“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.”
Dave Lucia, VP of Engineering

Root cause complex incidents in three steps

Lightstep already highlights the error rates, latency, and other service level indicators (SLIs) that experience the greatest change. Now you can immediately see the specific causes.

Deployment Markers

Application monitoring

Give your team end-to-end visibility across your stack — any app, any service, any cloud. Move seamlessly from a high-level view of dependencies to specific services or signals contributing to issues in production.

Resolve performance regressions immediately

Infrastructure and application metrics

Years ago, we built Google’s planet-scale metrics and tracing systems (Monarch and Dapper).

We launched Lightstep’s metrics to automatically surface the insights teams need to resolve issues and improve performance — without scrolling through dozens of dashboards.

Added bonus: high-cardinality metrics and low telemetry costs.

Customer and user monitoring

Lightstep highlights where latency, error rates, or other service level indicators (SLIs) have experienced the greatest change — no matter how unlikely or rare.

You can easily monitor and alert on VIP customers, outliers, and any organization that is experiencing or causing suboptimal system performance.
