I’m sure many of us have heard at least once about Amazon Web Services. AWS is a cloud service provider that provides on-demand cloud infrastructure services to individuals, companies and governments. They provide a wide range of web services like computational power, storage, databases, content delivery and many more. One of their products is called DynamoDB. It is a fully managed NoSQL database that provides data persistence for applications that need it. You can think of it as a key value store with automatic backups and high availability. The DynamoDB engine handles the scaling and replication of your database automatically. However, there are some limitations and drawbacks of using DynamoDB.
The main concern is that it’s not very flexible if you want to implement custom logic. Because of that, you can’t use complex queries or apply business rules. If you want to change anything in DynamoDB, you need to go through a difficult process. Another limitation is that you don’t have access to all the information about the database. You can get only those pieces of information that are exposed by the API. So if you want to get any other piece of information, then you need to write code yourself. And finally, there isn’t any built-in mechanism to manage data integrity. If you want to check if a specific attribute is valid, then you need to write logic again. For example, if you have a Person entity with an attribute name that should be a string, then you need to write code that checks if the value assigned to the attribute is a string. So, there are many drawbacks when using DynamoDB.
To address these concerns and make using DynamoDB easier, we created OnceHub (https://www.oncehub.com. OnceHub is a serverless platform for managing data in DynamoDB. We started with simple features like tracking modifications made to data in DynamoDB and providing an audit log of all changes made to data in DynamoDB over time. But then we added more and more features so that users can simplify using DynamoDB even further without worrying about writing code or maintaining complex systems. Currently we support many features like:
Manage multiple environments (dev, qa, staging, prod)
Tracking all modifications made to data over time
Scheduled jobs to periodically make modifications on a specified attribute
Data validation using our rule engine
Built-in support for scheduled jobs (cron jobs. and event triggers such as S3 events, SQS messages and SNS messages
Ability to create new attributes based on existing ones or from native functions (for example converting strings to dates)
Integration between Pingdom (https://www.pingdom.com. and OnceHub was done in two steps. we first created a OnceHub integration for Pingdom and then we implemented it in OnceHub platform. To create an integration for Pingdom we used their API documentation (https://docs.pingdom.com/presentation/platform/api. This process was mainly focused on making requests and parsing response format and structure. For example, we needed to parse JSON array responses into Java objects and vice versa (Java objects into JSON array. So we implemented parsing logic using Jackson (http://wiki.fasterxml.com/JacksonHome. Then we created a Java library based on this (https://github.com/oncetask/OnceHub-Pingdom. The library allows accessing all Pingdom API endpoints via HTTP requests and gives access to all Pingdom APIs as Java classes so that you can easily call them from your code without dealing with XML or JSON or manually parsing them into Java objects. After creating the integration, we integrated it into OnceHub platform and made it available for everyone to use in production environments. Using our integration you can easily integrate Pingdom monitoring capabilities into your application by just adding some lines of code! This integration will automatically start monitoring your application after it starts, then Pingdom will send alerts about application failures or downtime if your application goes down or becomes unresponsive due to some issues or failures. You can also use our Pingdom integration to trigger custom events in Pingdom after they happen within your application such as connecting to or disconnecting from a database or receiving some data from an external system via HTTP request or receiving an email message from a mail server etc. You can read more about this feature in our blog. https://www.oncehub.com/blog/post/integrating-pingdom-with-oncetask-using-aws-dynamodb-and-scheduled-jobs/
We believe that the best way to understand how useful our integration is is to show some real-life examples of how people can use it in practice! In the fplowing section I will show two examples that show how powerful both OnceHub and Pingdom are when integrated together! In the first example I will show how easy it is to integrate Pingdom monitoring capabilities into your application using our OnceHub integration! In the second example I will show how easy it is to monitor your application after it starts! First Example. Integrating Pingdom Monitoring Capabilities into Your Application Nowadays most of the applications need monitoring because there are always unexpected things that can happen during development or operations stages! Some examples for unexpected things are. Connecting to or disconnecting from a database server; Receiving some data from an external system via HTTP request; Receiving an email message from a mail server; Receiving an SMS message from a mobile phone network; Receiving an instant message from an instant messaging server; Receiving binary data from another application; Receiving some information from other sensors etc. Let’s say that our company develops an app for ordering pizza online with many amazing features like. Customers can order pizza online from their mobile phones using Android / iOS app or website; Customers can pay for their pizzas online by credit card or PayPal account; Customers can choose different types of pizzas from various toppings; Customers can customize their pizzas by selecting different types of cheese, sauce, crust etc.; Customers can view delivery status of their pizzas; Customers can rate their pizzas and leave reviews; Customers can see prices for different types of pizzas; Customers can download PDF menu with prices and descriptions; Customers can add friends into their account using Facebook connect; Customers can see other customers’ reviews on the website; Customers can see coupons for buying pizzas on website; Customers can view delivery zones on the map; Management team can view orders placed so far for each customer; Management team can view monthly sales report for each type of pizza; Management team can view number of orders for each country; Management team can see payments details for each order etc. Then one day our management team receives an email from one big customer saying that she won’t use our company’s app anymore because of bad performance! Our management team immediately calls our developers asking what happened! Developers say something about poor performance because of large number of orders! So management team asks developers whether they checked whether app is working properly or not! Developers say that they ran load tests on application locally on their machines but nothing went wrong! Management team says something like “If application is working properly on developer’s machine then why it won’t work properly on my device!?” So management team asks developers to find out what happened! 🙂 Of course, our developers do their best and they spend several hours trying to find out what happened! Developers finally figure out that there are many more customers than before using our company’s app! Management team asks developers why they didn’t know about this fact before? Developers say something like “Well, we didn’t know because there wasn’t any monitoring top installed!” Management team looks at developers like they are stupid! :D Management team says something like “Well, if you didn’t install any monitoring top then how could you know anything?!! From now on you should always install good monitoring top like Pingdom so that you would know everything about application health!” So management team sends developers back home early so they could install Pingdom monitoring top! :D When developers come next morning they see this message on their monitors. “Pingdom installation failed! Please contact management team immediately!!!” …… Developers ring management team who tells them. “We tried installing Pingdom but we couldn’t do it! We fplowed installation instructions but nothing worked! Please try installing again! If you won’t succeed then write us back what happened and how you tried installing Ping
