Frictionless error monitoring for Ruby

You know that something's breaking your application, but combing through massive log files in search of an error is neither appealing nor productive. Unfortunately, it has to be done. Or does it? With Airbrake monitoring your Ruby application, you can skip the massive log files in favor of instant insight into your broken code.

In addition to a dashboard that provides general information about the health of your Ruby application, Airbrake lets you know in which environment the error occurred and what deploy caused it. Airbrake Ruby error monitoring includes detailed stack traces, context, and browser breakdowns to make it simple to drill down and catch troublesome errors.

Leading engineering teams around the world rely on Airbrake to:

  • Fix bugs faster - identify, assess, and fix bugs faster with all of the needed information
  • Monitor code quality - manage and triage errors with detailed dashboards, error trends, and deploy tracking
  • Improve team productivity - collaborate and prioritize with custom workflow integrations


Airbrake Ruby is extremely lightweight and perfectly suits Ruby applications. It allows you to link errors with your favorite project management and chat tools, including Jira, GitLab, and Slack, enhancing prioritizing and collaborating across your engineering team. Debugging is no fun. Airbrake can make it frictionless.
