisor provide host and container metrics. It is a running daemon that collects, aggregates, processes, and exports information about running containers.

Let’s start the cAdvisor container:

cAdvisor dashboard shows data for the last 60 seconds only. However multiple backends, such as Prometheus and InfluxDB, are supported that allows long term storage, retrieval and analysis.

Use Couchbase Query Tool to connect with the Couchbase Server:

Invoke a N1QL query:

cAdvisor only store one minute of data and here is a capture of the dashboard:

cadvisor-cpu-usage

And memory usage:cadvisor-total-memory-usage

There are plenty of tools that can use the data generated by cAdvisor and show them in a nice dashboard.

More details are available at github.com/google/cadvisor/tree/master/docs.

Docker Universal Control Plane

Docker Universal Control Plane (DUCP) allows to manage and deploy Dockerized distributed applications, all from within the firewall. It integrates with key systems like LDAP/AD to manage users and provides and interface for IT operations teams to deploy and manage. RBAC, SSO integration with Docker Trusted Registry, simple and easy to use web UI are some of the key features. Read product overview for complete set of features.

Docker Universal Control Plan with Docker Machine is the easiest way to experience this on your local machine. The instructions are very detailed and work out of the box. Here are some images after deploying a Couchbase image.

DUCP installation consists of an DUCP controller and one or more hosts. These are configured in a Docker Swarm cluster. And then containers are started on these clusters:

Docker Universal Control Plane Image

 

Port mapping is easily defined:

Docker Universal Control Port Mapping

Once the container is running, monitoring stats can be seen:Docker Universal Control Monitoring Stats

And finally the pretty looking dashboard:

Docker Universal Control Plane Dashboard

A client bundle is provided that shows the information about the Docker Swarm cluster as:

There are plenty of tools that provide monitoring data:

docker stats and Docker Remote API are certainly the easiest one to give you first snapshot of your monitoring data. And it only becomes interesting from there!

Getting Started with Docker Cloud

Deploying Docker to Amazon using Tutum explained how to deploy a Docker image to Docker Tutum. Tutum is now Docker Cloud.

Read Announcing Docker Cloud for more details.

Docker Cloud Logo

The key features of Docker Cloud are:

  • Authentication using Docker ID
  • Integration with Docker Hub
  • Support for Docker official repositories
  • Commercially supported Docker Engine
  • Ability to deploy and scale your applications using GUI, API and CLI

This blog will show:

  • Key concepts of Docker Cloud
  • How to create a new Docker Cloud Node
  • How to install Docker Cloud CLI
  • How to create a new Docker Cloud Service
  • Access Couchbase Server in Docker Cloud
  • How to terminate the Docker Cloud Service and Node

And finally it’ll leave with some references for Docker Cloud docs.

The blog will use Couchbase Server – an open source, highly scalable,  JSON document database for the Docker image.

Docker Cloud TL;DR

Here are the quick commands to run a Docker image using Docker Cloud in Amazon:

More details below.

Key Concepts of Docker Cloud

Let’s understand the core concepts of Docker Cloud:

  • Nodes are individual Linux hosts/VMs used to deploy and run your applications. New nodes can be provisioned to increase the capacity. Docker Cloud does not provide hosting services. Nodes are provisioned using physical servers, virtual machine or cloud providers.
  • Node Clusters are logical groups of nodes of the same type. Node Clusters allow to scale the infrastructure easily by provisioning more nodes.
  • Services are logical groups of containers from the same image. Services make it simple to scale your application across different nodes.

Docker Cloud can be managed with Web, CLI or REST API. This blog will use the Docker Cloud CLI to perform all the commands.

Install Docker Cloud CLI

Install Docker Cloud CLI:

Complete installation instructions are at Installing CLI.

Check version:

Complete set of commands are:

Save the login credentials:

Create new Docker Cloud Node

Register your cloud provider credentials with Docker Cloud Web UI as explained in Link to a Cloud Service Provider. Amazon, Digital Ocean, Azure, and other cloud providers are supported.

Create a new node cluster with a single node:

This node cluster has a single node (-t 1) and uses the tag “couchbase” (--tag couchbase). Last four parameters are nodecluster name (couchbase-node, provider (aws, region (us-west-1 and nodetype (m3.large).

Each node in this node cluster will be given the assigned tag. This will be used later to assign services to a specific node or node cluster.

Status of this node cluster can be checked:

The dashboard at cloud.docker.com is updated to show:

Docker Cloud Node Created Dashboard

More information about each node can be seen as well:

Docker Cloud Created Node

Create a new Docker Cloud Service

Create a Docker Cloud Service:

If multiple node clusters exists, then --tag is used to assign a service to a node cluster.

docker-cli#10 is filed to ensure multiple ports can be exposed using -p 8091-8093:8091-8093 format. This will be aligned with the docker CLI.

Docker image used here is arungupta/couchbase. This image is based on the official couchbase image at Docker Hub and pre-configures it for different services.

Start the Docker Cloud Service:

The updated dashboard looks like:

Docker Cloud Service StartedGet the Docker Cloud Service logs:

The log shows output from the Couchbase REST API invoked to configure the Couchbase server.

Access Couchbase Server in Docker Cloud

Inspect the Docker Cloud service for the exposed container ports:

To be more specific, exact URI for the Couchbase Web Console can be obtained as:

Access the Couchbase Web Console at http://couchbase-b9132b42.936dbe58.svc.dockerapp.io:8091/ to see the Couchbase Web Console login screen. Enter the password credentials of Administrator and password.

Docker Cloud Couchbase Login Page

And the Couchbase Web Console looks like:

Docker Cloud Couchbase Web Console

Terminate the Docker Cloud Service and Node

Check the list of Docker Cloud services running:

Terminate the service:

Check the list of nodes:

Terminate the node as:

Docker Cloud References

In this blog, you learned:

  • Key concepts of Docker Cloud
  • How to create a new Docker Cloud Node
  • How to install Docker Cloud CLI
  • How to create a new Docker Cloud Service
  • Access Couchbase Server in Docker Cloud
  • How to terminate the Docker Cloud Service and Node

coffee-on-couchbase

This is part 5 (part 4part 3part 2part 1) of Coffee on Couchbase series where we are building a NetBeans plugin for Couchbase. This multi-part webinar series is a discussion with Geertjan Wielenga (@GeertjanW) and Eben Haber (@ebenhaber).

As part of this series, you’ll also learn how to build a NetBeans plugin from scratch and learn the awesomeness behind NetBeans platform.

The recording from part 5 is now available:

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • Showcase features that have been created in the plugin so far
  • Show different icons for indexed and non-indexed buckets in Couchbase

All the code is evolving at: github.com/arun-gupta/couchbase-netbeans-plugin.

You can use the NetBeans plugin module file (NBM) from episode 5.

Let us know by filing bugs on features that you’d like to see in this plugin.

We’d love to see your tweets containing snapshots of your document in NetBeans. Use  #NetBeans #Couchbase to let us know :)

Here is mine:
