In this article, I’ll show how we can profile a Node app using both the built-in profiler and Raygun APM for Node.js. I’ll also provide some tips for optimizing the performance of Node.js applications.
Node has a high-quality profiler built into the Node debugger. We can enable it by passing the
--inspect flag when running an application.
Here is a sample application we can use to test out the Node.js profiler. It includes both a fast route that only sends a response and a slow route that loops, allocates, and sleeps.
