Overview of this book

Blockchain and Hyperledger technologies are hot topics today. Hyperledger Fabric and Hyperledger Composer are open source projects that help organizations create private, permissioned blockchain networks. These find application in finance, banking, supply chain, and IoT among several other sectors. This book will be an easy reference to explore and build blockchain networks using Hyperledger technologies. The book starts by outlining the evolution of blockchain, including an overview of relevant blockchain technologies. You will learn how to configure Hyperledger Fabric and become familiar with its architectural components. Using these components, you will learn to build private blockchain networks, along with the applications that connect to them. Starting from principles first, you’ll learn to design and launch a network, implement smart contracts in chaincode and much more. By the end of this book, you will be able to build and deploy your own decentralized applications, handling the key pain points encountered in the blockchain life cycle.

System monitoring and performance

You have now built your application and instituted various processes and mechanisms in anticipation of changes over its lifetime. An additional, but no less essential, process that you must have in place and carry out from time to time is monitoring and performance measurement. Any production application you build for real-world users and institutions must meet certain performance goals to be useful to its users, and by implication, the application's stakeholders. Therefore, understanding how your application performs and trying to improve its performance is a key maintenance task; any dereliction in this task may result in your application having a short shelf life.

The art (and science) of system performance measurement and analytics is a broad and extensive set of topics, and it is not our intention to cover these topics deeply or exhaustively in this book. To obtain such a coverage, the interested reader is encouraged to read other canonical texts on...
