    I've recently found Sentry, which has a self-hosted option. I've not used it in production, though, so I can't speak for how good it is.

    Upgrading is a little bit tricky: in my (limited) experience the upgrading procedure for the self-hosted version sometimes fails and requires to take the application offline to perform the upgrade.

    I've been running it for almost a year, using docker-compose. It seems rather unstable for me. Every week or so, Sentry will just stop handling incoming events, and the request queues just keep growing. And if you try to upload symbols in this state, it will pause forever when trying to process them. So I've got a script[0] I can run that will unbreak it, but I don't fully understand what it actually does (I cobbled that script together based on a GitHub issue[1] that described the same problem). The Sentry architecture is complicated and not trivial to debug.

    When it works, it's pretty good. I'm using it with sentry-native on the application side, which uses Crashpad to capture stack traces of native binaries (x86/ARM, Windows/Mac/Linux, whatever). It often doesn't deduplicate events properly, and the stack trace qualities vary dramatically by platform. Sometimes the stack traces it provides are total nonsense, but it does allow downloading the minidump files, so I can dig at them in Visual Studio and see what's really going on. I have discovered and solved many real bugs using it, so I've put up with the frustrating stability issues.

    The is a self-hosted version of the server, I'm not entirely sure, but I think that would probably be free, to some extent anyway

    Sentry is very easy to self-host[1] on a single node with Docker Compose. They make it a little tricky to self-host with multiple nodes, but I assume their SaaS product can scale indefinitely.

    I can't think of anything easier for error-tracking than Sentry, given its ability to automatically intercept exceptions in languages like Python. Sentry also has some automatic handling for stack traces, recording the state of Redis clusters and similar bits of infra, and redacting information that appears to be sensitive (e.g. such as database passwords).

    It does, but it’s also pretty well packaged up these days in a Docker compose file:
