With Sentry, developers and product owners can more effectively identify errors, solve performance issues, and optimize code health to protect a user’s product experience. Sentry now supports Google Web Vitals and provides agentless frontend performance monitoring for serverless, PHP, Node, and Ruby-based applications.
Sentry has also added a new view to help developers see the most improved and most regressed transactions called Trends. It shows how releases over time positively or negatively impact the performance of an application over time.
Sentry Performance Monitoring adds support for the Google-lead standard, Web Vitals, which defines “slow” based on how fast a site presents UI objects in a given viewport.
Coupling Web Vitals with transaction data in Sentry, developers can quickly see how a slow transaction is impacting the user experience, how often the issue is encountered, and other UI objects are not responding quickly.
Additionally, when investigating slow transactions, developers can decide with confidence when certain API calls should be made because Sentry highlights which one of four Web Vitals needs to be improved at the transaction level.
