Camunda Cloud is the first BPMN-based workflow technology that’s been engineered specifically for the cloud and offered as an on-demand cloud service. It was a major milestone for our company. It was especially exciting for us here in the Zeebe community because Zeebe and Operate sit at the core of the product.

Performance Profiling Zeebe

by Josh Wulf and Klaus Nji on Dec 22 2019 in Benchmarks Performance .

We frequently get questions about Zeebe’s performance. The answer to any performance question is easy: “It depends”. In this post, Zeebe Developer Advocate Josh Wulf and Zeebe Community member Klaus Nji talk about what it depends on, and how you can get performance benchmarks that answer the question that you actually want to answer: “Can Zeebe do what I need it to do, and how do I need to configure it to do that?

Going to Zero-Scale Zeebe on Camunda Cloud with Cloudflare Workers

by Josh Wulf on Dec 3 2019 in Cloud Slack Use cases .

I get questions about running Zeebe at “zero-scale”. That means workers that consume no resources when there are no tasks to perform. The Zeebe service on Camunda Cloud includes a generic HTTP-Worker that can be used to achieve this. The HTTP-Worker polls for jobs of type “Camunda-HTTP”, and then invokes a REST endpoint based on the HTTP verb and URL set in the task headers. If you are not on Camunda Cloud you can use zeebe-http-worker, or just write your own. Read more…

Operational Monitoring: Zeebe Cloud Canary

by Josh Wulf on Nov 3 2019 in Use Cases .

Designing a resilient system means planning for, and alerting on various failure states. The Zeebe Cloud Canary npm package adds alerting to your Node.js Zeebe applications. There are a few things that can go wrong in a Zeebe system that you definitely want to surface operationally. Your client applications might exception and halt. The broker might fail - whether due to a hardware failure or some edge-case condition that puts it in an infinite restart loop while recovering (it could be memory constrained, for example, and rescheduled by K8s before it can recover its state on boot up).
