Pingdom vs Sentry: What are the differences?
What is Pingdom? Uptime and performance monitoring made easy. Pingdom is an uptime monitoring service. When problems happen with a site that Pingdom monitors, it immediately alerts the owner so the problem can be taken care of.
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.
Pingdom can be classified as a tool in the "Website Monitoring" category, while Sentry is grouped under "Exception Monitoring".
Some of the features offered by Pingdom are:
- Uptime & Response time reports

On the other hand, Sentry provides the following key features:

- Complete Context: Spend more time where it matters, rather than investing in low-impact issues.
