Comprehensive Node.js application performance monitoring

Analyze application response time.

Ensure optimal application response time with a powerful Node.js monitoring tool. Track and resolve issues promptly, as even a slight hiccup in one request can impact the response time of your single-threaded Node.js applications.

Keep track of triggered events.

Track your triggered events and their sequences. Monitor the time taken for an entire event loop to occur, and assess its complete performance.

Find the root cause of errors.

Uncover the root cause of errors effortlessly. While standard Node.js libraries typically provide only the error's stack trace within the current event loop and its event type, the Site24x7 APM Insight allows you to trace the complete sequence of errors, simplifying the debugging process.

Monitor the performance of I/O events.

Monitor the performance of asynchronous I/O calls. Analyze the time it takes for an I/O call to go from start to completion, and optimize your application performance.

Performance monitoring for Node.js applications

With Site24x7's APM Insight tool, you can monitor pivotal information such as application availability, uptime and downtime, resource usage, systems health, and latency to enhance the performance of your Node.js application.

How does the Node.js monitoring tool work?

Node.js monitoring works by adding code to your application which will then trace the execution of the code and report back on it. To start monitoring your Node.js application, installing a monitoring agent like the Node.js agent in the application server is essential. The Node.js agent automatically captures incoming web requests like http, https, and http2. Additionally, use custom instrumentation APIs to analyze specific transactions or code blocks in your Node.js application, adding a more detailed perspective to your monitoring experience.

Overview of Node.js monitoring

1. What is Node.js monitoring?

Node.js monitoring is the process of actively tracking the availability and performance of your Node.js applications. It uses the fundamental principles of Application Performance Monitoring (APM), such as capturing crucial performance metrics including the application's availability, error rates, the performance of I/O calls, and response times, all captured using a dedicated Node.js monitoring agent. This information helps developers identify and troubleshoot any errors occurring in your Node.js application with ease, enhancing the end-user experience over time.

Effective monitoring of your Node.js application involves several key components. These include the request rate for traffic analysis, application availability for uptime checking, resource and CPU memory usage for resource management, and system health to anticipate potential issues. Also, tracking error rates alerts developers to recurrent errors, while monitoring latency improves user experience. Lastly, efficient log management aids in troubleshooting errors effectively.

Effective monitoring of your Node.js applications requires adherence to key best practices to ensure optimal performance and quick resolution of any issues. These recommended steps help you focus on the critical aspects of your application and ensure a robust support system for unforeseen situations:

  • Identify and list high-priority business transactions within your application that need vigilant monitoring.
  • Configure alerts based on the severity of potential situations to ensure a prompt response.
  • Assign the right alerts to the appropriate person or department who can address the issues effectively.
  • Select a performance monitoring vendor that provides a reliable support system, ready to assist you in times of emergencies.

Site24x7's Node.js performance monitoring tool provides all the standard features of our application monitoring tool and in-depth insight into events and metrics that are unique to a Node.js application. For example, our tool aids in monitoring the time taken by asynchronous I/O calls, root cause analysis, and error tracing down to the service level. It gives valuable AI-powered alerts that help optimize the performance of your application. Additionally, you can combine it with our real user monitoring (RUM) tool to give you a 360-degree view of your application's performance.
