Zero-instrumentation, 360 degree coverage of errors, outages and service degradation. Deploy with confidence and be your team's devops hero.

Monitoring — like web development — is complex. Every day we hear about new tools and techniques, but they're usually for big organizations. Ones with dedicated devops teams and so much traffic they care more about “error rates” than individual user experiences. When you're on a smaller team, this doesn't work so well. You know instrumentation doesn’t pay the bills. Customers do. When they encounter a problem you need clear actionable intelligence, not walls of charts and reams of logs.

What if there were a monitoring tool for developers like us? A single tool that could answer at a glance:

  • Are any front-end or back-end systems raising errors?
  • Is the site unreachable or unusually slow?
  • Are scheduled tasks completing as expected?
  • Which customers have been affected by errors today?
That’s Honeybadger. We’re the application health monitoring tool built for you, not Google.

Honeybadger is used by tens of thousands of pragmatic developers in companies of all sizes who want to focus on shipping great, error-free products instead of wasting time building and maintaining a bespoke monitoring stack.
