The Errors Dashboard is meant to be a dashboard that will give you more insights to errors that are occurring in your applications. Here you will start getting more contextual information about your exceptions, begin correlating exceptions with other problems, and even monitor error rates in your production applications to detect error spikes.
If you have not already added the Stackify Errors and Logs API or a Stackify appender to your logging framework ( ex: Log4net, NLog, Elmah, Log4J or Logback) click here to get started sending your logs and errors to Stackify to take advantage of the features below.
From the Error Dashboard, you can get an overview of all the exceptions of your applications across different environments. You can see an overall summary of your exceptions or you can change to a detailed view to see the log statements for the errors.
The Summaries Tab will give you an overview of the types of errors you are seeing. Stackify de-duplicates errors, so you see individual error instances with a count of occurrences, rather than all errors listed individually. This kind of view lets you see make sense of error history more effectively than a log-like view of errors.
View Errors by Type
- Active: Errors that are current that have not regressed or been resolved
- Resolved: Errors that have been marked as “Resolved” (see Error Details)
- Regressed: A “Resolved” error that has reoccurred
- New: Any error that has appeared for the first time in the time range searched.
- Ignored: Errors that the user has chosen not to display.
Applying Filters and Fields
Apply fields and filters to narrow down what errors you are searching for. This can be helpful when trying to investigate a certain error for a specific application in a specific environment. By using fields and filters to remove irrelevant errors, finding useful information becomes easier. You can see more information on this capability in the Filter and Fieldsdocument.
Searching for Errors
The Error Dashboard is broken up in to two sections: Apps and Errors. In the Apps section, you will find a link to the App dashboard for each app, as well as error rates for each app broken down by environment.
Viewing the App Dashboard
In the Errors section you will see list of all errors occurring across all your Apps and environments sorted by the most recent errors. You can change the sorting by clicking on each column heading.
