Vercel Status Monitoring: A Comprehensive Guide

If you're looking for Vercel Analytics instead, you can check out — Getting started with Vercel Analytics.

Vercel, formerly known as Zeit, is a popular deployment and serverless platform that makes it easy for developers to build, deploy, and scale web applications. Vercel specializes in providing exceptional performance with its global CDN, easily adjustable caching, and an array of built-in development tools.

However, ensuring optimal app performance extends beyond deployment. It requires constant monitoring of your app's status on Vercel.

In this article, we will discuss the importance of monitoring your application statuses on Vercel, explore the built-in tools provided by Vercel, introduce third-party monitoring, and showcase MONN — our ultimate monitoring solution tailored for Vercel.

1. The Importance of Monitoring Your Vercel Statuses

Monitoring the status of your Vercel deployments is crucial to ensure consistent application performance and user experience. Rigorous status monitoring can support you in the following ways:

  • Detecting performance issues and possible bottlenecks
  • Identifying application errors and irregular traffic patterns
  • Ensuring maximum uptime and availability
  • Making informed decisions while optimizing the application

Aside: Understanding Key Vercel Metrics

To effectively monitor your Vercel app, you should focus on three key metrics:

  • Uptime: Measure of the uninterrupted system availability, expressed as a percentage.
  • Response time: Amount of time taken by the application to acknowledge and process user requests.
  • Error rates: Frequency of server issues, app crashes, or unresponsive services.

With the help of these metrics, you can address performance problems quickly and ensure that your application maintains high availability and excellent user experience.

2. Vercel's Built-in Monitoring Tools

Vercel provides various built-in tools to developers that enable them to monitor their application performance. Some of these tools are:

  • Vercel Dashboard: Gives an overview of various project-level metrics, including the number of deployments, build duration, and more.
  • Logs: Offers real-time logs of deployment builds and runtime logs, including access logs, errors, and serverless function execution logs.
  • Vercel CLI: The Vercel command-line interface provides options to monitor app performance and deployments directly from the terminal. While these built-in tools can provide essential insights for your application's performance, you might require advanced monitoring tools for more comprehensive analysis.

3. Advanced Vercel Monitoring: Third-Party Solutions

For a more in-depth understanding of your Vercel application status, you can opt for third-party monitoring tools. Some popular tools for advanced Vercel monitoring are:

  • New Relic: Offers comprehensive performance analytics with a focus on application performance management (APM).
  • Datadog: A SaaS-based monitoring solution that helps visualize and analyze logs, metrics, and more from your Vercel applications.
  • Sentry: An open-source error-tracking tool that helps developers find and fix issues more quickly.

As effective as these tools may be, managing multiple tools for applications hosted across different platforms can be challenging. A solution like MONN can help here.
