Ruby Performance Monitoring

"Scout gives us a clear picture of what is going on in our Ruby applications and provides the insights needed to optimize our app performance. Scout's APM is both easily configurable and allows us to deploy with confidence." -Chad Wilken, CTO, CompanyCam

Solve memory bloat and n+1 queries in Ruby with Scout

Scout is Ruby Application Performance Monitoring (APM) that pinpoints and prioritizes performance and stability issues like N+1 database queries and memory bloat in Ruby applications. Scout's tracing logic detects and highlights the exact line of code causing the performance abnormality, and with detailed backtraces you can fix the issue before customers are impacted. Scout provides further insights by automatically calculating memory increase, tracking object allocations to minimize overhead and prioritizing query data by potential time saved.

Leverage Scout’s enhanced Database Query Monitoring for Ruby apps

Scout's database query monitoring feature helps you identify slow and repeatedly expensive database queries within your Ruby application. The database feature specifically collects metrics around the database and concisely visualizes only the relevant inisghts you need to understand how your database performs in relation to your app. The database monitoring feature connects transaction traces to their corresponding calls to provide better insights into what the query is and where it occurred.

Track user-specific issues with custom context for your Ruby Application

With the use of custom context you can go further in understanding not only which developer wrote the code but also how and which customer(s) this query impacted. Establishing custom context enables you to define different values to better understand why a particular query was slow. Scout also offers a customizable dashboard of custom context parameters and connect them to your slowest endpoint traces to optimize performance based on user experience.

Autoinstrumentation for popular Ruby libraries

Scout is the only leading APM that offers autoinstrumentation for many popular Ruby libraries to provide deeper insights into exactly how long your code took to run. Scout Autoinstruments is a feature that allows developers to bypass having to write custom instrumentation for controller code that wouldn't be instrumented out of the box. Autoinstruments provide developers with the custom code insights instead of lumping that data under Controllers like many other platforms.
