NodeSource is excited to announce a new collaboration with AppDynamics, a leading application intelligence product. With this integration, users can now access the advanced Node.js metrics that only N|Solid provides, like those pertaining to asynchronous activity and the Node.js event loop, directly from the AppDynamics dashboard.
AppDynamics has supported monitoring of Node.js since 2014; it remains a cornerstone of their unified monitoring offering, which provides visibility into end-to-end transactions to provide a full view of a user’s journey through an application.
When the AppDynamics Node.js agent is installed on a NodeSource N|Solid runtime, it automatically collects additional metrics provided by N|Solid and makes them available in the AppDynamics controller.
Systems such as DataDog, Graphite (for on-prem environments), AWS CloudWatch, and Google Stackdriver (for cloud environments) rely on statsd, a popular network daemon, to collect and aggregate metrics sent over UDP. By dispatching metrics to statsd, N|Solid now offers an easy way to deliver a rich variety of Node application metrics directly to your organization's preferred monitoring, aggregation, or reporting platform.
The N|Solid runtime is a drop-in replacement for open source Node which offers a rich set of features built to meet the needs of mission-critical production environments. In addition to enhanced security features, N|Solid provides live instrumentation of system health and stability—without any changes to existing application code.
Teams can integrate with existing infrastructure and workflows seamlessly with a simple configuration change, while still taking advantage of unique N|Solid features like snapshots, application profiles, and threshold-based alerting.
Production threshold and process monitoring for your Node applications provide understanding of application issues.
Built-in CPU profiling and heap snapshots allow for instant analysis and swift resolution of application-threatening issues.
Package security monitoring with continuous vulnerability scanning, policy-based rules to configure custom security, and memory-sterilizing zero-fill memory allocation.
Drop-in runtime replacement for the Node.js LTS includes 24x7 Enterprise-grade support, requires zero code modification and no lock in.
