Step Four - Monitoring
With the goal of helping you to spend as much time developing your application as possible, monitoring seeks to save time by:
- Knowing at-a-glance that everything is working through a clean but informative interface
- If something isn't working, learning as much about the issue as early as possible
- Providing an organized workspace to resolve issues quickly and with minimal downtime
Customizing a View
On both the Requests and Events tabs, you'll see a host of filtering options to dial in the specific information useful to your use case.
After selecting and configuring such filters as Date, Request, Sources, Status (and more!), you'll be prompted to Apply Filters to update the current output. From here, you'll also be able to select Save View to add a shortcut to the sidebar for easy access to this custom view quickly in the future.
Also available on the Requests and Events tabs is the Histogram tool. The histogram gives you a bird's-eye view of events, with the ability to quickly filter the output down to any areas of interest.
You can click the interval dropdown above the histogram to specify a known range, or simply click and drag along the histogram and click Apply to zoom in on the area of interest.
Now that we've gotten a handle on preventing and finding issues with our integration, the last thing we need is the knowledge to fix errors once they've been located.
