Nestjs is a Nodejs framework for building scalable server-side applications with typescript. It makes use of frameworks like Express and Fastify to enable rapid development. It has gained wide popularity in recent times, and many applications are making use of the Nestjs framework. Monitoring your Nestjs application is critical for performance management. But setting up monitoring for Nestjs applications can get cumbersome requiring multiple libraries and patterns. That's where Opentelemetry comes in.

9 Ways to Improve Node.js Performance

Node.js is the most popular tool for developing server applications in JavaScript, the world's most widely used programming language. Node.js is now regarded as a critical tool for all types of microservices-based development and delivery, as it has the capabilities of both a web server and an application server. In any web application, performance is critical. Faster performance in any web application improves the user experience and leads to increased revenue, which makes business owners pleased.

Nodejs Performance Monitoring | Monitor a full-stack Nodejs application with open-source tools

Nodejs tops the list of most widely used frameworks for server-side programming by developers. Powered by Google’s V8 engine, its performance is incredible. As a result, Nodejs has now become a critical part of the technology stack of large-scale enterprises and startups. And as nodejs is based on Javascript, it is also easier to learn and begin with. Nodejs is a dynamically typed single-threaded programming language.

Node.js Performance Testing and Tuning: Step by Step Approach

Node.js is well-known for its lightning-fast performance. However, as with any programming language, you might develop Node.js code that performs poorly for your users. Appropriate performance testing is required to combat this. Node.js can be used for a variety of tasks, including scripting to do tasks, running a web server, and serving static files, such as a website. Today, we'll go over the procedures to test a Node.js HTTP web API.

How to audit Node.js modules

Node.js is one of the best and most widely used Javascript runtimes used for building APIs. But, this popularity status has led to many hackers distributing insecure modules that exploit the Node.js application or provide a weak point for exploitation. In this tutorial, you will learn how to audit Node.js modules and also detect vulnerabilities in modules using npm audit.

MEVN stack tutorial | Build a CRUD app using Vue 3, Node, Express & MongoDB

Adding Redis & MySQL to AppSignal for Node.js with OpenTelemetry

We've simultaneously launched 4 new integrations for Node.js: Redis, ioredis, MySQL, and MySQL2. This means that you can now see all the details of a query in the Event Timeline and Slow Query screens in AppSignal. Because we are a small and bootstrapped team, we've chosen to embrace OpenTelemetry as a means of expanding AppSignal's offering in the Node.js ecosystem.

Best practices to collect, customize and centralize Node.js logs

Node.js is an established platform for developing server-side applications in JavaScript. One of the most fundamental concerns that arise during the development of Node.js apps is how to carry out proper logging that will be safe, secure and performant. While there are several options for configuring Node.js logging, a few specific engineering best practices still apply, no matter which option you choose.

How to use VSCode to debug a Node.js application

Debugging is an essential step in software development, as it allows developers to fix errors before releasing the software to the public. Debugging tools can be integrated into code editors, making the debugging process more efficient. This tutorial will show you how to debug node.js in Visual Studio Code.

Get more insights with the new version of the Node.js library

We’re thrilled to announce the release of a new update to the Cloud Logging Library for Node.js with the key new features of improved error handling and writing structured logging to standard output which becomes handy if you run applications in serverless environments like Google Functions!
