Airbrake vs. New Relic

Why do developers choose Airbrake over New Relic? 

You're closely monitoring your web applications and servers. Everything is going well, right? So why are your customers still having problems? Every minute that your customer experience is compromised costs you money. And more importantly, it costs you goodwill! That's where Airbrake comes in.

By monitoring trends and error history, Airbrake gives you real-time information about stack traces and parameters. And engineering teams can determine the scope and priority of errors with access to user and URL breakdowns. Separating old errors from new ones and keeping an eye on how the error volume changes over time is easy with robust data and analytics from Airbrake. And whether you use Slack, Jira, GitHub, email, or another communication tool, Airbrake provides immediate notifications when a new error happens, giving you visibility into your customer experience so you can make it better.


Airbrake silently monitors your user experience, providing:

  • Aggregated error data - easily identify affected users, browsers, URLs, and more
    Intelligent error grouping - monitor error trends over time for individual errors, or across your entire project
  • Mobile optimized web app - providing 24/7 access from anywhere
  • Deploy tracking, search, and filter - robust search and filter abilities to allow you to drill down on the exact errors you care about


Airbrake's customizable and proprietary grouping algorithms allow your engineering team to spend less time debugging and more time focusing on writing and shipping great code.

And whether you use email, Slack, GitHub, Jira, or another communication tool, Airbrake provides immediate notification when a new error happens, giving you insight into your customer experience so that you can make it better

Stop losing customers to a bad user experience. Count on Airbrake to track and monitor your application's exceptions.

“Airbrake has such an intuitive experience for debugging that it enabled a significantly faster triage process. For a recent issue, I started reading through the git diff (~1000 lines) and spotted the bug within a minute or two. The fix was deployed moments later. All in all it took just 30 minutes from error detection to deployed fix.”

“It wasn’t until we switched to Airbrake that we finally were able to get our exception emails under control. The ability to see your errors in one place, mark them as resolved, and organize them by deploy makes all the difference."
