Blackfire Monitoring Launches

By Christophe Dujarric, on Mar 19, 2021

The whole team is thrilled to launch the Early Bird access to Blackfire Monitoring 🚀 🎉

Production Monitoring for Actionable Insights

Blackfire Monitoring is not your standard “APM”. As it is fully integrated with Blackfire’s Profiler (it actually relies on the same software stack), it enables to get the best of the two worlds:

  • The monitoring part enables you to identify when an issue occurs or when the performance is degrading
  • The profiling part enables you to find the root cause of the issues

And of course, Blackfire’s secret sauce gives you the Recommendations.

Blackfire isn’t just telling you that something is wrong somewhere. It gives you the keys to fixing issues.

The Early Bird period is for us the occasion to release new key features and fine-tune existing ones. Check our docs regularly to find updates!

Early Bird Pricing

Blackfire Monitoring Early Bird will be priced with a monthly Traces Quota. Every million traces will cost 40€/month. A Trace is a PHP request which has been monitored by Blackfire.

Key features:

  • you can configure the monitoring sample rate and balance data granularity and costs
  • you can temporarily top-up your traces quota on a given month if you have unusual traffic or need granularity

The Early Bird launch is for now reserved for Premium and Enterprise subscribers. The pricing may change when the Early Bird access is over. Subscribe now!

Note: Blackfire Monitoring works with PHP 7+ on Linux servers and is still in Beta for Python. Reach out to us if you would like more information.

Happy Monitoring!
