Cloud logging for .NET web applications using ELMAH. Find bugs before you go live. Powerful search, API, integration with Slack, GitHub, Visual Studio and more.
Sentry and elmah.io can be primarily classified as "Exception Monitoring" tools.
Some of the features offered by Sentry are:
- Real-Time Updates: For the first time, developers can fix code-level issues anywhere in the stack well before users even encounter an error.
- Complete Context: Spend more time where it matters, rather than investing in low-impact issues.
On the other hand, elmah.io provides the following key features:
- Error Management
- Deployment Tracking
- Uptime Monitoring
Sentry is an open source tool with 22.1K GitHub stars and 2.54K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Sentry's open source repository on GitHub.
I essentially inherited a Shopify theme that was originally created by an agency. After discovering a number of errors being thrown in the Dev Console just by scrolling through the website, I needed more visibility over any errors happening in the field. Having used both Sentry and TrackJS, I always got lost in the TrackJS interface, so I felt more comfortable introducing Sentry. The Sentry free tier is also very generous, although it turns out the theme threw over 15k errors in less than a week.
I highly recommend setting up error tracking from day one. Theoretically, you should never need to upgrade from the free tier if you're keeping on top of the errors...
