We believe that application performance management should be automatic.

From research lab to global market

Plumbr grew out of a scientific research that one of the founders, Ph.D. Vladimir Šor, was carrying out in the University of Tartu. His research resulted in something that would change all present perceptions on how malfunctions in IT systems should be handled. And in 2011 Plumbr was born.

Today Plumbr is a Java performance monitoring solution that brings transparency into your JVM performance. It is the only solution that automatically detects the root causes of Java performance issues by interpreting application performance data.

Plumbr revolutionizes the way you think about monitoring tools. Tools currently in the market give you endless amount of data and graphics which are truly hard to interpret. We don’t think it needs to be that complex – Plumbr does not waste your time, it helps you find a solution before the errors start impacting end users’ experience. This is what makes Plumbr unique.

Plumbr is backed by a group of investors whose experience ranges from architecting the first lines of code in Skype to building international energy trading companies. The group of ten people and companies have invested a total of $1.7 million into Plumbr.

Parts of the original research that later grew into the Plumbr product were funded by the European Union. See details

  • Nikita Salnikov-Tarnovski

    VP of Engineering


    Squeezing bugs and optimizing performance. That’s what Nikita loves to do. And by now he has more than a decade of experience in it. Bugs in a large e-health system, bugs in his own Clojure hacked-together-pet-project, bugs in his fellow developers’ code and mindset – all of these need solving!

  • Vladimir Šor, PhD



    Vladimir is the crazy scientist who invented the core principles of Plumbr while working on his PhD thesis.Before turning into a crazy scientist, however, he was the architect and lead developer of different telco and banking systems.
