Comments: We were able to solve some major performance issues and hidden exceptions. Also we found some issues we could not see in our logs. The help from the support was amazing and fast when we had a question.

Pros: It was setup within a couple of minutes. Not much later we started to get the first results and were able to create the first tickets to improve our customer experience and performance.

Cons: Currently not many languages are supported but this is something which as seems in newsletters will be changed soon.

Fix the important issues first!

Pros: Plumbr allows you to see how many of your users are affected by a bug or a slow api, so that you can tackle the important issues first. Plumbr drastically reduces the time spent on analyzing bugs. Alerting via Slack works great for our team!
Overall a great tool for monitoring complex web applications.

Cons: It takes some time to get used to the user interface but support is very helpful to you started.

Comments: We had issues with an overloaded application which caused disruption to business services. The crashes were very frequent and had a big impact on our reputation. The aim was to get the application stable again. We did not have any problems for 2,5 years and the problems arrived suddenly.

Pros: Easy of use in detection of errors - it is visually easy to detect any anomalies in the behaviour of our application. Thank to Plumbr we found most costly interactions and managed to stabilize the environment.

Cons: It is based on java - nowadays we are using plenty of different technologies alltogether.

A solid tool

Comments: Overall a good experience, it is a solid product, with good support. The new licensing format has put it out of reach for more than basic use.

Pros: Provides insights to be able to troubleshoot issues that would otherwise be more difficult.

Cons: Unless you go with very expensive options, different setups can be a bit pedantic.

Don't try Plumbing yourself!

Pros: Very easy to install and configure. Worked easily in a micro services environment. I also like that when used along with the browser agent the UI provides a great summary of user experience rather than just low level details of where your code is slowing down - but if provides that level of detail as well. Yes you can instrument your own code and provide the level of detail that Plumbr provides - but why would you!

Cons: Nothing really comes to mind as a negative when it comes to Plumbr
