What makes event log management so challenging?

Log management in a distributed environment

It is not simple to manage event logs for numerous endpoints, applications, cloud, and servers in modern IT environments. Creating a robust setup to meet spikes in log volumes becomes a struggle.

Search and analysis with large data sets

Traditional log and event managers aren’t equipped to handle large log volumes. As a result, they take a long time to provide results for common search queries and can reduce operational efficiency.

Lack of advanced tools for monitoring

Most log and event management software lack advanced features for log monitoring, analysis, and visualization. As a result, teams have to rely on multiple tools for solving their event log management challenges.
