SolarWinds® AppOptics™ offers out-of-the-box Node.js performance support, so you can typically begin monitoring your Node.js applications within minutes. Real-time tracing with AppOptics helps you troubleshoot application performance issues before they become unmanageable across your distributed applications.
Out-of-the-box support for Node.js applications includes additional support for dozens of modules and frameworks. AppOptics is built to offer support for Express, Hapi, Kraken, MEAN.JS, Restify, Koa, and Coke, all based on Node.js.
AppOptics provides real-time visibility into app performance by collecting high-fidelity metrics and detailed transaction traces. Distributed tracing follows requests across processes and hosts in the cloud and in data centers—not just on the app level. AppOptics helps you view broad time-dependent trends in addition to specific code-level root cause analysis.
AppOptics is designed to be a flexible solution for multilingual setups. In addition to Node.js support, AppOptics provides out-of-the-box support for dozens of other frameworks and libraries.
AppOptics removes the divide between application and infrastructure health metrics, so you can enjoy unified dashboards and alerts and holistic management. With AppOptics, you can analyze more than just application-layer metrics—you can view underlying infrastructure health metrics in the same interface. When you identify an exception in your Node.js performance, you can trace it back to your servers, virtual hosts, or databases no matter where they are. If the problem is on-premises or in a private or public cloud, AppOptics can help eliminate the source of your bottleneck.
AppOptics gives you a great deal of flexibility. It allows you to create your own custom metrics to go along with the out-of-the-box standard ones. Custom metrics can help you tie together your applications, infrastructure, and business metrics and correlate your IT performance with business performance.
To further simplify the use of your custom metrics, AppOptics offers multi-dimensional tags, so you can easily filter and group data. For custom trend analytics, you can define transformations to perform on native metrics or time series. You can also customize your dashboard for your unique business needs or create one from scratch, ensuring your most important metrics are visible front and center.
AppOptics provides out-of-the-box support for Node.js apps and associated frameworks so you can collect the key information you need from the start.
AppOptics lets you remove the wall between application and infrastructure metrics and allows for combined dashboards. Whenever you encounter an issue with Node.js performance—or issues with another language or framework—you can more easily find slow queries, bugs, inefficient code, or other problems within the underlying infrastructure.
In addition, AppOptics lets you customize the metrics you’d like to track for Node.js and receive alerts on those metrics as soon as they exceed set thresholds.
The insights AppOptics offers into Node.js give you the tools you need to track Node.js performance and more quickly troubleshoot issues.
