Success of Blackfire and Continuos PHP performance monitoring at trivago


Published on

At trivago, we love measuring everything. Collecting metrics and making decisions based on them is natural to our engineers. We follow this workflow also with performance, which is key to succeed in the modern Internet. In this talk, we're going to describe how we integrated Blackfire profiling into the daily workflow of QA Engineers and Software Developers alike. How our own tooling around Blackfire has helped us to keep (and improve) performance over the last year. We will discuss the benefits of enforcing backend performance budgets. Also, we will explain our entire pipeline for PHP continuous monitoring.

  31. 31. @jorgelbgm Conclusions
  32. 32. @jorgelbgm • Detect performance bottlenecks before they’re deployed to production. • Enforce a backend performance budget to stop performance degradation over time. • Offer a common platform for PHP developers to discuss performance related issues. • Provides an easy syntax for writing/understanding the tests.
