Introduction

Ozcode Production Debugger serves professionals in different roles throughout the software development lifecycle.

Developers

Developers at every level, from junior engineers to senior software architects, enjoy a new debugging experience in a familiar Visual Studio-like environment. There is no longer any need for hands-on coders to waste time trying to reproduce bugs or recreate the environment in which an error was captured. Ozcode Production Debugger records the full code execution flow with full fidelity time travel debugging, visibility into local variables, method parameter and return values, network requests, database queries, all relevant log entries, and even a timeline of events like HTTP requests. With that information at their fingertips, developers can pinpoint the exact moment of failure and understand the root cause of the problem for a quick resolution.

QA

Ozcode Production Debugger notifies QA professionals of exceptions that occur in runtime systems and provides all the information needed to create the perfect bug report. Rather than having to collect debug information from separate sources such as log files, screen captures, database queries etc., Ozcode Production Debugger provides all the relevant information through a single shareable link. All QA needs to do is share that link with the developer. And since the developer does not need to reproduce the bug, or recreate the environment in which it occurred, there is no friction between the developer and QA as the developer debugs the exact version of the source code that manifested the error.

DevOps/SRE

Ozcode Production Debugger provides DevOps practitioners and SREs with tools to maintain application health and reduce MTTR from production errors. Ozcode can be included in the CI/CD pipeline to establish quality gates based on exceptions caught and prevent faulty deployments from being promoted up the pipeline to production. Once an exception does occur, Ozcode bridges the gap between Dev and Ops using effective communication enabled on the collaboration panel in the Debugging Screen for rapid resolution of errors found in production and pre-production environments.

Business Stakeholders

Business stakeholders are the ones who are ultimately responsible for the quality of their applications and the service they provide to their customers. Ozcode Production Debugger provides business stakeholders with a clear picture of application health letting them monitor service quality to identify and fix errors before customers notice anything is wrong. When errors do get through to production systems, Ozcode minimizes MTTR by accelerating root cause analysis of the bug for quick and final fix.
