What are the challenges with analyzing system logs?

Log management can be a hassle

In IT environments with numerous servers and endpoints, log volumes can spiral out of control as traditional tools lack scalability. This makes it difficult for administrators to troubleshoot issues.

It’s difficult to gain actionable intelligence

Traditional syslog analyzers can get sluggish in modern environments where there’s a need to analyze logs in real time. Due to this, teams can struggle to resolve issues and keep systems in good health.

Getting a quick overview isn’t simple

As teams monitor an endless stream of logs, getting a quick overview of the environment becomes a challenge. Lack of visualization and inefficient workflows further slow down troubleshooting.
