Debugging resources are available for use on all VIP Platform environments. VIP recommends gaining familiarity with each of these debugging resources and including them in an application’s development workflow.
- The Debug Bar and Query Monitor are plugins that are loaded by vip-go-mu-plugins on WordPress environments, but must be enabled by a customer in order to be available for use.
- Logged output for PHP error reporting on WordPress environments including fatals, warnings, and notices—and output sent to
stderron Node.js environments—is retrievable in the VIP Dashboard Health: Logs panel or with the VIP-CLI Runtime Logs command.
- New Relic is an application performance monitoring (APM) tool available for WordPress environments and Node.js environments. By default, New Relic is disabled, and must be enabled for environments by a VIP Support request.
The VIP Support team also utilizes these debugging resources to investigate site issues reported by a customer or by VIP’s site monitoring tools. Ensure that customizations made to application code do not block VIP Support’s access to these resources.
