Troubleshooting PHP issues with Zend Server code tracing
Zend Server is an enterprise-ready web application server for running and managing PHP applications that require a high level of reliability, performance, and security. A key features of Zend Server is its ability to analyze the root cause of problems through code tracing. In order to resolve an issue, one must first figure out what went wrong — fixing a problem is often much easier than identifying its root cause. However, finding the root cause can often be challenging during testing, and incredibly difficult when the application is running in production.
Code tracing captures PHP application execution both in production and in test lab environments. This allows developers to replay reported problems instead of trying to re-create them. As a result, there is a dramatic decrease in time consumed by root cause analysis.
