We were looking for application performance management solution (APM) for our .net. We were using New Relic's free version but it wasn't cutting it and we were missing some capabilities. Stackify's solution is great and as a bonus we got their log management and exception aggregation tools that are integrated with the APM. Plus the team at Stackify was very helpful
Stackify does a great job at providing lots of useful information without it becoming overwhelming. All of the features are well thought out and it has proven very helpful at diagnosing and preventing bugs in our application.
Free Heroku add-on. Not particularly useful for us. Rails profilers tend to do a better job at the app level. And I can never really figure out what’s going on with Heroku by looking at New Relic. I don’t know if we’re just not using New Relic correctly or if it really does just suck for our use case. But I guess some insight is better than none.
How do you know what parts of the workflow need improvement? Measure it. With New Relic in place, we have graphs of our API performance and can directly see if a server or zone is causing trouble, and the impact of our changes. There’s no comparison between a real-time performance graph and “Strange, the site seems slow, I should tail the logs”.
We monitor and troubleshoot our app's performance using New Relic, which gives us a great view into each type of request that hits our servers. It also gives us a nice weekly summary of error rates and response times so that we know how well we've done in the past week.
I'm trying to wring more instrumentation out of New Relic as it pertains to Rack, but for the time being, New Relic is monitoring/alerting uptime and some basic performance metrics.
Just like we care about errors, we care about metrics - especially around performance. You'd be crazy not to use it - and not surprisingly, it's a one-click add-on in Heroku.
Used for application performance management (APM), great solution with great pricing. Very cool how they integrated error and log data into stack trace
