Best APM tool for finding *and fixing* performance bugs in your application code

2017-08-08

Pros

Nice email updates about performance changes day-to-day. Integrates into local apps as well, helping avoid deployment of performance issues.

Cons

The free tier restricts the duration of data access. Makes sense for their business (and I'm glad they even have a free tier), but it does make it tougher to track performance over longer time horizons.

Should have switched over from New Relic sooner

2019-01-14

We spend less time doing dev / ops and more time coding.

Pros

We're paying ~40% less than we were with New Relic, and Scout has made our dev team more effective, as the most common sources of performance issues are surfaced right on the Scout dashboard, so we don't have to toggle back and forth through countless charts to find the issues.

Cons

That being said, Scout integrates well with Sentry, and using a combination of the two has still been significantly cheaper than New Relic, and I think both Scout and Sentry's solutions are better than New Relic, so for us it was well worth the switch.

very flexible and powerfull

2013-02-06

With a bit of Ruby, I can quickly gather the metrics I need, view them on charts and dashboards, and get alerted when metrics head into bad territory
