It's great for tracking bugs on your app. I don't think I can do anything else besides that...

Sentry
Great for standard web application performance monitoring, analytics and error reporting. Shows line level code errors, gives insight into performance issues (plugins, API issues, etc.). Automation and scheduled scanning in production gives client visibility into 'after deployment' value. Also lets a relatively small number of developers keep tabs on a handful of different site/applications without needing a bunch of tools. The UI is pretty complicated and can be overwhelming for new users. Documentation could be better for the learning curve,

Pros
SmartBear
  • The UI/UX is well designed. I have never been confused by any buttons/filters/settings, and everything is laid out in a neat and organized fashion.
  • Setup was super easy. I didn't have to do anything but read the documentation, which was well written.
  • The information captured by errors has everything I would need to debug an issue.

Sentry
  • Great web interface. Lots of data available in a really clean format, with filtering options and more.
  • Per-user exception tracking. User is complaining about something being broken? Look up their account ID in Sentry and you can see if they've run into any exceptions (with device information included, of course).
  • Source map uploading. Took a little while to figure this out but now we have our deploy script upload sourcemaps to Sentry on each deployment, meaning we get to see stack traces that aren't obfuscated!
  • Very generous free tier – 10,000 events per month. We're nowhere near that yet.

Cons
SmartBear
  • For really long bugs, it'd be nice if you hovered over the row and it expanded the text so you didn't have to click on the actual bug to view everything.
  • It would be nice if there was a filter for grouping bugs instead of searching by their name.
  • Honestly nothing else, I love 99% of Bugsnag.

  • Alert Configuration. Would be really helpful to have multiple logical groupings within the "If" section of a single configurable alert.
  • Alert Copying. Being able to copy an alert from one project to another would be super beneficial.
  • Alert Tags. Better UI around how we select which tags are getting sent with each alert instead of a tiny text box.

Sentry
We used Rollbar but didn't like the configuration its not easy. And also doesn't support wide features like Sentry although its a cheaper option but doesn't have the dash-boarding like Sentry and its was not easy to integrate webhooks for different purposes. Somehow many people in company where not able to understand Rollbar dashboard who were very much used to Sentry.

SmartBear
  • It has caught bugs on the spot, which allows us to quickly fix them.

Sentry
  • It helped stabilize our system in the beginning
  • We had to take it down later due to internal reasons and majorly because of cost-cutting process
  • If someone has a unstable system and have no way to figure out what to do, can use sentry at least temporarily along with some other APM to fix their system faster
