LogDNA
Anytime we need to make any kind of log on any platform that we use, LogDNA is well suited. It is primarily used for logging errors on our server but also used for checking issues within our iOS apps when we need to identify a critical issue that is occurring. The search feature is very very good!

Nagios Log Server facilitates the ability to search all entries of logs in a quick and easy way. Beyond that, it has allowed us to configure alerts for notification when there are potential threats (may they be security threats or only application-side problems), and to filter the data for audits and compliance.

Pros
LogDNA
  • The UI is simple to use and hasn't ever been confusing for anyone to use on our team.
  • Backups are great since we do occasionally need to access logs from the past and it has helped us solve some problems.
  • Searching/filtering is great and I've always been able to get exactly what I need.

Support Rating
LogDNA
It is very very good. They are responsive and very helpful. They also take the time to walk you through the issues you are having. But honestly, it is so straightforward that you rarely need to get support from their team. They are very helpful when you do need their support though.

Nagios support is decent. Nothing bad to say about them, but nothing extraordinary too. We mostly asked them questions instead of actively asking them to change or fix things for us. The response time is OK, commonly you can get a response in the same day. You can also call, but they are available only during US office hours.

LogDNA was already setup when I started and it is offered through Heroku so that's why it was chosen. It's also cheaper I believe. Compared to Logentries, it does the same thing.

Windows Event Log doesn't have 10% of the capabilities of Nagios Log Server. No real-time alerts, no scheduling, no external plugins or APIs. Nothing. The only advantage is that it is a native Windows application.

Return on Investment
LogDNA
  • It has helped a lot when trying to debug issues with customers or internal employees. It's a positive overall because it has saved us a lot of time debugging issues.

  • We could react in way less time to a lot of potential outages since we started using it.
