It’s a big change. We reworked the core of Hastic Server and
fixed deep problems in the execution model: hanging analytics and not-ending learning. Hastic Server is much more stable now.


Not-ending learning problem

Analytics could get stuck while learning / detecting. Now it always returns a result or throws an error.

Hanging analytics problem

Analytics could be “not alive” and don’t respond. It’s because of main execution thread could be blocked by learning and detection.
In this change we:

  • improved the way how data goes for detection during webhooks processing
  • made a separate thread for connectivity with node-server

Thanks @matthiasendler for helpful tips.

NOTE: don’t forget to re-install analytics’ dependencies if you’re build hastic-server from source. One of the key dependencies (pyzmq) needs update.

Hastic App / Hastic Server sync

Every change you make in the “Analytics” / “Webhook” tab is sent to hastic-server immediately. Then, server stores it in DB. So we don’t rely on “Save” button anymore.

Hastic metrics exporter for Prometheus

Hastic-server is a service that consumes a lot of resources and generates errors. We introduced some metrics you can monitor. It’s possible to export these metrics with the new exporting tool. We will write more about that in a future post.
