Not on the current edition
This blip is not on the current edition of the Radar. If it was on one of the last few editions it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the Radar Understand more

Adopt ? We feel strongly that the industry should be adopting these items. We use them when appropriate on our projects.

Sentry has become the default choice for many of our teams when it comes to front-end error reporting. The convenience of features like the grouping of errors or defining patterns for discarding errors with certain parameters helps deal with the flood of errors coming from many end user devices. Integrating Sentry in your CD pipeline allows you to upload source maps for more efficient error debugging, and it helps easily trace back which errors occurred in which version of the software. We also appreciate that while Sentry is primarily a SaaS offering, its source code is publicly available and it can be used for free for smaller use cases and self-hosting.

Trial ? Worth pursuing. It is important to understand how to build up this capability. Enterprises should try this technology on a project that can handle the risk.

Sentry is a cross-platform application monitoring tool with a focus on error reporting. Tools like Sentry distinguish themselves from traditional logging solutions such as the ELK Stack in their focus on discovering, investigating and fixing errors. Sentry has been around for a while and supports several languages and frameworks. We've used Sentry in many projects, and it has been really useful in tracking errors, finding out if a commit actually fixed an issue and alerting us if an issue resurfaces due to a regression.

Assess ? Worth exploring with the goal of understanding how it will affect your enterprise.

Sentry is an error-tracking tool that helps monitor and fix errors in real time. Error tracking and management tools such as Sentry distinguish themselves from traditional logging solutions such as the ELK Stack in their focus on discovering, investigating and fixing errors. Sentry has been around for some time and is quite popular — error-tracking tools are increasingly useful with the current focus on "mean time to recovery". Sentry — with its integration options with Github, Hipchat, Heroku, Slack, among other platforms — enables us to keep a close eye on our apps. It can provide error notifications following a release, enable us to track whether new commits actually fix the issue and alert us if an issue comes back due to a regression.
