Making Your Job Easier
  • Error Management Across Environments

    Our integrations allow you to capture errors into a single system across your development, QA, production, and remote environments. Backtrace gives you confidence that no matter what the error, you have it captured.

  • The Gamut of Error Severity

    Whether you’re struggling with non-fatal errors, crashes, or both, Backtrace has you covered.

  • Dashboards
    From High-Level Trends to Details

    Quickly identify trends in errors, correlate metadata and dig deep into the details of an error with a single system. From bird’s eye to ground-level views, Backtrace fulfills your error management needs across altitudes.

  • Use Your Preferred Interface

    View and act on error data via your preferred interface: the Backtrace web UI, through Terminal, or workflow management tools like alerting, ticket management, and communication systems.

  • Built to Support Your Needs

    Attach and query against custom metadata like customer, datacenter, or version. Easily extend Backtrace to integrate into your customer workflow systems and debugging processes.

  • Quick and Easy Set Up

    Get started with Backtrace in matter of minutes, no matter your language. With just a few lines of code, start capturing all of your errors from JS, Python, Golang, and more. Dealing with native applications? Easily integrate with our snapshot tool and avoid code modification altogether.
