The Diagnostic Report utility was recently brought into the Node.js core to help developers identify almost all scenarios of Node.js application anomalies in production. The scenarios include abnormal termination such as a crash, slow performance, memory leak, high CPU, unexpected errors, incorrect output, and more. While the report does not pinpoint the exact problem or specific fixes, its content-rich diagnostic data offers vital hints about the issue and accelerates the diagnostic process. The utility was originally available as a npm module, and was brought into the Node.js core because it significantly helps identify the root cause of numerous types of…
