Monitoring for the modern development team.

No developer ever said "I hope I get to spend all day hunting down a performance issue". When the unavoidable happens, The Scout platform is focused on finding the root cause of performance problems as quickly as possible.

Scout is monitoring for fast-moving dev teams like us. We leverage the tools that help us get big things done - Github, PaaS services, dynamic languages, frequent releases - to build a tailored monitoring platform for modern teams.

Scout continually tracks down N+1 database queries, sources of memory bloat, performance abnormalities, and more.
