The AppSignal integration for Rails works by tracking exceptions and performance in requests. When an error occurs in a controller during a request AppSignal will report it. Performance issues will be based on the duration of a request and create a timeline of events detailing which parts of the application took the longest.
By default AppSignal does not report errors that occur during the start/boot of your application. To do get notified when these errors occur, adding the following to your
config.ru file, around the line that requires the
1 2 3 4 5 6 7
# config.ru begin require ::File.expand_path("../config/environment", __FILE__) rescue Exception => error Appsignal.send_error(error) raise end
The errors that occur here will not be grouped under an incident with an action name.
AppSignal supports ActiveJob for several background job libraries, such as Sidekiq. Please see the full list of Ruby library integrations for more details.
