OverOps vs Sentry: What are the differences?

Developers describe OverOps as "Know When and Why Code Breaks in Production". OverOps detects all caught and uncaught exceptions, logged and HTTP errors. Installs in 1 minute and no configuration needed. Build and runs on the JVM - Java/Scala and all other JVM languages are supported. On the other hand, Sentry is detailed as "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.

OverOps and Sentry can be primarily classified as "Exception Monitoring" tools.

Some of the features offered by OverOps are:

  • Java exception analysis
  • Track logged errors
  • Track HTTP errors

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.
  • Integrate Everywhere: Drop-in integration for every major platform, framework, and language -- JavaScript, Python, PHP, Ruby, Node, Java, .NET, mobile.

"In-depth error analysis with variable values in product" is the top reason why over 4 developers like OverOps, while over 215 developers mention "Consolidates similar errors and makes resolution easy" as the leading cause for choosing Sentry.

Sentry is an open source tool with 21.2K GitHub stars and 2.42K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Sentry's open source repository on GitHub.

Decisions about OverOps and Sentry

I essentially inherited a Shopify theme that was originally created by an agency. After discovering a number of errors being thrown in the Dev Console just by scrolling through the website, I needed more visibility over any errors happening in the field. Having used both Sentry and TrackJS, I always got lost in the TrackJS interface, so I felt more comfortable introducing Sentry. The Sentry free tier is also very generous, although it turns out the theme threw over 15k errors in less than a week.

I highly recommend setting up error tracking from day one. Theoretically, you should never need to upgrade from the free tier if you're keeping on top of the errors...
