Best Practices to Monitor Node.js Performance

Built on the V8 JavaScript engine of Chrome, Node.js is a very lightweight, open-source framework with minimum modules. And since it is an asynchronous system by default, it is faster than most other frameworks. DevOps still need Node.js monitoring to ensure performance better than other frameworks. In order to understand how relevant Node.js still is, note that PayPal, Reddit, LinkedIn, Amazon, Netflix and other high-use, high-visibility service providers use the framework.


The Application Hierarchy of Needs for SREs and IT Operators

Maslow’s “Hierarchy of Needs” was used to represent the needs and behavioral motivation drivers for humans. This pyramid represented a series of basic psychological and self-fulfillment needs. The hierarchy has been adapted and adopted to represent the needs and motivations in other domains, including the needs of applications and services being managed by SREs and IT Operations teams.


What is APM? Overview and Features (The Beginner's Guide)

Application performance monitoring (APM) extends observability beyond system availability, service performance, and response times in current, cloud-native contexts. Organizations can improve user experiences at the scale of modern computing by using automatic and intelligent observability. User experiences in software applications are monitored and managed using APM technologies.
