Conceived initially by Microsoft for crash reports on Windows, minidumps have become an accessible format for all sorts of native crashes. You can generate and upload minidumps yourself using Breakpad, use a higher-level SDK for platforms with built-in support for native crashes like Cocoa or Electron, and use them to triage issues with C++.
Collect native crash events in your issue stream, grouped by their crash location. See detailed stack traces with resolved function names, file location, and CPU register values. Assign issues to the engineers — or teams — who wrote the code that broke everything. (Obviously that would never, ever be you.)
Event trails detail what the app was doing before any error occurred. Is the problem actually outside of your code? Was it caused by something another team wrote that broke the API you’re using? Sentry can tell you that too.
Record events even when devices are offline or in airplane mode, then send errors as soon as connection is regained.
Record environment and state details so you can recreate bugs, whether you’re targeting Windows, macOS, Linux, iOS, or Android.
Use Sentry’s tag distribution graph to isolate and prioritize any error by seeing how often it occurs in context.
Find answers to key questions: How actionable is the error? Can I just ignore it?
You can get started for free. Pricing depends on the number of monthly events, transactions, and attachments that you send Sentry. For more details, visit our pricing page.
Sentry doesn’t impact a web site’s performance.
If you look at the configuration options for when you initialize Sentry in your code, you’ll see there’s nothing regarding minimizing its impact on your app’s performance. This is because our team of SDK engineers already developed Sentry with this in mind.
Sentry is a listener/handler for errors that asynchronously sends out the error/event to Sentry.io. This is non-blocking. The error/event only goes out if this is an error.
Global handlers have almost no impact as well, as they are native APIs provided by the browsers.
