Airbrake vs. Rollbar

Why do developers prefer Airbrake over Rollbar?

Studies show that an unhappy customer is much more likely to tell others about their experience than a happy one. When a quality user experience is on the line you can't afford to choose the wrong error monitoring service, which is why leading engineering teams around the world choose Airbrake. Airbrake tells you what's broken, who's affected, and how to fix it.

Compatible with all major programming languages — including Ruby, Python, JavaScript, Node.js, and Rails, to name just a few — Airbrake integrates with your stack in minutes. By silently monitoring all of your applications and delivering real-time alerts to all new problems affecting your users, Airbrake gives you critical insights into your application's exceptions. Furthermore, with context, stack traces, browser breakdowns, and more, you'll have everything you need to assess the scope and determine the root cause of the problem.


Airbrake monitors your user experience and provides:

  • Intelligent error grouping - track error trends over time across your entire project or for individual errors

“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."
