Pros Trust Scout
How is your app performing for your most important customers? Is one database node responsible for more slow requests? Go beyond your application code to gain the context around what's slow.
Save time tracking down complicated performance problems: Scout overlays `git blame` data fetched from Github over slow lines-of-code so you can see the developers and commit dates behind bottlenecks.
Engineered for high-throughput, mission-critical apps, Scout uses just a portion of the overhead of other monitoring agents. See for yourself: review our open-source benchmarks.
You can run Scout alongside existing solutions without worry of conflicts.
You could use New Relic for application monitoring.
You aren't using a newer PaaS or containerized deployment environment, aren't interested primarily in time-to-resolution, and don't mind pushy sales tactics.
We were New Relic customers for several years, but as the service evolved, new features were added that added bloat and actually made it more difficut to identify the root cause of issues.
Rather than building a do-everything solution, our customers have told us they want a solution that relentlessly focuses on tying performance problems to a line-of-code and the developer most familar with it. New Relic is a decade-old product: it's difficult to change course and incorporate the dramatic advances in code-level insights available today in Scout.
