What are the challenges with system log analysis?

Reliable management of system logs

IT teams manage a logging setup that can reliably handle logs from several on-premises and cloud-based servers and other networking infrastructure. Managing logs in this continuously expanding environment is a complex exercise.

Deriving insights from an endless event stream

As logs can vary in their format, system log analysis and event correlation can get challenging. It’s also a challenge to search through a large volume of logs as traditional system log analyzers get sluggish under increased workloads.

Troubleshooting with the use of multiple tools

As teams lack advanced tools for system log analysis, they configure and use open-source solutions for parsing, searching, and visualization of logs. Shuffling between multiple tools is a hassle and can impede troubleshooting.
