KOBIL Solutions

Overview​

You can use MasterController SDK with different KOBIL solutions. Except of the IDP functionality ('Single Sign On'), all solutions provide the same functionality for the app. The usage of the MasterController differs a little bit, this is described in this documentation and the GettingStartedApps. The used server installation defines the used solution for the app. KOBIL recommends to use KOBIL Shift Lite.

For all solutions we recommend to provide and use distributed tracing (e.g. using "Jaeger"), see the description of how to enable tracing in the application. Server Monitoring with various tools like "Grafana" is another useful thing that we recommend to set up.

So, a fully featured solution might look like this:

KOBIL IDP WebUI​

This is a Web UI where you can add and delete users, assign and manage roles and work on various other tasks.

Portal (aka Dashboard)​

This is a role based Web UI responsible for the management and monitoring tasks related to a each specific tenant. For example you can

Server Monitoring​

Here, a service regularly observes the activity of the services, to detect and alarm if problems arise such as

  • a service in not available any more
  • a service performance is too slow.

Our standard installation uses the following services:

  • "Loki"​ to store service logs​
  • "Prometheus" to receive service statistics
  • "Grafana" for the web based visualization of the current state.

Distributed Tracing​

This is a intended to collect and visualize distributed traces of different client-side apps and the server-side services. Data is stored e.g. in a "Jaeger" installation and visualized e.g. with a "Grafana" installation. The data is used to

  • visualize how User requests flow across services
  • rapidly perform deep root cause analysis
  • analyze latency across a distributed set of services.
