Introducing Python Performance Monitoring
GitHub's State of the Octoverse 2017 revealed that Python is now the second-most popular language on GitHub, with 40 percent more pull requests opened in 2017. We couldn't help but notice. Today, we're excited to add Python to our existing Rails Monitoring and Elixir Monitoring agents.
Our Python support is currently in tech preview: this means it is free to use, but also brand new and not yet feature-equivalent to our Ruby and Elixir monitoring agents. To start, we're monitoring Django applications (update: we've added support for Flask) and their SQL queries, views, and templates, but our library coverage will increase as we near general availability. You can follow along and suggest what you'd like to see next on GitHub.
Scout isn't the first company to monitor Python applications. What's special about Scout is the focus: we've put an incredible effort into surfacing the types of time-intensive soft failures that impact today's applications. Each of your customers has a unique experience with your application. Scout makes it easier to identify and understand why issues are impacting one subset of customers versus another.
