Over time, managing all your different logs becomes a big challenge. Lack of admin access to the web server can also make it difficult for developers to monitor their logs with the event viewer.
While C# error logging can help developers troubleshoot issues, they lack tools to quickly search through a large volume of logs. Developers can struggle to get to the root cause of the issue.
Developers often configure several complex open-source tools to analyze and monitor their logs. Managing all these tools is a hassle and can take developers away from their real work.
You can centrally manage your application logs by streaming them to a centralized log monitoring solution like SolarWinds® Loggly®. It allows you to monitor your logs remotely, even when you don’t have direct access to the host running your application. As a cloud-based service, Loggly doesn’t require lengthy configuration, helping you get started quickly. Further, you don’t have to worry about managing a logging server while easily meeting your future scalability needs. In addition to logging C# applications, Loggly allows you to aggregate text-based structured and unstructured logs. It helps you stay on top of your environment to monitor and resolve issues effortlessly.
Loggly offers several advanced features for troubleshooting and diagnostics of logs. It can easily search through a large volume of logs and provide quick results for your search queries. You don’t have to learn a proprietary query language as it accepts common search operators. Further, Loggly automatically parses your logs. You can inspect these logs using the Loggly Dynamic Field Explorer™, which provides a structured summary of your parsed logs using various fields. Finally, Loggly allows you to inspect the trail of events before or after a critical occurrence in a single click, as well as offering live tail capabilities.
Loggly saves time and effort in configuring multiple tools for log aggregation, searching, and visualization. It offers advanced charts to help you visualize your search results. With visualization, you can quickly spot deviations from the norm and drill down to resolve issues. Further, Loggly offers several pre-configured dashboards to help you get started quickly. With these dashboards, you can monitor various performance and usage related metrics connected to your environment. You can also integrate Loggly with tools like GitHub, JIRA, Slack, Microsoft Teams, and PagerDuty to enhance collaboration and resolve issues with minimal effort.
