Monitoring NServiceBus solutions: Demo

The best way to get started with the monitoring features in the Particular Service Platform is to try them out on ServicePulse with a real system. This downloadable sample contains all of the necessary parts of the platform, already configured and ready to run. It also includes 4 sample endpoints that all communicate by exchanging messages over the SQL Transport.

System requirements

In order to run the demo your system needs to meet the following requirements:

  • Windows 8 or higher
  • LocalDB (installed automatically during demo, if needed and allowed) or SQL Server 2012 and higher to use existing database
  • .NET Framework 4.6.1 and higher

Running the sample

Once you have downloaded and extracted the zip package, open the extracted folder and double-click on run.bat.

Choose option 2 (uses a LocalDB instance, removed during demo shutdown) to get started quickly. To use an existing SQL Server instance instead, see the detailed setup instructions.

Once everything is running, you will have 4 endpoints which are configured like this:

By default, the ClientUI endpoint sends a steady stream of 1 PlaceOrder messages every second.

The endpoints are also configured to send monitoring data to the Particular Software Platform which you can see in ServicePulse.
