Easy to monitor error.

What do you like best?

I can get a sort notice by error type, and more to support and increase our workflow. I have the ability to use telemetry to see the timeline of fact leading up to a mistake. Also, I can overlook error trends by entry, browser, OS, position, user, and host. Great way to sort out our errors.

I don't feel any bad sides of this software. I like to work with it. I'm glad that I can take very helpful advice from support service.

Resolved errors in just one click.

What do you like best?

I can say that it is great software allows you to manually merge errors and control them in a few clicks. Faster find out what’s broken and why by using contextual information, request params, environment, and affected users.

What do you dislike?

Actually, with tracking system everything is good. I can't say that I have problems to use that solution. I like any working step.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The software let us get notified of regressions when resolved mistakes reoccur. You can spread tasks by appointing errors to workers of our group. Also, we like the working way of issue tracker which works automatically.

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

We have the most comfortable and useful bugs system which helps us to find all mistakes and the way from where they come. Actually, it is a great solution for a productive analyze. Much better to customized alerts inform our group in real-time in our messaging tools of choice.

What Bug Tracking solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

The Absolute BEST Thing You Can Do for Writing Better Software

What do you like best?

Real time error reporting. Intelligent clustering and grouping of error occurrences by 10^n. Lots of flexibility in alerting rules.

Team Rollbar--I LOVE you guys and your wonderful service! This review is far too long overdue.

Let me save you a bunch of time and make the decision for you. If you're not already using an error tracking platform, you must. If you're deciding between which services to use, just go with Rollbar, and stop deliberating.

Rollbar is hands-down, THE BEST full-stack application error and exception monitoring/tracking system.

I was an early user and first started using Rollbar in early 2012 (back when it was still called Ratchet.io). Suffice it to say, it has completely transformed and leveled-up the way I build and write applications.

Rollbar is now a must-have for any application I build. TDD? Yeah, could do that, or you can just be more lean and start building, and Rollbar will catch all of your exceptions for you. Large team? Even more so that you need Rollbar, so that you can detect and fix errors before they inconvenience your users.

Here are the reasons for why I think Rollbar is great:

Best thing since sliced bread - For the developers in the late 90's to early 2000's who remember it, just as Firebug and later on Chrome Developer Tools was to JavaScript development, so is Rollbar to development on any stack. Before, with writing JavaScript in Netscape Navigator and Internet Explorer 4.0, all you had to go off of was that there was a JS error and the JS on a page was completely broken. Developers familiar with that old debugging technique will shake their heads today--manual binary search, commenting out parts of code until it started working again--those days are gone. Now, with Rollbar, you can know with certainty what parts of your application, down to the specific line(s) of code, are causing the exception.

Rollbar has an exceptional, world-class team. Rollbar is built by engineers, for engineers. I know because I've worked with a few folks at team Rollbar, including the founder/CEO Brian Rue, who has been a mentor and advisor to me at a few startups, and some of my elite former colleagues who were hand-picked to join the Rollbar team. They are extremely talented hackers and engineers.

Rollbar scales, an is extremely reliable. We're not just talking Mickey Mouse pretend scale, but they actually do. Guess what? Unlike most of the rest of the web, they're actually NOT primarily an AWS-based stack (yeah, because AWS outages can cause large chunks of the web to fail). Rollbar is in multiple data centers across the world for improved latency, durability/reliability of data.

Rollbar is extremely easy to integrate and very well documented. There are modules/agents for just about every stack and programming language. A basic setup takes 5-10 minutes.

Rollbar is thoughtful. In the early days of Rollbar, data wasn't scrubbed so potentially you could see sensitive information in the notifications you got. Now, they've significantly improved the reporting agents and UI so that sensitive information can be scrubbed before sending notifications, and additional sensitive/PII fields can be configured in the interface.

Rollbar beats the pants off of their competitors. The primary competitors I'm thinking of are Sentry and New Relic. New Relic is more for infrastructure than application, and often, infrastructure smells and problems are code problems. In terms of budgeting or planning IT spend, I would maximize spending on Rollbar and maybe some more basic infrastructure monitoring like hand-rolled Nagios or even Datadog (which also totally rocks, btw) instead of New Relic. As for comparison with Sentry? See next bullet point.

Rollbar is an adult, whereas Sentry** is a kid. Sentry came out of Disqus, and was built by designer-engineers. Don't get me wrong--they have good engineers, but not as good as Rollbar's. I don't care if Sentry is more popular atm or if the UI looks better; I want to know that I can have absolute confidence in my error tracking platform and sleep better at night. If error tracking services were facial hair, Rollbar would be a full, lush beard, and Sentry would be the teenage kid with sporadic prickly hairs here and there and some peach fuzz on the side. Rollbar doesn't rate-limit by default, which means you get all of your exception occurrences notified and tracked. It is 4K Ultra HD, if you will. (Though, to help manage costs and temper noise, you can set custom rate limits per API key--this is so powerful!) Sentry rate-limits by default, resulting in "sampling" error tracking which isn't full coverage and leaves you erroneously thinking that your app is in better health than it actually is.

Rollbar is "multi-tenant" (similar to GitHub) in the sense that you can have one user account affiliated with multiple organizations and projects. This is a nice added convenience.

Rollbar is enterprise-ready and has on-premise deployments.

As of this review, it's 2016--why aren't you using Rollbar yet? If you're still trying to hand-roll your own error logging system, I would seriously question you or your company's technical competence.

What do you dislike?

Nothing, this software is the-bomb-diggity-dot-com.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Rollbar has an excellent freemium model. Once you start using it, you can set up rate limits to not trip into higher usage tiers or overage costs.

Any software company that has any serious plans of scaling should implement Rollbar ASAP.

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

With Rollbar, you are able to discover and fix errors before your users do. This is a huge business value.
