End-to-end application performance monitoring

  • Follow requests from RUM sessions to services, serverless functions, and databases
  • View traces and logs in context with automatic trace_id injection
  • Connect distributed traces to infrastructure metrics, network calls, and live processes
  • Tie synthetic API and browser test failures to backend errors

No sampling, no blind spots

  • Ingest, search, and analyze 100% of traces live over the last 15 minutes
  • Retain errors and high latency traces automatically for 15 days
  • Control cost-visibility tradeoffs with custom Retention Filters
  • Generate custom metrics from all ingested spans to track trends and KPIs

Code-level visibility, instant root cause analysis

  • Inspect methods, classes, and threads for requests tied to Continuous Profiler
  • Break down slow requests by time spent in code on CPU, GC, lock contention, and I/O
  • Jump from high resource-consuming profiles to the worst offending traces
  • Enhance application performance monitoring with regression detection after code deploys
Code level monitoring for every application service and individual request

Track deploys, ship with confidence

  • Monitor and compare impacts of canary, blue-green, and shadow deploys on application performance
  • Pinpoint error and latency outliers with out-of-the-box service dashboards
  • Visualize service dependency changes due to deploys using the Service Map
