An additional batch of closed beta invitations have just been sent out. We're getting closer and closer to release date, and are very excited! If you'd like to be a part of the closed beta, make sure to subscribe to the release notification list....

The Snapt framework comes with an advanced cron handler, meaning on installation all you need to do is add that the cronjob handler will run every minute in cron and we'll decide when to run our reporting, logging, and other tasks automatically.To do that, we had to write a more sophisticated cron - with abilities like "once off" or temporary tasks, that after running successfully are removed. We've also introduced load limits and retries - so a task can be...

Snapt is a powerful user interface to powerful open source software, but, things go wrong with any software and when it does one of the primary functions of Snapt is to help diagnose and repair the problems. Whether checking its own setup, or making sure your critical load balancer is up and running Snapt will automatically alert you of problems, and comes with a full framework status check to help you diagnose any issues, as shown below.We aim to...

Having a hardware failure in a high availability environment is not an option, and finding a solution to backup whatever you are using can be difficult. Restoring those backups can be even harder.Snapt comes free with an optional backup plugin that will save any Snapt configurations, and the configurations for any Snapt modules you have. In the screenshot below, you can see we automatically take a daily backup of our Snapt installation as well as our HAProxy config file.The files...

We're happy to announce that next week we will be giving our first external beta tester a full version of the Snapt Framework and Snapt HAProxy products. Soon after that we will ramp up our beta testing to other interested parties; if you want to be a part of it please feel free to contact us through the website and we will get back to you. Alternatively, you can subscribe to our release list to be notified when it is...

It is critical to be able to see exactly what is going on at any point in time in a high availability environment, and one of the ways Snapt presents this data for HAProxy is with live graphing. This allows you to sit back and watch the throughput and the sessions your HAProxy groups are doing - as it happens!Above is an example of the live traffic to our group "HTTP-Farm". When monitoring or diagnosing a problem a live graph...

Snapt has been built from the ground up with translation in mind, and we intend to support many languages. Naturally, our first release only officially supports English but already comes with German menus as a beta example.Selecting a language is very easy as you can see above, and is done in the initial Snapt Setup. Any strings that are available in the language you choose are then displayed using that language, and any missing strings are displayed in English,...

Snapt aims to make performing routine tasks as simple as possible and adding groups and servers to your HAProxy setup might just be one of them.Groups are a simplified way of looking at the "listening" parameters in HAProxy and within each group you would find the servers that you are load balancing. The process of adding these groups and servers is made easy by using a step based approach. The first thing to do would be configuring the parameters...

One of the features packaged in the Snapt Framework is the "Interception Manager". This provides plugins to the framework such as Snapt Squid or Snapt HAProxy to transparently intercept traffic.In the Squid example, it makes it easy to pick up HTTP (port 80) traffic and cache it without interfering with user configuration, or with HAProxy you can roll out load balancing without changing IP addresses and the like. Typically, this can get confusing and complicated - so we introduced...
