Real Time monitoring for Laravel applications.

2.1.10 2019-06-14 20:24 UTC


Build Status Latest Stable Version


Install the latest version of our Laravel package by:

composer require inspector-apm/inspector-laravel

Configure the API Key

First put the Inspector API KEY in your environment file:


You can obtain INSPECTOR_API_KEY creating a new project in your Inspector dashboard.

Attach the Middleware

To monitor web requests you can attach the WebMonitoringMiddleware in your http kernel or use in one or more route groups.

use Inspector\Laravel\Middleware\WebRequestMonitoring;

 * The application's route middleware groups.
 * @var array
protected $middlewareGroups = [
    'web' => [
    'api' => [

Report Exception intentionally

By default every exception fired in your laravel app will be reported automatically.

You can also report exceptions programmatically for which you will be able to access detailed information gathered by LOG Engine in real time:

use Inspector\Laravel\Facades\Inspector;

try {
    // Your dangerous code...
} catch(LogicException $exception) {
    // report an exception intentionally without blocking the application flow

Full configuration

If you want full control of the package behaviour publish the configuration file:

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Inspector\InspectorServiceProvider"

That will add config/inspector.php in your Laravel configuration directory.

You can set the environment variables below:


Laravel >= 5.0, < 5.1

Laravel's (>= 5.0, < 5.1) exception logger doesn't use event dispatcher ( and that's why you need to add the following line to your App\Exceptions\Handler.php class (otherwise Laravel's exceptions will not be sent to Inspector):

public function report(Exception $e)

    return parent::report($e);

Enrich Your Timeline

You can add custom span in your timeline to measure the impact that a code block has on a transaction performance.

Suppose to have an artisan command that execute some database checks and data manipulation in background. Queries are reported automatically by Inspector but for data manipulation could be interesting to have a measure of their performance.

Simply use Inspector facade:

use Inspector\Laravel\Facades\Inspector;

class TagUserAsActive extends Command
     * Execute the console command.
     * @return mixed
    public function handle()
        $users = Users::whereHas('project')->get();
        // Measure the impact of entire iteration
        $spanIteration = Inspector::startSpan('process');
        foreach ($users as $user) {
            // Measure http post
            $span = Inspector::startSpan('http');
            $this->guzzle->post('/mail-marketing/add_tag', [
                'email' => $user->email,
                'tag' => 'active',
