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.

SolarWinds Papertrail is very well suited for use in a test environment due to how fast and easy it is to set up, and it just works. I always tell colleagues to use this when they're running a scenario, or trying to troubleshoot an issue as it really helps in getting it done quickly.

    It's extremely easy to use. I and new colleagues have never had any issues configuring this tool or setting it up, it works almost out of the box with very simple instructions to follow to configure it to our own environment. I would highly recommend it on that ability alone.

    Support Rating

    Nagios Enterprises

    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.

    I honestly have never had the need to use the support team, as we have not run into any issues so far. If we did however, judging from how the tool itself works, I don't doubt that the team would provide excellent support for any issues that we may possibly run into.

    Alternatives Considered

    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.

    We have used other services such as Coralogix before but love SolarWinds Papertrail for its ease of use and not-too-bloated features. This also makes our engineers and other staff use it more often.
