ColdFusion Insights For My Online Fusion Reactor Alert Viewer

By Ben Nadel on
Tags: ColdFusion, Work

A few weeks ago, I posted about an online HTML and JavaScript viewer that I created in order to more easily consume my Fusion Reactor server alerts. This morning, I've made a few updates to the viewer that provide a bit more insight into the ColdFusion aspects of the Fusion Reactor data.

Project: View the Fusion Reactor Alert project on my GitHub account.

First, I've added an "Insight" column to the datagrid of running requests that will quickly denote which requests have stack-trace data items that contains explicit references to .CFC or .CFM ColdFusion template:

Then, within the selected request modal window, I'm extracting and replicating the ColdFusion specific stack-trace items at the top:

This way, you can quickly see which requests have ColdFusion data and then quickly see which ColdFusion templates have been invoked.

I've also added request filtering, but do not have a screenshot for this.

I've been using this Fusion Reactor Alert viewer (directly on GitHub) for about a week and I have to say that I'm really enjoying it. I used to manually scan through the Fusion Reactor email content, matching Thread IDs to stack-traces, trying to get a picture of what was going on. But, it was difficult, at best. This online viewer makes it so much easier!
