Five Steps to MeteorJS Monitoring By Stefan Thies Meteor is a full-stack JavaScript platform for developing modern web and mobile applications. It includes developer tools, websockets, MongoDB integration, and a package manager.  Atmosphere.js is the Meteor package manager.  Unfortunately, it doesn’t list many Meteor monitoring solutions. Luckily, thanks to the Meteor npm integration, it is possible to use npm packages for monitoring Meteor apps with npm based monitoring solutions, such as SPM for Node.js monitoring.  SPM for Node.js collects key Node.js metrics such as Event Lo...
