Upgrading to the Production Edition

When you subscribe to the Production Edition, you gain access to the following features:

To make to most out of the Production Edition, follow these steps:

  1. Configure Blackfire environments based on your workflows, tooling and infrastructure. If you need help, contact Support.
  2. Configure access to your organization and environments.
  3. Configure Continuous Profiling for your PHP, Python, Node.js, and Golang applications.
  4. If you have configured Blackfire on a public website, set up periodic builds.
  5. Write your first tests, scenarios and metrics.
  6. Learn how to trigger builds using native integrations, CI/CD pipelines and the API (PHP or Python).
  7. Set up notification channels for your monitoring alerts and build results.

When you configure Blackfire environments, consider where your app is deployed and why. For instance, you can create the following environments:

  • One environment for development. All of your team members can use the corresponding server credentials on their machines to benefit from the Production Edition features while profiling locally deployed apps.
  • One environment for testing/staging. This allows you to automatically start Blackfire builds if you have continuous integration/continuous development tooling and infrastructure configured.
  • One environment for production, where you can configure periodic builds and get detailed insights into code performance. Configure Blackfire Monitoring and periodic builds and get live insights into code performance where it really matters.
