What are the challenges with event log monitoring?

Managing massive log volumes

In modern IT environments, teams have to monitor logs from numerous devices, servers, and applications. Most event log monitoring software offers little help in handling this complexity.

Expediting search and analysis

While the windows event log monitoring software can be useful in some cases, organizations lack powerful tools that can unify log monitoring and analysis across their distributed environment.

Finding better visualization tools

Most teams lack event log monitoring tools that can help them visualize their data. As a result, they have to rely on open-source visualization tools, which often pose several configuration challenges.
