Monitoring Node.js Application With AppOptics on DigitalOcean - Better Together

Many teams take advantage of the convenience of deploying their apps to the platform as a service (PaaS) providers such as DigitalOcean. Cloud solutions like this are an easy way for teams to deploy and scale their applications without worrying about the details. However, even in these managed environments, poorly written apps can cause issues. If your pages load too slowly, users will likely leave your site and look for another.

Comprehensive Observability via Distributed Tracing on Node js | Node Congress

The benefits of Node.js to develop real-time applications at scale are very well known. As Node.js architectures get more and more complex, visualization of your microservice-based architecture is crucial. However, the visualization of microservices is incredibly complex given the scale and the transactions across them. You not only need to visualize your Node.js applications but also analyze the health, flow, and performance of applications to have a complete observability solution. In this talk, we'll go over the challenges of scaling your Node.js applications and tools (such as distributed tracing) available to you to scale with confidence.

Monitoring Node.js Health and CPU Usage

What’s the most wanted feature for a Node.js application? Well, high performance with no downtime is one of the top answers for this question. But how do you accomplish this? 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.


NodeSource brings C++ API to N|Solid!

NodeSource is excited to announce C++ API - Beta! 🥳 With this new API, you will be able to use all the features and power of N|Solid with your own C++ code. In case you missed it, NodeSource also launched JS API which allows you to have all the metrics and functionality of the N|Solid console using your own JavaScript code programmatically.


PagerDuty integration with N|Solid

In the latest version of NSolid v4.4.2 NodeSource introduced the new PagerDuty integration that allows users to configure message notifications that are automatically triggered when your Node.js application experiences critical performance, lifecycle, and/or security events in production. This ensures DevOps professionals looking after applications running in production, can be notified on time about new performance and security issues.


Improving Node.js Application Performance With Clustering

When building a production application, you are usually on the lookout for ways to optimize its performance while keeping any possible trade-offs in mind. In this post, we’ll take a look at an approach that can give you a quick win when it comes to improving the way your Node.js apps handle the workload. An instance of Node.js runs in a single thread which means that on a multi-core system (which most computers are these days), not all cores will be utilized by the app.


Node.js Error Handling Made Easy: Best Practices On Just About Everything You Need to Know

Don’t you hate it when you see an uncaughtException error pop up and crash your Node.js app? Yeah… I feel you. Can anything be worse? Oh yeah, sorry, unhandledRejection I didn’t see you there. What a nightmare you are. 😬 I maintain all Node.js open-source repos at Sematext. A few of them can help you out with error handling, but more about that further down. Here at Sematext, we take error handling seriously! I want to share a bit of that today.


Node By Numbers 2020

2020 has been a remarkable year, full of change and reinvention. Yet one thing remains the same, NodeSource Node.js binary downloads keep increasing month by month, providing millions of users around the world with the power of Node.js. Node By Numbers 2020 gives us important insights into the usage of Node.js across Linux environments and the Node.js community in general.


Experimenting with remote debugging: Node.js runtime code injection

Remote debugging is fun to play around with. This article describes a method to dynamically change the behavior of a running Node.js process by enabling the remote inspector interface and then use the Chrome debug protocol. On Linux and MacOS, it is possible to send a SIGUSR1 signal to a running Node.js process. The process will open a websocket server listening on local interfaces only.
