Welcome to Radio Liferay, a peek into what is going on in Liferay from the people doing it themselves.
Radio Liferay Episode 58: Jorge Ferrer continued
Two episodes (or an eternity) ago, I spoke to Jorge Ferrer, Liferay's VP of Engineering. We didn't have enough time to finish the conversation, so we continued a while after - and then I buried the recording /o\. Anyway, apart from it being still from "before the release of the current version", it's still relevant stuff, I feel bad about missing to post it. Check for yourself - here it finally is.
We're talking about these (and more) topics
- Microservices vs Monoliths
- Buzzword or breeze of fresh air?
- DHH The Majestic Monolith
- Approach this technology option like any other
- If you can't build a monolith, you are probably getting an even bigger mess if you approach microservices
- Milen's presentation: Microservices and Modularity or the difference between treatment and cure (or on youtube)
- Shortly before the release many modules were moved around and renamed. We talk about the reasons and what this meant for the translations
- What's the meaning of "Feature-Complete"?
- A lot of Feedback starts to come in during the Beta Cycle
- Nitpicking on the Beta Criteria: JBoss and Upgrade Routines
- Lookahead on the next episode on Performance Tuning
- Releaseplans (of course, I could have retrofitted an exact release date...)
- What's it like to be hired into Liferay Engineering?
- office envy
- shared spaces, decoration, own desks, separate working environments, inspiration, agora
- Is it forbidden to write Javadoc?

Radio Liferay Episode 43: Brett Swaim on Application Performance Monitoring
I'm talking with Brett Swaim, Principal Consultant at Liferay US, on application performance monitoring, horror stories and things to avoid. Brett is dealing with a lot of customers. He's one of Liferay's go-to resources for performance tuning and monitoring. Brett had a presentation on DevOps Best Practices with Liferay, Logstash, Kibana, Elasticsearch, and New Relic at Devcon (among other symposiums and events). If you missed it or just want the audio summary (both were my motivations to talk to him), we're talking about his experience, using one of the projects (an unnamed one) as an example.
We talked about
- Application Lifecycle and Performance monitoring, New Relic (used as a sample here), Compuware , AppDynamics. Or check the Gartner Quadrant
- If you can't host in the cloud, you can use the same strategies that Brett is talking about with on-premise solutions
- How do you know your application is slow?
- ELK-Stack (Elasticsearch, Logstash and Kibana)
- adding page load times to Apache Logs
- It matters where you measure from: Internal network, external network.
- Default configuration of Liferay - memory, garbage collection and other JVM settings
- You can have too much memory in your JVM
- Liferay's Whitepapers have starting points, you shouldn't use them as your final settings.
- ...and you'll actually need to measure for yourself in order to find your number...
- CDN setup and its results on high volume site
- Be proactive. You'll find bottlenecks before your users do.
