Scout vs TraceView: What are the differences?

What is Scout? Application Monitoring that Developers Love. Scout is application monitoring that points developers right to the source of problems: N+1 database queries, memory bloat, performance trends, and more Scout eliminates much of the investigation part when performance woes occur. .

What is TraceView? Ridiculously Detailed Application Monitoring. Expose everything, from the webserver to database, cache and API calls. The core technology is based on X-Trace, a distributed tracing framework that’s served as the inspiration for companies like Google and Twitter.

Scout and TraceView can be primarily classified as "Performance Monitoring" tools.

Some of the features offered by Scout are:

  • Monitors Ruby & Elixir apps with more languages to come
  • Easy install
  • Detailed transaction traces

On the other hand, TraceView provides the following key features:

  • Track every machine involved in a transaction and identify bottlenecks in a single click.
  • Isolate interesting calls and drill down to the line of code and machine it ran on.
  • Tie together code and infrastructure metrics with database, service, and cache calls, all in the context of a single transaction.

"Easy setup" is the top reason why over 9 developers like Scout, while over 2 developers mention "The heatmap helped me isolate DB related issues" as the leading cause for choosing TraceView.
