SeeFusion has been around for a while now, but I recently got the chance to take it for a spin, and wanted to share my thoughts. SeeFusion is a utility that lets you peak under the CF hood, allowing you to see lots of what’s going on, and much of it in real time. I’ve previously mentioned that this type of monitoring is planned for ColdFusion “Scorpio”, but SeeFusion is available right now, and I’d expect that even once we ship “Scorpio” serious ColdFusion developers will probably want both (hey, the more info the better).
SeeFusion tracks three types of requests; currently running requests (real-time), recently completed requests, and long running requests. It also features a JDBC wrapper that makes it possible to inspect detailed query related information, debug output, a dashboard for monitoring multiple servers at once, and much more. Lots of details, screenshots, and a live demo are all available online.
This is an incredibly impressive utility, and one that will be immensely useful to all ColdFusion developers. And with licenses starting at $150, SeeFusion could pay for itself the first time you use it. Check it out!
