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.
Here is a quick summary of the articles 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.
