Exception tracking on all platforms

2018-09-07

Sentry was a game changer on how we handle errors in our applications. Instead of waiting for user reports, we watch Sentry event panel and act in advance!

Pros

Sentry is a great exception tracking, which works everywhere, from Java back-end to mobile hybrid apps.

Cons

Their notifications are not simple to configure too...

Just perfect

2015-12-17

The performance is top notch, I get timely alerts for all the events triggered across our many servers and services, the traceback is always as expected and easy to digest and get to the root of the problem.

Pros

Easy to setup on django, pure python services and frontend.

Cons

No real cons, the service just works as it should be.

Sentry has been a default backend error tracker for years

2018-05-01

We didn't have to configure and support anything for error tracking and alerting, Sentry is really a one-click solution

Pros

- Very easy to integrate with python projects - Nice UI, trace page has all the context, you may potentially need to debug - Can post exceptions right into Slack

Cons

I think I was confused by the UI navigation a few time, but I was able to figure everything out by myself eventually.

Easy to configure Backend alerts for your production environment

2019-07-20

Overall experience was really good with production alerts being fired anytime there was an exception or an outage on the backend server.

Pros

Sentry can be easily integrated with your platform for generating email alerts for any issues on production backend server.

Cons

Also we faced some issues with integrating the HTTPS sentry link with Node.js.

Very powerful, but can be confusing to set up

2018-03-08

Pros

The data log is really nice and it's great to be able to get email alerts.

Stay ahead of system errors

2019-05-08

It has helped us greatly to always know when an application crashes so that we begin working on fixes.

Pros

It sends notifications to my e-mail and often when I click view on sentry I don't need to re-login it just takes me where I need to go Version Control integration which make it easier to resolve issues when making a commit

Cons

When an issues occurs multiple times I want to view breadcrumbs for multiple cases at once but this option isn't there and if an issue occurs thousands of times this is a challenge I can seem to find resolved issues to review them for whatever reason, at least if resolved issues were accessible for some time this would be great, or if this is already there making it easy would be great

Finding errors in code has never been easier.

Error debugging in production.

Pros

Simple API. Open source technology.

Cons

If you have a burst of events, it can become pricey. Other than that, the product is great and useful.

A must-have in our tool kit

2018-03-24

Pros

Thanks to their platform we are instantly made aware when someone has an issue on our API, dashboard, or one of our worker bots fails for an unforeseen reason.

Cons

Especially if you use an API. This can in some cases prevent other errors in other projects from showing up.

Makes error-tracking and bug reproduction easy.

2018-07-27

Better error tracking, meaning better bug finding and reproducing.

Pros

- Get great information from real users like environment, device, or just where the code failed

Cons

- Challenging for a non-developer to become comfortable with this tool.

Sentry is quite reliable and it has been working quite well for my product.

2017-07-28

Be preempted on errors... fix it before client complaint.

Pros

Customization, Robustness, Friendly UI, and it works well for my project so far.

Cons

The sdk is not as robust as it seems when sending large amount of data along with the exception.

Allows me to track errors and fix bugs before they are noticed!

2018-08-07

Pros

The notifications give me peace of mind that things are running smoothly.

Cons

Sometimes it is hard to drill down into errors that happen many times, and the UI for managing teams and users is not always very intuitive!

Instant issue notifications to the entire team with visual reports, issue timelines, assignees

2019-04-25

Pros

Anyone on the team can subscribe to get instantly notified about the issues; multiple projects supported in the same dashboard (in my team we use separate projects for different types of environments).

Cons

Since all screens are minimalistic, they all look the same at a first glance, perhaps some color or header accents would be nice, also some sort of labelling for more customized filtering could come in handy. As a PM I think I am more picky about things like that than developers on my team though. Overall this is a good product.

Great tool to build better software

2017-07-27

Pros

Ability to know about errors as soon as they happen verses waiting for users to report them. Helps me to recreate the error.

Cons

An iPhone app would be a nice addition but currently their site works pretty well on a mobile device.

Great error reporting software

2019-03-10

Having everything all in one place makes it much easier to figure out whether an error is a global issue or just one person using an old browser.

Pros

There are a lot of options to keep your data secure through filtering as well as adding user context which makes tracking down issues much easier.

Cons

I also have noticed a dependency throwing an exception all the time now which is a little annoying, but overall it's a pretty awesome tool.

Keeps our developers informed about the errors

2018-10-10

Pros

Also, the interface is easy to use.

Cons

Blocking of events that you don't want to measure is a bit harder as we thought it would be. Sometimes it happens that we reached the maximum limit, but after sending an email to support they did reset our rate limit.

Works brilliantly. Sentry focuses on one thing, that is just great.

2018-08-01

Easily handling incoming issues and keep track of which problems are prevalent.

Pros

The biggest strength of Sentry is that it is so well designed for the downstream handling of issues.

Cons

And then you cannot turn off email notifications for re-opening issues.
