Visualize to Investigate

See Your World More Clearly

The first step to solving a problem is identifying it. The hard part is knowing which part of the code is causing the problem .

Honeycomb’s rich set of visualization features bring the data you need to the forefront so you can move quickly to resolving the issue.

Investigate system performance by any axis to fix latency issues and improve overall speed. Isolate signal from noise and dive deep into tracking down problems with Honeycomb’s interactive visual charts ranging from histograms to line graphs and heat-maps.

Visualization is key to complex analysis

BubbleUp - Surface Important Details Automatically

Honeycomb’s BubbleUp feature uniquely detects outliers, compared to the baseline and speeds up debugging by showing you potential places to look for signal within your data.

BubbleUp shows you which fields or dimensions are the most obvious best next steps in your investigation, automatically.

What took hours or even days can take minutes or seconds giving you valuable time back. The result – happy teams and even happier customers.
