Using Spring Boot Actuator integrations with Pivotal Cloud Foundry 1.11

I recently wrote a tutorial demonstrating how to leverage the integrations between Spring Boot Actuator and Pivotal Cloud Foundry 1.11, posted here in the Pivotal content library: "TUTORIAL: Using Spring Boot Actuator Integrations With Pivotal Cloud Foundry 1.11").

Here is a quick summary of the article’s content:

Adding Actuator to your Spring Boot application deployed on Pivotal Cloud Foundry gets you the following production-ready features:

  • Health Check column & expanded information in Instances section

  • git commit id indicator, navigable to your git repo

  • Summary git info under Settings tab (also navigable to repo)

  • Runtime adjustment of logging levels, exposed via Actuator endpoints

  • Heap Dump+

  • View Trace+

  • View Threads, dump/download for further analysis+

+ New in Pivotal Cloud Foundry 1.11

TL;DR: Pivotal Cloud Foundry 1.11 provides some really nice integrations with Spring Boot Actuator-enabled applications/microservices, giving you vital tools for monitoring, introspection, and troubleshooting quickly and effectively.
