Zend launches new version of PHP Web application server

Code tracing technology to help developers cut troubleshooting time

By CBR Staff Writer

Zend, the PHP Company, has released a new version of PHP Web application server with a new Code Tracing technology that enables PHP developers and administrators to slash problem resolution time by up to 50%.

The company claims that the Zend Server 5.0 provides users with the visibility into the behaviour of their code in production environments, with the ability to pinpoint the root cause of application issues. It optimises application performance through multiple PHP caching and acceleration technologies, helps detect and diagnose issues through application monitoring, and provides a tested PHP application stack for Windows and Linux.

According to Zend Technologies, the Server is fully integrated with the Zend Studio PHP IDE, and Zend Framework for developing and deploying secure web applications. The Code Tracing can be activated manually or automatically when performance degrades or errors are detected through Zend Server application monitoring.

A new Zend Server view, based on Adobe Flex, provides visibility into recorded data, showing a tree of function calls, arguments, errors and duration, as well as statistical information that helps in identifying performance bottlenecks in production. It allows PHP developers to cut troubleshooting time by up to 50% and includes support for both PHP 5.2 and PHP 5.3, the company said.

In addition, the Job Queue, which is integrated into the Zend Server monitoring system and web console, increases application performance and responsiveness by allowing jobs (PHP scripts) to be performed asynchronously or at recurring intervals, offloading tasks from client initiated web requests to secondary processing, Zend said.

Andi Gutmans, CEO and co-founder at Zend, said: With this new version we are delivering application monitoring and diagnostics as part of the base application server at no additional cost. The new Code Tracing technology revolutionises how businesses can reduce time spent on problem resolution.”
