OverOps is a native Java agent that can monitor servers in production for companies with large scale distributed environments.
Once your server is monitored by the OverOps agent, all exceptions and log errors are reported and analyzed. These reports includes the exact code and variables which caused each error. OverOps has been specifically designed and engineered to perform well on servers under high load, and gives visibility into your production environment.
Thanks to real-time monitoring, logs are becoming a thing of the past.
Enterprises, SMBs and startups who use OverOps are able to take down their issue resolution time from days and weeks - to hours and minutes. Cutting time off from the iterative process of locking down on the root cause of errors from log files. Installation process doesn’t require any code or configuration changes and only takes a few minutes.
OverOps integrates with your existing workflow and tools, so you’re able to:
- Receive custom alerts on your prefered platform: email, Slack or HipChat.
- See the state behind your logs, using log links that OverOps attaches to each event. This feature includes support for all logging frameworks and log management tools.
- Visualize event behavior over time, You can export this data to your existing tools like New Relic, Grafana, Pagerduty, Datadog and many more.
The customer support is generally very good. The concept is outstanding. Being able to record runtime state in production for post-mortem debugging is utterly amazing.
There are a number of critical application issues described below, but the chief con of Overops is the price. This is *at least* an order of magnitude more than the value that Overops provides, and is a kick in the teeth for surely most startup-level organisations, particularly ones like ours that helped them grow their business.
There were at least 3 occasions in 2+ years of use that Overops (previously Takipi) released updates to their agent (which runs in our production JVM) that caused the whole jvm to segfault. This is a pretty poor track record (and it's more than a little ironic that this happens with a *software quality tool*).
In all that time we never succeeded in getting a noise-free or complete exception notification channel between Overops and our Slack installation. It would fail to notify about most errors, and routinely report errors we had attempted to filter out. This persisted despite numerous sessions with app engineers.
Overops (formerly Takipi) is a great tool that has been a fantastic asset to our debugging capabilities. Super easy to set up, and we've noticed no issues with the minimal overhead introduced. There are many ties where we've been able to solve a problem without having to try to reproduce it just because we had Overops installed.
Easy to use, very focused use case and extremely helpful information.
A bit pricey for a small company with a server per customer to monitor. Probably ok if you have one server for many customers.
Know. Prioritize. Act.
OverOps provides Automated Root Cause (ARC) analysis, which reduces companies MTTI and MTTR by over 90%.
We help over 200 enterprise customers such as Fox, TripAdvisor, Zynga, Comcast and Intuit know when, where and why their code breaks in staging and production. With OverOps, these companies identify and fix critical production application errors before they impact the end users and customers.
How do we do it?
OverOps tracks all exceptions and log errors on staging and production JVMs, down to the exact code and variable state that caused them. Unlike traditional error resolution tools and logs, each event is instantly analyzed and displayed with its full context.
OverOps offers better application performance by:
-Alerts when code breaks in staging or production
By analyzing data from all exceptions and logs easily, in real-time, without having to be dependent or sift through log files.
-Complete Variable State Behind Each Error, Exception and Issue
With OverOps it’s easy to visualize your log errors and exceptions, without having to parse logs. The OverOps dashboard gives you the complete code, including the relevant variable state behind each error with a single click.
-OverOps Fits Your Existing Workflow
Don’t change your current workflow. OverOps offers seamless integration with your favorite tools and services, such as Graphite, HipChat, Elastic, Slack, Splunk, PagerDuty, AppDynamics, Datadog and many more.
