Review ofBigpandaBigpanda

Easily the #1 tool for event correlation and incident management in IT Ops world today.

Scale up, scale out and BigPanda still has your back. Easiest tool to get up and going, their documentation allowed me to integrate my own custom tools in a matter of hours.

Support follows up in real time and has gone out of their way to solve my correlation problems and drive real value inside our organization.

Lots of companies I respect were using it + open-source + great features and UI. Went for the hosted version, since it plays nice with Heroku. I like how they group together similar errors, give you the ability to mute events or mark them as solved. P.S. check out the Founder Stories feature we did on Sentry if you want to know how they started, its an awesome story.

The error and event tracking in Sentry is superb. Being able to assign the raw error to people along with all information at the time the event occurred means that we're tracking and fixing problems before they become apparent to customers. We use the self-hosted instance of Sentry.

Sentry is a very powerful error reporting tool. We use it both on front-end and back-end of Ataccama One. It proved to be invaluable in providing insights on our errors - what caused it, what user did before the error occured, stack trace, release tracking and more.

We use Grafana to view live stats relating to our servers such as memory and CPU usage. We also use Grafana to monitor our gaming servers for data such as latency and player counts. This allows us to generate effective analytics and see when problems arise.

Everyone likes graphs, right?! This isn't a tool we actively use right now, but paired with Prometheus we want to use it to have visual monitors on things like API cluster health, status, queue stats, DB/redis query and cache stats etc.

We use Sentry to gather our thrown non-checked exceptions in one place, so we don't have to crawl through all our logs manually. All standalone-applications, our website aswell as our game-servers are linked into sentry.

Grafana is used in combination with Prometheus to display the gathered stats and to monitor our physical servers aswell as their virtual applications. We also use Grafana to get notifications about irregularities.

Sentry is amazing, most of our systems send their exceptions to sentry. We couldn't live without it and get a much better understanding of how our code is behaving in the wild. Plus it integrates with Github.

Grafana takes the data from InfluxDB and presents it in a nice flexible format. Bonus points for built-in alerts and playlists (cycles through different dashboards automatically)
