Creating some Pivotal Cloud Foundry (PCF) PHD services

After installing PHD add on for Pivotal Cloud Foundry 1.1 I quickly created some development services for PHD using the CLI as shown below.

Pivotal Greenplum GPLOAD with multiple CSV files

I recently needed to setup a cron script which loaded CSV files from a directory into Greenplum every 2 minutes. Once loaded the files are moved onto Hadoop for archive purposes. The config below shows how to use GPLOAD data load utility which utilises GPFDIST.

1. Create a load table. In this example the data is then moved to the FACT table once the load is complete
drop table rtiadmin.rtitrans_etl4;

CREATE TABLE rtiadmin.rtitrans_etl4 (more...)

Pivotal Cloud Foundry using App Direct "newrelic" Monitoring Service

PCF AWS marketplace provides app direct services and in this example I am going to use the "newrelic" monitoring service to monitor my spring based java application. It's really this simple.

1. Create a service as shown below.

[Tue Mar 04 17:19:34 papicella@:~/cfapps/spring-travel ] $ cf create-service newrelic standard dev-newrelic

2. Create a manifest.yml for my spring application which uses the new relic service above.

- name: pas-springtravel 
  memory: 1024M

IntelliJ IDEA version 13 now includes CloudFoundry Connection

Just installed IntelliJ IDEA version 13 and found that it now includes a CloudFoundry connection type. You define it under IDE settings as shown below.

Will test deploying to the publicly hosted AWS Cloud Foundry using this connection at some stage.
