Company Adds New Language Support to Only APM Solution to Include Automatic Performance Profiling
Instana, a leading provider of APM and Observability Solutions for Cloud-Native and microservice applications, today announced the availability of always-on profiling for production PHP and Python applications. With the addition of this production profiling support, Instana becomes the first APM solution to provide automatic continuous production profiling of Java, GoLang, Python and PHP with a common interface and correlated with production application monitoring and tracing for better analysis.
This latest language support builds on Instana’s integration of technology acquired from the company’s acquisition of StackImpact last year. It marks the third release of integrated product from the two solutions in 2020. Instana APM customers get unlimited use of production profiling, with no additional charges. Enabling the capabilities simply requires a change to the Instana configuration file. No application re-starts are required to turn profiling on or off.
“The complexity of today’s applications is directly related to the polyglot of application languages being used,” said Chris Farrell, APM and Observability Strategist at Instana. “Instana’s ability to extend the automatic capturing of profiles to Python and PHP gives dev teams the data they need to optimize performance solve code issues quickly.”
Instana’s production profiling solution differs from other profiling tools in that it is always on, designed and built with such low overhead that can always capture profiles on every production process. Those profiles are correlated with other Instana metrics, including application service levels, traces of all individual requests and full-stack infrastructure metrics. The company’s Unbounded Analytics™ allows anyone to dive into any layer and quickly isolate and fix problems when they occur.
Instana’s Enterprise Observability Platform, powered by automated Application Performance Monitoring, discovers and maps all services, infrastructure and their inter-dependencies automatically. Instana ingests all observability metrics, traces each request, profiles every process and updates application dependency maps in real time to deliver the context and actionable feedback needed by Dev+Ops to optimize application performance, enable innovation and mitigate risk to help them add value and efficiency to the pipeline.
Instana’s continuous profiling for PHP and Python, as well as Java and Go, are available today in all Instana solutions, including their SaaS and on-prem versions. Learn more at https://instana.com/profiling.
