The Importance of Scala Performance Monitoring

If you are creating a website, web application or other web pages, you will likely need to do some coding. While some simpler alternatives do exist, coding is a necessity for many types of businesses, sites, and applications. There are many different programming languages out there that people use, with Scala being among the most popular.

While it would be nice if we could just code our app or site once and it would run perfectly for the rest of the time, that isn’t the case. We need to be sure to monitor the performance of our apps to ensure they are running correctly and not experiencing any hiccups that could affect your business or end-users alike.

Monitoring the performance of your applications is of the utmost importance to your business. Without performance monitoring, you run the risk of missing potential issues or problems with your code that could have easily been discovered and fixed in minutes if your business monitored the apps and code. This issues could ultimately leak into the user experience and could potentially cause some downtime, which can be extremely costly to businesses.

Now that you know about the importance of performance monitoring for your business, app, or site, what are the solutions available to you? If that is a question you are asking yourself, you have come to the right place. This article is going to take a look at some of the best solutions out there for Scala performance monitoring.


Web applications created with Scala can sometimes have frustrating issues and mysterious problems that you might not quite know the origins of. If those are problems you find yourself dealing with, AppDynamics has a solution for you. The AppDynamics platform will provide you with a real-time look at how your Scala apps are performing.

They enable you to find the root causes of various issues in seconds, without the need for a ton of manual monitoring or overhead. Other benefits of using this solution are lightning-quick troubleshooting, automatically visualizing tendencies and charts that will help you to understand the health of your apps.


Another solid solution for monitoring Scala performance is Dynatrace. Dynatrace is capable of detecting transactions from end to end and can actually show and visualize service requests, which is a great feature. Dynatrace is also able to show where (and how) your Scala app consumes CPU, and the platform can also learn the details of the architecture of your application.

The Dynatrace dashboard also gives you insight into a wide range of different performance metrics that are important to see and keep tabs on. Dynatrace also works incredibly quickly in only a few minutes to get you up to speed on the health of your Scala apps.


AppOptics is one of the most powerful yet simple options out there for monitoring Scala performance. You can set it up in minutes, and the platform can illustrate your app’s performance in real-time, with dashboards that show a variety of important metrics.

The platform also makes it easy to go from simple and visualized trends to deep, code-level analysis. The insights it provides can be very helpful for your business, and the platform features both out-of-the-box dashboards, or you are free to create and customize your own.


Not only does OverOps help you to monitor the performance of your Scala apps, but it can also help you truly understand the root causes of any issues you may be experiencing. The Scala monitoring within the platform can be seamlessly integrated with your workflow and has a very low network and storage overhead.

It runs extremely lightweight and should only use about 1% CPU. The platform is also incredibly secure and can install in only a few minutes. It is a beneficial tool with several different benefits that all aim to help you keep your Scala app’s performance in tip-top shape.

In conclusion, we hope that this article has helped you understand how important performance monitoring is for Scala and any other programming language that you might find yourself using. While the performance monitoring solutions offered up in this article are not the only ones available, they are among the best and most popular options.
