My thanks to New Relic for sponsoring this week’s DF RSS feed. New Relic provides state-of-the-art web app performance measurement and monitoring tools. They make it really easy to get started: sign up, install their agent tool, start collecting data, and boom, you’ve got x-ray vision into your app. New Relic works with Ruby, PHP, Python, Java, and .NET. Among their happy customers: GitHub, Shopify, Groupon, and Nike.
Free sign up, no credit card required, no sales calls, no lengthy installation of software. You can be up and running in under five minutes. They’ve even got a special deal for Daring Fireball readers, including a special t-shirt and two extra free weeks of service — that’s 30 days of great analytics data at no cost. If you’re a web developer, you’re nuts if you don’t check them out.
