How to Monitor Errors in Magento 2 Store

Administration Magento 2 Checklist

You store insurance against unexpected issues

Working as developers, we assured ourselves a million times: the first glance does not matter.

Even if new changes can not have influence on the store at the first sight, they can become a reason for unpredictable issues.

For example checkout process can be broken or existing links can turn into 404 errors, just because you installed a new extension on your store yesterday.

Indeed, with occurrence of injection (plugins) mechanism in Magento 2, the code became more sophisticated. Thus it happened to be more difficult to test and to predict all the possible consequences of change either in any part of code or in any configuration setting.

That is why we decided to launch Health & Performance Monitoring Suite extension and, without any delay, installed it on our own store.

How can Health Monitoring Suite for Magento 2 help?

Technically, our extension collects the following information about Page Timing, Page Cache Rate, PHP/JS Errors etc:

  • Loading speed of different pages - TTFB (Time to first byte)
  • Status of cache
  • Full page cache coverage rate (it's very important performance indicator)
  • Number and text of PHP errors (extension monitors logs in folders var/report and var/log)
  • Number and text of JavaScript errors
  • All the extensions installed on your store and their versions

Then, the extension remembers and compares the current values and states with the ones obtained before.

You can find the results, given in percent, on the the Configuration Snapshot tab.

All the archived results are also displayed there. So you can see how your current version performs better or worse comparing to previous versions.

In its turn, another tab “Recommendations” suggests a list of guidelines, the use of which can improve your store operation.

For example, there are reminders about the necessity to enable several options which affect magento performance. Meanwhile, the tab also shows what has been already done and what is still waiting to be completed.

The last but not the least thing to mention is GDPR compliance. Our extension does not collect any private data at all.

To sum up, with Health Monitoring Suite for Magento 2 we can be almost sure, that we know about our store issues, before our customers tell us about them. Or even before any internal issues influences occurrence of our store in Google organic search results.
