Announcing the Preview of Splunk APM's AlwaysOn Profiling

For application developers and service owners who build and troubleshoot modern enterprise software, resolving production issues requires identifying poor performance across multiple networks, operating systems, servers, configs, and third party dependencies. When the problem is the code itself, code profiling helps identify service bottlenecks by periodically taking CPU snapshots, or call stacks, from a runtime environment.


Compare and optimize your code with Datadog Profile Comparison

Code profilers offer detailed insight into the efficiency of application code by measuring things like the execution time and resource utilization of a service. Datadog’s always-on, low overhead Continuous Profiler provides snapshots of code performance for a service that are tagged with key metadata (e.g., region, service, release), so you can easily identify and optimize inefficient code.


How to Troubleshoot Performance with a Visual Studio Profiler

Performance profilers mainly aid developers in analyzing the performance of applications. The purpose is to improve poorly performing sections of code that make up the functions of the application. When you say performance profilers, common names that come to mind are Visual Studio performance profilers and Prefix by Netreo. In this article, we will focus on the specific Visual Studio profiling tools for memory and CPU usage.


Optimized: Using A JavaScript (JS) Profiler For Improved Performance

No matter what you’re coding, there’s always room to optimize your code and improve performance. This can be a painstaking process, and if you’re going over your code line by line you’d better cancel all your plans and forget about getting any sleep! Fortunately, there are better ways to examine and optimize your code. A JS profiler is an efficient tool to help you understand your code better – effectively finding, pinpointing and optimizing bottlenecks in your code.


Debugging Ruby Applications with Instana AutoProfile Production Profiler

In the latest Instana release (Instana Release 201), AutoProfile for Ruby is generally available. This allows teams developing and supporting Ruby based applications to continuously collect and analyze CPU profiles, without modification to their applications[1]. To help acquaint you with how AutoProfile for Ruby can enhance your observability workflows, let’s walk through a simple example of when profiling can enhance our tracing experience.


What is the best way to profile a Java application in eclipse

Java profiling in Eclipse allows you to optimize your code, streamline your application, and better understand your program. When profiling your application using a line-level analysis, you can reveal the slowest line within a sluggish piece of code, helping you efficiently troubleshoot problems. There are a variety of platforms for profiling Java eclipse. Eclipse is a popular software and is especially valuable for beginners due to its clean interface and free and open-source background.


Why Python cProfile is the Recommended Profiling Interface

Performance optimization is a basic need for software development. When it comes to optimizing app performance, tracking frequency, maintaining production, or perpetuation method calls, profilers play a vital role. Learn why Python cProfile is a recommended profiling interface and how it enhances your software performance.


How to Choose the Best Performance Profiling Tools

You finish writing your code and launch your application. Then, you begin experiencing performance issues. How can you fix this? It doesn’t matter how talented your development team is, every code should always be analyzed, debugged, and reviewed to make it run faster. What you need is a performance profiling tool. In this article, you will learn about performance profiling and how to determine the best performance profiling tools for your software.


Using Instana AutoProfile to Optimize Application Performance

I was inspired by Marcel and others writing about life of SRE at Instana and how our SRE team uses Instana in their daily work to keep the Instana SAAS platform running smoothly. But Instana is not just a tool for Site Reliability Engineering. It’s also a tool for developers. With this blog post, I want to give you a glimpse of how Instana developers use Instana to continuously improve Instana.
