What are the common challenges with JavaScript logging?

Log management in a distributed environment

In distributed environments, teams can struggle to manage and monitor logs from different applications and frameworks. Most JavaScript error logging services offer limited help in handling this complexity.

Increased time and effort in search and analysis

Traditional tools for JavaScript logging are not equipped to handle modern workloads and can get slow when one has to search through older log files. This makes finding the root cause of issues difficult.

Lengthy configuration for integrating multiple tools

Teams have to integrate multiple open-source tools for log aggregation, search, visualization, and alerts. Configuring and ensuring all these tools work in tandem is a challenging task.
