Datadog Continuous Profiler analyzes and compares code performance all the time and in any environment, including production, with negligible overhead. Quickly identify and optimize the most time- and resource-consuming parts in your application code in order to improve MTTR, enhance user experience, and reduce cloud provider costs.


Pinpoint hard to replicate production issues caused by inefficient code

  • Continuously profile each line of code in any environment without affecting application performance and user experience
  • Identify methods that are inefficient under production load, despite having performed well in pre-production environments
  • Optimize resource consumption and save on compute costs with code profiling aggregations across hosts, services, and versions

Method-level visibility into every request

  • Tie every distributed trace in APM to the performance of methods and threads that executed the request
  • Determine the root cause of slow requests with a breakdown of time spent by method on garbage collection, locks, and I/O
  • Resolve service bottlenecks and improve user experience by optimizing the methods that are causing high latency
Method-level visibility into every request

Track every deploy and eliminate code performance regressions

  • Compare a variety of profile types to analyze the performance impact of new code during canary, blue/green, or shadow deploys
  • Isolate the most resource-heavy methods to quickly understand what is causing a spike in latency, CPU utilization, or memory allocation
  • Monitor code performance variations in production by applying code profiling metrics to your dashboards

Automated code profiling insights, leveraging years of runtime expertise

  • Derive actionable insights from an automatic heuristic analysis of the main problem areas in your code
  • Surface runtime performance problems such as deadlocked threads, inefficient garbage collection, and memory leaks
  • Apply suggested fixes to improve application performance without having prior experience in code profiling
