Getting Started is Simple

Grab the Sentry Python SDK:

pip install --upgrade sentry-sdk

Configure your DSN:

import sentry_sdk


    # Set traces_sample_rate to 1.0 to capture 100%
    # of transactions for performance monitoring.
    # We recommend adjusting this value in production.

That’s it. Be sure to check out our documentation to ensure you have the latest instructions.

Python Performance Monitoring

Within minutes after installing Sentry, software teams are able to trace Python performance issues back to a poor performing API call as well as surface all related code errors. Engineering Managers and Developers now have a single tool to optimize the performance of their code and deliver fast customer experiences.

Python Error Monitoring with Complete Stack Traces

See local variables in the stack for prod errors, just like in your dev environment. Introspect more deeply into the runtime and jump into the frame to get additional data for any local variable. Filter and group Python exceptions intuitively to eliminate noise.

Fill In the Blanks About Python Errors

Expose the important events that led to each Python exception: SQL queries, debug logs, network requests, past errors. Improve debugging workflow with a full view of releases so you can mark errors as resolved and prioritize live issues.

”The time to resolve errors went from days to minutes.”

Debugging Any Python Exception

Aggregate errors by details like HTTP request, hostname, and app version to see what’s new, a priority, or a trend.

Assign custom tags to reproduce the error environment specific to your application, business, and users.

Answer the most important questions: In which app release did thePython bug occur? Was it the kraken?


Traditional logging provides you with a trail of events. Some of those events are errors, but many times they’re simply informational. Sentry is fundamentally different because we focus on exceptions, or in other words, we capture application crashes. We discuss in more detail here and on our blog.

Sentry supports every major language, framework, and library. You can browse each of them here.

You can get started for free. Pricing depends on the number of monthly events, transactions, and attachments that you send Sentry. For more details, visit our pricing page.

Sentry doesn’t impact a web site’s performance.

If you look at the configuration options for when you initialize Sentry in your code, you’ll see there’s nothing regarding minimizing its impact on your app’s performance. This is because our team of SDK engineers already developed Sentry with this in mind.

Sentry is a listener/handler for errors that asynchronously sends out the error/event to This is non-blocking. The error/event only goes out if this is an error.

Global handlers have almost no impact as well, as they are native APIs provided by the browsers.
