Traditional log viewers require teams to set up their own servers. Managing this infrastructure in an environment where logs multiply at incredible rates can be highly resource-intensive
In a distributed environment, teams can struggle to identify the correct server for troubleshooting and might have to log into multiple servers to follow a trail. Log file readers do little to resolve this complexity.
Most log viewer tools offer limited features for data visualization, sharing, and reporting of data. This makes it tough for teams to collaborate and find patterns hidden in log data.
SolarWinds? Loggly? offers cloud-based log management that helps you gather logs from different apps, endpoints, infrastructure, and clouds in one place with a quick setup. This simplifies troubleshooting across your application and distributed infrastructure.
In addition to providing the immediate benefits of cloud-based centralized management in terms of scalability, ease of provisioning, and costs, Loggly also offers a highly interactive, responsive, and smart interface. By offering better usability, Loggly makes the daily grind of your DevOps teams less taxing than ever before. Furthermore, moving logs to Loggly doesn’t require any proprietary agents; your teams can accomplish this using syslog or any other log source of their choice.
Loggly is built for modern workloads, which means it takes no time for you to extract relevant information from massive volumes of log data spread across your distributed stack. Whether it’s about viewing real-time events or browsing through past data, Loggly provides an immediate response to your search queries. In fact, you don’t have to learn a proprietary query language for these searches; you can use regular expressions or search by individual fields, booleans, range, and more.
Loggly’s Dynamic Field Explorer is another interactive feature which structures all your log information into different categories, automatically. This allows you to click and browse through the logs, detect anomalies, and resolve issues faster.
Loggly makes it possible to unify log data from all your sources and convert this data into graphical charts. These charts simplify application and infrastructure monitoring by allowing you to view key trends over a period with the timeshift function.
Furthermore, Loggly’s anomaly chart helps you resolve issues proactively, by letting you detect potentially problematic events in advance. Many of these trends can otherwise go unnoticed as traditional count-based threshold alerts may not trigger in these cases. You can incorporate these charts with interactive and shareable dashboards. The dashboards provide a command-center view to your team, helping them take stock of events and activities across your entire stack.
