So, what exactly does OverOps do? OverOps pinpoints the exact cause of critical exceptions in your application with the variable state for context. Armed with that information, you don’t have to waste countless hours on detective work sorting through logs or your APM to figure out what happened with your application and what precisely needs to be fixed. For example, a programmer typically sees an exception with the related stack trace like the following.

Ever create the perfect Spark application with automated tests just to have it fail when it is distributed and run on a big data set? If so then this article is for you. My name is Chris Caspanello and before I joined OverOps, I worked on Pentaho, a leading visual data transformation tool. One of its powerful features is to develop a transformation locally and then run that transformation on your big data cluster with Spark. Sounds cool, right?

Automated garbage collection (along with the JIT HotSpot Compiler) is one of the most advanced and most valued components of the JVM, but many developers and engineers are far less familiar with Garbage Collection (GC), how it works and how it impacts application performance. First, what is GC even for? Garbage collection is the memory management process for objects in the heap.

What is the ultimate alerting strategy to make sure your alerts are meaningful and not just noise? Production monitoring is critical for your application’s success, we know that. But how can you be sure that the right information is getting to the right people? Automating the monitoring process can only be effective when actionable information gets to the right person. The answer is automated alerting.

Over the past few years, we have experienced a shift in the way we deliver applications. We are being forced to innovate faster and deliver higher quality software more frequently. Applications are now commonly built on microservices and using Kubernetes. In response to this, the way we approach the design and delivery of software has changed. Most would identify the cloud as a main component of this change. While that’s true, let’s dig deeper.

Per Forbes, the distributed workforce is here to stay. Over half of Americans now work either full-time or part-time from somewhere that isn’t an office. We can only expect that number to keep growing, and while other countries haven’t jumped into fully remote work quite as quickly as the United States, the global trends are undoubtedly headed in the same direction.

As the general population becomes more app-savvy and less patient, app performance has become a major issue for any company needing to keep the customer’s attention. Need statistical proof? 47% of consumers expect a page to load in two seconds or less, and 40% will abandon a website that takes more than three seconds to load. Three seconds is of course an eternity in the age of 5G and IoT. A LOT can happen in those three seconds.

According to Gartner, the average cost of IT downtime is $5,600 per minute and typically ranges from $140,000 per hour on the low end to $540,000 per hour at the higher end. And that’s not even taking into account the “hidden” costs of downtime, such as erosion of trust—something that can happen especially fast when it comes to financial services applications.

As DevOps teams release and automate with increasing frequency, performance and availability problems have soared, leading to more time troubleshooting and less time developing amazing apps. This means reducing Mean Time to Identify (MTTI) and Mean Time to Resolve (MTTR) is more important than ever, especially in the financial services industry where massive disruption has become the norm.

97% of Logged Errors are Caused by 10 Unique Errors It’s 2021 and one thing hasn’t changed in 30 years. DevOps teams still rely on log files to troubleshoot application issues. We trust log files implicitly because we think the truth is hidden within them. If you just grep hard enough, or write the perfect regex query, the answer will magically present itself in front of you.

Over the past few years, we have experienced a shift in the way we deliver applications. Every step of the development process has accelerated, and yet, we still need to deliver high-quality, reliable software. This guide details the necessary tooling that every enterprise DevOps team needs, and covers the most popular choices for every category.

Development and IT Ops teams commonly find themselves in a game of tug-of-war between two key objectives: agility (i.e. driving innovation) and reliability (i.e. maintaining stable software). Unfortunately, the pressure to out-innovate competitors often comes at the expense of reliability. To help organizations better manage the balancing act between agility and reliability, we've developed the Continuous Reliability Maturity Model.

Agile workflows are the new normal for software development, and CI/CD is continuing to help accelerate the release cycle. But, successful developer teams know that CI/CD isn't enough on its own. With code being pushed to production and things breaking faster than ever, more and more teams are adding components of Continuous Reliability to their workflows.

Production exception handling is a dark science. It’s the least explored subject, with the largest impact on your application's behavior. In this guide, we're bringing in the research to introduce a new workflow for solving Java application errors.

OverOps is a software reliability platform that applies machine learning to your code as its running to automatically identify anomalies such as newly introduced issues, error regressions and slowdowns and to provide their root cause to the right person.

When an anomalous failure occurs, a complete picture of the code is provided, including:

  • Execution stack, source code and complete variable state
  • Previous 250 log statements (including DEBUG- and INFO-level, even in production)
  • Frequency and failure rate for ALL known and unknown errors and exceptions
  • Classification of new versus reintroduced errors
  • Which release or build is associated with each specific event
  • & more event analytics

The data collected is unique to the OverOps platform but can easily be leveraged by other tools like Splunk, AppD and Grafana for monitoring, alerting and visualization purposes. Not only does access to this information greatly reduce resolution time for issues in all environments including production, it provides deep visibility into the overall quality of new deployments and of the application as a whole.

As more organizations aim to innovate faster and deliver a seamless digital experience for their customers, OverOps helps avoid costly downtime with minimal performance impact and no need to modify code.
