Viewing Errors

Open the Error Reporting page in the Cloud Platform Console. A list of the most frequently occurring errors is displayed.

Errors overview

Errors are grouped and de-duplicated by analysing their stack traces. Our system knows about the common frameworks used for your language and groups errors accordingly. Each error entry provides a summary that helps you determine when the application started to produce the error, how often it occurred, and how recently it occurred.

You can filter, sort and see additional details about errors, as well as restrict the errors that appear in the list to a specific time range.

Error Reporting samples up to 1000 errors per hour. When this limit is reached, the displayed counts are probabilistically extrapolated. If too many events are received for the whole day, Error Reporting can sample to 100 errors per hour and continue to extrapolate the counts.

Tip: We recommend that you treat this table like an email inbox. Keep it clean by fixing underlying errors, and/or muting those errors that are expected and recurring.

Information

The list contains the following information:

Column Description
Occurrences The number of times this error has occurred in the selected time range.
Users The number of users affected by this error in the selected time range. The column is hidden if no user information is available.
Error Provides the error information, as extracted from the error's stack trace. The error message and its code location are displayed. If your code is available in Cloud Source Repositories, clicking the code location brings you to your source.
Seen in Lists the service and version in which the error is occurring.
First seen The time at which this error first appeared. Sorting on this column is useful for finding the errors which have most recently started occurring.
Last seen The time at which this error last occurred. Sorting on this column is useful for seeing which errors are still occurring; you can also reverse sort to see which have stopped.
Status The HTTP status code returned with this error.

Filtering

You can use the Filter errors text field to filter the list of displayed errors. This field supports text matching on the error message and exception stack, as well as filtering by the following attributes:

  • request URL
  • report location (i.e. location where the error was logged)
  • HTTP method
  • HTTP status code
