FAQ on PHP Application Performance Monitoring

What is PHP performance monitoring?

The PHP performance monitoring tool helps developers to optimize the PHP server performance.

A good PHP APM solution answers the following two questions:

  1. Is an application broken or slow?
  2. What is issue that's causing the application broken or slow?

You can easily use application performance monitoring tools to answer, detect and resolve the above issues before they could impact the end users.

How to monitor a PHP app?

In general, there are two types of monitoring:

  1. Black-box monitoring - It allows you can monitor the external behaviour of your system such as CPU usage, disk usage, memory usage, load averages etc..
  2. White-box monitoring - It allows you to keep an eye on the applications running on your server. It requires an agent to enable white-box monitoring.
Why do we need an PHP performance monitoring tool?

Every organization should have a well-implemented PHP APM solution, which allows DevOps teams (and the organization as a whole) to resolve issues and performance bottlenecks efficiently and reduce Mean Time To Resolution (MTTR). This has a substantial impact on the bottom line of the business.

Now organizations do not have to deal with the unnecessary work involved in maintaining an extensive software analysis group.

How to choose the right application performance monitoring tool?

Your PHP performance monitoring tools should be easy to use, offer actionable insights, and be able to:

  1. Manage applications in the language(s) your apps use
  2. Track performance at the code level
  3. Keep an eye on end-user experiences
  4. Make use of artificial intelligence
  5. The ability to monitor the entire infrastructure
  6. Provides information that connects app performance metrics to business outcomes.
