Why Rollbar is a better alternative to Sentry

Debug and resolve errors faster

Rollbar collects, aggregates and displays errors in real time. Get instantaneous insight into your errors by viewing stack traces, exception messages and related errors. Rollbar shows you the most relevant information first and lets you drill down to specific occurrences for more advanced troubleshooting.

View account-wide statistics

See a consolidated view of items, code versions and deployments from all of your applications in the Account Dashboard. Monitor errors in real time for all projects from a single unified interface, then drill down into individual occurrences for more in-depth troubleshooting. The Account Dashboard is included in all plans.

Collect and retain more data

Rollbar stores all of your data for 180 days: twice as long as Sentry and without sampling. You can customize the retention period and rate limit on all paid plans, or set a sampling rate in the Rollbar SDK. For regulatory compliance, Rollbar can auto-remove People Tracking data for users and IP addresses no longer linked to an error.

Replay errors effortlessly

Reproduce end user actions by replaying HTTP requests. Rollbar automatically collects request headers for JavaScript, Rails and other web application frameworks. No need to install plugins or integrate with third-party services.

Query with powerful searches and filters

Search, sort and filter your data using the powerful Rollbar Query Language(RQL). Retrieve your project’s items, occurrences and deployments using a using a fast and flexible SQL-like syntax. You can even query data created from custom fields.
