Datadog on RocksDB

Datadog is a monitoring and analytics platform that ingests trillions of data points per day, coming from more than 8,000 customers. Each of those is associated with metadata, mostly in the form of tags, and it can also be part of streams of related data points, which can then be explored, queried, or aggregated. RocksDB is used by many services at Datadog that are part of that metrics ingestion, aggregation, query, and index pipeline.

Achieving a 12% performance lift migrating Raygun's API to .NET Core 3.1

Here at Raygun, improving performance is baked into our culture. We don't just think about our application performance, but more broadly, we look at our own infrastructure and ask if there's anything we can do to make it more performant for our business and for our customers. Two years ago, we switched our API from Node.js to .NET Core and achieved a 2000% increase in throughput. To continue that story, we recently upgraded .NET Core 2.1 to 3.1 and saw a 12% increase in performance. We enjoy presenting our performance findings, so in this post, we'd like to give some context into why we upgraded and the conditions that helped us achieve the 12% performance lift.

Best Practices for Monitoring Azure Services

Monitoring your Azure cloud computing environment requires an understanding of each component of your Azure infrastructure and how they all interact.

Combined, these three services provide a comprehensive cloud-based computing setup for any business.


Be a Better Java Developer With AppOptics Dev Edition

Monitoring your Java applications is an essential part of ensuring high availability and good performance. And yet, many Java developers hold off on practicing application performance management (APM) until they’ve already deployed their application to a test environment, or even to production. Perhaps they don’t have access to an APM solution with the right insights, or maybe they don’t have the time or resources to deploy to a temporary environment and wait for metrics to come in.
