« Blackfire allowed us to: Enforce a backend performance budget to stop continuous performance degradation over time. Detect performance bottlenecks before they’re deployed to production. Offer a common platform for PHP developers to discuss performance related issues. »
Jorge Luis Betancourt - Software Engineer
Sales Enablement and Marketing Platform
« When we introduced Blackfire and started drawing some profiles on well-used calls, our developers eagerly started writing down hundreds of notes with possible improvements in our application stack. While other open source tools can also give some insight in the stackframes used in your application, Blackfire goes beyond this with a full insight on database, file I/O and CPU-bound operations, with a great UI that allows collaborating on measurements and findings. We immediately were able to identify root causes, and understood our application stack better. Furthermore, with the continuous integration capabilities, we are able to avoid making the same mistakes twice. In a lot of simple ways, the return on investment is simply off the charts. »
Maarten Mortier - CTO at Showpad.

Blackfire has taken our code quality to the next level. We really don’t know how we’ve survived without it. »

« At Liip we develop websites, platforms, interfaces, online shops, e-learning tools and apps for demanding audiences. We've been using Blackfire for a long time to monitor and improve one of our most complex projects. Without Blackfire, it would have taken a long time to clearly see where the bottlenecks are and it really saved us from a lot of potential headaches. Blackfire is also so much more user friendly than other tools we tried. »
Michelle Sanver - Senior Developer at Liip.

Moreover, we have been able to integrate blackfire.io in our continuous integration process to warn the team when the performances of a new code are degraded before the code hits the production. This kind of live and pro active analysis is a key asset for Maisons du Monde to tune its system and cope with its huge traffic growth. »
