Traditional log management systems require complex integrations to aggregate logs in a modern distributed IT environment in which logs are generated by multiple devices, servers, and applications.
Lack of automation makes sifting through huge data volumes tedious and time-consuming. Manual intervention increases the probability of erroneous analysis.
Legacy log management tools lack advanced features like integrated unified dashboards and charts to visualize logs. Teams rely on various open-source tools for visualization and analytics. Integrating and switching between multiple tools is a hassle.
SolarWinds® Loggly® is a cloud-based log management and analytics service that is easy to set up without any complex configuration requirements. Loggly is designed to seamlessly aggregate structured and unstructured logs in a centralized repository. With all your logs in one place, it offers better visibility across your distributed environment and allows you to manage all logs from a single screen.
Unlike other cloud log management services, Loggly supports an agentless architecture that allows you to effortlessly send logs to Loggly without installing an agent. Also, cloud log management facilitates instant scalability needs of your business. Loggly helps you to automatically archive older data logs to AWS S3 buckets for compliance purposes.
The Loggly cloud log management service accelerates search and analysis to help you quickly identify errors and determine root causes for faster troubleshooting. Loggly is built to automatically parse incoming logs into multiple field-value pairs to enhance data analysis.
It offers a near-instant troubleshooting experience via the dynamic field explorer that lets you simply click and browse through a structured summary of parsed logs. The live tail feature can help you keep a track of your logs and events in real time, while surround search is highly effective in monitoring your distributed stack. It allows you to view the surrounding occurrences that took place just before or after critical event.
Loggly offers an array of integrated chart types to help you easily visualize log search results. You can use these charts to quickly detect underlying data patterns or anomalies for faster troubleshooting. Loggly allows you to group multiple charts and create a personalized dashboard to monitor your diverse IT environment. It provides various pre-configured standardized dashboards for technologies including Windows, Java, PHP, Heroku, PHP, NGINX, Linux, Docker, and more to help you instantly monitor key performance and usage metrics.
The cloud log management service facilitates team collaboration by allowing you to share unified dashboards across your team and even supports integration with tools like GitHub, JIRA, and PagerDuty to promote higher efficiency and productivity.
