Real-time system debugging

Find the critical issues that logs and metrics can't see. Query and visualize millions of events in milliseconds, and see the raw data behind every result.

Which users experienced page load latencies over 500ms yesterday?
Why are my reads so slow? Are there other operations hogging the write lock?
Why are some of User 97257's requests failing intermittently?
Why did API latency suddenly increase this morning between 10 and 11?
How did my code change yesterday affect the speed of the batch endpoint?
How well is traffic distributed across AZs and hosts right now? How has it changed recently?
Which customers rely the most on our node SDK?
Which clients are still sending traffic to deprecated endpoints?
Why is this table being slammed with queries? Did the code change or just customer usage patterns?

Play with a live scenario

Explore a public, no-strings-attached version of Honeycomb. Debug a recent, real Honeycomb outage with anonymized data, and see the power of observability in less than 15 minutes.

Achieve Observability with the breadth of Events and the depth of Traces


Honeycomb’s event-centered model lets software owners keep the context about each unit of work that is lost when pre-aggregating many disconnected metrics. Pull events out of the noise. Create derived columns to graph more complex calculations of different dimensions and headers.

Trace the full life-cycle of events between services, code, systems, and storage layers. Honeycomb Tracing shows the time and resources taken to service any request, making it easy to diagnose bottlenecks, optimize performance, and understand how your system processes requests.

“I've spent my fair share of time drowning in metrics, dashboards & logs, and Honeycomb’s vision is like a glass of cold water in the desert.”

“After spending 10 years at Google I thought I had a good handle on the different techniques to monitor what is going on with services. But Honeycomb changes the game by supporting fast exploration over high cardinality data. It has super powers over traditional monitoring.”

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