SkyWalking

21 Mar 2018

Skywalking is an APM (application performance monitor), especially for
microservice, Cloud Native and container-based architecture systems. Also
known as a distributed tracing system. It provides an automatic way to
instrument applications: no need to change any of the source code of the
target application; and an collector with an very high efficiency streaming
module.

SkyWalking has been incubating since 2017-12-08.

Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:

  1. IP clearance.
  3. First ASF release. (SkyWalking 5.0)
  3. Further ASF culture and processes.
  4. 5.x releases are stable for product, and have an open end user case, at least.

Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
aware of?

 Looking for input on how to develop/release our plugins that rely on GPL libraries,
is making those plugins optional good enough?


How has the community developed since the last report?

 Improved understanding of the release process way of the Apache. And
prepare for the first release.

 A C# agent proposed by .NET community has started.
After it release, will make SkyWalking can support multi languages.
Some discussions about golang and Nodejs server are on going.


How has the project developed since the last report?

Code wise the project has good momentum.
There has been ~44 pull requests opened and accepted, and 103 commits,
by 7 contributors in the last month.


How would you assess the podling's maturity?
Please feel free to add your own commentary.

 Some GPL compile-time library dependencies were removed from the default
maven reactor. Related plugin components to the project can still be built
if the GPL dependencies are manually downloaded.


How has the community developed since the last report?

 Added a number of established committers to the PPMC,
as it the norm in the Incubator.

 Improved understanding of usage of the Apache trademark, it use with
the project, and avoiding ASF explicit announcements during incubation.

 Community reaches out to press@apache.org whenever uncertain.


How has the project developed since the last report?

The project website has been uploaded to its new location at
 http://skywalking.incubator.apache.org/

Code wise the project has good momentum.
There has been ~40 pull requests opened and accepted, and 191 commits,
in the last month.
