Errors on your website means a bad user experience. And a bad user experience translates to lost revenue. That's why it's so important to monitor for exceptions and address them before customers grow frustrated. Airbrake can help.

Airbrake silently monitors all of your PHP applications 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, and alerts you immediately to all new errors. With Airbrake PHP error reporting, environment and user reports, as well as detailed stack traces make debugging easy. Airbrake tracks exceptions so that you can bypass sifting through those pesky — and massive — log files when hunting down an error. Instead, Airbrake alerts you immediately in the communication tool of your choice (email, Slack, etc.) so that you have instant insight into the line of broken code, the environment in which the error occurred, and the deploy associated with it.

Airbrake installs in your PHP app in no more than 3 minutes, and:

  • Provides all of the info necessary for identifying, assessing, and resolving errors quickly - stack traces, parameters, affected users
  • Makes managing and triaging errors simple - with error trends, deploy tracking, and detailed dashboards
  • Improves team productivity - custom workflow integrations for prioritizing and triaging errors

Do you log into your PHP application using Monolog? Airbrake integrates with PHP applications using the Monolog library.
