Announcing Opbeat for Node.js

Since the launch of our in-depth performance metrics, we’ve been receiving an increasing number of requests to support additional languages, and finally it’s time to take the big step. After many months of hard work, we’re thrilled to open Opbeat to our first additional language, and announce our Opbeat for Node.js private beta!

Announcing Opbeat for Node.js

For months, we’ve secretly been hard at work on Opbeat for Node.js. And we didn’t cut any corners. We’ve implemented full support, meaning not just error logging, but also in-depth performance metrics. Mad science stuff!

In other words, we’ve built the best application monitoring product for Node.js developers.

Here’s the key features:

  • Response time distribution.
    See exactly how slow responses differ from fast responses.
  • Complete activity breakdown of how your app spend its time.
    The breakdown includes SQL queries, MongoDB queries, http requests to other services, cache calls, etc.
  • Faster debugging with auto-assigned errors.
    Our code integration automatically maps production issues to the code author(s).
  • Lightweight
    The module runs in production with minimal impact on performance.
  • iOS & Android apps
    Get alerts and check in on your app’s performance when AFK.

And here’s what it looks like in action:

The beta is fully featured, but for the moment also strictly limited private beta. We’ll be doing a slow roll-out to make sure everything goes smoothly, so make sure you sign up early at https://opbeat.com/nodejs

Node.js road trip from NY to SF

We’re on a road trip to share the good news and get feedback from the community.

We’ve got stellar speakers (@mafintosh and @wa7son, to name a few) at the meetups, and good people and demos at the Nodevember booth. Hope you can drop by and say hi - and skip the invite queue!
