RUM can leave questions unanswered. Honeycomb for Frontend Observability (now in EA) doesn’t.

Efficiently improve your web app with Honeycomb for Frontend Observability

Going beyond legacy real user monitoring (RUM), Honeycomb for Frontend Observability gives engineers the unified, granular data they need to quickly pinpoint issues across their stack and understand user impact.

Don’t be left guessing with a Real User Monitoring tool. Find answers quickly with Honeycomb for Frontend Observability.

Quickly instrument your frontend with the Honeycomb web instrumentation package and connect your frontend traces to your backend traces for efficient issue localization.

As an OpenTelemetry wrapper, the Honeycomb web instrumentation collects attribution data for Core Web Vitals out of the box to pinpoint the root causes of poor scores. Add all the custom attributes you need to replicate frontend issues like app state, user info, or data from tools like FullStory or Sentry for no extra cost and 60-day retention.

Before Honeycomb, we would just speculate wildly about who was impacted by a given issue, or what changes would affect which customer. Now we know more, and guess less.

Pinpoint and prioritize frontend issues

Jump into frontend investigations with the new Web Launchpad in Honeycomb.

Review visualizations of your Core Web Vitals and performance data alongside end-to-end traces for greater frontend visibility.

Quickly identify the cause of performance issues. Filter using ‘Group By’ on high-level attributes then leverage BubbleUp to discover which attributes (like page URLs and elements) correlate with a poor rating.

All high-cardinality data is available to query on and do month over month analysis—with no pre-aggregation. Each visualization leads to a Honeycomb query that can be modified with Query Builder, so it’s easy to drill down to the most relevant scope.
