AWS re:Invent Day Two

By Andre Bullet_white Comments Comments

The Scout conference team in full force! From left to right: Derek Haynes, Dave Anderson, me, and Megan Strahm.

Our three big takeaways from conversations on the expo floor today:

  1. Developers are psyched about an alternative to New Relic for SaaS application performance monitoring.
  2. There are lots of polyglot applications on AWS. Java plays a huge role.
  3. Cross-process transaction traces: being able to trace a request across micro-services is high on everyone's wish list.

One more day -- if you haven't stopped by our booth yet, come see us!

StackProf: The Holy Grail of Rails Profiling

By Mark Bullet_white Posted in App Monitoring Bullet_white Comments Comments


The holy grail of performance profiling is finding a tool that's safe to run in production. A tool that identifies slow code as it works "in the wild".

Profiling code locally is never as good as production profiling: the load is small, hardware specs are different, and I'd need to pull down a huge chunk of data to simulate things.

Enter StackProf, the production safe*, holy grail of Ruby profiling tools.

Heading to the mountains

By Derek Bullet_white Comments Comments

grand lake

There's no better place for big thinking than the mountains.

Just a short time ago, Scout was myself and Andre. Today, we're a fun, smart team of seven (and growing).

We've got grand plans for the future of Scout (we'll be debuting those @ aws:reinvent) and we're hunkering down in Grand Lake, Colorado working on the next exciting phase of Scout.

Expect a full report later on what we're working on...
