Performance Monitoring Now Tracks Background Jobs

Now Airbrake Performance Monitoring automatically tracks your app’s background jobs. That’s right! Get direct insight into failure rates and durations all on your Performance dashboard. Correlate errors, performance issues, and job failures to identify and address problems fast.

What can I do with Background Job Tracking?

Now with Background Jobs Tracking, you can:

  • Gain more visibility into the performance of your applications’ background jobs
  • Identify jobs that are failing frequently
  • Link directly to the errors causing your jobs to fail
  • Identify slow performing jobs

What frameworks are supported?

Background Job Tracking is supported for Rails, Go, and Python apps for a bunch of different job processing libraries. 

  • Rails: Sidekiq, Resque, Sneakers, DelayedJob, ActiveJob, and Shoryuken
  • Python: Celery
  • Go: manual tracking support

We’ll be adding more languages and frameworks in the future. Let is know what you want to see!
