Shipping Your Errors to Retrace is Easy

Retrace supports common logging frameworks for most programming languages. A simple configuration change is all that is needed.

  • .NET – NLog, log4net, Serilog
  • Java – logback, log4j

Retrace APM can also automatically collect exceptions being thrown in your code, including many hidden exceptions!

Logging libraries for many other languages are also supported in addition to our REST API.

View Web Request Details

For every error that you log, Retrace will attempt to collect any details about the current web request. These details are very valuable to get more context.

  • URL
  • Full-stack trace
  • User details
  • Header, session, and cookie values

Identify Unique Errors

One of the key features of any error tracking system is the ability to de-duplicate and uniquely identify errors. This enables you to track how often each individual error occurs and enable alerts for new errors.

You could send all of your errors to Elasticsearch, a database, or a log management system. Unfortunately, those systems don’t understand how to uniquely identify errors.

What our customers are saying

Monitor Error Rates

Quickly identify problems with your software by monitoring your error rates. Get notified instantly when problems suddenly arise with a database query, external web service, or other application dependencies.

Retrace APM will alert you and give you all the details to identify the root cause.

Ignore Specific Errors

Some errors happen all the time and are essentially noise. They could be errors that you can’t fix in your code or they could be random SQL timeouts or similar errors.

With Retrace you can ignore specific errors. They still get tracked if you need to see them, but they get suppressed from normal reporting so they don’t skew your reporting.

Advanced Error Reporting

Retrace collects a lot of context data about what is occurring when an error is thrown. This data can be very useful for error reporting purposes.

  • Quickly get a list of your customers or users being affected by an error
  • See every unique stack trace, URL, or method name that are all impacted by the error

Integrated errors make this the worlds best log aggregator.

Get all the details you wish your logs had with no code changes. Retrace automatically collects the details you need to quickly troubleshoot application errors.

  • Web request details
  • Full stack trace
  • Related log messages
