Introduction to Sentry and Vercel

Sentry is a powerful error tracking and monitoring tool that helps developers identify and fix issues in their applications. With Sentry, you can quickly detect, diagnose, and resolve errors before they affect your users.

Vercel is a platform for deploying, scaling, and monitoring web applications. It provides a seamless developer experience and offers real-time analytics to monitor the performance of your application.

Integrating Sentry with Vercel allows you to track errors and monitor the performance of your full stack system efficiently.

Setting up Sentry with Vercel

To set up Sentry with Vercel, follow these steps:

  1. Create a Sentry account: If you don't have a Sentry account, create one here.

  2. Create a new project in Sentry: Navigate to your Sentry dashboard, click on "Projects," and then click "Create Project." Choose the platform of your application and provide a name for your project.

  3. Install Sentry SDK in your application: Follow the instructions provided by Sentry to install the SDK for your chosen platform.

  4. Configure Sentry in your application: Add the necessary configuration to your application, such as the Sentry DSN (Data Source Name).

  5. Integrate Sentry with Vercel: Go to your Vercel dashboard, click on the "Integrations" tab, and search for "Sentry". Click "Connect" and follow the instructions to link your Sentry account with Vercel.

  6. Deploy your application on Vercel: Push your application to a Git repository, and connect it to Vercel by following the Vercel documentation.

Tracking Errors in Your Application

Once you have set up Sentry with Vercel, you can track errors in your application as follows:

  1. Capture exceptions in your code: Use the Sentry SDK to capture exceptions and report them to Sentry.

  2. View errors in the Sentry dashboard: Navigate to your Sentry dashboard and click on "Issues" to view the list of errors captured by Sentry.

  3. Resolve errors: Analyze the error details, such as stack traces, user information, and related issues, to diagnose and fix the problem. Mark the error as resolved when it has been fixed.

  4. Monitor error trends: Use Sentry's "Discover" feature to analyze error trends and identify problem areas in your application.

Monitoring Performance with Vercel Analytics

In addition to error tracking, Vercel provides real-time analytics to monitor the performance of your application. Here's how to use Vercel Analytics:

  1. Enable Vercel Analytics: Make sure you have enabled Vercel Analytics for your project by following the Vercel documentation.

  2. Analyze performance metrics: Go to your Vercel dashboard and click on the "Analytics" tab. Here, you can view various performance metrics, such as Core Web Vitals, page load time, and cache efficiency.

  3. Identify performance bottlenecks: Analyze the data provided by Vercel Analytics to identify performance bottlenecks and areas for improvement in your application.

  4. Optimize your application: Implement performance optimizations, such as reducing JavaScript payload, optimizing images, and improving server response times.

  5. Monitor your improvements: Continuously monitor your application's performance using Vercel Analytics to ensure a smooth user experience.


Sentry and Vercel are powerful tools that, when combined, can help you optimize your full stack system performance. By integrating Sentry with Vercel, you can efficiently track errors, monitor application performance, and identify areas for improvement. This will ultimately result in a better user experience and a more stable application.
