Database management systems, data delivery, processing, and analytics are mission-critical to the businesses that run on them.
They are also very complex, and users often push them to their limits of performance and scalability. As complexity increases, catching and fixing defects becomes harder and more time-consuming.
To help ensure product quality/stability, leading vendors have integrated LiveRecorder in their CI/CD pipeline to catch and fix defects early, accelerate defect diagnosis and resolution, and reduce the time it takes to get changes into the pipeline (past-testing).
Integrating LiveRecorder into our development pipeline will help us resolve complex challenges faster than ever before.
With LiveRecorder, we were able to dramatically cut down the analysis time that is required to understand the root cause of very complex software defects.
A defect in a data management system can turn into a serious production incident / customer escalation... data loss, security breach, business downtime.
According to a recent analyst report, 82% of software vendors have experienced issues in production related to a previously seen but unfixed test failure. Usually, that's because a test failure could not be reproduced.
With LiveRecorder, engineers can record a program run - capturing an exact replica of that failed process. The recording provides a complete picture of what the software did, and why.
Engineers simply analyze the recording by stepping forward and backward through the program's execution, just as they would with a video player. This process allows engineers to swiftly identify the root cause of the defect, and fix it.
This workflow significantly improves engineering efficiency, since no time is wasted trying to reproduce the failure.
LiveRecorder is available for C/C++ applications and Java applications.
Record every test failure in your CI/CD pipeline (including flaky tests) and give engineers the information they need to catch and fix issues early - reducing defect slippage
Empower your engineers to provide a timely response to customer tickets - minimizing customer disruption and avoiding escalations
Get a reproducer in hours and reduce the time it takes to get changes into the pipeline past testing - boosting development velocity and team productivity
