What is Plumbr?
Plumbr is a Java performance monitoring solution that tracks end user experience and links poor user experience with an actual root cause in source code. Thus, the main benefit of Plumbr is measured in the reduced time it takes to find and fix performance issues.
The lengthy cycle of “detect – evaluate impact – try to reproduce – gather evidence – link evidence to source code” is eliminated completely thanks to Plumbr exposing end-to-end transparency to application performance.
Conceptually, Plumbr works by tracking incoming transactions and monitoring such transactions for performance. When performance is not sufficient, Plumbr exposes the root cause in the source code or configuration that causes the performance degradation.
