Bringing Serverless Observability To The Masses

I feel like I have been waiting forever to write this blog post! It finally happened, after changing our pricing model we are proud to announce that Dashbird has a free tier. That’s right, you can start using our serverless monitoring tools, right now, for free and without having to add a credit card to your account.

Free at last. Free at last.

So what do you get with your free Dashbird account? Well, you get most of the features available to the premium packages with the exception of the Full-text search functionality and the data transfer from AWS is limited to one GB/month.

This change is part of a larger shift in Dashbird’s product roadmap and strategy. Dashbird began as a tool to monitor Lambda functions but it quickly evolved past this and we are currently working on integrating AWS event sources to provide full visibility into serverless architecture. Because of this, we will remove the function count restriction and will price our service only based on data ingestion. You can check out the updated pricing structure here.

It’s worth mentioning that Dashbird has introduced a lot of improvements in the last couple of weeks and will continue you to do so at an even quicker pace in the future. Read about our product update for July here.

No matter if you’re part of a large corporation or a hobbyist playing around with serverless – we have seen that Dashbird brings a lot of value in terms of operational stability, quicker development cycles and optimal AWS spend. Dashbird only takes around 2 minutes to set up and it doesn’t require any code changes.

Get started right now!

Made by developers for developers

Dashbird was born out of our own need for an enhanced serverless debugging and monitoring tool, and we take pride in being developers.

What our customers say

Dashbird gives us a simple and easy to use tool to have peace of mind and know that all of our Serverless functions are running correctly. We are instantly aware now if there’s a problem. We love the fact that we have enough information in the Slack notification itself to take appropriate action immediately and know exactly where the issue occurred.

Thanks to Dashbird the time to discover the occurrence of an issue reduced from 2-4 hours to a matter of seconds or minutes. It also means that hundreds of dollars are saved every month.

Great onboarding: it takes just a couple of minutes to connect an AWS account to an organization in Dashbird. The UI is clean and gives a good overview of what is happening with the Lambdas and API Gateways in the account.

I mean, it is just extremely time-saving. It’s so efficient! I don’t think it’s an exaggeration or dramatic to say that Dashbird has been a lifesaver for us.

Dashbird provides an easier interface to monitor and debug problems with our Lambdas. Relevant logs are simple to find and view. Dashbird’s support has been good, and they take product suggestions with grace.

Great UI. Easy to navigate through CloudWatch logs. Simple setup.

Dashbird helped us refine the size of our Lambdas, resulting in significantly reduced costs. We have Dashbird alert us in seconds via email when any of our functions behaves abnormally. Their app immediately makes the cause and severity of errors obvious.
