Node.js Application Performance Monitoring

Get end-to-end Node.js application performance monitoring to map and track metrics or business transactions — even in the most complex and distributed environments.

Auto-discovered Business Transactions, dynamic baselining, code-level diagnostics, and Virtual War Room collaboration ensure rapid issue identification and resolution to maintain an ideal user experience for any Node.js application, running on-premises or in the cloud. Drill down into process call graphs, correlate transactions traversing across your distributed environment, and diagnose memory leaks, CPU problems, and performance bottlenecks while running in a live production or development environment. Leverage APIs to proactively monitor business transactions and track JavaScript errors for non-web-based applications.


Get end-to-end visibility into your Node.js application environment and all the dependencies

  • Automatically discover application topology and interdependencies, and correlate and trace key Business Transactions based on production application behavior
  • Visualize and prioritize end-to-end Business Transaction performance, not just the health of the application and infrastructure nodes


Node.js monitoring at code-level depth within minutes

  • Get in-depth application monitoring with detailed call graphs leveraging Automated Code Instrumentation within minutes
  • See the total execution time and the percentage of the total execution time of each method on the process’s call stack
  • Easily locate hot spots and slow methods within your application code by drilling into transaction snapshots to determine potential blocking code



Flame Graphs

  • Use flame graphs to visualize the execution of your Node.js application code
  • Bucket codepaths into logical groups to easily prioritize which code to optimize first
  • Swiftly find the root cause of a blocked Node.js event loop



Diagnose Memory Leaks

  • With Allocation Snapshots, view the amount and percentage of the memory allocated by each method on the process’s call stack
  • Full configuration over how much memory a method must allocate to be displayed in the allocation call graph
  • Solve memory leaks with Object Instance Tracking for better insight into heap activity related to object counts and size



Minimize application downtime with real-time detection of errors and exceptions

  • Detect the errors and exceptions thrown by application components in real time
  • Fix the errors and proactively address the exceptions with policy-based actions with Runbook Automation




Understand end user experiences across the globe

  • Visually monitor your mobile and web user experiences across the globe in context with your application performance through a single pane of glass
  • Rapidly identify the exact offending line of code in the Node.js application impacting the end user




Manage performance of heterogeneous databases in context with Node.js monitoring

  • Visually understand how database performance is impacting your overall application
  • Diagnose issues and pinpoint the queries causing performance bottlenecks


Correlate your Node.js performance monitoring with underlying server infrastructure visibility

  • Understand infrastructure resource consumption in the context of application performance and end user experience
  • Automatically capture infrastructure snapshots in context with Business Transaction when performance degrades

In addition to the key features described above, you can enjoy all the other benefits provided by the AppDynamics APM platform, automated baseline of performance, intelligent alerting and health rules, ease of use, and more.
