Blackfire.io vs Kadira: What are the differences?
Blackfire.io: Blackfire Profiler automatically instruments your code to gather data about consumed server resources like memory, CPU time, and I/O. Blackfire achieves a new level of accuracy by aggregating several profile samples and getting rid of non relevant data. Get even deeper and review the interactions with your entire stack (SQL database engines, cache servers, ...); Kadira: Performance Monitoring for Meteor. See what’s going on with your app with different performance metrics and traces. Kadira tracks all your client and server errors automatically. You can profile your app in production or locally with Kadira and analyze it using an easy-to-use CPU analyzer.
Blackfire.io and Kadira belong to "Performance Monitoring" category of the tech stack.
Some of the features offered by Blackfire.io are:
