How Lightrun Works

Securely inject logs, metrics and traces in real time while the process is running. Debug monoliths, microservices, K8s, CI, serverless and more from your IDE.

Choose your IDE

  • VSCode
  • JetBrains

Choose Where you need more visibility: your code, legacy code, 3rd party code – you name it, we instrument it.

Choose What you want to know: Lightrun comes pre-packed with powerful, familiar tools like Logs, Metrics and Snapshots (virtual breakpoints).

Dynamically Instrument everything in real-time, without stopping the live application or changing your code: one click in the IDE and your live app is instrumented in a read-only, secure fashion.

Observe the information immediately: see it right in the IDE or in one of our 30+ observability integrations.

The World’s Most Cutting Edge Companies Use Lightrun

Taboola

“Lightrun was a real life changer for us”

Learn how Taboola slashed MTTR and saved over 260 debugging hours a month with Lightrun.

Lee Ditiankin
IBM

“Lightrun’s platform resulted in a 70% reduction in MTTR (Mean Time To Resolve) for my teams, as well as increased productivity due to easier access to highly granular runtime data. In addition, the experience of production troubleshooting has changed dramatically – my engineers do not fear it anymore; it’s just another workday – and troubleshooting sessions that used to span days now take mere minutes.”

Lee Ditiangkin Product Manager at IBM

“Leveraging Lightrun, our teams unraveled complex incidents that were challenging to solve and replicate locally using conventional debugging solutions. Lightrun enables us to quickly introduce dynamic logs and snapshots surrounding the incident area and by that reducing MTTR from hours to minutes”

Jacob Eckel VP, R&D, Gong

“Lightrun has been a game-changer for us. With Lightrun we shortened our development process significantly by skipping iterative deployment cycles when adding logs and metrics. A day’s work turned into just one hour. Lightrun provided us with new observability into our production environment that was not accessible to us beforehand. Lightrun is a key component in our developer toolset here at Taboola and one of our development best practices.””

Rami Stern R&D Infrastructure Team Leader at Taboola

“Drata’s main focus is to ensure we’re delivering value for our customers and addressing their most urgent needs; we embrace that approach across the entire organization. Leveraging Lightrun to significantly streamline logging has allowed us to remediate faster without shifting our focus away from critical business initiatives.”

Dave Knell VP Software Engineering at Drata

“By using Lightrun, our development team was able to figure out an extremely complex incident that was hard to parse and reproduce locally and with the standard debugging solutions. The team was able to use Lightrun to quickly add logs and snapshots around the area of the incident, reproduce and fix it”

Yan Dyshkalps Director of Technology Research, Architecture and Infrastructure, InsideTracker

“Using Lightrun to debug an actual issue in production enabled us to react instantly. We were able to add the right logs and identify the root-cause in a real-time session, instead of waiting for redeployments.”

Tom Shapira Director of Software Engineering at WhiteSource
Fortune 10 company

“Lightrun is a strategic tool in our SRE & incident mgmt. playbook, and increases the organization’s capacity to respond to customer-facing applicative issues quickly. Lightrun empowers our developers with safe, real-time troubleshooting capabilities and has enabled them to debug mission-critical, complex applicative issues 50-60% faster.“

Director of Engineering F10 Company, >10K Developers

What the industry is saying about us

Having a nonintrusive way to add logs and metrics while the service is running in production gives engineers faster access and insight to production issues, and helps enhance their diagnosis and root cause analysis capabilities.

Hassan Ennaciri, Senior Director, Gartner

Lightrun sets itself apart in the effort to bring observability into a routine and day to day task for developers is by bringing capabilities into their tools and day to day workflow.

Liam Rogers, Research Analyst, 451 Research

Unlike the traditional APM go to market, Lightrun focuses on real time fixes by developers. Rather than collecting all system logs, or a subset of them, Lightrun is designed to improve the logs in flight.

James Governor, Co-founder, RedMonk

Seeing this type of information [logs and metrics] from production in your IDE is the final frontier of shifting left

Kief Morris, Principal Cloud Technologist, Thoughtworks
