Pros: It's really easy to use, there's a ton of wrappers available for any programming language / framework, and they have an 'always free' formula, which I use for my personal projects

Cons: As with any online product, I don't like to pay :) But other than that, I can't say anything bad about it. And as I said, they have a free formula, which is great if you're just working on a small personal project

Pros: 1. Reporting all exceptions and errors
We just add simple Rollbar code and it catches all unhandled exceptions. Very useful and simple feature, that we use.

2. Custom error reporting.
We add some asserts on the most complex part of the code, to catch potential logic errors at the very beginning.

3. Real-time log.
When you have to test the production. Instant error logging helps save time.

4. Assign Owner
Each error can be assigned to the developer and can be marked as resolved when done. Very useful.

5. RQL Console
The new tool, it allows us to create detail data queries.
Very powerful tool for the analysis of problem areas in our code.

Cons: Price plans based on the number of requests. But if your project didn't have a lot of errors all looks good.

Rollbar is easy to set up and provides peace-of-mind that you'll know if users hit errors

Pros: The setup is easy, and the product is very feature-rich. It is powerful and integrates with popular tools (e.g. Github, Slack) to tie into your team's processes. I like being able to push errors from different platforms and languages into one system for alerting and reporting.

Cons: The UI generally stays out of your way, but this can make configuring certain things a bit tough (e.g. custom error groupings uses a JSON configuration).

Overall: Visibility into application errors and peace-of-mind that the team will get notified of any issues

Pros: We have been using Rollbar for over a year now and it has been really helpful for our engineering team.

One of the best features is the solutions tab which provides community answers to common problems.

Highly recommended.

Cons: Free plan is just not enough for bootstrapping startups. I wished there was some sort of pay as you go model.

With a little elbow grease, Rollbar is a great log aggregator!

Pros: * All of the information that is logged and available to be logged
* Realtime log monitoring
* Super-fast logging
* The ability to log via JavaScript!!
* Responsive customer support

Cons: The thing I disliked the most was the time it took to implement. After installing the Nuget package, you have to manually wire it up to Rollbar. It took a few days to implement it across 3 different hosted applications (ASP.NET MVC, Web API 2, and Azure Offline Data Sync) using SOLID and DRY principles. Once it was setup, though, it works great!

Overall: Log aggregation across multiple .NET applications.

Pros: Uptime, easy to use api, live feed, rql, people tracking, exceptional support

Cons: Unified dashboard between projects would be great, but can be implemented with their api

Overall: We're Rollbar customers for a about two years, moved to Rollbar after trying few other log aggregation services but none of them had features we needed or didn't deliver on their promise.

We're using Ruby on Rails, integration was a breeze, started receiving error messages in less than 5 minutes. The interface is easy to use, live feed works great showing errors as they come up, resolving issues and tracking deploys flows works perfectly. Also I can't recall when Rollbar had downtime or a bug, yet we see new gem releases regularly. I wish other services we use had such a robust infrastructure as Rollbar do.

Also I'd like to mention their exceptional support, with very quick responses from highly qualified agents that solve your problems spot on.

With Rollbar tools we manage to resolve majority of the issues as they happen, before customers contact our support teams.

I'm a Rollbar user since the very beginning of the project. Before Rollbar I've switched a few ways of dealing with logs.

First, I was just reading logs when needed with tail and getting a weekly batch of errors by email. That was OK for local development and tiny projects but for bigger deployments that were useless because the amount of data.

Then I've found some offline log aggregation tools and these were OK but still required exporting logs, running these tools and checking results. Rollbar automates all that. You're getting a realtime picture of your errors. You can sort messages by the number of occurrences thus getting a good list to work on.

Another fun part is how it charges you. The more errors you have the more you pay. Rollbar motivates you to fix things to pay less.

At first, I've tried it in personal projects then in a huge commercial project that is already running for more than 7 years. Rollbar saved me hundreds of hours and I'm glad I've stumbled upon it back then.

Pros: Reading a long log-file make any sense

Cons: As an owner of a start-up, I wish the price was a little bit better if the free version isn't enough.

Overall: Starting to use a consolidating error log was a game changer for our developer (and the users of our site). In our company, we try to spend every Thursday to eliminate all the bugs from the site and categorise them as Error or Warning and give them better titels.

Pros: Simplicity, Ability to integrate with tools and our application to track real-time issue.

Cons: None

Overall: At DocEngage we have been using Rollbar for more than a year now.

We track real-time exception and respond to the issues quickly, sometimes we reach out to our customers before they find time to report the issue. This yields very impactful customer gratification. It also helps us to pinpoint the issue with real use case and evidence.

When we have issues with manful traces we observed there is less tension between developers and quality/support team.

We tried many competing real-time issue tracker and settled with Rollbar for its simplicity and integration capabilities.

We use Rollbar for tracking Java and Javascript exception and our effort to create integration hook was almost zero.

As far as collaboration is concerned, we love the way it's integrated with JIRA and HipChat.

Recommendations to other buyers: Their free plan helped me to get started and we loved the product comparing many other products that we evaluated in the same functionality.

Pros: Easy to hook, event tracking

Cons: Pricing

Overall: I have been using rollbar for a couple of weeks now in my MVP it is very useful in tracking real-time events and exceptions is on the client side.

Very easy it to add it your web app and you are all set to receive exception alerts as well as important events.

I already depend on it to understand user engagement.

Only thing is I find it a bit expensive for a very early startup.

Recommendations to other buyers: Need cheaper plans for very early sartups

Pros: Log Grouping
Stacktrace with local variables
Enivronment Separation

Cons: Something the grouping can work too well, and errors that are different actually get grouped together. The standards can be a little hard to figure out, and there are multiple ways to do everything.

Overall: I'd never really done any log management things untill my CTO brought this product to our application suite. The time this has saved us is just incredible. The main features that really help:

Grouping of Logs - Groups together errors so you don't get spammed. There have been a time or two this has worked against me, but overall it really helps. Not to mention, you can resolve errors and they'll pop back up if they happen again, so you know if something is really broken or just a one off developer bug.

Stacktrace and Local variables - Really helps that they include the full stack trace, and if you choose, can display local variables you inject. This has made it so easy to setup some debugging features and then let them go. For those really weird bugs that you really can't seem to nail down a cause for.

Environment Separation - Really helps to tell between a production (oh no! Lets fix this!) or a staging (fix it before pushing) kinda errors.

I don't think I could go back to any other debugging method. In the very least, Rollbar always gives me a place to start using xdebug. At the most, I look at the information and know exactly what went wrong, and can fix it. Great product!

Recommendations to other buyers: There are very few problems, and the time it saves easily makes up for them.

Probably the best error tracking tool!

Comments: I own most of the backend infrastructure for a small non-profit. As we started to roll out our product to more users, I wanted to be able to capture any server-side errors that might be preventing people from using our software. After researching a few different services, I settled on rollbar due to their pricing, their ease of integration, and their ability to track events to a specific user.

I've been using the service for almost a year now, and I couldn't be happier with the decision.

On a side note: Due to a widespread internet outage one month, we quickly used up all the events in our free plan. Though rollbar shared zero fault, when I contacted their support, they credited our account with all of the events from that time period. Amazing customer service!

Cons: As with any online product, I don't like to pay :) But other than that, I can't say anything bad about it. And as I said, they have a free formula, which is great if you're just working on a small personal project

Overall: I have been using Rollbar for about 3 years now, and I have to say it has made my life a lot easier. They have a ton of platform integrations, but I have only integrated this service in Android and PHP projects. For most programming languages, they have their own API, but this product seems to be so popular that people are even writing wrappers around the API for frameworks.

Eg see https://github.com/jenssegers/laravel-rollbar

I would definitely recommend this to anyone, especially because they also have an 'always free' formula, which gives you the opportunity to try it out.

Customer support is really decent, they're usually replying to your requests in 2 hours or less. And I'm not even in their timezone.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you do notice a bug in their SDK's (which I doubt since they're not a startup anymore), don't hesitate to send in a pull request. I once did in the beginning, they accepted, and now I can feel good knowing that my small fix is probably reaching tens of thousands (or more) users.

Comments: Team Rollbar--I LOVE you guys and your wonderful service! This review is far too long overdue.

Let me save you a bunch of time and make the decision for you. If you're not already using an error tracking platform, you must. If you're deciding between which services to use, just go with Rollbar, and stop deliberating.

Rollbar is hands-down, THE BEST full-stack application error and exception monitoring/tracking system.

I was an early user and first started using Rollbar in early 2012 (back when it was still called Ratchet.io). Suffice it to say, it has completely transformed and leveled-up the way I build and write applications.

Rollbar is now a must-have for any application I build. TDD? Yeah, could do that, or you can just be more lean and start building, and Rollbar will catch all of your exceptions for you. Large team? Even more so that you need Rollbar, so that you can detect and fix errors before they inconvenience your users.

Here are the reasons for why I think Rollbar is great:

Best thing since sliced bread - For the developers in the late 90's to early 2000's who remember it, just as Firebug and later on Chrome Developer Tools was to JavaScript development, so is Rollbar to development on any stack. Before, with writing JavaScript in Netscape Navigator and Internet Explorer 4.0, all you had to go off of was that there was a JS error and the JS on a page was completely broken. Developers familiar with that old debugging technique will shake their heads today--manual binary search, commenting out parts of code until it started working again--those days are gone. Now, with Rollbar, you can know with certainty what parts of your application, down to the specific line(s) of code, are causing the exception.

Rollbar has an exceptional, world-class team. Rollbar is built by engineers, for engineers. I know because I've worked with a few folks at team Rollbar, including the founder/CEO Brian Rue, who has been a mentor and advisor to me at a few startups, and some of my elite former colleagues who were hand-picked to join the Rollbar team. They are extremely talented hackers and engineers.

Rollbar scales, an is extremely reliable. We're not just talking Mickey Mouse pretend scale, but they actually do. Guess what? Unlike most of the rest of the web, they're actually NOT primarily an AWS-based stack (yeah, because AWS outages can cause large chunks of the web to fail). Rollbar is in multiple data centers across the world for improved

Pros: - Tracebacks
- Locals and args captured
- Request and user data
- RQL!

Cons: - Not everything can be exported as CSV (yet?)
- More out-of-the box integrations would be very useful (i.e. Celery)

Overall: Rollbar is a must-have for the debugging toolkit. You get errors reported in one place, with history, tracebacks, all request data, user data and so on. Capturing of locals and args is *incredibly* useful and speeds up debugging greatly. You can easily have many people looking at a bug at the same time. The interface is really clear and easy to use, even for the non-dev teammates.

You won't be needing much support, but when you do it'll be both very responsive and very effective.

Setup is easy and Rollbar never gets in the way of your code. Just add that integration with Slack and you'll find Rollbar indispensable. Massive opportunity for squashing bugs quickly. Definitely do recommend!

Pros: The ability to know which user experienced a problem when using the software before the user reports the bug. Combining that with the debug information, I'm empowered to follow up with the user about the problem notifying them of a potential fix even when they never submitted a bug report.

Cons: I love the free plan, but the next plan they offer is $30/mo. I wish there were more side-project-friendly pricing options. $30/mo for a project I host for free and is open source is a bit much.

Overall: I switched to Rollbar as an alternative for my side projects since Logentries doesn't offer a free tier. Logentries has a complicated, real-time UI. Sometimes that UI can feel a bit laggy if you've got a lot of logs coming in. Rollbar doesn't have this kind of complex UI so it feels faster and simpler. I'm beginning to prefer it over Logentries.

Recommendations to other buyers: When integrating, look for packages that help with integrating your framework/software. Laravel has a great one that makes integrating painless. Also make sure you're sending user data to Rollbar, it's very valuable.

We use AngularJS and it was very difficult for us to deal with error in production. Thankfully we stumbled upon Rollbar. Now...problem solved. :P

Pros: UI and Erro Logging Mechanism

Overall: So in past we have used many error handling tools like sentry and errlytics but when we start using rollbar it is just an awesome experience in terms of ui and error logging. I recommend other companies to use this , would really benefit development with this tool.

Comments: It took us minutes to set-up rollbar as we use Laravel which has a very useful integration directly available.

The PHP package was not as well developed as other languages, but has been improving. The developers are quite responsive to issues raised on their Github pages and there have been several releases since we started using it.

The HipChat and JIRA integration has been useful too!

This combined with seamless github integration means we're now switching all our error tracking to Rollbar.

Comments: I've been dipping my toes in with lots of solutions lately, looking for anything that would provide me with the kind of insight I need to build great products. Honestly, the competition is stiff right now. There are so many good tools, but Rollbar is hitting all of the right notes. It took me literally 60 minutes from deciding to try it out to installing, logging a test error, injecting into our production packing, push some environment segmenting variables over, and then fixing actual errors that I had somehow failed to catch before.

I emailed back and forth with the representative that reached out to me as I was getting going, and was happy with the responsiveness too.

I don't want to name names, but I pretty quickly uninstalled another system's "RUM" script shortly thereafter, and then proceeded to ditch the default email alerts in favor of a beautiful Slack/Asana/Bitbucket integration setup. Rollbar is SLICK. Thank you! And my customers would thank you if they knew what you were saving them from!

Great free tier to get started. I see no reason to move off once I out-grow the free tier.

Comments: Rollbar is really easy to use and great because it supports a lot of environments, like PHP, Node.js and Browser-Javascript. You have a clear view of all errors and you can filter them by type, environment or other categories. 5000 events per month are for free which is enough for small websites. Contacted them once and got a fast and professional response.
There's not even one thing I didn't like about Rollbar.

Comments: The no. of integrations possible in Rollbar is mind boggling. Exception tracking is one of the major pain point in DevOps and Rollbar eases and automates the entire process.
The automatic error grouping works like a charm.
We internally log all user sessions (anonymously). You can map errors to user_ids and session ids as well. So, using Rollbar API and custom data sent with the exception, i can use it to track user wise exceptions.
Having tried, used and paid (non-free tier) of all the competitors in this space, this is the best one.

Would recommend them.

Comments: I was truly impressed when I tried out Rollbar. I'm new in the web application development game, so I'm learning the right tools to use and the services that help as I go. I found out about Rollbar after some searching of application monitoring. I found out that not only is it easy to use out of the box, but it's also a cost effective solution. I develop apps on Heroku and I was even more excited to find that it was an out of the box add-on. After about 30 seconds I was up and running with exception tracking and notification through Slack. I couldn't be more pleased with my decision. I look forward to continuing this partnership in the future.

Comments: I started using Rollbar a few weeks ago and my experience was really awesome.
Integrating with my Ruby on Rails application was just a matter of minutes.
Afterwards, all of my errors were directly shown in the extremely easy to use dashboard and I could realize how many I had, that I was not having into account.
This helped me to start solving all of the errors and my app starting working much better.

I extremely recommend it!

Comments: Our team has been testing Rollbar as a possible replacement for Honeybadger and has liked it enough to decide to make the switch! Some of the features that stood out to us:

* Better UI/UX in general that makes the app feel more comfortable to use

* Pricing is more affordable (assuming a reasonable number of events per month)

* Powerful notification settings, letting us set up different issue severity and only receive notifications on what matters most (more signal, less noise)

* Mute option (another way to cut down on the noise)

* More logical error grouping (especially for JavaScript errors)

* More powerful options for auto-resolving and cleaning up old errors

* Nice "person tracking" functionality to see who is affected by various errors

* Good asynchronous error reporting options in the Ruby adapter

* RQL query language for powerful searching (although it's still a little rough around the edges)

We ran into a few minor annoyances:

* The gem providing Resque support is developed by a third-party and doesn't seem to get much use (1 watcher and 4 stars as of the time of this review). Honeybadger provides native Resque support in the official Ruby gem.

* There doesn't seem to be any search functionality on the documentation page.

* No documentation and a slightly unintuitive workflow for one of the integrations we use.

Overall, Rollbar looks like a solid service that was easy to set up, easy to use, and has some powerful features for searching through past error data. We're looking forward to making the switch.

Comments: We have a small technical team at our startup. We switched to Rollbar recently from one of the other exception handling services because of their integrations and their UI.

We've integrated Rollbar across all of our staging, demo and production environments and the organization of multiple environments and the integrations with third-party services has allowed us to develop a very powerful workflow.

I would highly recommend adding Rollbar to your next project.

Comments: Before using Rollbar. We had our own hosted app for exceptions. We had lots of troubles with apps that had lots of exceptions. Rollbar helped us having our different apps grouped by our clients. We could setup integrations as Slack easily and we are planning to add more.

The UI its easy to use and the information is well displayed.

Before trying Rollbar we tried lots of other apps and we decided for Rollbar because it was easy to setup with our Rails, Java and Angular apps and had all the features we needed.

They also have a good Demo to convince your clients to use it.

Comments: We were looking for a solution to find out about all the errors our customers experienced but never informed us about. Rollbar bridges that gap between the errors and our development. We get notified immediately of issues with the site and can remediate before others experience it too. Another great feature is the community solutions. Instead of having to Google each error there is expert solutions provided in the interface. It is definitely a nice touch. Maybe in future for when there isn't a solution it could provide some google links etc. Overall love the product and can't wait to fix all the errors it is finding. The javascript code was easiest to implement for browser issues. The only issue I have now is getting it setup for the PHP tracking. We were able to get this setup without any developers so I imagine it will be easier for a dev to get the PHP error tracking.

Comments: You can't call yourself professional without error catching.

With the discovery of Rollbar we found a new world: catch the errors from the client side.

You can't always found all your bugs or replicate every scenario; this is where you need Rollbar.

It's amazing how we can handle the errors before the client come to us. We don't need to ask for screenshots or error messages.

It's incredible the level of details in every log, the UI feels very comfortable.

Once you try, you can't go back, so, be ready to be a professional developer.

Comments: We recently migrated our staffing application from Laravel 4 to Laravel 5. Rollbar has been a terrific help since the application needed a significant portion of its codebase updated. Installing Rollbar reporting in has helped me pick up errors that I would have otherwise missed.

While the error reporting is terrific, I've also appreciated the ability to receive daily digests for both errors as well as log items.

Rollbar has added peace of mind as this application deals with information that we don't want to lose. People aren't happy when a bug in the code erases their work!

There's no doubt in my mind that Rollbar has improved the quality of our application. Thanks for a great product!

Comments: At Castle.io we've been using Rollbar since the very beginning and we love it!

Simple to integrate in all our environments (Ruby and node.js), great Github / commit messages integration. You can start with a simple error tracking and then get more detailed reports and filtering as you grow - this has proved to be extremely useful to us.

Other things we've really grew to enjoy are comprehensive diff views for deployments, very detailed error occurrence details (including always helpful curl example) and graphs, which are extremely helpful when reviewing application status.

Much more reliable & stable than Airbrake.

We love Rollbar. When an error arises (it happens...) it allows us to quickly focus in solving it.

The implementation is super easy and with just a few lines of code, my app is sending bugs to their server.

On the website all the information is one click away and you can generate very useful reports, and always be on top of your app.

Their customer service is also very fast and pricing is great.

Comments: As Google App Engine for Python users, we have some reporting logs within the system that are already quite comprehensive and great for debugging.

When a team member decided that it was a great idea to implement rollbar, we were absolutely amazed by how much more comprehensive the error logging became. We can find very detailed information that GAE could not provide, such as request headers.

Also, it generates a report on each error and how often it happens. This makes it easy from a quality assurance and product management perspective on which errors that we should fix first. Additionally, it allows us to fix errors that customers have not reported.

It captures errors from a variety of languages with no hassle - including quick setup instructions that are so easy you can copy and paste them. Very competitive pricing, including a free plan that will cover a great many people's needs, makes this a no-brainer to log and collect errors painlessly. Say goodbye to an e-mail inbox filled with individual error reports. This is one of the secret weapons I use with my clients to impress them with proactive fixes of errors they haven't even reported yet. Rollbar all the things!
