Actionable data you can trust

When you're in the discovery phase, high-level charts and dashboards aren't enough. But you don't want to be overwhelmed with data either. You need accurate and relevant information that gives context to the problem. With Raygun, the diagnostic information you need is never more than a few clicks away.

Don't just know that something is wrong, know why.

With Raygun, it's easy to identify the worst performing parts of your applications, fix the problem and measure the changes. View:
  1. Call times with highly detailed visual flame charts, not just a static call tree
  2. Precise method level timings, not high-level overviews without any detail
  3. Correct detail at the method level, not incomplete diagnostic information
  4. Each and every request available, not uncontrollable samples
  5. Complete clarity on the root cause of issues

Solve performance bottlenecks with greater speed and accuracy than traditional APM tools

Move faster with built-in issue detection and task creation

Visually comprehend what's really happening within your code, across every millisecond during the performance profile. Know exactly which function was executed, how long it ran for and where it was called from.
Effortlessly find root causes and fix issues quickly. In-depth transaction details that show exact method calls, including the external dependencies for apps of any size and complexity.
Drill down into any application performance issue, including the exact line of code, function, database or API call causing the problem. Never be left guessing where the issue lies.

Build custom dashboards and monitor what matters to you most

Who doesn't love a nice dashboard? Raygun has powerful dashboarding functionality that lets you build your own views of the data you want to see. Completely customizable, these dashboards cover metrics including Apdex score, performance trends over time, individual or multi application views.

Reproduce errors faster

"After installing Raygun APM, we attempted to reproduce a recent production issue that took a while to track down at the time. A brief look at the flame charts in Raygun quickly pointed to the problem in a fraction of the time it had taken us before."
