Visualize Talend Service Activity Monitoring using SAMvisual

The subscription version of Talend ESB comes with so called “Event Logging“.  Event Logging can give you valuable insight into the activity of your platform. Especially if you also use Service Activity Monitoring (In Short: SAM) – In combination with Elastic Search and Kibana. However, the feature set lacks some kind of “High Level Visualization”, showing the web service flows across multiple applications/services.

That’s why I created SAMvisual. Based on SAM data, it can generate an interactive graph (using the library ‘visjs‘), helping you to understand how your data flows (generating an interactive service inventory on-the-fly, e.g. visualizing orchestration and transformation cases).

The project is available on GitHub. At it’s given state, it’s just a proof of concept, which demonstrates the potential of such a tool.
