In modern IT environments, teams use multiple endpoints, servers, and applications, and these each produce a large volume of log data. Managing and monitoring these logs is challenging without a central datastore or interface.
To ensure all mission-critical systems and applications remain up and perform as expected, IT teams struggle to resolve issues in real time across complex environments. Tracking numerous alerts and getting to the root cause of issues isn’t simple.
Teams use multiple tools for visualization, alerts, and collaboration. It isn’t easy to ensure all tools work in tandem, and it can take a lot of time and effort to configure these tools.
SolarWinds® Loggly® streamlines log management and monitoring with a quick setup requiring minimal configuration for log ingestion, search, analytics, and visualization. As a cloud-based service, Loggly saves you time and effort in setting up and managing a logging server. You can start logging using simple scripts, and there’s no software to install.
Loggly accepts all kinds of text-based logs. With your data all in one place, you can use the online log reader to correlate events, find the root cause of issues, and resolve bottlenecks faster. Loggly can also automatically archive your logs to Amazon S3 buckets for long-term retention or compliance purposes.
Loggly adds agility and simplicity to your operations. It helps you search a large volume of logs across your distributed stack and get near-instant results for your queries. It automatically parses your logs into various fields to help you quickly extract specific information from the logs.
For automated parsing, you can use the derived fields feature to define custom parsing rules for the log types Loggly doesn’t automatically parse. To monitor and analyze your parsed logs, you can use the Dynamic Field Explorer™, which offers a highly intuitive guided search experience (no complex, manual queries). Finally, surround search helps you track events and resolve issues proactively by automatically showing you all the logs leading up to and immediately following a search of interest.
With Loggly, you don’t need to spend hours configuring multiple tools for log monitoring and analytics. As an advanced log reader, Loggly offers several features and integrations with DevOps tools to prevent you from shuffling between multiple tools. You can use different types of charts and graphs to visualize your search results and set up a custom dashboard to get a bird’s-eye view of your environment.
Loggly also offers several preconfigured dashboards to help you track important metrics, and you can share these dashboards with your team. Furthermore, Loggly integrates with tools like Slack, Microsoft Teams, JIRA, GitHub, and more, improving your team’s collaboration workflow to help you resolve issues efficiently.
