Exceptionless vs Sentry: What are the differences?
Exceptionless: Real-time error reporting for your apps. Real-time exception reporting for ASP.NET, Web API, WebForms, WPF, Console, and MVC applications. Includes event organization, notifications, and more; Sentry: Cut time to resolution for app errors from five hours to five minutes. Sentry is an open-source platform for workflow productivity, aggregating errors from across the stack in real time. 500K developers use Sentry to get the code-level context they need to resolve issues at every stage of the app lifecycle.
Exceptionless and Sentry can be categorized as "Exception Monitoring" tools.
Some of the features offered by Exceptionless are:
- Error notifications, including critical and regressions
- Intelligent grouping of exceptions, logs, and features
- Detailed error reports, including stacktrace
On the other hand, Sentry provides the following key features:
- 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.
Exceptionless and Sentry are both open source tools. Sentry with 21.4K GitHub stars and 2.45K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Exceptionless with 1.55K GitHub stars and 387 GitHub forks.

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 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.
