Rookout, a Tel Aviv, Israel-based provider of rapid production debugging solution, raised $4.2m in funding.
The round was led by TLV Partners and Emerge.
Founded by two Israeli low-level software engineers Or Weis and Liran Haimovitch, Rookout provides dev teams with a solution that tackles bugs and understand issues by collecting and pipelining data on-demand, without coding, re-deploying or restarting applications.
The platform lets dev teams set up ad-hoc rules inside their production code. These rules work like non-breaking breakpoints, collecting the required data without prior instrumentation. The application keeps running as normal, while the data is collected and then sent immediately to any destination such as alerting systems, monitoring, logging and analytics applications or any generic webhook. The collected data can also be viewed on Rookout’s IDE, allowing the user to close the loop within a single view.
Already, over a dozen software companies have joined Rookout’s early adopter program and are using it on their production environments.
The platform currently supports Python, JVM and NodeJS; on AWS, Azure, Google Cloud and local servers and can be used with serverless and containerized applications.
