In my previous blog, I discussed the framework we have built for testing large scale machine log data. In this post, I will share results of our test. Every test run with varying server clusters was executed through our automation framework, and therefore had minimal effort on our side except clicking a button after deciding the number of servers we need.

The scalability of our platform is broadly dependent on 2 things:

While we run must-run performance tests for every release to make sure that the new features being added does not impact the performance of our platform, we (Engineering @ Glassbeam) wanted the ability to run large scale tests periodically too. However, running large scale performance tests is a time consuming and expensive affair. Such tests require spinning up tens of machines which can take days to setup and run the tests.

In modern healthcare, medical imaging devices such as X-ray, Computed Tomography(CT), Ultrasound, and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) devices play a critical role. These devices allow healthcare professionals to examine the patient and determine the root cause of their symptoms. Imaging devices allow healthcare providers to develop the right treatment plan for their patients.

The need to explain why one has to consider mining their logs is no longer relevant with so many advantages of log analytics. If you are still thinking whether mining your machine logs is important, read these two documents from Harbor Research: The Internet of Things, Machines and Data Analyticsor Product Analytics & Intelligence or just google and you will get compelling reasons.

Last week we announced our expanded solution for healthcare industry by including mobile MRI and CT Scanners in our CLEAN™ blueprint (Clinical Engineering Analytics). What this means is that Glassbeam solution can now address a major part of projected $13B market in this segment by 2020.

With over 7,000 hospitals in the country, there are still many rural areas that have only small hospital facilities which service proportionately small communities.

Creating DSL with Antlr4 and Scala

Domain specific languages help a lot in improving developer productivity. First thing which you need while creating a DSL is a parser which can takes a piece of text and transforms it in structured format (like Abstract Syntax Tree) so that your program can understand and do something useful with it. DSL tends to stay for years so while choosing a tool for creating parser for you DSL you need to make sure that it’s easy to maintain and evolve the language.
