AppSignal for Elixir Now Supports Oban

If you're using Oban for managing background jobs in your Elixir application and want to gain a deeper data-driven understanding of how they perform, you've come to the right place. AppSignal for Elixir now automatically instruments Oban, meaning you can now monitor the performance of your background jobs through an AppSignal Magic Dashboard, which gives you detailed information on queue times, processing times, and notifies you of any exceptions.

Elixir - Monitor your Elixir Application with OpenTelemetry and SigNoz

SigNoz provides query and visualization capabilities for the end-user and comes with out-of-box charts for application metrics and traces. Now let’s get down to how to implement OpenTelemetry in your Elixir application. More about SigNoz: SigNoz - Monitor your applications and troubleshoot problems in your deployed applications, an open-source alternative to DataDog, New Relic, etc. Backed by Y Combinator.

Monitor your Elixir application with OpenTelemetry and SigNoz

OpenTelemetry can be used to instrument your Elixir applications to generate telemetry data. The telemetry data can then be visualized using an observability tool to monitor your Elixir application performance. In this tutorial, we will use OpenTelemetry Elixir libraries to instrument an Elixir application and then visualize it using SigNoz. Somewhere during the lifetime of an application, it's inevitable that it will have some performance issues.


Monitor Scheduler Utilization in Elixir With AppSignal

When it comes to monitoring your Elixir application, it's challenging to make sense of the many metrics and statistics that you can read from the internals of the Erlang virtual machine. In this post, we'll be looking at the scheduler utilization metric in order to understand what it is, why we should monitor it, and how to monitor it.


Get instant Grafana dashboards for Prometheus metrics with the Elixir PromEx library

I have been using Grafana for almost four years now, and in that time it has become my go-to tool for my application observability needs. Especially now that Grafana allows you to also view logs and traces, you can easily have all three pillars of observability surfaced through Grafana. As a result, when I started working on the Elixir PromEx library, having Grafana be the end target for the metrics dashboards made perfect sense.


AppSignal for Elixir Integration 2.1 Released

We’re happy to announce the release of AppSignal for Elixir 2.1.0. 🥳 In this version, we’ve made our error helpers more flexible than before. You could already send Elixir exceptions directly through AppSignal and now you can add extra metadata to errors when using send_error/2-4. Let’s go through all of the changes 😀
