Petabridge.Cmd and Akka.Monitoring Updated to Support Akka.NET v1.3.1

Petabridge.Cmd Updates to Support .NET Core and .NET Standard

Since the recent Akka.NET v1.3.0 release we’ve been working furiously to upgrade all of our plugins and other tools that are heavily used by the Akka.NET community in order to ensure that you can get everything you need to go into production with confidence.

Today we’re putting out a quick update to make everyone aware of the following updates:

  1. Petabridge.Cmd v0.3.0 and v0.3.1 have been released and now fully supports Akka.NET v1.3.1 as well as .NET Core. As per Petabridge.Cmd’s v0.3.0 release notes, we’ve broken wire compatibility between all previous versions of pbm and Petabridge.Cmd.Host prior to v0.3.0. We did this in order to guarantee that a single pbm client could communicate seamlessly with both .NET Core and .NET 4.* applications. Please make sure you upgrade your pbm clients along with your hosts when you upgrade.
  2. Akka.Monitoring v0.7.0, our open source monitoring extension for Akka.NET applications, is now available and supports Akka.NET v1.3.1. At the moment, however, it does not support .NET Standard - largely due to its dependence on PerformanceCounters and other drivers that do not yet support .NET Standard.

Over the next few months we’re going to be reworking the monitoring story around Akka.NET and Akka.Cluster in order to provide detailed, easy-to-use actor and cluster monitoring instrumentation that works on both .NET Core and .NET 4.5. This is our current top priority and we’ll be providing users on our mailing list with updates once we have something ready to show.

Please let us know in the comments if you have any questions or concerns!
