Gain end-to-end visibility into application performance with Site24x7 Node.js application monitoring
Analyze application response time.
Track the response time of your applications and promptly identify issues. Since Node.js applications are single-threaded, a slight hiccup in one request may slow down another, which could negatively impact your application's response time.
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.
Identify the root cause of errors and exceptions, and debug them with ease. By default, Node.js libraries only show you an error's stack trace up to the current event loop along with the event type, but with APM Insight, you can track an error's entire sequence.
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.
Analyze code to find wrong elements
- Analyze your Node.js application down to the code level with precise timestamps within seconds.
- View the execution time of a specific method call.
- Gain a comprehensive view of a list of the slowest method calls with details on the duration, count, and percentage of the total time taken.
Understand end user behavior
Understand the end-user behavior of your Node.js applications across various geographies with a comprehensive dashboard. Integrate real user monitoring (RUM) with Node.js APM and drastically improve the front-end performance of your application.
Minimize app downtime
Identify errors in real time and view the top exceptions thrown by various components of your application to reduce the downtime experienced by your users. Get a comprehensive view of your top exceptions and errors, recent exception traces, list of error codes, and exception and error count in your Node.js application.
With Site24x7's Node.js application monitoring solution, you can start monitoring your Node.js application in real time within minutes. With the help of AI-powered alerts, you can troubleshoot application performance issues before they affect your applications across various distributed environments.
Supported Components and Frameworks
The Site24x7 Node.js performance monitoring tool supports various components and frameworks:
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
What is Node.js monitoring?
Monitoring Node.js applications entails keeping an eye on their availability and performance. Node.js monitoring relies on the basic principles of Application performance monitoring (APM), where key performance metrics such as application availability, error rates, I/O call performance, and response times are captured with the help of a 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.
What should be monitored in your Node.js application?
To best optimize the performance of your Node.js application, it is vital to monitor a few key components like the request rate to monitor and analyze incoming traffic to your application, application availability to determine uptime, resource usage, and CPU memory usage to effectively manage resources and lower cost, system health, and downtime, error rates to alert developers on recurring errors, latency to increase the time spent by customers on your application, and log management to help with effective troubleshooting of errors.
What are the best practices for Node.js monitoring?
To best monitor your Node.js applications, it is crucial to adhere to the following best practices:
- Assess your application and come up with a list of high-priority or critical business transactions that need to be monitored.
- Set up alerts based on the criticality of a situation.
- Correlate the right alerts with the right person or department.
- Ensure that your performance monitoring vendor has the right support system to best help you in case of emergencies.
