Cloud-based platform for monitoring application performance

Epsagon overview

What is Epsagon?

Epsagon is a cloud-based system administration platform that helps enterprises troubleshoot and monitor microservices. It enables users to trace previous operations, payload, or performance metrics with resource details including event date, duration, IP address, hostname, and error type.

Epsagon allows businesses to perform query operations on applications using the search functionality and track the frequency of issues during a particular time period through histograms. Managers can monitor system applications to identify production issues related to timeouts and errors, and receive automated alerts via various channels such as Slack, Webhook, Microsoft Teams, and email. With its architecture map, professionals can view the entire production architecture, including microservices, Function-as-a-Service (FaaS), cloud services, and external application programming interfaces (APIs).

Epsagon offers integration with Amazon Web Services (AWS), which enables enterprises to monitor container workloads and lambda functions through multiple accounts, regions, or programming languages. Businesses can perform regular audits and encrypt critical data in compliance with international security mandates such as HIPAA, SOC 2 Type II, ISO2700, and GDPR certifications.

Caleb Brewer

Best drop-in distributed tracing tool for server-less architectures

Used daily for 1-2 years

Review Source: Capterra

It's been great to grow with Epsagon. I was one of the first using it on JavaScript Lambdas, and the absolutely first using async/await which meant I got to catch some of the bugs. Since then the product has matured significantly and it is very pleasing to use. Reliability and performance have been strong for some time now.

Pros
- Easy to use, just instrument your functions or add the Epsagon Lambda layer - Service map is interesting - Automatically captures network connections, database connections - Automatically captures a function's input and output - Makes it very easy to debug issues - Easier and more featureful than X-Ray

Cons
- Alerting functionality hasn't caught up to CloudWatch yet - Requires instrumentation, (probably impossible to avoid, but still...) - Can be slow to analyze new traces - Cross-invocation metrics aren't very useful yet

Pros
Time to remediate a production error have become significantly faster than before. The tracing view is easy to understand and gives the right context when try to solve a bug.

Cons
I would love to see more services monitored at the same way. Kinesis, AWS Elasticsearch and ECS Fargate tasks would be a great addition.

Pros
Epsagon is the best way I know of about how to monitor, analyse and debug backend apps. We use it extensively with AWS Lambda and what was impossible to understand before, is now made super easy.

Cons
Was a bit hard to setup with lambda (because of custom runtime), but got easier since then.

Pros
Epsagon gives us a window into an otherwise black box that is Serverless. Love how easy it is to setup and the Epsagon is great about responding to issues.

Cons
The data within Epsagon can feel fragmented there are known gaps in what traces/events can be correlated and it is difficult to understand at times where alerts/issues came from.
