By on

According to a recent press release, “Instana, the leading provider of real-time application performance management (APM) solutions for cloud-native microservice applications, today announced a set of enhanced troubleshooting and monitoring capabilities for developers with new always-on production profiling solutions for Node.js and Go applications, as well as automatic tracing of Python Serverless functions running on AWS Lambda. ‘As companies continue to accelerate their development pipelines, developers are more critical to the overall delivery cycle, as evidenced by the large number of Instana users from development organizations,’ said Chris Farrell, Instana Technical Director and APM Strategist. ‘Instana’s always-on profiling allows any service owner to have code-level visibility at the exact time a problem occurred’.”

The release continues, “Instana’s new profiling functionality for Node.js and Go, available for free to all Instana APM users, automatically captures profiles for every process in production without impacting resource overhead or application performance. Like other performance entities inside Instana’s solutions, profiles are available to Instana’s Unbounded Analytics™ engine, allowing patterns across multiple profiles to be discovered and analyzed collaboratively. In addition to the new profiling capabilities, Instana also extended its unique AutoTrace™ features to automatically trace Python functions on Lambda AWS. The new native tracing capability collects a trace for every request independent of X-Ray, all without code modifications.”
