In modern distributed IT environments consisting of several user devices, servers, applications, and clouds, log volumes can grow quickly. Managing all these log files is a big challenge.
Logs can contain a great deal of superfluous information and at times, sifting through them to find relevant information for troubleshooting can take a long time.
Teams have to use multiple open-source tools for log aggregation, parsing, searching, visualization, and alerts. Configuring and shuffling between these tools is a hassle.
SolarWinds® Loggly® simplifies log management with a cloud-based logging service that can be set up quickly. Agentless architecture allows you to collect logs using simple scripts. You can use syslog, which is the most common way to forward your system and application logs to Loggly.
Loggly offers powerful search and analysis features that help you unify infrastructure and application monitoring, and reduce your time to troubleshoot issues. Unlike other application logging services, Loggly provides near-instant search results, even when searching through large volumes of logs.
It automatically parses incoming logs into multiple field-value pairs to enhance data analysis. You can find a structured summary of your logs in the Loggly dynamic field explorer. It allows you to extract useful information from your logs, without typing multiple commands. You can also use the live tail feature to monitor your logs in real time.
Loggly offers several advanced features and integrations to simplify log monitoring and analysis. There are various types of charts to visualize your search results. These charts help you detect any deviation from the normal pattern and troubleshoot issues faster. You can use several pre-configured dashboards to monitor important health and performance metrics in your distributed IT environment.
Sharing the dashboard with others helps to keep everyone on the same page. Loggly also integrates with popular notification services for alerts. You can also link your logs to the associated line of code in the SCM with the Loggly GitHub integration. With all these useful features, Loggly makes log monitoring and log analysis extremely convenient and efficient.
