JavaScript troubleshooting

What is JavaScript troubleshooting?

JavaScript troubleshooting refers to the process of diagnosing and resolving performance issues in JavaScript programs. JavaScript is used on almost all modern websites, and errors in JavaScript code can result in broken functionality, slow load times, and other problems that negatively impact the digital experience.

What is digital experience? Digital experience is a user's impressions of their interactions with a digital product or service such as an online media platform or mobile app. The key to delivering a superior digital experience is to continuously evaluate and optimize the user experience and performance delivered by your applications. This is can be done through UX testing, application performance monitoring, and timely application troubleshooting.

When you need a more powerful JavaScript troubleshooting tool

When it comes to web applications, implementing JavaScript troubleshooting will be a critical component of any digital experience management strategy. In recent years, JavaScript coding techniques and frameworks have become increasingly complicated, making it difficult to identify the root cause of a problem when things go wrong. Is it the browser, a third-party API, the network, or bugs in your code? This is where a good JavaScript troubleshooting tool can help.

In some cases, your browser's developer console, which can be used to view JavaScript error messages, will be sufficient for JavaScript troubleshooting tasks. However, there will be occasions when the console fails to provide you with an error message or the error message is difficult to decipher. A JavaScript debugger is another simple JavaScript troubleshooting tool that can help you examine your scripts, but the debugging process can be time-consuming and tedious. And, if the source of the problem isn't a bug in your code, you'll be left searching for clues elsewhere.

When dealing with more complex web applications, you may find that these basic tools aren't enough. For problems that are more challenging to solve, you'll find that an APM platform like Dynatrace is more appropriate for the job. Whether it's JavaScript troubleshooting or PHP troubleshooting, Dynatrace makes it easier to diagnose and eliminate issues degrading the performance and user experience of your web applications.
