Kuoll vs Sentry: What are the differences?
Kuoll: Know how errors affect revenue. Automated error monitoring. Built around e-commerce KPIs; 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.
Kuoll and Sentry can be primarily classified as "Exception Monitoring" tools.
Some of the features offered by Kuoll are:
- Revenue loss reports - Take an overview of your revenue losses. Navigate down to specific issues (such as checkout errors) and user sessions. Fix bugs to get your revenues back.
- Data analytics - Analyze missed profits with the detailed data provided, including user events, network error codes, their descriptions, etc.
- Timely alerts - Keep your dev team up to date on production status. Smart, no-spam alerts allow developers to fix critical issues ASAP.
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.
Sentry is an open source tool with 21.4K GitHub stars and 2.44K 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...
