Developing with KiekerΒΆ

Kieker provides a set of tools to monitor software and analyze its behavior and its interactions with others. However, sometimes it might be helpful to compose your own analysis or a Kieker probe or a Kieker stage (filter) may not provide the necessary features you have in mind. In that case, you can extend Kieker.

In this section we discuss how to develop your own analyses with Kieker and embed them in tools and services, as well as, extend Kieker where necessary. We will reference architecture documentation and JavaDoc when needed. As this is a living software project, there might be a discrepancy between API documentation, architecture description and the documentation in this section. In that case, always refer to the API, as it is generated from the source code.
