Graylog

If you already have a basic understanding of Elasticsearch and/or MongoDB, Graylog will be a great fit when it comes to log aggregation. It will be a decent option even if you don't have any experience but have the time and willingness to roll up your sleeves that learning those tools will require. Graylog supports plugins to extend functionality for things like SNMP traps, telemetry collection, and solar flares. As is the case with most software with plugins, if the core functionality for which you are looking (i.e. not logging) is based on a plugin, Graylog probably isn't for you. The majority of the plugins in the marketplace are developed by third-parties looking to solve their specific use case so bug fixes and new features are not a given.

  • Pricing for Enterprise is a bit unrealistic.
  • Archiving should be a standard feature in the community edition.

Graylog 5.0
Based on 3 answers
They have good online documentation. I haven't had to use their support much, which is a good thing I would assume since most everything they do is the standard way to do it. When I have used their support is was the online documentation; it seems to be well supported by Graylog and the community. Every issue I had, I was able to resolve using their documentation or the forums with questions on their website.

Graylog provides some great functionality for free. There are some more premium products that would handle more logs and would be a little easier to configure

Return on Investment

Check Point Quantum Smart-1

  • Hardware is very solid so time for maintenance is extremely limited.
  • Patching is limited due to the strength of the code releases also time for maintenance is extremely limited
  • Annually reoccurring costs for licenses can be expensive

  • We do not purchase support, so the only operational cost is that of the time it takes to maintain it.
  • All the components of Graylog that we use are free and open source, so there was no capital expense other than that of servers (repurposed from another recently-decommissioned project).
  • If there is a software crash that doesn't recover gracefully, it's usually something obscure that will take a while to diagnose and fix. Unless you build out a distributed and more resilient system with no single points of failure, that may have an impact on the organization or industry requirements for compliance.
