Gem Install and Get Answers

With a simple gem install, you can ask questions out of the box like:

  • Which controllers and actions are the slowest to return in my app?
  • If we look at the 3rd-slowest controller/action pair, are there specific users experiencing the worst latency?
  • Which routes spend the most time making database calls? What are the commonalities among the slowest-rendering pages in my app?
  • Which users have seen that “Failed to save” flash error message the most lately? What other errors have they run into?
  • Is there a disproportionate number of non-200 responses for a particular controller? Action? Path?
