Bugfender vs Bugsnag: What are the differences?

What is Bugfender? Cloud logging for your apps, not only crashes matter. See the NSLogs of your customer applications remotely from your computer, it’s like having a remote Xcode console viewer. This way you can fix bugs easily.

What is Bugsnag? Bugsnag provides production error monitoring and management for front-end, mobile and back-end applications. Bugsnag captures errors from your web, mobile and back-end applications, providing instant visibility into user impact. Diagnostic data and tools are included to help your team prioritize, debug and fix exceptions fast.

Bugfender can be classified as a tool in the "Log Management" category, while Bugsnag is grouped under "Exception Monitoring".

I am also considering Logstash.

I want to add a remote debugging tool for my application, and my application is currently live in 10 countries. So, the scale is quite big. Can you help me choose the best client-side debugging tool? Also, are there any tools available in the market that provide 3rd party server integration too?

Bugfender

Bugfender is mainly focused on getting the application logs, which is very useful for debugging and reproducing errors reported by users. Also has a "user feedback" option, that lets you get feedback from your users and get the application logs alongside it. Bugsnag and Crashlytics are more focused on "error analytics", mostly crashes, and they're more advanced in terms of analytics and detection of trends in crashes. I hope I helped! Disclaimer: I'm one of the founders of Bugfender.

Bugsnag

Bugsnag is one of my favorite tools. I must admit that I can't compare with the other two variants, because I only have experience with Sentry and Bugsnag. Both are fine, but I lean towards Bugsnag. With the help of Bugsnag I'm able to see quite clearly what went wrong, and it shows the affected users (and in my case even the tenant as we're operating a multi-tenant application).

Regarding Logstash: I've been using Bugsnag as a complementary tool with Logging + APM platforms like NewRelic or Datadog. What I mean is, go for Logstash if that's the log monitoring tool you like, but Bugsnag and Logstash are not interchangeable, and it perfectly makes sense to use both.

What are some alternatives to Bugfender and Bugsnag?
Crashlytics
Instead of just showing you the stack trace, Crashlytics performs deep analysis of each and every thread. We de-prioritize lines that don't matter while highlighting the interesting ones. This makes reading stack traces easier, faster, and far more useful! Crashlytics' intelligent grouping can take 50,000 crashes, distill them down to 20 unique issues, and then tell you which 3 are the most important to fix.
Logstash
Logstash is a tool for managing events and logs. You can use it to collect logs, parse them, and store them for later use (like, for searching). If you store them in Elasticsearch, you can view and analyze them with Kibana.
ELK
It is the acronym for three open source projects: Elasticsearch, Logstash, and Kibana. Elasticsearch is a search and analytics engine. Logstash is a server‑side data processing pipeline that ingests data from multiple sources simultaneously, transforms it, and then sends it to a "stash" like Elasticsearch. Kibana lets users visualize data with charts and graphs in Elasticsearch.
Papertrail
Papertrail helps detect, resolve, and avoid infrastructure problems using log messages. Papertrail's practicality comes from our own experience as sysadmins, developers, and entrepreneurs.
Fluentd
Fluentd collects events from various data sources and writes them to files, RDBMS, NoSQL, IaaS, SaaS, Hadoop and so on. Fluentd helps you unify your logging infrastructure.
