Robust reporting tool

2019-05-04

At the first glance it looks like it lacks features compared with other platforms, but after some time you understand that the product has everything you would need for successful project state monitoring.

Pros

Love the minimalistic UI, which keeps everything clear and understandable.

Cons

The quality of Android SDK isn't the top tier with not enough options for event reporting. Also had to so some adjustments for test suits, since in some cases the SDK wouldn't initialize correctly.

Great error tracking tool for the money paid

2020-07-20

Real-time error tracking, as soon an error pops up on test or production environment, we get an alert on slack and act on it.

Pros

It is simple to customize grouping rules, you can easily propagate notifications settings to all projects so they are matching, easy to customize, easy to integrate.

Cons

We have to pay much more to have a simple feature like viewing all projects' errors in a single view.

Rollbar is Awesome for the Aggregation of Production Errors

2020-07-16

We are using Rollbar on our project for more than a year and found it awesome. We were looking a solution where we can send and collect production errors and notify the team over Slack to fix them ASAP. We found Rollbar a great choice for that. Overall, the experience was great.

Pros

The dashboard, filtering features, aggregation capabilities and integration with other tools are the one of the best things of Rollbar.

Cons

Had to use API and Python to do the job efficiently.

Needs more feature

2020-07-15

On the verge to move log rockett which likely has similar pricinging and more useful feature.

Pros

The real time error loging and mostly easy setup.

Cons

UI needs to lot of works to make it user friendly.Telemetry doesn't give a better picture of the error and often confusing.

Necessary for software projets

2020-07-16

Pros

The ease of getting data into rollbar, and extracting meaningful information out of rollbar's dashboard.

Cons

It's possible with the API and the right queries via RQL, but it'd be nicer if there was a quicker way to export such data.

Pros

The dashboard where they combine multiple projects together was a great recent feature.

Reliable Exception Handling

2016-08-22

Logentries has a complicated, real-time UI. Sometimes that UI can feel a bit laggy if you've got a lot of logs coming in.

Pros

The ability to know which user experienced a problem when using the software before the user reports the bug.

Cons

I love the free plan, but the next plan they offer is $30/mo. I wish there were more side-project-friendly pricing options. $30/mo for a project I host for free and is open source is a bit much.

When integrating, look for packages that help with integrating your framework/software. Laravel has a great one that makes integrating painless. Also make sure you're sending user data to Rollbar, it's very valuable.

Great debugging tool

2016-09-07

You get errors reported in one place, with history, tracebacks, all request data, user data and so on.

Pros

- Tracebacks - Locals and args captured - Request and user data - RQL!

Cons

- Not everything can be exported as CSV (yet?)

Efficiently Resolve you system Issues

2020-07-16

It is really good tool, helping to stabilise the systems, enhance user experiences so they face lesser issues.

Pros

Their notifications on email, slack are instantaneous and provide real time alerts to the team.

Cons

Few times I observed similar exceptions are grouped correctly and few times they are treated separately that causes devs to dig into the list and spend more time.

Rollbar is good value and peace of mind.

2020-07-16

With a few lines of code, we have real-time monitoring and make it easy to fall into a pit of success.

Pros

I love the fact that I get very quick notices about an issue with one of our software programs and at the same time it doesn't nag with by sending me a hundred emails.

Cons

We still have some Perl scripts (one of our vendor's systems still uses it) and it would be nice to have a Rollbar API for those scripts to prevent getting angry phone calls if the system is having issues.

Error monitoring done right

2017-04-06

We're using Ruby on Rails, integration was a breeze, started receiving error messages in less than 5 minutes. The interface is easy to use, live feed works great showing errors as they come up, resolving issues and tracking deploys flows works perfectly.

Pros

Uptime, easy to use api, live feed, rql, people tracking, exceptional support

Cons

Unified dashboard between projects would be great, but can be implemented with their api

Amazing tracing of context data for execution

We are collecting data from 6 Django mircoservices and we can rely on Rollbar for all error logs and traceback rotation.

Pros

Ability to view in memory data snapshot and current variable values when exception occurred.

Cons

The dashboard could be faster with some default dashboards.

Rollbar does its job and then gets out of your way (until you need it)

2020-07-16

Super happy with Rollbar. Have used it on multiple projects, but in Recipe Cost Calculator specifically for probably at least seven years.

Pros

It reports errors well, it's reliable, the API and libraries are super flexible.

Cons

I think that some of the UI could be improved a bit on the admin dashboard, some things are really nit-picky like I don't like the way that text or lines wrap in certain places.

Simple yet powerful monitoring

2020-07-16

It's an excellent tool for monitoring and tracing back production issues.

Pros

I get the notifications that matter to me about broken stuff in production, saving precious time and allowing me to be ahead of users complaints.

Cons

Rollbar has much more than what I actually use at this point, but I'd be using even more if I found the setup process to be smoother.

Best-In-Class Error Reporting

2018-10-03

Rollbar is an absolutely fantastic service and highly-responsive support if you ever hit an issue, all at a very reasonable price point. I can't recommend it highly enough.

Pros

- Easy integrations make setup a breeze - Ability to filter errors by environment and assigned level make management great - Deployment tracking, view errors by user, search errors using SQL-like syntax, deobfuscation of stack traces - more features than you can shake a stick at

Cons

- Automatic grouping of errors leaves something to be desired, but this is can be worked around by marking these errors manually

Rollbar is easy to set up and provides peace-of-mind that you'll know if users hit errors

2017-08-08

Visibility into application errors and peace-of-mind that the team will get notified of any issues

Pros

I like being able to push errors from different platforms and languages into one system for alerting and reporting.

Cons

The UI generally stays out of your way, but this can make configuring certain things a bit tough (e.g. custom error groupings uses a JSON configuration).
