Gone are the times when developers’ jobs ended with the release of the application. Nowadays, developers care more and more about the operational side of IT: perhaps they operate applications themselves, but more probably, their organizations foster increased collaboration between Dev and Ops.
I started to become interested in the Ops side of software when I was still a consultant. When Spring Boot released the Actuator, I became excited. Via its convention-over-configuration nature, it was possible to add monitoring endpoints with just an additional dependency.
Since then, other frameworks have popped up. They also provide monitoring capabilities. In this article, I’d like to compare those frameworks concerning those capabilities.
