The future of embedded debugging

Reviewed 2 years ago

Companies at this scale are really a group people and a culture and not a nebulous entity. This team has been fantastic in communication, issue resolution, and proactive attempts to identify problems. They have lived with the problems of not having this tool so they understand what needs to exist to have a good end-user experience.

Pros

Can see FW deployments at a glance Can create sub-groups to deploy specific FWs to for internal testing (And can change on the fly) Better stacktrace visualization than my IDE Real-time visibility into new problems and regressions Has helped me track down stack overflow issues, heap fragmentation issues, issues with the manufacturer's BLE stack and all the kinds of critical hard-to-track problems that would have taken 10x longer without it. There is nothing else like it. It eases debugging of any problem more than any other tool I have ever used.

Cons

(Note: these are all minor and I have already notified the Memfault team about them.) I can't easily get access to the raw per-device metric data via a documented API. I can't easily see the FW version that the metric data was produced on via the web interface. There is a bit of confusing about which visualization tool to use for the metric data and it seems to have some bugs. It is hard to manage the metrics generally. There is a limit on them it is hard to deprecate ones you create that you realize you don't need. Etc. Some confusing things about being able to deploy debug/release builds and managing variants of build types. (Perhaps more education on our part could have fixed this?)

Finally analytics for IoT!

Reviewed 2 years ago

Amazing when doing trial deployment to be able to diagnose issues fast remotely. Firmware issues are now so fast to find!

Pros

Amazing for managing firmware versions and examining what is happening with individual units.

Cons

There is limited API access to the data. And custom queries on the data can be hard to do.Fleet graphs are somewhat limited.

Out of the box functionality that all IoT products need

Reviewed 2 years ago

When deploying huge numbers of connected products, it is an inevitability that some of them will experience faults and crashes. The product we integrated Memfault into is battery operated so every fault incurs a hit to the battery life, which could ultimately lead to the product violating its warranty, creating big problems for us. Without the functionality offered by Memfault built into the product those issues can be all but impossible to ever resolve. I am relieved that we are using the service as it gives me confidence that those issues, when we encounter them in the future, can be solved quickly and effectively.

Pros

With my experience as an IoT firmware engineer I did not struggle to integrate Memfault into our existing product at all. Memfault support was fully available as well to help answer the few questions I did have. Using their webapp to inspect faults and their respective traces is very easy. Their webapp is easy to use and intuitive, and guides you quickly to getting immediate value from the data it reports.

Cons

Integrating the product does require at least a firmware engineer, if not someone on the Cloud side to handle the messages from devices.. Memfault does a lot to make it easy, but that could be a high barrier to entry if a company doesn't have those resources on staff already.

Powerful device management technology made accessible

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

Memfault is easy to integrate and scales without any additional effort. It gives our startup hugely valuable capabilities while still being really accessible.

Cons

Memfault's data visualization still seems to be in it's early stages, but have noticed this improving with time. Not a major factor for us though. Overall, no complaints.

Great choice for any connected product

Reviewed a year ago
Pros

Memfault can help with not only your deployed fleet, but also in-house debugging. It's extremely useful for easily displaying all information involved with crashes in a very user-friendly way, instead of having to manually parse out data with scripts on the command line.

Cons

The pricing is a bit opaque. They have a reasonable explanation and are super willing to work with you on getting a flexible plan that works for you though.

Don't run around. Have HW in mind, keep memfault too

Reviewed a year ago
Pros

Memfault helps to create custom metrics to track the HW behavior and also provides a timeline to look at HW performance, this is the best to understand, compare and improve the HW performance.

Cons

Data visualization can be better but memfault takes the reviews periodically and improve their product as well.
