Enter “New Relic“. This server-based performance-tracking suite of tools helps to monitor, measure and improve performance of applications and, if interpreted and utilized correctly, can save tremendous time in helping to enhance your application.
Wyolution recently integrated New Relic with multiple clients, including the Civilian Marksmanship Program’s Competition Tracker. We were able to immediately use the results to optimize queries that were slowing down the system; discover, troubleshoot and fix errors that were previously unknown to the team; and fine tune various parts of the stack to increase performance significantly. The result is a faster-running, more error-free environment for the CMP’s user base; a better product for the CMP that generates less support calls; and peace of mind at Wyolution that the app is running smoothly, performing well, and being monitored for trouble spots should they arise. That’s a win-win-win in our book.
