Loggly Overview

Welcome! Start here if you’re new to Loggly.

What is Loggly?

Loggly is a SaaS solution for log data management. With Loggly’s log management software, you’re able to bring logs from the depths of your entire infrastructure to one place where you can track activity and analyze trends. Best of all, because Loggly is a managed service, you don’t need any additional hardware or software to start using Loggly and we scale dynamically with your operation.

What kinds of data do you take?

We’ll take any kind of text-based log data.  If your systems & applications can write it, we can take it.

How do I get data to you?

Write your logs in real-time over either syslog or HTTP.  Most systems have an agent already installed that can forward logs.  There are a number of ways to configure log forwarding and we’ll walk you through the best method depending on your infrastructure configuration.

Who is Loggly for?

Technical operations, development, customer service, & product management teams commonly use Loggly.  Anyone who can gain insight from log data will want to use Loggly.  Our top uses are troubleshooting server & application issues, transaction correlation, deployment monitoring, application analytics, and alerting.

How secure is my data?

There are a few ways to send data securely – either over syslog TLS or HTTPS. We store your data in data centers that are ISO & SOC2 certified and we practice top industry standard security measures.   When you retrieve your data, all interactions are within secure sessions encrypted with Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) certificates.

What if I need to access to my logs that are outside of my retention period?

Our Pro level account offers archiving to Amazon Web Services S3 buckets for long term storage of your logs. The S3 bucket is a separate product maintained through AWS. We cannot help create or maintain accounts with AWS.

Thanks for the feedback! We'll use it to improve our support documentation.
