What is Scout APM?
Scout APM is an application performance monitoring solution that simplifies the troubleshooting process by enabling developers to discover and repair performance problems before clients ever notice them. Scout APM uses a developer-based UI with real-time alerting and intuitive tracing logic to identify bottlenecks precisely to the source code. This helps to greatly reduce time and effort needed to debug code and results in greater productivity and improved outcomes.
Scout APM facilitates the ability of developers to break down, discover, and prioritize performance issues such as N+1 queries, latent database queries, memory bloat, and more, and accomplishes these results at a fraction of the cost. Scout APM monitors Elixir, Node.js, PHP, Python and Ruby.
Scout APM is built by developers, for developers.
Scout APM Features
24/7 monitoring: Continuous, consistent monitoring proactively keeps users apprised of any performance deviations. Intuitive dashboards allow users to deep-dive into specific requests, paths, users, and endpoints attached to any performance slowdowns or bloating.
Quick and easy analysis: Should a slowdown occur or an increased response time be discovered, users have an easy to use drag-and-drop option to simply and quickly analyze every endpoint and dissect any anomalies. Scout APM will pinpoint the precise user or endpoint(s) responsible for the problem.
Intuitive trace logic: Users are able to quickly deep-dive and discover slow requests based on average responses or any/all requests.
Crossfilter powerhouse: Crossfilter is a Scout APM feature that allows users to quickly discover similarities with any/all slow requests back to the user or endpoint.
Easily discover bottlenecks: With Scout APM, users can easily pinpoint bottlenecks to the exact source code without any additional custom instrumentation. The solution uses a production-safe profiler to fully examine users' custom codes.
Developer tracing: Scout APM uses backtraces that are embedded with git blame output so developers of the code can be quickly identified and contacted to resolve issues and concerns immediately.
- Cost-effective: Scout APM is an open-source solution and offers many flexible pricing options to meet any size business, from small to enterprise level, including custom options. The cost per transaction decreases based on usage and works very efficiently with applications with very high throughput. Scout APM also offers a free trial period and encourages its usage so users can best understand and gauge the level of service needed and determine the best pricing plan to meet organizational needs. Scout APM is considered to be significantly cheaper than many other APM solutions in the marketplace today.
