Plumbr now supports application versioning

February 28, 2020 by Ivo Mägi Filed under: Product Updates

Whenever you release a new version of your application/API, you can let Plumbr know about it. As a result, Plumbr will be able to show you how availability and performance metrics change across different versions of your application.

You will explicitly get answers to the following questions:

  • Is the application really slower after the last release, as my customers claim? By how much?
  • How much have the performance improvements shipped in the latest version improved the median and tail end latencies compared to the previous version?

All that you need to do in order to benefit from the versioning support is to configure the version within your Plumbr Agent configuration. Full instructions for how to achieve this are available in our manual, but it is as easy as the following Java-based example:

And thats it. After restarting the nodes with altered configuration, the traces in Plumbr contain the version tag. This tag is used to group together the traces from the specific versions which you can analyze for performance or availability changes.
