Sending RHQ Alerts over XMPP

Rafael has created a very cool server plugin to allow RHQ to send alerts to his Google account over XMPP. Not only that, but he was able to use that same XMPP channel to send commands to the RHQ Server, like another kind of CLI.

Watch his demo
to see how it works. Very awesome!

This is exactly the kind of innovation we envisioned the community being able to do via the server plugins, as I mentioned in my earlier blog entry titled "RHQ Server Plugins - Innovation Made Easy"

Nice job, Rafael!

  1. This is really cool. Just as an excercise I thought I'd see what it'd take to make this plugin use the fullblown CLI session instead of "home-grown" query language.

    It took 2 bugfixes in the RHQ code, but I finally got there :)

    Checkout and build it against the latest RHQ (built from source code, not the latest released bits).

    I'll write a standalone blogpost and maybe a video, too.
