Sentry is an application monitoring platform designed for the specific purpose of monitoring performance and errors. It is intended to make life simpler for developers during the process of creating new software and apps, increasing their ability to meet deadlines with minimal stress.
The Sentry platform enables developers to diagnose, correct, and optimize code performance quickly and efficiently, which is crucial in reducing or eliminating issues for end-users once the application reaches the marketplace. After all, the faster you can successfully diagnose issues that are slowing your app down, including bugs or security breaches, the faster you will see success.
Sentry is a top choice for app developers, as it supports 30+ coding languages. Better still, it integrates with a variety of popular tools such as Slack, Jira, and GitHub.
At last count, Sentry is used by more than one million developers, and there are 60,000 organizations in 146 countries that rely on Sentry to maximize the quality of their software. Some of the best-known companies in the world count themselves among Sentry’s clients. Examples include Disney, Peloton, Cloudflare, and Microsoft.
Sentry identifies issues and errors in software applications and alerts developers as to the root cause. Once errors have been defined, Sentry supports recovery. Sentry assists with understanding how users have been impacted by errors through the tracking of field data. This includes variable network speeds, the typical browsers being used, the digital devices, and the location of users.
This is managed through Google’s Web Vitals, giving developers deep insight into the user experience. Users may be frustrated by slow loading times, or they may not be able to interact with the page at all. In some cases, the software performs well with certain browsers or devices, but they struggle with others. Sentry increases clients’ ability to adjust and rework in a timely manner, ensuring rapid resolution.
MetricFire’s complete infrastructure and application monitoring platform makes it easy to integrate Sentry. Simply enable a Sentry webhook from the add-ons section of your Hosted Graphite account. MetricFire's advanced filtering lets you choose only the data views you want to see and discard the rest. You can also set up simple rules to discard data you no longer keep, plus receive alerts via email or Slack.
Slack is a popular channel-based messaging platform that improves business communication and collaboration. This cloud-based solution offers enterprise-grade security and scalability, along with many innovative features that make it easier to have quality work conversations.
The core functionality of Slack revolves around chat rooms where users send messages and files. You can organize these rooms by topics, teams, projects, office locations, and other categories to keep the discussions highly relevant to that work. Users can also directly message each other. In addition to text messages, voice, screen sharing, and video chats are also supported.
You have a lot of flexibility in working with Slack. Your channels can be open to everyone in the organization, available for users outside of your organization, or made private for a subset of employees. A robust search function simplifies the process of looking up information, so it’s readily available. There is also an option of free-to-use and paid plans.
Slack workspaces create a central repository for work-related information, whether that’s being shared in messages, file attachments, links, or other formats. Slack performance monitoring allows you to see how your organization is utilizing this platform, whether it’s having issues, and ways to optimize it for your specific use cases.
One of Slack’s strengths is its integration support with many software types, allowing you to perform your work without leaving the workspace. For example, when you connect MetricFire and Slack, you can send immediate notifications to a specific channel so the right staff members see it. Since the alerts show up in a centralized communications tool being used for other daily work activities, they get noticed and acted on faster.
