Beginning today, no invitation is required to register a Tracelytics account and start tracing. If that’s all you needed to read, click here to sign up! In just minutes, you’ll be tracing requests, getting unparalleled insight, and solving problems.
There’s also a few new features we’ve introduced and changes we’ll be rolling out over the next few weeks. Here’s a quick overview:
Trace Cap Enforcement
We price our service per-trace because we believe your visibility shouldn’t be limited by per-host fees, but rather provided on a pay-as-you-go basis–just like cloud infrastructure. Deploy the Tracelytics agents across your entire infrastructure and only pay for the actual volume of traces you consume.
Beginning March 15th, we’ll be enforcing limits on traces per month according to the plan you’re subscribed to. This means that after your monthly allotment of traces, plus a grace window, your account will stop processing new data until the end of your billing month. You won’t be cut off from the data–you will still have access to the traces processed up until the cutoff–but the data will no longer be live.
To help make this a smooth transition, we’re providing several new ways to be updated on trace consumption. A meter in the app will keep track of traces used, and you’ll be automatically warned (via email) if you’re getting close to the limit or exceeding it. Finally, as mentioned above, this is a soft limit: we’ll process a few extra traces for users that are only slightly over.
Email as Login
No more remembering service-specific usernames! Just use the email you registered with to log in to your Tracelytics account(s).
You don’t need to be logged into Tracelytics every minute of the day to stay on top of your site’s performance. With alerts, set up latency constraints and be notified when your app is in violation. We’ll take care of the math to make sure it’s not just a fluke triggering the alert. Coming soon: alerting on machine metrics!
Ever wondered how your app performs for logged in vs logged out users? Browsers vs web crawlers? User type A vs user type B? With partitions, you can segment data in Tracelytics to reflect the populations you want to get insight on.
And Lastly: A Big Thanks!
It’s important to thank our beta and early-adopter users who helped make Tracelytics what it is today–you guys rock! The feedback isn’t over; we’re always looking to hear your thoughts.
