Order your Scout cycling kit

By Derek Bullet_white Posted in Updates Bullet_white Comments Comments

We're big fans of the outdoors - and cycling - at Scout.

I'm excited to announce Scout is the title sponsor for a development team in our home base of Fort Collins, Colorado. It's a super talented team you'll find all over North America in 2016. We'll have more details later, but lets talk about kits (that's what cycling uniforms are called).

I wanted to make sure the team looked great on the road - there's a lot of ugly cycling kits out there. I wanted one that stood and out and felt classy at the same time.

There's an initial concept on the right - we'll be dialing this in more. Besides looking good, the kit will be produced by Castelli, the same clothing manufacturer behind many of the top professional teams.

If you're interested in ordering a kit, email us. We'll add you to the list. The kits will be ordered later this month. It will be the best-fitting kit in your cycling wardrobe.

Learn about Go @ Scout: Denver Go Meetup Tomorrow

By Derek Bullet_white Posted in Updates Bullet_white Comments Comments

go love

Go has become an increasing part of our stack at Scout. At tomorrow's Denver Gophers Meetup, we'll be delivering two short talks for the price of one:

  • Dave will be talk about Native Ruby Extensions in Go. Lots of folks are using Ruby and Go together. We'll take about making that marriage smoother.
  • Chris will talk about our usage of InfluxDB, an open-source distributed timeseries database written in Go. We store tons of metrics: you'll hear our lessons learned.

Hope to see you there!

 

Git-integrated app monitoring

By Derek Bullet_white Posted in App Monitoring Bullet_white Comments Comments

Tracking down slow code is about to get a lot faster. We're excited to debut our Github Integration for Scout Application Monitoring:

github integration

With the Github Integration enabled, instead of seeing backtraces for slow method calls (>= 500 ms), you'll see the relevant code in our UI. This goes beyond the code: you'll also see who wrote it and when it was committed. Fix performance problems faster by assigning them to the developer most familiar with the code.

From a spike in response time to a Git blame: our improved path to slow code

By Derek Bullet_white Posted in App Monitoring Bullet_white Comments Comments

Before Scout, we used several app monitoring services.

One of my biggest frustrations: I never found a way to select a spike in response time from an overview chart and view what's slow during that period.

Those spikes are begging to be clicked. We wanted to make that happen.

Introducing click-and-drag

See a spike in response time for your app? Just click-and-drag over the chart. Scout will show how many slow requests occured. You can then jump to a list of all slow requests aggregated by the endpoint.

Using an iPad? Pinch the spike. It's fun.

Git Integration

git integration

We'll be releasing our Git integration before General Availability on Nov 16th. Watch the video above for a preview of this in action.

Pricing

You can pick between per-server pricing ($59/server) and pre-request pricing (starting at $20 for the first 1M requests with automatic volume discounts).

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!
