Playing with Boundary’s Application Monitors

Boundary offered free Rasberry Pis for testing their Application Monitors.

The Boudanry’s service provides monitors for network traffic. It’s really handy service, if you have a big service with  10+ servers at production, and you’re wondering where the bottlenecks are. Then the monitoring service could save you a lot of trouble. You can instantly see that “Machine X” has big latency, so it hast to be the bottleneck for the service, and it should be fixed. I really like statistics, so I might still continue using these with some of my servers, even while I don’t have that much network traffic.
