Time-critical incident reports are essential for async task processing. With a tool like IronWorker, running tasks is almost always a seamless process. It all happens in the background, away from the main application framework, allowing you to get on with other aspects of your business. In most cases, you just wait for the task to finish. There are rare instances, however, when things don't run so smoothly.
Setting up incident reports with a tool like PagerDuty provides you with real-time information about any errors, timeouts, or other task processing failures that happen in IronWorker. As a result, you can rectify the problem instantly and optimize task processing across your organization.
In this guide, learn the benefits of PagerDuty and IronWorker integration and discover how to do it in a few simple steps.
