Observability means

Happy Customers,Happy Developers,Seeing prod in hi-res

Own Production in Hi-Res

With Honeycomb, you not only see production more clearly – you resolve issues in a fraction of the time. Teams stay proactive and get ahead of problems as new code is shipped and customer impact is minimal. Everyone has the same visibility and confidence level because each team-member has access to the most granular data – logs, metrics and traces for real-time analysis.

Across Eng & DevOps Lifecycle: Observe, Improve, Debug

Ongoing Development

As you continuously ship new releases, work with engineering to deploy Honeycomb markers so you manage around release date and debug in real time. Understand adoption and usage and share with product teams.

Supporting Customer Success

Performance Optimization

Your system's running slow, but which part and which specific service? With Honeycomb, discover in real-time where latencies are occurring and use tracing views to precisely pinpoint the problem across your distributed services.

Rapid Incident Response

Production issues are a fact of life. Locate problems very quickly across complex, distributed systems. Validate and assess severity and impact. Experience less technical debt and more innovation.

Play with a Real Outage Scenario

"The ability to visualize and explore events in realtime transforms the way your team thinks about operations and systems design."

Honeycomb APM Powers Production Excellence

Ask Any Question

You know there's an issue with production and you need to resolve it fast. Start with query history to gain context, then run new queries to quickly introspect current system data.

Analyze Not Search

Trace Services

Switch to the right visualization in context and understand all services behavior. Easily view trace spans to spot errors and latency, native or third party, and optimize.

Distributed Tracing

Know Your Outliers

Where in your code does a problem lie? Navigate quickly using heatmaps that BubbleUp outliers compared to baseline and drill down to the raw data to pinpoint what's happening.

What's BubbleUp?

Level-Up Your Team

Curate and share query history with team members on-call. Elevate the entire team's understanding with fast access to analysis and everyone becomes more efficient.

Framework for an Observability Maturity Model

"Observability" is trending, but how do you get there? Honeycomb’s observability experts combine their knowledge to create an initial framework that focuses on goals (vs. tools) and asks orgs to honestly look at "how well are we doing?" in 5 key areas that affect observability.

The New Rules of Sampling

One of the most common questions we get is how to control costs while still achieving the level of observability needed to debug, troubleshoot, and understand what's happening in production. We break down our approach to sampling...
