Product Updates 💻
Search Recordings of Your Running Code with Our New Inspect Command Feature
Searching code files is easy. But knowing where code, web services, dependencies and SQL are being used when code is actually running isn’t so easy. Our new Inspect Command feature indexes and scans AppMaps to search recordings of your running code, so you can figure out:
- Where misbehaving queries are coming from in the code
- Which code is using which tables
- How to refactor code or tables into microservices
- Which web service routes are using a dependency (like a cloud API, email provider or security service)
Give it a try for yourself! Inspect Command is available in AppMap for Ruby, Java and Python.

Also in content-related news, we found this post (and survey) by Chris Grams, about how developers use open source software today and what’s holding them back, interesting. Also worth a look: another great post by OpenView that frames the different market segments of dev tools and the Consortium for Information & Software Quality’s latest report on the cost of poor software quality in the U.S. Spoiler alert: it totals $2.08 trillion! 😱
