New Relic vs Loupe
What Is New Relic
New Relic is a application monitoring platform service designed to provide insight into application performance and trends primarly for hosted applications (like web applications).
What Is Loupe
Loupe is an application logging platform created by Gibraltar Software designed to provide a great logging experience coupled with powerful application error analysis to ensure a development team can focus on the right problems that are happening in the field - whether that’s just in your data center or around the world deployed to thousands of computers.
How Do They Work Together?
While New Relic is focused on the performance and traffic trends of your application at the moment Loupe’s intelligent error grouping and analysis provides insight into the “why” behind ever error or performance problem. Instead of focusing on error rates, Loupe determines what unique errors are happening and calls your attention to important problems even if they just affect a few people.
Loupe is fully aware of application versions and can help your team determine if your runtime quality is improving or dropping and whether or not you’re ready to ship your next version.
