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.

Splunk Cloud

I find that Splunk Cloud is well suited for tracking user logins, Server Reboots, failed login attempts, account lockouts, and sorting these items by host or user. We often trace failed user logins to someone having cached credentials on an endpoint which can result in locked accounts that drive the Help Desk ticket volume up unnecessarily.

Splunk Cloud

  • With Splunk Cloud you get the advantage of moving from POC to Production in a matter of days rather than in months allowing the Business to gain a lot.

Cons

Nagios Log Server

  • A bit hard to install and configure.
  • High price.
Gabriel Krahn | TrustRadius Reviewer

Splunk Cloud

  • The query language is well-documented but has a bit of a learning curve.
  • I wish copy/pasting JSON from the logs were easier without going to the completely raw (condensed) form.

Overall, it is very usable. I would like if recent searches were saved for longer because I always have to refer to my notes when I'm looking for something specific and it's been a few weeks. But that's a small issue, and the actual search and browsing interface is easy to use and powerful.

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.

There is plenty of community-driven support, which is always a very good thing to have. Getting support from your peers worldwide means answers can be very quick, even quicker than official support channels.

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.

Splunk Cloud

All the products in this category do log aggregation very well, however the winning factor was that we have experience with Splunk already and this has proved invaluable as Splunk has a steep learning curve. Especially the Splunk administration part of the tool as that is a very complex area if you wish to get into it.

Return on Investment

Nagios Log Server

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

Splunk Cloud

  • Reduced the amount of time needed from internal security resources (freed up at least 3 FTEs).
  • Reduced the cost per daily GB ingests of our SIEM by 33%.
  • Allowed us to migrate to a lower cost SOC model.
