Understand complex systems with one line of code


Every dependency. Every deploy. Every regression. See it all with the world’s most insightful tracing.

Instrumentation shouldn't be a four-letter word


We co-founded open standards like OpenTelemetry and OpenTracing to give developers access to portable, vendor-neutral telemetry data. Now you can get started in less time than it takes to microwave a burrito.

“Logging solutions can provide information about who, what, and where things happened, but Lightstep answers why things happened.”

Instant root cause analysis


Yes, you read that right. Lightstep analyzes 100% of your unsampled event data in seconds, and automatically surfaces the likely root cause — no matter how rare, specific, or deep in the stack.


Rapid Root Cause Analysis

Full-context observability at any scale


Lightstep highlights the critical path across any number of dependencies, whether you have five services or five hundred. Unlike conventional monitoring, there are no charges based on data volume, which means unlimited cardinality, unlimited visibility, and unlimited scale.


Product overview

Automatically detect and investigate changes


Know exactly what happens after anyone on your team ships code. Easily compare before and after any deploy, and get immediate context into what’s different, what’s broken, and what specific metrics, logs, and traces are relevant to your investigation.
