Elmah Alternatives

Why developers choose Airbrake as an alternative to Elmah

A compromised user experience affects more than just your bottom line. It also negatively impacts any goodwill you've built up with your customer. And that's not so easy to get back. You cannot afford to simply monitor your app performance. You have to monitor your user experience. That's where Airbrake comes in.

Airbrake takes the guesswork out of error management. By silently monitoring for errors across your entire stack and notifying you of any new errors, as well as providing context, browser breakdowns, stack traces, and more, Airbrake makes it easy to assess the scope and determine the root cause of the problem so that you can fix it fast. Whether you communicate on Github, Slack, Flowdock, email, or any other platform, Airbrake provides real-time notifications when an error occurs.


In addition, Airbrake provides:

  • Trend analytics - see which releases are improving your user experience, and which are making it worse
  • Comprehensive search and filter options - to let you quickly find that needle in the haystack
  • User monitoring - see which users saw an error, when, and how many time


Monitoring code quality has never been easier. Airbrake works with every major programming language, from Microsoft.net to Ruby to Java — and beyond — so that it works across your entire stack.

Your error logs are filling up fast. But are those old errors or new ones? Is it getting better or worse? And how can I fix it? Airbrake answers all those questions and more.

“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."
