When you report errors to Rollbar, they are placed in a queue that is processed continously. We analyze your raw errors and fingerprint them to de-dupe; then we send any relevant notifications. Typical processing time is about 2 seconds.
Notifications are configurable per-environment and per-severity-level, and available for the following triggers:
- Item first seen ("new item")
- Item reactivated
- Power-of-10 repeat occurrence (10th, 100th, 1000th, etc.)
- Item resolved
- Item reopened
For email, the emails include most of the information available in the web interface—exception, traceback, url, params, etc—so you can often diagnose and fix with just the email.
We also offer a daily email report summarizing what happened each day.
