LiveRecorder for Development

Clear your backlog for good

Is your delivery velocity hindered by a growing backlog of failing tests? It's not uncommon to see engineers spending up to 50% of their time finding and fixing bugs - instead of creating new features.

With LiveRecorder, you can unblock your development pipeline and accelerate software delivery by turning your flaky tests green... and keeping them green.

Solution

LiveRecorder for development

With LiveRecorder deployed in your test environment, you can rapidly clear your growing backlog of failing tests.

LiveRecorder is a software failure replay system designed to help you resolve all test failures once and for all - so you can focus on delivering changes at velocity.

THE REALITY OF CONTINUOUS INTEGRATION

CI requires zero-tolerance of test failures

Continuous Integration is the key to success for delivering at velocity. But to realize the full potential of CI, it requires a zero-tolerance approach to test failures: tests must turn green... and failures represent new regressions.

Unfortunately, intermittent non-deterministic test failures combined with running thousands of tests every hour make this very challenging to handle. Traditional debugging methods rely heavily on guesswork and slow engineering teams down.

In parallel, 50% of engineers' time is spent on software defect diagnosis and debugging. Yet, software is regularly deployed with known and unknown defects - ticking time bombs deployed into production. In fact, 91% of software developers admit to having unresolved defects because they cannot reproduce them. (3)

Reproducibility is the fundamental problem in software defect resolution techniques.

LiveRecorder product

Solving the reproducibility problem

When deployed in your test environment, LiveRecorder accelerates software defect resolution by eliminating the guesswork in software failure diagnosis. It provides full visibility and definitive data-driven insights into what your software actually did before it failed.

LiveRecorder resolves the technical challenge of reproducibility, simply by recording the program's execution as it fails. The recording file represents a 100% reproducible test case. No need to waste months trying to recreate the problem. Your engineers can get straight to analyzing the data in the recording artifact by replaying it backwards and forwards for speedy diagnosis.
