Pros
Airbrake is easy to use, the pricing is great, and the granularity of the information is good as well.

Mugurel C.

It makes error-tracking simple, and I'm extremely grateful for it being integrated into Heroku for ease of use with my Rails project. Would definitely use it again and recommend it to others.

We receive notifications in our mail and slack, great for quick turn-around. Statistics are a nice addition.

Cons
It was really difficult to backtrace all log files to catch my apps errors and that was a waste of time, but now I can concentrate to fix them.

MA

Motaz A.

It has been my experience in the past in many different IT organizations to not find out about an error until the customer reports it.

One problem I faced is, UI is not very interactive for beginners. Some times finding some features becomes harder.

My Favorite Error Tracker for Webapps

Reviewed 3 years ago

Airbrake has made error tracking easy for us and I enjoy that the interface and feature set continue to improve over the years.

Pros

Airbrake is one of the items on our checklist to setup with every new webapp we create. The setup is fast and it provides immediate value. Being able to receive an email for a new error that comes in is indispensable.

Cons

I would like to see Airbrake integrate with Kanbanery as that is our agile project management tool of choice. It does already integrate with Trello and Pivotal Tracker. Finally, while we use Airbrake on all of our apps, we do not always upgrade to a paid plan as it is simply more than we need. If Airbrake had one more lower tier paid option, then we would consider upgrading more apps to paid plans.

Airbrake is a great error monitoring product

Reviewed 4 years ago

We rely on Airbrake for additional production and test environment monitoring of app exceptions. By linking Airbrake error alerts to HipChat notifications, we get great high-level alerts whenever an error happens, right in our team chat room. It's easy to drill down into the error details with the UI. We also use the Comments feature of the Airbrake errors to reduce bystander effect among team members -- no comment means nobody triaged the issue.

Pros

Great UI, easy to drill into the errors. It's great how they roll up errors of similar types intelligently. The "Occurrences" view is especially helpful, to know which errors are infrequent and which deserve higher attention.

A Long Running Service For Exception Reporting

Reviewed a year ago

We used Airbrake for many years and found it easy to integrate it into projects with Ruby on Rails and other popular frameworks. Over time the company has shifted more towards using Rollbar which is compatible with Airbrake clients but had more advanced server side aggregation of errors and other search / filtering features that came in handy for us.

Pros

It is easy to setup with popular frameworks like Ruby on Rails and Python. Its compatible with similar products which helps avoid vendor lock-in. The service has been running a long time and has established a track record of being reliable.

Cons

It is a bit light on features compared to some of the newer competitors. The main decision points for me would be cost and how easily the UI allows you to access the information you need. I think there are competitors with a better UI and the pricing would probably depend on your team size.

Bots, and plugins, and cache invalidation, oh my!

Reviewed 4 years ago

Airbrake has been amazing. We were able to get it installed, configured, tested, and deployed to two applications in about 30 minutes thanks to their open-source packages and concise documentation. We were even able to update Airbrake with information about our releases (git commit #) so we knew exactly what version of the code we were running when a problem began. We went from being overwhelmed...

Pros

Easy to setup Reduces email alerts Smartly organizes Easy to use We love showing it off

Cons

I wish it would fix the exceptions too :)

Powerful and easy to use! Plus, a great ROI

Reviewed 4 years ago

Airbrake has been used by other teams in my organizations for quite some time. My team and I were building a new Rails application and we decided to include Airbrake for error reporting. Using Airbrake was one of the best decisions we made and here's why: tl;dr - Installation, configuration, and integration were all painless. My only request is to expand supported integrations to more and different...
