The NGINX Modern Apps Reference Architecture has been tested for use in local environments with limited resources, such as workstations. We discuss the effect of memory and CPU constraints, and provide instructions for deploying MARA on MicroK8s from Canonical.
We've completed the first phase of adding observability to the NGINX Modern Apps Reference Architecture (MARA). Here's how and why we chose OpenTelemetry as our base solution, and how we integrated it and other solutions to implement seven aspects of observability.
The built-in live activity monitoring dashboard tracks NGINX Plus metrics in real time, and can get additional insight from visualizations of performance over time. In this demo and blog we show how to generate time-series graphs of NGINX Plus metrics using Prometheus and Grafana.
