Prefix is a native profiling application. It takes the same powerful but lightweight profiling that we offer on your production servers with Retrace and makes it available while you are writing and testing your code on your development workstation.

What can I do with Prefix?

Prefix runs in the background and listens for requests while you are running your applications. It captures all of the web requests and provides detailed traces or snapshots of what the requests did.

  • Troubleshoot slow web requests
  • Find slow SQL queries
  • Find hidden exceptions
  • Look for bad coding patterns like N+1 database queries

Prefix Requests

  • Tail logs & errors in a dedicated streaming feed
  • View traces directly from your logs & errors
