"Better and easy to monitor all your errors."

What do you like best?

I found that It’s simple to install all program steps. Also, I can say that it is very fast to study and ready to the capability to everything that we need. I can get solutions quicker with logs, mistakes, and control across surroundings.

What do you dislike?

Actually, any bad errors do not come across in our work. The platform works good and gives the better monitoring system of our problems.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The software has a big opportunity and can allow a lot of wonderful things. With this platform, you can know what's going on at your work and chance to know what to work first. You can manage all working routines much better. Don't worry everything that you will need will be in right place.

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

"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.

"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

"Great for Developers new to Full Stack development"

What do you like best?

Being at a company new to full Stack Development, Stackify was a great way to see all the logs from full stack Apache, NodeJS and CentOS all in one place in a graphical format, without having to manually tail logs and find the right timestamp and compare logs in different formats.

What do you dislike?

It took a long time to configure and get the logs out of all the systems in a format we could understand a use efficiently.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Stackify made it very easy to make all the logs on the full stack development platforms easy to monitor and collate into an easy to manage and diagnose for bugs and performance problems

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

As a Company new to developing Full Stack, we had developers writing front end and back end code, with Apache and Centos logs to look at. So we wanted something to make diagnosing logs and errors efficiantly

"Stackify Really Stacks up"

What do you like best?

With Prefix and ReTrace I can really narrow field down and pin point issues without expending hours of troubleshooting and log traces.

What do you dislike?

Nothing, the tools are all around fantastic solutions. Cost is reasonable, implementation is easy. One of the few things in this world that just works.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try it before you buy it. You will find that this product is well worth the cost savings of having to re-deploy the code. In comparison to other products the cost is much more reasonable. You will get a greater bang for you buck by going with Stackify.

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

Through utilizing Prefix I have been able to discover issues that normally wouldn't have shown up even in QA. This allows me to catch that problems before end users notify of bugs. This has saved countless hours in troubleshooting and re-deployments.

"Server Side Error Monitoring Made Convenient "

What do you like best?

The ease of profiling an entire application is why I would recommend this APM. A single install / config and you are ready to go. The instant dashboards and pretty much automatic alerts make implementation seem pretty simple.

What do you dislike?

No client side monitor for network/java script. Feels like I have 1/2 the story sometimes. The charting and graphs could be a bit stronger. I feel like You get what you get, there isn't a lot of opportunity to extend above and beyond their implementation.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure it does what you want, there are a couple of options, all good.

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

We are in the space of Education, so ensuring systems are up and accurate is top priority. I believe our time to troubleshoot has gone down with Stackify.

"Great Tools for Dev Ops"

What do you like best?

Squashing bugs is hard. Stackify makes it easier. Their dashboard are simple and easy to manage. Their alerts are timely and effective. The product just works.

What do you dislike?

It would be nice to see some BI built in to the product. For instance, if there were a performance hit, it would scan the logs and make suggestions as to what may have caused the slowdown.

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

We use Stackify to monitor 5 different datacenter environments for our government customers. By having everything in one place - logs, error and monitoring - we can easily determine a direct correlation between performance and logging. This allows us to adapt quicker, improve our product offering and elevate our customers' overall experience.

"Complete information about an applications performance "

What do you like best?

It provides an Integrated Application Performance Management (APM) system. You will have access to a centralized dashboard where you can find every detail, such as, application metrics, errors, logs, performance of the database etc. Also provides tools to monitor all your servers for both standards metrics (CPU, memory etc) as well as custom metrics.

What do you dislike?

In the beginning though, you will need some training before anybody assigns a role to you to operate Stackify. The learning curve is a bit steep, however, once you get a feel of how things work, you will enjoy your job.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Stackify gives you minute by minute update of your apps progress and performance. For example, it would provide a comprehensive exception (error) log and create a report that would help a developer analyze the sequence of events that led to an error, which includes the code stack trace and all the logs recorded when that exception thrown. Moreover, Stackify makes it easy to share vital information with team members. At any moment if you feel that you are unable to troubleshoot an issue, the system can email or text the detail to another member, who would know more about the issue and fix it.

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

I have come across situations where I was involved in troubleshooting applications (web and desktop) and databases or monitoring the application performance, using different tools. Stackify unify all those tools, in a single simple dashboard.

"Excellent Troubleshooting Tool"

What do you like best?

Stackify helped us isolate a production problem that has been an issue for years. It breaks down the processes and helps identify where to start looking.

What do you dislike?

It is not possible to get all of the error reporting and log files into stackify with Red Hat 5. However, that does escalate our need to upgrade our OS!

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give this product a try and spend the time learning its capabilities.

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

We are trying to solve production latency problems and problems with our JVM running out of threads. Stackify alerts us real time of these issues so we can apply resources when needed.

"Great for monitoring our servers"

What do you like best?

The logging ability and filters that you can apply to the search. When we catch errors, we display the Stackify ID in our exception details and use it as a filter in Stackify to view the full stack trace. Clients don't care what it says, so it's nice to hide all the verbiage and they just tell us the Error ID.

Also like the alerting capabilities. Helpful when you want to address concerns before they are reported by clients.

What do you dislike?

Not much to dislike at the moment. It took someone to show me how to review the logs. It wasn't something that was easily understood using the UI and my limited knowledge with Stackify.

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

Mostly web service errors. We have been able to discover trends and make attempts to fix issues.

"Stackify satisfied"

What do you like best?

I like best that Stackify compiles all of the logging and performance management information which allows us to identify issues before they become too major and solve them faster. All the detail available on centralized dashboard is a great bonus as well.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that there is no Java support available yet, would be great if Stackify adds it. Also, it wasn't easy to get started on, the time spent with training and learning wasn't beneficial but the benefits have made it worth it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend if you're looking for a one stop tool, so great it's all in one area

What do you like best?

The ease of setting up monitoring and log tracking on our integration and production environments makes this a great tool for monitoring out REST APIs.

"Stackify (prefix/retrace)"

What do you like best?

The support received was outstanding and the team aided issues with deployment, which in turn was configuration on the client servers.

What do you dislike?

Some issues with the objects being sent to stackify Web portal and a learning curve for getting the monitoring just right.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I've trials several other solutions, if you're on a dotnet stack stackify is a clear choice. SQL specific performance monitoring may require additional configuration.

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

"Great tool for developers to monitor and troubleshoot their apps"

What do you like best?

I now have one tool I can use instead of using 5 different ones to get the information I need to start diagnostic an issue.

We were looking for a tool that will allow us to better understand what's going on with our cloud app, we were using Nagios for some pieces of the info some log aggregation tools and few other tools. Stackify integrated all these tools together making it easier for our team to find what we need to solve issues fast without the need to train on different tools. It does a great job at providing lots of useful information without it becoming overwhelming directing us to the relevant information needed at that point. All of the features are well thought out and it has proven very helpful at diagnosing and solving bugs in our application.

What do you dislike?

Stackify added a lot of great features lately, I need more time to learn them all but they look promising

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would highly recommend this product. It help us improve our app, and fixing problems faster.

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

In the past couple of years our team have become more involved in troubleshooting application. While operations have their tools and access we were lacking the info we needed, and typically only key people would have access.

"Good monitoring platform and prefix tools "

What do you like best?

Good UI, most detail of monitoring point which include server healty, service, metric, and error, log view.

What do you dislike?

Alert schedule is too simple. I can't find the detail for designing the alert time.

I can only set the alert interval time and upgrade time.

But I thinks it isn't enough.

Service and Queue Monitoring problem, APM+, Error check. Log view.

"Great product I would recommend to anyone"
