Optimizing Gatsby Build Performance with Observability
Using Gatsby to deliver large websites can speed up end users’ experiences. However, as those projects scale, many development teams are slowed down by long build times.
What if we could give developers more (easily accessible) visibility into the build process? Learn how the New Relic team built a plugin that provides instant observability into the entire Gatsby build process, exporting vital telemetry data from within the belly of the beast. With events, metrics, logs, and traces, we are able to contextualize and identify performance issues within our plugins, 3rd party APIs, and other parts of our website.
Join us as we talk about the trials and tribulations of leveraging observability to optimize our Docs site for better, faster, (stronger?) build times and find bottlenecks in the development process.
