Péter Gömöri will give us a talk on XProf for our March event 😊
XPROF 2.0 - Evolution Of Tracing-Based Investigation
How do you introspect Erlang/Elixir production systems handling a large number of concurrent requests? There are certainly many ways. Peter will present an intuitive, visual debugging workflow with XProf through real-world examples.
XProf was originally created to hunt down performance issues. But actually, we don’t face serious performance problems every single day. So the second major release is focused to create a powerful query tool with which you can easily formulate questions about the system behaviour and get meaningful answers immediately.
Peter will show features we added and how he aims to make the tool modular (with a split architecture) and extensible (via a generalised command framework) to fit multiple setups and use-cases.
A bit about Péter
