Opbeat vs Sentry: What are the differences?

What is Opbeat? Application monitoring for developers. Opbeat is application monitoring for developers, and gives you performance metrics, error logging, release tracking and workflow in one smart product.

What is 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.

Opbeat and Sentry can be categorized as "Exception Monitoring" tools.

Some of the features offered by Opbeat are:

  • Application performance metrics
  • Error logging with smart grouping
  • Code integration - stacktraces annotated with code authors for faster debugging and coordination

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.
  • Integrate Everywhere: Drop-in integration for every major platform, framework, and language -- JavaScript, Python, PHP, Ruby, Node, Java, .NET, mobile.

"Free for small teams" is the top reason why over 23 developers like Opbeat, while over 215 developers mention "Consolidates similar errors and makes resolution easy" as the leading cause for choosing Sentry.

Sentry is an open source tool with 21.2K GitHub stars and 2.42K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Sentry's open source repository on GitHub.

    There's a few reviews above that indicate that there's no rate or usage limits. There are. At the time I wrote this, there's a limit of 250 events per minute.

    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.

    Sentry is amazing, most of our systems send their exceptions to sentry. We couldn't live without it and get a much better understanding of how our code is behaving in the wild. Plus it integrates with Github.
