Airbrake vs. Sentry

Why are developers pumping the brakes on Sentry and moving to Airbrake?

You're keeping a close eye on your web apps, and even your servers. Things should be running smoothly. Unfortunately, your user experience leaves something to be desired. And the more time your engineers spend debugging, the less time they have to focus on writing and shipping great code. That's where Airbrake comes in.

Trusted by thousands of the world’s best engineering teams, Airbrake silently monitors your applications for errors, 24 hours/day, 7 days/week. By providing information in real-time about affected users, stack traces, and parameters, Airbrake helps you quickly assess and fix the problem. Customers remain happy and your team can return to creating new features, instead of debugging the old ones.


Airbrake simplifies debugging with:

  • Crash reporting - receive immediate alerts to new errors in the communication tool of your choice (email, Slack, GitHub, etc.)
  • Error diagnostics - monitor trends and error history to help you locate when, where, and how the error was introduced
  • User monitoring - gain access to user and URL breakdowns to determine the scope and priority of errors
  • Data and analytics - separate old errors from new ones and keep an eye on how the error volume changes over time


Furthermore, as Airbrake works with all major programming languages, including iOS, Rails, PHP, Python, etc., it's easy to monitor code quality across your entire stack. It's just one of the reasons the world's best engineering teams rely on Airbrake. But don't take our word for it.

Stop losing customers to a bad user experience. Airbrake can tell you what's broken, who's affected, and how to fix it.

“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."
