Optaros knows Magento. As the creator and manager of the largest Magento Enterprise instances in existence, Optaros knows to focus on performance, optimization and scaling. That’s why they utilized AppNeta TraceView. To help improve performance and optimization work, they created a custom extension to track Magento Enterprise specifics, and identify bottlenecks in a single click on production environments.

So many colors

While TraceView can monitor Magento sites without it, the Optaros extension adds the following capabilities with no integration:

  • Extra “layers” to pinpoint issues to specific stage of the request (bootstrap, rewrite, pre dispatch, post dispatch, load and render layout)
  • Partitions traffic based on logged-in / anonymous customers, or admin traffic
  • Group requests by controller/action (product view, cart add)
  • Automatically tag pages for Real User Performance Monitoring

This free Traceview Magento extension is available for download on Magento Connect.

The source code is open sourced and available on GitHub for further collaboration.
