On GitHub I just published a workshop on how monitoring on a MS SQL Server 2019 with Telegraf, InfluxDB and Grafana works.
In the year 2003 I had used this tablet in the university. I got the scripts as PDF and could make my notes. Digitization was not even a concept. With my bachelor thesis I was working on RFID. Today you pay with it at the cash desk. Wow, those were still times.
I had used the Tablet/Notebook until 2010, when the iPad came out.
The device still runs like an old VW Beetle 😉
The new Surface devices from Microsoft are really interesting. Only from the video I could see that the devices are even limited expandable. I think that’s even good.
My experiments with microservices are going into the second round. It’s not finished yet, but I’m more satisfied with it than with the previous version.
On GitHub I published a small Spring Batch project. Here the data are transferred from database a to database b. It is not finished yet, because I have to integrate JUnit 5 and Mockito.
Meanwhile I got a Raspberry PI 4 and built a new NAS system. Here I installed a Debian Buster Lite and connected a Seagate 5TB 2.5″ hard disk. (Picture shows a WD HDD as test system) With Samba I also have access from a Windows computer. The speed is very good. I can transfer about 75MB/s over the network. So far the heat development is eye-catching and is monitored it.
Today I migrated all my Microsoft SQL Server databases from Windows to Linux. There were no problems.
The SQL Server runs on Windows 10 previously and the half-yearly updates annoyed me and so I switched to Linux. It’s great how nice and stable the whole thing works.
I am currently testing an online portal for moderation. Maybe I can use it for a project in June. It is Six Steps. I am curious.
In my Docker experience it is sometimes necessary that I also need Docker Compose. With this installation guide I get everything.
