…like so:

All of this is possible without manually starting an interaction via our API. Of course, you can always rename in-flight Fragment interactions if you so desire. Curious about the API? You'll find complete documentation here .

As always, we're eager to hear your feedback. If you'd like your favorite third-party library instrumented, just let us know over at New Relic Support .

…an action requiring that we fetch a remote resource: application invokes the appropriate platform API (e.g. XMLHttpRequest), the runtime serializes the request (e.g. translates it to a well-formed HTTP request) and passes the resulting byte buffer to the OS, which then fragments it into one or more TCP packets and finally passes the buffer to the link layer.

So far, so good, but what happens next? As you can guess, the answer depends on the properties of the current link layer in use …

If you are reading this post, you're DNS has successfully updated and you are viewing carpeaqua now hosted on Microsoft's Azure Web Sites service. As I wrote in Hurdles , the process of publishing this site is a 7-step process using Jekyll . I am in the process of trying to simplify that process, and one of the first things was moving to a new host.

Why Azure? Well, for one I'm a fan of the platform. Glassboard uses it extensively for managing its API, web app, and data.

tl;dr — Photos+ has a new home at Silver Pine Software . Elements has been discontinued due to lack of sales and so I can focus on Glassboard .

When I decided to take over Glassboard , I knew I was at the time biting off more than I could chew as a sole developer. Balancing a product that has three front-end clients, an API server, and tens of thousands of users while also working almost full-time as an iOS and Android contractor isn't easy. Add on top of that, my existing suite of products and it's a bit insane.

…overhead (the latter easily catching out people following the "just do a server-side API ", since the json may well generate in 50ms, but then the client-side computation takes a full second on the below-average device — doh!).

Level two, once reasonable efforts have been made to trim the fat around the X-Runtime itself, is getting some big numbers up on the board: Mean and the 90th percentile. Those really are great places to start. If your mean is an embarrassing 500ms+, …

…software which is impacted. An openly exposed service, which is typically a website or some form of API, can potentially cause the biggest impact for anyone. Even though we talk a lot about MySQL Server (and its variants), it will not be the primary concern for organizations following best practices and not exposing their MySQL server to the open Internet.

Second, if you take care of patching your operating system, this will take care of Percona Server, MariaDB or MySQL Server…

Yesterday (2014-04-08) at 22:39 UTC to 23:16 UTC, Hosted Enterprise Chef search API requests were returning 502 HTTP response codes. One of the "killer features" of using a Chef Server is the search capability, so I know many of our customers rely on that API. I'm sorry that the search API was not available.

Then, at 2014-04-09T03:55 UTC to 04:17 UTC, the search API began returning 500s again. This was deemed to only affect approximately 10% of the search requests, …
