Sentry has been a default backend error tracker for years

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

Easy to configure Backend alerts for your production environment

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

Very powerful, but can be confusing to set up

The best way to monitor applications & websites for issues

Sentry is used within almost all of our applications, whether they're run by ourselves or our customers. It provides amazing peace-of-mind because I can rely on Sentry to report any issues & also keep logs & error reports handy for further investigation of such issues. We've never regretted using Sentry and are very likely to not consider moving to another platform anytime soon.

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

No cons so far.
I think I was confused by the UI navigation a few time, but I was able to figure everything out by myself eventually.

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. Be it an exception on the server or the outage, sentry will send an alert to your email and once you login to the dashboard, you can easily see the stack trace for the error which occurred on the server along with the frequency of occurring error. Sentry integration is available for different programming languages.

Cons

Setting it up with your backend server for the first time can take some time. Also we faced some issues with integrating the HTTPS sentry link with Node.js. Other than that, its a great tool in helping you keeping your production environment available 24/7.

Pros

Sentry is an awesome tool for developers looking to collect errors in one place. The data log is really nice and it's great to be able to get email alerts.

Cons

If you're using one of the premade libraries for an existing framework, it's very easy to get started. But if you aren't working within a framework and need to set up the integration yourself it can be somewhat confusing. Sentry is born out of a previous/older project called Raven, and the Raven name is still referenced which makes it sometimes confusing to find up-to-date documentation.

We've never regretted using Sentry and are very likely to not consider moving to another platform anytime soon.

Pros

Sentry is the best way to monitor your websites / applications for issues. It supports virtually every programming language, runs on every system, is easily set up and maintained and is really easy to use.

Cons

Sentry in the cloud can be a little pricey for smalle projects & developers but there is a self-hosted plan of the app which can be set up on your own servers, so really even pricing-issues are pretty much non-issues for us and, I'd imagine, most potential users.

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). Automatic weekly and monthly reports are simple but informative. Gitlab integration is available. I also really like visibility into team members who have already seen the issue. Issue search filter is very detailed as well. Open source and cloud versions are available so any team's needs can be met.

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.

Benefits

- Complete Stack Traces: See your full code directly in an exception’s stack trace. Sentry automatically applies source maps to convert minified or transpiled JavaScript. For iOS crashes, Sentry symbolicates Apple’s incomplete exception data. Sentry is also the only error tracker that displays stack locals for Python and PHP errors in production.

- Understand the Context: Sentry provides key details of each exception so you can set priorities based on business-critical issues. Add custom tags relevant to your app and environment to recreate specific error conditions and filter down to a single crash and user without auditing logs.

- Breadcrumb Event Trail: Knowing the timeline of events that led to an alert is the best way to address root cause and assess priority. Sentry exposes server-side history—debug logs, network requests, SQL queries—and client-side details—user interactions, HTTP requests, console messages—that reveal the full state of your app.

- Track Releases: Associate errors with a specific app version so you know exactly when problems were introduced and resolve with next release. Sentry suppresses duplicates, and you'll receive notifications if things regress. Add commit data to fully integrate with your deploy process and automatically assign issues to their most likely author.
