Nagios Log Server

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.

It's really good to keep logs of your apps and is fairly easy to configure if you have your own web server. Default integration with Heroku is very useful if you are using Heroku. Probably less useful if using AWS, Azure, or Google Cloud. Would be good if there's any default integration with those major cloud providers.

Support Rating

Nagios Log Server

Nagios Log Server 9.0
Based on 1 answer
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.

Alternatives Considered

Nagios Log Server

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.

Return on Investment

Nagios Log Server

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

SolarWinds Papertrail

  • SolarWinds Papertrail has become my log service, for my personal app servers. I use the free plan and if one day I need more, there are many plan options that I'm sure will fill my needs.
