Announcing MySQL tracing for Node.js

We’re happy to announce MySQL support for our Node.js stack. We now support MySQL, PostgreSQL and MongoDB out of the box.

MySQL example

If you are using MySQL in your Node.js application simply upgrade your opbeat npm dependency. You’ll now see detailed traces for each MySQL query performed during a transaction.

This allows you to easily discover database bottlenecks, see long running queries, view the SQL source code and get insights into where in your code slow queries are performed.

You can find a detailed list of supported modules in this article.
