Description

What is Skylight?

Skylight is a smart profiler for your Rails apps that visualizes request performance across all of your servers.

What is Scout?

Scout is application monitoring that points developers right to the source of problems: N+1 database queries, memory bloat, performance trends, and more. Scout eliminates much of the investigation part when performance woes occur.

What is Boundary?

Monitor it all: web servers, load balancers, application back-ends, big data clusters, queues, caching nodes, or databases. Boundary provides insights no matter what stack you use, whether you deploy in the cloud or your data center.
