Better and easy to monitor all your errors.

Great DevOps product right out of the box!

What do you like best?

Log aggregation was my favorite feature for quite some time and is still one of my favorites, but I am a big fan of Prefix now. The ability to profile your web app during development is a great feature. Then with Retrace you can profile your production systems as well. Beyond this, the dashboards provide the window directly to your systems, stacks and help interrelate software and hardware systems, even across multiple data centers and cloud sites.

What do you dislike?

There aren't many things I would say I dislike. As with any system like this, there is configuration time, but Stackify does aim to have fast configuration while you are involved with it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Prefix is free and is a great way to get started using one of the products from Stackify without having to incur expenses while you realize some benefits.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Until Stackify, there was no one tool to do monitoring, performance dashboards, log aggregation, APM and more. This same technology would come with half a dozen or more products and even more expense several years ago. Stackify provides all of this functionality out of the box, in one package and provides you the actionable insights necessary to target problems when they happen and point you directly to where they are happening and all systems/software affected. A product like Prefix does so many things to aid development and is free! It's hard to beat that.

What Application Performance Monitoring (APM) solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

Stackify Is the Best Monitor for DotNet Projects

What do you like best?

IT makes it so easy to see how long processes are taking and, more importantly, what ran as part of that process and how long each of those parts took. Finding and addressing database performance issues is made easy as it shows exactly what queries run and how long they take.

What do you dislike?

It can sometimes be difficult to filter out some of the DotNet overhead (e.g. garbage collection) that can make a usually fast task slow occasionally.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Couple Stackify with Prefix (prefix.io) on the development machines, and you have a great performance toolset for all of your developers and support people. Stackify gives insight as to how things are running on the servers; Prefix gives insight as to how things are running in a development machine.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Providing support for an application. Stackify helps us insure that the application continues to run and performs well.

Trace logs quickly

What do you like best?

Effective for bug management and fixing them at a rapid pace and gives in depth performance and error monitoring of application on different servers and there is an option to include both API as well ,the environment has a lot of variables to send regular updates and data about crash logs,error logs,capture statistics and also monitors the regular required app at a specific point of time and we have deployed across multiple teams so far .

What do you dislike?

The cloud integration took a lot of time although we use it for performance monitoring just like consumer call management tool to track the incidents and requests ,the triggers and query monitor just keeps running in the background and occupies a lot of time to get across with valid data and API calls are quite complex

Recommendations to others considering the product

It has stronger alerting,analytics,performance,log management and there is no need to change code when monitoring or supervising the other background applications and the best to use and also the ability to search and filter exceptions are classy

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have lot of dashboards and reporting tools and to go back in time for specific reports and data tables,business intelligence this one works like a charm

Stackify - a great Tool for monitoring your app

What do you like best?

Great tool to see what is going on within your application. If you set it up correctly, you can get in depth information on what the app is doing and where there are failures. The log monitoring comes in very handy and it used on a regular bases when trouble shooting issues.

What do you dislike?

sometimes the search functionality can be a bit irritating. If you have large logs, drilling down to the right thing can sometimes be difficult.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This tools allows you to really get granular on issues within your application. It gives even non-tech users insight into what is going on.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are solving the visibility of issues problem. I can look at a per user basis what is going on in the logs and see where the application failed.

The easy way to get rid of logging management

What do you like best?

Very easy to handle for a moderate price.

Good documentation how to integrate stackify in your business-applications. Support of standard-logging-frameworks. Can be used like a normal logger. I

The "Error-View" is one of our most used features and helps a lot to find, analyze and keep track of bugs.

If you're using services/tools like docker, aws, azure or bluemix it is a must have.

What do you dislike?

The performance of the web-app is not always the best. Especially if you're changing some filters on the log-view.

This is NOT a show stopper, but sometimes it is a little bit annoying (depends on your mood)

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We're using Stackify to find potential misbehaviour in our software and to improve the performance of our Support-Team. Most of our incoming tickets can be solved or least linked to our trace/error-logs in stackify.

As stackify supports diagnostic contexts, it is easy for us to filter the logs by LEVEL or customer and to retrieve valuable meta-data about the log context
