- Track every machine involved in a transaction and identify bottlenecks in a single click.

- Smart Tracing means you can run in production, with negligible overhead (< 1%).
- Understand spikes in the graphs, even if the cause is only a single outlying request.
- Visualize request patterns in one place to separate the noisy from the systematic.
- Cross-correlate information between multiple sources. Want to find the controller and action that scans entire MongoDB collections? Done, in a single screen.
