Introducing graph spike

Never Give Up: Redesigning APM Insight .NET agent

Posted on by


I am part of the APM Insight team a.k.a. application scientists (that’s how we’re referred within the team, and we pride over it) focusing on the .NET side of the agent.

We support monitoring of Java, .NET, PHP and Ruby web transactions.
