New Relic vs Sentry: What are the differences?
What is New Relic? SaaS Application Performance Management for Ruby, PHP, .Net, Java, Python, and Node.js Apps. New Relic is the all-in-one web application performance tool that lets you see performance from the end user experience, through servers, and down to the line of application code.
What is Sentry? Cut time to resolution for app errors from five hours to five minutes. Sentry is an open-source platform for workflow productivity, aggregating errors from across the stack in real time. 500K developers use Sentry to get the code-level context they need to resolve issues at every stage of the app lifecycle.
New Relic belongs to "Performance Monitoring" category of the tech stack, while Sentry can be primarily classified under "Exception Monitoring".
Some of the features offered by New Relic are:
- Performance Data Retention
- Real-User Response Time, Throughput, & Breakdown by Layer
- App Response Time, Throughput, & Breakdown by Component
On the other hand, Sentry provides the following key features:
- Real-Time Updates: For the first time, developers can fix code-level issues anywhere in the stack well before users even encounter an error.
- Complete Context: Spend more time where it matters, rather than investing in low-impact issues.
"Easy setup", "Really powerful" and "Awesome visualization" are the key factors why developers consider New Relic; whereas "Consolidates similar errors and makes resolution easy", "Email Notifications" and "Open source" are the primary reasons why Sentry is favored.
