Stackify is thrilled to announce our latest release, Linux Agent 2.0 and Java APM 1.15. We think you’ll be excited about this release, too, and here are just a few reasons why.
What’s New in Our Linux Agent 2.0 and Java APM Release?

- Apt and Yum support for agent installation and update:
- sudo apt-get install stackify-agent
- sudo yum install stackify-agent
- Agent installation on EBS

- Oracle WebLogic (12.x)
- IBM WebSphere (8.x, 9.x, Liberty)
- Apache TomEE (1.7.x, 7.0.x)
Everything You Already Love About Retrace
You’ll get everything you already know and love about Retrace; we’ve just made agent installation a bit more seamless and added support for additional application servers. After all, our goal is for Retrace to be easy to install and use. It works out of the box with your stack with automatic instrumentation of all popular application frameworks, dependencies, and other common services, including:
- Amazon and AWS libraries
- Various .NET and Java frameworks
- NoSQL such as MongoDB and Elasticsearch
- Multiple SQL databases
- Caching including Redis, memcached, and more
That means taking advantage of Retrace’s proven ability to give you insights not only on how your apps are performing but also why transactions are slow and failing – now when you need them most, not when it’s already too late.
With Retrace, you can manage all of your applications, quickly identify why your app is having performance problems (rather than just recognizing that a problem exists without further insights into the where, how, and why), identify what web requests are most frequent and which requests take the most time, which web requests are most impacted by dependencies such as SQL or Elasticsearch, and more. Plus, Retrace gives you:
- Code-level performance tracking (not just any code profiler – Prefix!)
- SQL query performance reporting
- Robust error tracking and monitoring
- Integrated log searching
- Customizable method-level profiling
- And much more!
It’s not just the many great APM features but the combination of APM, errors and logs, metrics and monitoring that make Retrace an incredibly powerful tool for your dev toolkit. In fact, Retrace is the only developer tool that combines APM, application and server logging, error tracking and monitoring, and server, application and custom metrics into a single suite of tools. It’s like giving your apps (and you) an unfair advantage, and at an unbelievably low cost – Retrace starts at just $10 per month for QA and pre-production servers and just $25 to $50 per month for production servers. In other words, elite developer tools at a budget price any developer can afford.
