Preface

Red Hat Fuse provides two enterprise monitoring tools for viewing and managing Fuse integrations:

  • The Fuse Console is a web-based console that you access from a browser to monitor and manage a running Fuse container. The Fuse Console is based on Hawtio open source software (http://hawt.io/).
  • Prometheus (https://prometheus.io/docs/introduction/overview/) stores system and integration-level metrics for Fuse distributions. You can use a graphical analytics interface, such as Grafana, to view and analyze the stored historical data.

The audience for this guide is Red Hat Fuse administrators. This guide assumes that you are familiar with the Red Hat Fuse platform, Apache Camel, and the processing requirements for your organization.

When you deploy a Fuse application, you can use both the Fuse Console (Hawtio) and Prometheus to monitor and interact with Red Hat Fuse integrations.

Fuse Console

The Fuse Console provides a central interface to examine and manage the details of one or more deployed Fuse containers. You can also monitor Red Hat Fuse and system resources, perform updates, and start or stop services.

The Fuse Console is available when you install Red Hat Fuse standalone or use Fuse on OpenShift. The integrations that you can view and manage in the Fuse Console depend on the plugins that are running. Possible plugins include:

  • Camel
  • JMX
  • Spring Boot
  • OSGI
  • Runtime
  • Logs

The Fuse Console is a web-based console. For a list of supported browsers, go to https://access.redhat.com/articles/310603.

Prometheus

Prometheus is container-native software built for storing historical data and for monitoring large, scalable systems of which Fuse on OpenShift is a component. It gathers data over an extended time, rather than just for the currently running session.
