Why Request Metrics is better than Sentry?
Finding Problems that Matter
Not every error, API bug, or performance slowdown impacts the users. Request Metrics helps you focus on the problems that matter by showing you issues correlated with key business metrics like conversions, bounces, or session time.
No Queries–Just Answers
No data model or query language to learn. Interesting activity is surfaced automatically, with easy filtering options to explore.
Pricing that Doesn't Hold Your Data Hostage
Tools like Sentry price by the number of events you send. When you have an incident with millions of extra logs, they take advantage by increasing your price, hiding your data, or metering your usage.
Request Metrics aligns it's price with your success instead of your failure. You only pay more when you monitor more users and sessions. Events and errors are always included.
