Rails instrumentation


Please share your thoughts on how reliable to use custom Rails Instrumentation events with my own subscribers. The use case - I want to generate different events from different parts of the app and than use the instrumentation approach to send updates/alerts/websockets/etc to the user.

Does anyone use them in production? Please share your use cases.


Yes, I’ve used them in production at scale, although best to ensure your team is comfortable with the pattern. At BiggerPockets, we use them to track business events for injection into Segment and other systems.
