As enterprises transform their business processes to embrace greater digitization, cloud and mobility are combining to rapidly shift the application and data traffic profile within the enterprise. More enterprise applications are being delivered from the cloud, and more enterprise users are mobile and require anytime/anywhere access to applications. The network delivering application data to users must evolve. In distributed enterprises, such as those with several branches and remote workers, it is the wide area network (WAN) that requires an urgent transformation.

Lightrun Launches Support for Python, Giving Developers a Simpler Way to Debug Live Machine Learning Pipelines

Lightrun | August 09, 2021

Lightrun, the leader in IDE-native observability, today announced support for the Python programming language and its ecosystem of deep learning and data science libraries. With support for Python (the second most popular programming language, according to analyst firm Redmonk’s 2021 Programming Language Rankings), Lightrun brings “shift-left” observability to the algorithmically complex data science realm, where troubleshooting production code is essential to troubleshooting machine learning pipelines. With the release, Lightrun is supporting the Python language and the PyCharm IDE, allowing Python developers to debug many of the most popular frameworks in artificial intelligence and machine learning, including: Apache Airflow, Luigi DAGs, PyTorch / Tensorflow models, and PySpark jobs. Where traditional debugging solutions focus on debugging logical bugs in a single process application -- Lightrun extends shift-left observability to Python developers whose machine learning pipelines require computation across multiple processes and machines, and where input data is always changing in unforeseen ways. “Discovering the root cause of failures in a machine learning pipeline is challenging because problems can come from many different sources, including bugs in the code, input data, and improper parameter settings,” said Leonid Blouvshtein, co-founder and CTO at Lightrun. “With Lightrun’s support for Python and related frameworks, now developers can have live probes into their algorithms and models and observe what’s happening in production code, all without leaving the IDE. This is a dramatically more efficient way to evolve machine learning pipelines over previous approaches.” About Lightrun Lightrun is a Tel Aviv-based startup that is transforming the developer experience, by bringing an innovative developer-native observability platform that empowers dev teams to take full ownership of their code, from development to production. The company is the first to bring "shift left" observability, giving developers deeper insights into running applications by allowing them to insert logs, metrics and traces during runtime. Boasting the richest set of observability pillar tools for observing applications directly from within the IDE, Lightrun simplifies every aspect of incident resolution. Lightrun is ISO-27001 certified and is proud to have some of the most innovative technology companies in the world as customers, including Taboola, Sisense, Tufin and more.
