Because monitoring and observability are better together
Wildly efficient monitoring meets powerful observability that any developer or SRE can use.
Easy, accessible observability for your team
It shouldn’t take hours to resolve incidents or investigate performance issues. That’s the way things used to be.
Lightstep automatically detects changes to your application, infrastructure, and user experience — and highlights the specific causes.
Wildly efficient monitoring
Our groundbreaking time series database was built by the team that launched Google’s planet-scale metrics and tracing tech, Monarch and Dapper. It’s one of the reasons we’re able to surface system-wide insights in seconds. And deliver infrastructure and application metrics at half the cost of other providers.
How Lightstep works
Reduce MTTR by more than 90%
“I've been obsessed with Lightstep. It's been a fun product to use, not just a helpful one. I've never seen anything that you could drill in and find the root cause of a problem so quickly and so visually. That just absolutely blew my mind.”
Save $1,000,000s in annual firefighting and debugging costs
"With Lightstep, it takes us three minutes to know which service is affected, where before required grepping for an hour. This is a 20x reduction in identifying the root cause of an integration test failure."
Scale to hundreds of millions of users
"Lightstep is the future of monitoring and was instrumental in our move to microservices."
"Lightstep has transformed how we diagnose latency and performance issues."
"Lightstep shows us exactly where things are slow, what changes we need to make to realize a quick ROI, and specifically how our customers are experiencing our platform."
"Rather than having to comb through all the dependencies, Lightstep pages me and I can see specifically where the issue lies –– down to the specific MySQL query!"
"The Reliability team can, without access to code, pinpoint what deployment caused degradation, and escalate to the correct team."
“Lightstep automatically shows us what we need to see, and it’s by far the best way to understand dependencies.”
A better way to manage change
Whether intentional or otherwise, the only constant in complex systems is change. Lightstep makes it easier to deliver on the changes you want and mitigate the ones you don’t. This means increased CI/CD visibility, more effective SLO management, and higher velocity — and less time spent responding to incidents and customer issues.
