David Tattersall has been in working in IT for over 30 years. Since co-founding Integral in 1998, he focused on company management, business development, and sales & marketing. Integral has become a leader in server monitoring and application performance monitoring (APM) solutions in the ColdFusion / Java segment. His flagship product – FusionReactor – www.fusion-reactor.com is used on over 25,000 production servers and has been purchased by over 5,000 customers.
Welcome back to the show I'm here with David has or co founder of integral and make us a fusion reactor and today we're talking about what's new in the freshly released fusion reactor seven with over 20 new features in it. And we're going to be doing a demo later in this which I'll will be talking through. So those of you are listening by audio will be able to get all the exciting stuff and welcome David. Thank you, Michael. Thanks for having me. So just for the people who haven't heard of it, what exactly is fusion reactor?

So fusion reactor is a lightweight application performance monitor, it supports all the major Java containers, Tomcat jetty web sphere, J boss, of course, while fly also cold fusion. So fusion reactors been around since 2005 now. And we are the number one monitoring. So solution for cold fusion.
So basically, if you have a cold fusion server that slow or crashing you, you want to have fusion reactor to help figure out what's going on

and prevented Absolutely, yeah, so there's two main areas that we focus on those performance related issues, or those some defects and the code bug in the code that you're trying to find out. And, as you rightly say, so the job of the monitor generally monitors do two things a measure, and they alert so measure is in terms of metrics. So things like web requests, JB bc activity, memory and CPU, all the metrics in and around there.

Because… perhaps you are responsible for a mission-critical or revenue-generating CF application that you don’t trust 100%, where implementing new features is a painful ad-hoc process with slow turnaround even for simple requests.
What if you have no contingency plan for a sudden developer departure or a server outage? Perhaps every time a new freelancer works on your site, something breaks. Or your application availability, security, and reliability are poor.
And if you are depending on ColdFusion for your job, then you can’t afford to let your CF development methods die on the vine.
You’re making a high-stakes bet that everything is going to be OK using the same old app creation ways in that one language — forever.
All it would take is for your fellow CF developer to quit or for your CIO to decide to leave the (falsely) perceived sinking ship of CFML and you could lose everything—your project, your hard-won CF skills, and possibly even your job.
Luckily, there are a number of simple, logical steps you can take now to protect yourself from these obvious risks.
