Analyze Not Search

Analytics-First Debugging Starts with a Query Engine

An “analytics-based” system ingests structured data and instantly provides the ability to query, perform mathematical comparisons, and provide visualizations to more easily spot trends, patterns, or outliers.

The analytics and visualization provided by Honeycomb allows you to begin to understand the nature of the problem right away and at the same time drill into the details of what is really going on.

How Honeycomb Has Changed the Way Travis CI Operates Their Business

“So many questions that we were unable to explore in the past are now 3 clicks away. Queries that would take half an hour to run against our Postgres read-replica can now be run in seconds. Better yet, we get more insight into how our customers are using our product.”  —Igor Weidler, Travis CI

Travis CI and Honeycomb

Break Down Your Data on Every Dimension

The really special thing about Honeycomb is that it lets you break down on both the obvious fields, and the surprising ones.

Lots of systems let you slice and dice by, for example, the country that a user was logging in from — but Honeycomb lets you break down on every dimension in your data.

The Core Analysis Loop

“Before Honeycomb, we couldn't really observe what was going on across the entire system. Honeycomb Tracing makes everything transparent again.”

The Power You Need to Dig In, No Need to Learn A New Language

Blazing Fast Queries

Honeycomb’s friendly query builder and speedy storage layer get you answers to your questions — fast. Every Honeycomb account has a Fast Query Window that provides real-time querying for recent data. You choose what data, and how much of it, gets the high-performance treatment.

Share Query History

Bookmark and organize queries into a shared brain of important entry points into a dataset. Debugging is a team sport — even if the team is “past you, present you, and future you,” and Honeycomb Boards and shared, searchable team history provide great jumping-off points for deeper investigation.

Calculate with Derived Columns

Derived columns are a powerful way to manipulate and explore data in Honeycomb. Conceptually, derived columns let you associate extra metadata to events, without needing to change the structure of the raw event.
