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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
