What are the common challenges with HAProxy logging?

Log volumes can become unmanageable

In a production environment, log volumes can spiral out of control. Ensuring all logs are captured, analyzed, and stored for compliance purposes can be a big challenge for teams.

HAProxy log analysis is not simple

It is not easy to monitor HAProxy logs in real time, as teams have to manually parse their logs and find relevant information for troubleshooting. The is a time-consuming process.

Troubleshooting requires complex integrations

Integrating multiple tools for alerts, charts, and collaboration may become problematic. Shuffling between numerous software products impedes troubleshooting and increases the time to resolve issues.

Aggregate all your logs with a cloud-based service

SolarWinds® Loggly® offers cloud-based log aggregation and analytics that help organizations solve their logging challenges. In addition to HAProxy logs, Loggly accepts a wide range of logs from different servers, operating systems, applications, and languages.

With all your logs in one place, it is easier to correlate different logs and get to the root cause of application and infrastructure issues faster. Unlike other logging tools, Loggly has an agentless architecture. This makes it easier to send logs to Loggly using simple scripts over syslog or using log sources such as rsyslog, Fluentd, Docker, and more. Syslog is the most preferred method for sending HAproxy logs to Loggly.

Simplify log search and analysis with Loggly

Unlike other methods where configuration of a HAProxy log parser is needed to analyze logs, Loggly offers automated analysis. This allows it to offer near-instant search results for your queries.

As Loggly is built for simplicity and scale, it allows you to run full-text searches, or searches over a particular range and field using booleans without requiring any proprietary query language. It also helps you gain useful insight into the data in a seamless manner with the dynamic field explorer feature, which offers a structured summary of the parsed logs. With this explorer, it is possible to click and browse through the logs without using multiple commands. You can also monitor your logs in real time using the live tail feature.

Leverage multiple integrations for HAProxy log analysis

Loggly makes it easier to find anomalies and hidden patterns in your HAProxy server logs with its integrated charts and dashboard. You can visualize search results using various types of charts which can be grouped together to form a dashboard.

You can share it with your team or download it in the form of PNG image for reporting. Further, Loggly integrates with all popular notification services for alerts. For your application logs, you can leverage the Loggly GitHub integration, which links logs to the particular line of code in the SCM. Loggly also integrates with Jira, making it possible to raise tickets without leaving the Loggly window. All these integrations allow your team to collaborate and resolve issues smoothly.
