Background Job Tracing for Ruby Applications
January 21, 2016 by Ashish Kakran
Background jobs help reduce your web app’s response time by separating time- and resource-consuming tasks from web requests.

This results in happier end users, as they are able to access their dashboards or profile pages…Continue reading

We’re happy to say that we recently released the code for the TraceView Ruby instrumentation on Github as Open Source.

TraceView and Ruby: Now Open Source!
November 13, 2013 by James Meickle
Open source is a big part of who we are at AppNeta. Take a glance at our public GitHub page and you’ll see some of our libraries (like TBone) and side projects (like Burndown). Until recently, though, we hadn’t released any of TraceView’s core components. We’re very happy to say that, thanks to Peter Lombardo’s…Continue reading
Russian Doll Caching
August 7, 2013 by Peter Giacomo Lombardo
Rails 4 is out featuring Russian Doll caching (AKA Cache Digests). In this article, I apply Russian Doll caching to one of my poorer performing Rails 3 pages using the cache_digests gem.

This time, let’s look at what it takes to measure the internals of Symfony. On the…Continue reading
