As part of AppDynamics’ Summer ‘14 release, we announced the general availability of our Node.js application performance management product module. What does this news mean for Node.js developers? Let’s take a closer look at how our best in class feature set enables developers to deliver better performing, higher quality Node.js apps regardless of framework.
Distributed transaction tracing for Node.js
Distributed transaction tracing allows customers to trace a transaction across a heterogeneous application environment.
Whether you use PHP, Node.js, Java, or .Net you can drill-down into distributed application calls and get the visibility you need to find the root cause.
Process wide-snapshots for Node.js
Process wide snapshots give developers call graph visibility of all executing functions within the Node.js process that executed to understand exactly what is happening when debugging problems.
Quickly hone in on the functions that are blocking the event loop and maxing out CPU in your Node.js applications.
Database / NoSQL visibility for Node.js
Developers can now correlate database performance to originating Node.js server business transaction performance metrics.
View how database performance correlates to application performance in real-time to understand the root-cause of application performance issues.
Data collectors for PHP
AppDynamics has added support for data collectors in PHP to capture useful data from HTTP requests and cookie data. This makes it really easy to query all transactions for a specific user.
With data collectors for PHP developers can track and correlate data from user interactions to get a more complete picture of the applications and it’s users. Understanding how users interact with the application gives developers the information they need to prioritize development efforts.
Real-time business metrics for PHP
AppDynamics has added support for real-time business metrics in PHP. This allows developers to quickly configure and view important business metrics in real-time like how revenue correlates with different application events like code release.
By automatically correlating application performance metrics with business metrics with no code changes required, developers get visibility into how the releases they work on positively affect the business.
