Get the best diagnostic results for your applications

LeanSentry uses diagnostic information already present on your Windows server, to eliminate the need for invasive profiling. When issues occur, LeanSentry employs precision debugging to obtain the code level information to diagnose them.

You can help make sure we can do the necessary diagnostics by improving the data quality in your environment.

We'll automatically suggest the changes you'll need to get the best results, in the LeanSentry data quality wizard.

To access the data quality wizard, simply click the environment settings button at the top of your dashboard to access the environment-level data quality wizard.

Follow the recommendations in the wizard to improve your monitoring quality. For example, install missing IIS components like Tracing and Request monitor to enable Hang diagnostics, or install Windows debuggers to enable memory analysis and additional diagnostic types.

Review the data quality recommendations to improve LeanSentry monitoring.

Each recommendation will provide an explanation of what is needed, and a help article to explain how to do it if you need additional instructions.

LeanSentry reports a detailed status for each server that you are monitoring, that you can review for additional information when needed.
