Overall Satisfaction with Stackify

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
  • We shorten the time we fix app issues
  • We spend a lot less time digging through data
  • We can be proactive and see issues as they are trending before the completely explode
  • I have APM on all production servers so I can catch issues as they happen
  • I no longer get 2000 email on an issue but rather one full of data
It is a very impressive tool which doesn't overwhelm you with unnecessary data. They have combination of tools that haven't seen by any other company which makes it a very powerful tool
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.
