Analytics | Scout

Scout is an application management tool that helps you monitor, troubleshoot, and tune your production web apps 24x7. If you signup for a Scout account, you can sync performance data from that account with Blitz load tests and view metrics such as CPU and Memory overlaid on the Blitz response time graph.

To set up the sync, head over to Blitz Settings and click the Plugins tab to enter the account ID and API key for your Scout account (we'll also prompt you to select default apps for rush reports). Then just complete a rush against your app and select a Scout metric to overlay it on the Blitz response time chart.

Short Rushes

Scout gathers app metrics with 1 minute granularity. Because the free Blitz plan limits rushes to 1 minute, the response time chart displays only summary information for each of the Scout metrics.

Long Rushes

When you switch to a paid plan on Blitz you can rush for more than 1 minute — the higher the paid plan, the longer you can rush. Longer rushes show finer granularity for Scout metrics so you can clearly see how CPU Usage and Memory Usage map to the number of concurrent users on your app.
