Enhancing Application Quality & Performance with Rakuten SixthSense
By 2027, a whopping 75% of organizations are expected to embrace DevOps as their weapon of choice for streamlined application delivery* (Gartner). With a growing need for real-time insights into the reliability, efficiency and dynamics of applications and their underlying infrastructure, observability is now critical to DevOps workflows. This integration includes a vigilant approach to monitoring critical parameters such as response times, error rates and distributed traces during development, to avoid performance issues and outages in production.
Rakuten SixthSense empowers DevOps teams with seamless integration and shift-left observability, providing real-time insights into application health and behaviours for proactive issue resolution throughout the software development lifecycle.
Seamlessly instrument code and agents with detailed logging statements, establishing a comprehensive observability framework.
Integrate custom metrics and tracing code proficiently using Rakuten SixthSense agents, OpenTelemetry or popular tools.
Effectively implement assertions to validate log outputs and metric values under diverse scenarios during performance
Leverage proficient code profiling to conduct meticulous static code analysis, unearthing latent anomalies and vulnerabilities.
Skilfully gather Thread stack information, encompassing parent and child levels, along with their respective durations and dump counts.
