Detailed stack trace with inline error and logsWeb Apps Dashboard:
The Apps Page gives you a high-level overview of all applications found and monitored across all servers in each environment. Click on any app to take you to the App Dashboard to view more information for a particular app.Apps Dashboard:
The App Dashboard is a powerful monitoring and troubleshooting perspective that gives you a view of application health across one or more environments.Performance (APM+) Dashboard:
The Performance section will give you a report of how well the application is performing overall, as perceived by your users.  A graph will allow you to view all requests by Satisfaction by viewing "Fast", "Sluggish", "Too Slow", or "Failed" types of requests.  Another report includes graphs of HTTP Error%, Satisfaction Score%, and Page Load Time.  Lastly, you will have the ability to sort each page request of your App by different categories: Satisfaction, Slowest page, Failed pages, pages hit, and total load time.  By clicking on an individual page a Performance Details page with further information about that specific page's health, performance, and errors will be displayed.Performance Traces:
One of the ways we strive to deliver relevant insights is to only collect traces around interesting requests. Some examples of these request types that are interesting would be faster than normal, slower than normal, new web requests, requests introducing new SQL, requests introducing new exceptions, or abnormal satisfaction scores. Under performing requests will be profiled more often than fast requests. As long as the app is getting steady traffic Retrace should be saving a trace every 5 to 15 minutes.Errors Dashboard:
From the Errors Dashboard, you can get an overview of all the exceptions of all your applications across different environments. It gives you a central location to view details about your errors.Logs Dashboard:
Find contextual insights about your apps that can assist you in solving any error you might face. View all logging messages in an inline view across all apps, on all servers, and in all environments. Along with this comes the ability to tail log files in real time and search through all the logs of a given app.

We are using Stackify Retrace every time we have to capture critical details about what our Ruby or Python code is doing. The main issue solved for us by Retrace is the fact that it enables us to track custom methods in our code and also that it supports non web applications.
  • It combines code profiling with application logger.
  • It is safe for production usage.
  • No native support for Google Cloud.
  • Neo4j integration is not straight forward.
Stackify Retrace is a perfect fit in case your application executes multiple external HTTP requests towards SOAP or REST web services and you need to track and log these calls. It works really well if your code is deployed on Azure or Amazon Web Services cloud platform, however it will not work if you are using Google Cloud.
Submitting a ticket to Stackify Retrace support team is very easy and the response is always within a few hours. In case of some serious problems they are able to provide assistance coming directly from one of their developers what decreases significantly the amount of time needed to figure out what is causing the issue.

APM Plus is used by the entire company from sending out purchase orders to sending customer invoices and sales order acknowledgments and even advanced ship notices when something ships out for a customer. Internally APM Plus is used as a document archive to get the exact document that was sent to the customer. This can be used to follow up with customer statements to help customers see what they owe with great consistency. The emails can be sent individually or in groups or sent to different companies. APM Plus can even fax when email is not possible.


  • APM Plus has a searchable archive that makes it easy to find a previously sent document.
  • APM plus can automatically decide if the email address isn't present on a document, send it by fax. If no fax number exists the document is sent back to sender for evaluation.
  • Sending to APM Plus is as simple as sending a document to a Printer! APM Plus does the rest!
  • To set up the fields that APM Plus monitors, you need to map each field area on each document.
  • APM Plus could use a way to link the documents back into the finance or business software so you can find the document under the PO, Sales Order, Invoice, etc.
  • APM Plus setup is only for the professionals. There are many areas that need tweaking on setup, having a better default setup would lessen the learning curve to set it up for use.
If I need to change a logo design on the invoice, the new logo is slightly larger or smaller so the type below the logo is in a different area than before. In this case, you would need to load the new version of the document into APM Plus and redo the mapping of the field areas to properly grab the information needed to process the document. Without doing this, the document could fail or go to the wrong archive based on the fields.

We were using New Relic, but it wasn't providing us the info we wanted and it was so expensive that we couldn't afford having it on all production servers. I've been using Stackify in a .net, Azure based webapp; the app is with high traffic subscription service, and solid services is essential. In one case we were using Stackify to identify an issue that made the site slow occasionally; it was very hard to pin point the source of the problem. Once installed it was a very fast process and we identified the combination of issues that lead to this behavior. Having the log and error data as part of the detailed trace was tremendous help. And seeing all the logs recorded when an exception was thrown is a cool little feature. Personally I can watch their real-time tailing all day long.
  • Integration of performance management with log management so you get the parameters sent
  • In-line log and error data in trace
  • Integration of error and log data, so in one click you can see all the logs recorded when an error was thrown
  • Very reasonably priced
  • Need to improve their mobile support
  • Documentation improvment
If you're a Java or .net shop they will do excellent. I believe that for PHP, Ruby, Java and few others they have only the error and log management and the application and server monitoring.
