New Relic extension for HHVM updated to latest version
Jan 20, 2015 @ 10:04:14

In his latest post to the Liip blog Christian Stocker points out that the New Relic extension for HHVM has been updated for the latest versions of HHVM to work a bit more seamlessly.

Since HHVM 3.4 it's theoretically possible to have your own external profiler for function level profiling (like xhprof or xdebug) without having to recompile HHVM itself. Unfortunately it wasn't perfect (or I couldn't make it running), but there's a patch in the master branch now (the upcoming 3.6), which seems to solve that problem. So I worked a little bit on my extension in the last few days and I adjusted a lot of things and improved some other stuff.

He talks about the improvements New Relic has made on their functionality and some slowness that still exists in the "hotprofiler". He points out, however, that if you just want overall statistics and not specific, method level ones, you don't really even need to use it. He offers a word of caution when using his extension and when it may fall back to "userland level profiling" instead.

On the Liip blog today there's a write up from David Buchmann about the just-passed Symfony Live conference that happened in Paris. his recap covers some of the high points of the event including sessions from the Liip-ers in the crowd.

Last week, there was the Symfony Live conference in Paris. The conference was surprisingly big, about 500 developers came together in the impressing building of Cité Universitaire Internationale. The main topic was of course the upcoming Symfony2 release. We had two days of talks and a hackday on Saturday, and lots of fun every night. The topics are on the conference website, some discussion and slides are on joind.in.

He mentions some of the "state of Symfony2" updates that were mentioned and some of the talks that were given by the Liip employees including ones on the Symfony2 CMF project, RabbitMQ and Symfony2, security and Javascript.
