    You should always run your servers using a process manager that will automatically restart them in the event of a crash. A common one is PM2, but you also have systemd or upstart on Linux, and Docker users can use its restart policy. Once this is in place, reliable service will be restored almost instantly, and you'll still have the details of the uncaught exception so that it can be investigated and corrected promptly. You can go further by running more than one process and employ a load balancer to distribute incoming requests. This will help to prevent downtime in case one of the instances is lost temporarily.

    Today I'm launching PM2 DevTools, a browser extension that allows you to manage PM2 processes and logs from your browser. This has been a fun side project for me, and while I realize the demographic for a tool like this is likely pretty narrow I'm still excited to show it off.
