Monitoring Heroku apps with Atatus

Heroku was developed by James Lindenbaum, Adam Wiggins and Orion Henry to provide services, workflows and polyglot support to enhance developer productivity. Heroku is a container-based cloud Platform as a Service (PAAS). With Heroku, developers can deploy, manage and scale modern applications. Initially, Heroku supported only Ruby but later it added support for Java, Node.js, Python, PHP etc.

Monitoring applications help you in finding the issues earlier and enables you to fix the issues as soon as possible. By monitoring applications constantly, you can get regular feedback on how your application in Heroku environment works. This could not be done manually each time since humans are prone to make errors. That's why monitoring tools are built to automate the entire process to detect the errors faster and to know the uptime and downtime of your systems which helps in optimizing the applications

Success does not consist in never making mistakes but in never making the same one a second time - By George Bernard Shaw

Making mistakes are fine but repeating them while developing your application would decelerate your productivity which causes severe consequences in your business.

There are two most important factors in the app's performance - Speed and Throughput. Speed is about how fast your application responds for any user's request and throughput is about handling the simultaneous requests at the same time. If any one of these slows down your application, the performance will get affected which in turn affects your business revenue.
