We are excited to announce the General Availability release of our PHP APM agent. You can now monitor your Laravel applications out of the box, and support for more PHP frameworks is in the works!

Give it a try!

Adding our agent to your Laravel app is simple - just follow the instructions in our documentation. When you add Scout APM to your Laravel app, you’ll be able to automatically see the timings for:

Features

Our PHP agent has many features that point you directly to performance problems and identifies potential areas of improvement, including:

Attach additional information to detailed traces so you can have important contextual information about the trace.

Custom Instrumentation

Want to measure specific functions or transactions that are not automatically instrumented out of the box? Use our custom instrumentation to get performance insight into any part of your application.
