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 Light

Splunk light is awesome for anyone wanting to do proactive monitoring. It is also really well suited for insights into data with dashboards. Splunk light might not be a great choice if you do not want to manage the infrastructure on your own.

Splunk Light

  • Splunk Light doesn't include the ability to create data models or tables without paying for a large upgrade. This is a rather basic feature, I wish it had been included.
  • High Availability is another basic feature that is excluded, greatly limiting Splunk Light's usefulness.

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.

Splunk Light

Splunk Light 6.0
Based on 1 answer
Splunk Light support is limited to free Community Support and access to basic supports. The Base Support Program only covers online case submission and status. There is no 24/7 direct or phone access to advance global support team. Moreover, It does not provide any Service Level Agreement (SLA) on response and resolution time. However, for a non-mission critical or time-sensitive usage which requires high availability service the Base Support is already sufficient.

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 Light

Splunk Light was easy to install, has great support from the vendor, and great community support. Other logging solutions did not have these benefits when we were looking to buy Splunk. They were cheaper, but Splunk seemed to be the gold standard in log repository and indexing. Splunk Light was a perfect fit for what we needed.

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 Light

  • The intrusion detection with the real-time alert has been a huge positive impact.
  • Log search has helped us in tracking certain internal issues.
  • Dashboards for quick glance to show the upper management has saved us time on explaining where more protection is needed.
