I closely work with the tech leads and engineering managers for the dev requirements. One of the major challenge they faced was not able to. test the application properly before production. Blackfire.io has helped address that issue by allowing proactive testing of applications before releasing on the production environment. It also provides actionable insights to improve code beforehand and saves time for the engineering team post any development.
  • Generate actionable insights to improve code by integrating with the development softwares
  • Ensure optimal performance and user experience for web applications
  • Live monitoring of the production environment to highlight any major issues and load time delays
  • They count same API endpoint AND same method (e.g. POST, OPTIONS, GET etc) as different profiles
  • Customer service needs a lot of improvement
  • The documentation can be a bit more detailed to remove any scope of doubts
Blackfire.io is super helpful in allowing proactive testing of applications before releasing on the production environment.
Blackfire.io provides actionable insights to improve code proactively by integration with the development software.
Also tracks the live production environment and is able to highlight any loading issues or unusual bounce rates.
Blackfire.io also monitors HTTP requests and SQL queries which again help improve efficiency for developers and reduce development time.
  • Actionable insights to improve code
  • Monitor live code to highlight any issues and high load times
  • Helps visualise the web application performance as perceived by the end users
  • Reduce in bugs by 50%, more happy customers
  • 2x decrease in load time for the website
  • 100% performance validation before production release
The pricing offered by blackfire.io was highly competitive and customisable as we opted for pay per use pricing model. Initial setup was very easy. The support team provided us with the detailed demo of the product and helped with the initial integration and setup. We already had tried our free version as well and the results looked good. So opted for blackfire.io

In our organization blackfire.io is used within our development team in order to test code and expose any performance issues before go live and while in production. This tool is used to analyze any bottlenecks in performance and call out any lackluster coding patterns that could ultimately lead to a bad roll out.
  • Provide details on processes eating up valuable server resources
  • Alert against bottlenecks and find bottlenecks
  • Performs load tests in code before moving to production environments
  • blackfire.io can improve on their platform UI making the product easier to read and use
  • Improve on reporting issues in a more streamlined approach with more debugging tools
  • They could provide more support and documentation to those not aware of how to configure the tool.
blackfire.io is best suited for any company that has a development team managing code releases into different environments. This tool is crucial in cases where there are codebase changes or upgrades and it really helps in load testing and code validity. With every new codebase release there could be a risk of how it affects the infrastructure supporting it so blackfire.io helps report on those metrics.
  • Performance testing in our non production environments.
  • Profiling code while it runs to give us metrics on bottlenecks
  • Real time monitoring to detect any performance issues as they happen
  • The positive impact that blackfire.io gives to us is that we can see when our infrastructure is suffering due to codebase changes.
  • We can be proactive in assessing if codebase changes will affect performance of our servers
  • We can also proactively predict how load will be managed during times of high traffic to our site and understand how our code will react to it.
blackfire.io definitely provides an edge over competing products such as Datadog due to the level of monitoring and analysis it provides. Datadog is a great tool however when evaluating and catching inefficiencies in lower non production environments, blackfire.io provides a level of reporting that were did not find any competing products.
