Sentry launches new application monitoring features for JavaScript developers

by Joseph K. Clark

Application monitoring company Sentry has announced Release Health capabilities are now available by default in its JavaScript SDK. The company’s Release Health insights are designed to provide teams with error and performance monitoring to get actionable data and resolve errors and issues quickly. 

According to the company, this is especially important as frontend developer popularity and business significance increases. Sentry reports nearly 70% of developers are using JavaScript to create rich user experiences

“Code is increasingly becoming the center of every customer experience, and when it fails, the business fails,” said Milin Desai, CEO, Sentry. “With Sentry for JavaScript, application monitoring is more than just a failsafe for frontend development — extending Release Health capabilities to JavaScript projects is key to helping developers understand how each release is performing and what’s required to deploy more frequently.”

Release Health provides early warning into software releases. With the latest update, JavaScript developers can now capture session data to see crashes by session, and user and how many users are leveraging the newest release. Sessions are defined by a page view, refresh, and multiple browser tabsIn addition, the JavaScript SDK will now notify users about how many new issues are associated with their latest release. 

The update also enables users to trace page loads, poor-performing API calls, slow database queries, related errors, and identify where mistakes were introduced. Other updates include the company’s Discover tool that allows users to detect the root cause of an issue and WebAssembly support.
