Monitoring Applications with Frequent Code Changes
What do you with your application monitoring solution when new code is deployed multiple times a week, or multiple times a day? What do you do when a developer is looking at the traces and asks “Dude, where is my code?”
Do you sit with the developers daily to see what instrumentation you’ll need to add so you can see the new code? Do you start using your Dev/QA solution in production or switch to developer mode in production to see what happened and take the risk of bringing a system down? Or maybe you just accept having blind-spots in your application monitoring and wait for it to crash again and again to see what instrumentation you need to add? If you answered “yes” to one of these options, we have a better option for you: Try SteelCentral AppInternals.
Fixing application performance issues can be very difficult! Applications can have millions of lines of code and include user code, libraries from other teams and in many cases 3rd party packages. Searching for issues can be very time-consuming and frustrating. Monitoring or tracing these applications is sometimes a balance between trying to see as much data as possible and trying not to bring your entire system down!
Different solutions try to solve these problems in many ways. Some solutions just concentrate on Production or Dev/QA. While other solutions have one product for monitoring production and another product for monitoring Dev/QA. Some solutions even have a Developer mode that is used for Dev/QA and a different mode that is used for production that give you less visibility into your code unless you sit with a developer and understand what additional instrumentation is needed. But do any of these options make sense?
SteelCentral AppInternals offers a superior approach! You can have parity between Dev, QA and Production. You can monitor and trace your application without having to use different products or different modes for monitoring in your QA environment or Production. SteelCentral AppInternals automatically discovers your code changes and lets you immediately analyze the new code behavior.
Stop spending you and your developers’ valuable time, trying to understand what to instrument whenever your code changes. Don’t risk using Dev/QA products or using Developer mode in production. Running your application with blind-spots and waiting for it to crash is never a good option.
