Kibana vs Sentry: What are the differences?
Kibana: Explore & Visualize Your Data. Kibana is an open source (Apache Licensed), browser based analytics and search dashboard for Elasticsearch. Kibana is a snap to setup and start using. Kibana strives to be easy to get started with, while also being flexible and powerful, just like Elasticsearch; 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.
Kibana belongs to "Monitoring Tools" category of the tech stack, while Sentry can be primarily classified under "Exception Monitoring".
Some of the features offered by Kibana are:
- Flexible analytics and visualization platform
- Real-time summary and charting of streaming data
- Intuitive interface for a variety of users
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.
"Easy to setup" is the primary reason why developers consider Kibana over the competitors, whereas "Consolidates similar errors and makes resolution easy" was stated as the key factor in picking Sentry.
Kibana 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 Kibana with 12.4K GitHub stars and 4.8K GitHub forks.
Airbnb, Uber Technologies, and Instagram are some of the popular companies that use Sentry, whereas Kibana is used by Airbnb, DigitalOcean, and 9GAG. Sentry has a broader approval, being mentioned in 1341 company stacks & 434 developers stacks; compared to Kibana, which is listed in 907 company stacks and 479 developer stacks.
