    Hi Ardi & Andi,

     is this Sensor Pack still current ? Compatible with dT 6.x and Coldfusion 10/11 ?

      Hi Matthias

      I am not aware of any updates to this Sensor Pack. So - I guess it is still valid but I am not sure if it covers changes to the latest versions of ColdFusion. This pack was created about 2 years ago - so - newer versions of ColdFusion may have some new methods that would be interesting that you dont get with sensors -> BUT: nowadays we have Auto Sensors - so - you should at least be good to catch long running methods.

      There is also some other material on the community if you search for ColdFusion, e.g: Experience with ColdFusion 9

    Hi, guys.

    The sensor packs are getting information about methods, but there's no dashboards or metrics that we could represent. Any of you know a couple of metrics that could be useful to have in a CF deployment?

    All the best
