Modern applications behave quite differently in production when compared to development or testing environments. Outlier requests, edge-case behaviors, and request spikes can all impact application performance in unexpected ways.

This workshop will show you how to diagnose production CPU performance problems in your applications. By using Continuous Profiler, you will be able to quickly uncover costly bugs and identify improvements that will help enhance your end-user experience and reduce your infrastructure bill.

In this workshop, you will instrument an application with Datadog APM and Continuous Profiler and learn how and when to use these tools to diagnose issues. You will learn how to apply a performance diagnostic methodology to diagnose a CPU performance issue—and how to utilize profiling to the fullest by leveraging comparisons, different profile types, and other features.
