python-traceview: A Library for the TraceView API

Not too long ago, we introduced the TraceView Data API, which exposes high level metrics and performance data related to your TraceView account via a RESTful API. For the unfamiliar, this means you can access server latency timeseries, application error rates, and even browsers used by end users. In an effort to make accessing the […]

Announcing Auto-RUM for Apache, nginx

Real User Monitoring extends TraceView’s performance purview from the application’s backend performance to full browser pageloads.  This provides a more complete view of end-user experience. Until now, this was done by adding small script tags to the beginning and end of your templates.  Today, we’re releasing Apache and nginx instrumentation which will automate this process, […]

Measuring User Satisfaction

When monitoring an application’s performance, start at the highest level: how is the app performing for users?  It’s important to measure this using both technical metrics (eg. latency, page weight) and also experiential metrics (Apdex, speed index). We’ve recently introduced Apdex-based performance scoring to TraceView.  Now, we’re taking that a step further, with Apdex for […]

Communicating End User Experience: Apdex and Transaction Groups

“How is my site performing?” What begins as a simple-seeming question can turn out to be quite complex; the answer depends, of course, on how you choose to measure performance. Are you looking for server-side performance, or end-user? Would an average latency be a good answer, or would the 98th percentile latency be better? And […]

Customizing Chef Bootstrap Templates

At AppNeta, we use Chef to set up EC2 instances for the purpose of testing our TraceView instrumentation modules.  TraceView has agents for Java, .NET, Python, Ruby, and PHP, and one of the most important requirements for all of these is that they’re easy to deploy (typically less than 5 minutes). This means it should be […]
