Production Debugging

Software is being developed at breathtaking scale and breakneck speeds, and with unprecedented levels of complexity. No applications are truly bug-free when deployed to production. Yet with today’s production infrastructures, debugging requires painstaking, iterative code-restart-redeploy cycles that take hours at best, and weeks or even months for complex applications.

Rookout dramatically cuts debugging time by enabling live data collection with just a few clicks, with no advance planning.

Supported Technologies

Data Collection and Pipelining

Collect all types of data from production systems — from a specific variable, through metrics, to the entire stack. Insert Rookout non-breaking breakpoints in live code to select the data you need and define where it should go. Send data to the Rookout IDE-like interface to close the loop on a single page. Or direct it to monitoring, logging or alerting systems you already use, or any destination you choose.

Work at Scale

Focus team activity and enhance collaboration with Rookout Workspaces. Create flexible, targeted debugging environments by selecting microservice instances, groups of servers and other elements, up to full staging or production environments. Manage debugging activities with individualized Workspaces, or share Workspaces to enable simultaneous collaborative debugging from multiple machines.

Performance Protection

As a solution that runs on our customers’ production systems, Rookout is strictly committed to safeguarding performance in three critical ways.

  • Security is baked into all Rookout products, and maintained through rigorous internal security standards as well as third-party certifications.
  • Rookout requires no overhead, so it doesn’t interfere with application performance or negatively impact it in any way. In fact, adding a log line with Rookout is equivalent to deploying a new version that includes the line.
  • Rookout does not reduce the stability of applications or production systems.

Rookout Never Sleeps

Even if you’re being paged, just give Rookout a shout and we’ll be there for you.

We never stop your app, we always expedite your work.
