Solving the Out of Memory Killer Puzzle

Instana recently introduced Crash Detector, which automatically detects and reports abnormal process terminations on all Linux machines running Linux kernel 4.8 and above. Instana utilizes the Extended Berkeley Packet Filter (eBPF) functionalities of the Linux kernel to hook into the kernel itself and start listening for process terminations.

Resolve errors faster with Lightstep and Rollbar

Every day developers wade through a growing number of error alerts emerging from changes and issues across their interdependent systems. But identifying the critical errors and mapping them to the root cause and resolution involves too much unproductive, time-consuming guesswork. At Lightstep we’re always on the look for ways to make Observability best practices easier for any developer to adopt. Recently we’ve combined efforts with Rollbar, a platform for error monitoring and analysis.

Lightstep + Rollbar

At Lightstep we’re always on the look for ways to make Observability best practices easier for any developer to adopt. Recently we’ve combined efforts with Rollbar, a platform for error monitoring and analysis. In connecting our collective expertise, we’ve created workflows to remove the guesswork and improve error resolution in pre-production and production software.

New Feature: Number of Users Affected by a Crash

We've just released a way to track the number of users affected by a crash! If you navigate to the Summary page, you'll now see a column labeled 'Users Affected’, this column shows how many unique users have been affected for each row in the crash summary table. With the data provided by this new column, you’ll have additional information available for prioritizing fixes. The ‘Count’ column is unchanged, and reports the total number of crashes reported by all users.

Robust JavaScript Error Handling. Learn About JavaScript Errors

By combining custom errors, named functions and Bugfender, you can create a robust error-handling process that allows you to immediately identify the defects of your JavaScript apps. Unhandled JavaScript errors will stop the execution of your script, leaving the application in an undesired state – or, even worse, in an unknown state. So you need a robust error-handling process to avoid unknown errors in your apps. But, why are errors thrown anyway?

The Great Irony of Serverless Computing

Working with Serverless computing is like riding an electric bike. You get speed, flexibility, automatic assistance to scale with ease. Development is usually hassle-free because you can focus on code and only pay for usage of the service. Except when your users hit an error. Debugging that issue feels like your bike’s battery just died while climbing a steep hill.

How we scale Raygun's architecture to handle more data

Due to the huge importance of sourcemaps in the workflow of our customers, sourcemaps are a crucial part of our Crash Reporting offering. We constantly strive to stay ahead of our customer demands as the amount of data we process continues to grow. We identified the sourcemapping process as an area ripe for performance improvement, so we took it apart and looked at exciting ways to build it from the ground-up using cutting-edge tech.

Support for Crashpad Attachments

BugSplat now supports attachments for Crashpad out of the box. Developers can include additional files with the Crashpad crash upload using the newest release of the BugSplat Crashpad SDK. This release includes updated examples that show how to include Crashpad attachments for Windows, Linux, Android, Qt Windows, and Qt Linux (but not yet for macOS). Before this change, including attachments with Crashpad out of the box was difficult.
