Using the right Ruby interpreter to run your programs can make all the difference. Unfortunately, it can be tough to find resources about different Ruby interpreter options, or about how to choose the right one.

We've had sparkline charts of response time for a long time on our Endpoints tab, and now have extended them to the throughput column as well. Quickly isolate endpoints that are spiking with traffic, and drill down into them to diagnose. No need to hunt to see what's causing an unusual trend in traffic.

As reported on Issue #228, if scout_apm is disabled on a node via the configuration monitor = false, we don't intend to install any instruments, but a few snuck in anyway. Since the rest of the agent isn't running, they (slowly but steadily) built up recorded info, but didn't purge it, causing a slow memory leak that became clear over the course of a week or two. We've stopped the offending instruments from installing themselves when Scout is disabled.
