What are the challenges with log management and analytics?

Managing logs in a complex distributed environment

IT teams may struggle while managing multiple systems, servers, applications, and cloud. Keeping track of numerous logs and creating a reliable and scalable setup for the management of logs is a challenge.

Analyzing massive log volumes for troubleshooting

While logs hold crucial insights, variations in their format can make analysis difficult. Teams can struggle to ingest, parse, search, and filter these logs for seamless monitoring and analysis.

Configuring and shuffling between multiple tools

As teams lack dedicated tools for unified log analysis and monitoring, they rely on multiple open-source tools. Making these applications work alongside each other isn’t easy, as they pose configuration challenges.
