Monitoring is key to gain a better understanding of the health of your application. For example, by implementing monitoring, you can detect problems, such as a memory leak or long-running processes that block the Node.js event loop.
Thanks to 2020, many of us don't remember the last time we took a holiday or vacation. If you were able to get away from the office, kudos to you.
