What is Catchpoint Tracing?

Catchpoint Tracing solves the problem of complex, large, distributed environments having an impact on your customer’s digital experience. The Catchpoint platform extends Internet Performance Monitoring’s (IPM) outside-in perspective all the way through to tracing request journeys through the application stack. With detailed user experience and distributed tracing data in the same platform, gain a holistic, end-to-end view with analytics and drill-down, all without missing a beat.

Diagnose application errors or performance bottlenecks in seconds

As cloud-native became synonymous with complexity and distribution headaches, the need for tracing became a new way to gain end-to-end application visibility into every interaction to maintain resilience. With hundreds, thousands, or more application components spanning different architecture types and geographies, an Internet-centric approach to tracing gives businesses and practitioners the 360-degree visibility they need to deliver fast, resilient experiences – regardless of complexity, size, or distribution.

Power business-level observability

IT capabilities need to be observable through a business lens. Teams now need to include critical business KPI and digital experience-based signals into their observability frameworks. And since most issues occur on the front end, IPM data is the single source of truth across teams.

Support for OpenTelemetry

Integrate to large observability frameworks with OpenTelemetry compliance.

Use popular languages

Out of the box metrics and support for popular languages like .NET, Python, JavaScript, Node JS, or Java.

Easy implementation

Automatic instrumentation without touching a line of code. Effortlessly integrate with Internet Stack telemetry.
