Full Description

Standalone Hystrix Dashboard




Standalone hystrix dashboard that can be started using a single fatJar and is very lightweight and fast!

Features

  • Extremely fast startup (About half a sec)
  • Extremely lightweight, the fat jar is around 5 MBs
  • Easy to start, just run the JAR
  • Doesn't need a servlet container
  • Non Blocking
  • Implemented with Vert.x
  • Compression enable (Saves alot of bandwidth)
  • Docker Image to easily deploy

Another hystrix-dashboards web app?

It's the same hystrix-dashboard app as the Netflix one,
that can be found here netflix-hystrix-dashboard,
the only difference is that this one isn't servlet based,
so doesn't need a servlet container, nor any other configuration,
it's just a single jar that you can run and you are read to start monitoring you hystrix enabled services.

Motivations

When i first tried hystrix and hystrix-dashboard, i had some problems testing the examples, not only me but other people had problems too, i think that hystrix-dashboard is soo awesome that shouldn't take more than a single file run to be able to use it, so i built this little adaptation to provide that, and help people that want to get started using hystrix and it's modules, and help advanced users that just need to run a dashboard more easily.
