Riemann is a product that helps you answer the important questions in life. Like whether your site is up or whether you are taking subscriptions. As a complex event processing piece of middleware for handling large volumes of metrics it might not be as suitable if your important questions are things like what happens after we die or how can we prevent desertification.
In my talk I’m going to look at what “complex event processing” means in practical terms and why it is a good idea to feed all the metrics you have into Riemann.t’ll cover the basic introduction to the software and take you through writing your first stream processor, taking a look under the hood at how Riemann works along the way. I’ll then be talking about how we’ve used Riemann in production and why its a good example of selling Clojure by creating great products.
