We use it to log network activity. It's often a requirement when audited to provide proof of network monitoring/activity and Loggly helps us meet those needs.
  • Logs Network activity to allow for auditing.
  • Proactively monitors to point out potential issues.
  • Integration with our GitHub application.
It's excellent for vizualizing and organizing data to help us understand underlying issues in our applications or servers. It will immediately notify us if a deployment leads to issues for our users.

SolarWinds Loggly is our standard logging solution for our entire cloud platform. If it is logged, it goes to SolarWinds Loggly.
  • Reliablity
  • Performance
  • Ease of use
  • Web search interface seems to periodically lose my saved tabs.
If you're not using a cloud logging platform of some type then stop what you are doing and switch immediately. As to choosing which cloud logging platform to use, I think that depends on your particular needs and which existing PAAS service provider(s) you already have. For our needs, SolarWinds Loggly is the best fit.

At my organization we use SolarWinds Loggly to capture web traffic for roughly 60 internal and external websites. We do this through one simple SolarWinds Loggly integration on our load balancer and reverse proxy, NGINX. The traffic that SolarWinds Loggly captures, gives us insight into traffic patterns on our sites. It also gives us the ability to quickly identify security and peformance threats such as DDOS and Brute-force attacks.
  • Not surprisingly, SolarWinds Loggly does a great job of capturing logs.
  • SolarWinds Loggly has really good reporting and data filtering built into the system.
  • SolarWinds Loggly has alerting built into the platform that allows you to create custom notifications. The notifications allow you to proactively see an issue before it affects the end users.
  • SolarWinds Loggly has prebuilt plugins for some of the most common data sources. We've only needed the NGINX integration and it was really easy to setup and configure.
  • SolarWinds Loggly's customer service has always been responsive and easy to work with.
  • It would be great if you could setup SolarWinds Loggly to send a daily summary to your inbox so you can see yesterday's logs without having ot log into SolarWinds Loggly.
  • It would be nice to have the ability to share a report with a colleague or outside vendor via email.
SolarWinds Loggly is great for capturing and organizing logs from 3rd party sources such as NGINX. Without SolarWinds Loggly it's really difficult to manage the logs overtime, find traffic patterns, and identify issues before they become a problem. Anyone who is routinely searching through massive log files could quickly benefit from the SolarWinds Loggly and it's capabilities.

We have a lot of integrations between different websites and API's that run in the background. This is sometimes hard to monitor. We use SolarWinds Loggly to keep progress and error logs, fetch statistics on the amount of errors, and get notifications when errors occur. This improved our ability to monitor these integrations immensely.
  • Keeping logs from different integrations in 1 place
  • Being able to filter to find the relevant logs
  • Sending notifications when some logs occur
  • More options when setting up alerts would be welcome
  • Being able to update an alert query once it is created
  • When selecting 'view before and after events', keep the same search parameters (tags, for example)
SolarWinds Loggly is well suited for keeping track of your code to find the source of an error. If you structure your logs well, you can filter out all unnecessary logs and only keep the ones you need, so you can find the problem more quickly. It is less suited for detailed alert logic.

We use Loggly as a syslog digest. Normally it is an after-the-fact tool for outages and anomalies. Syslog is an invaluable tool when troubleshooting outages and errors. As we experience outages we go back and sift through Loggly to see what the messages looked like at the event time and create alerts based on them to catch the problems in advance the next time. As a secondary method of catching issues before they become problems, we monitor the gross volume of messages daily. When they spike on a given day we know that something is up and go and find the offending source. Many times we catch the problem before it causes a customer impact event.
  • syslog digest
  • alerts based on syslog contents
  • sanity check on number of daily log events
  • post mortem on outages
  • the interface could be more intuitive
  • repetitive syslog dialog could either be highlighted or ignored by user choice
  • when a source spikes it's name could be included in the volume alert email
Loggly is a great resource initially to post-mortem your errors and outages. After identifying the respective log events it can help you set alerts to keep you ahead of the game next time. When a box experiences a hard failure it can take days to recover the local syslog for troubleshooting but Loggly already has the messages. It greatly reduces time and even increases security since my team only needs Loggly access and not CLI-level authentication on all my servers. Overall, Loggly saves time, increases security, alerts me before my customers see the issues, and always provides the forensics needed to identify the root cause of an outage.

Loggly gives us valuable insights into otherwise disparate log file data contained in multiple Docker containers. It allows us to have a consolidated view of application logs, exceptions, and events in an integrated dashboard.
  • Dashboard
  • Smart taxonomy
  • Data filtering
  • Default retention periods should be a bit longer
  • Data can sometimes be slow to propagate
Loggly is the perfect solution for integrating system and application logs residing in multiple containers, servers, or even data centers.

Our use of Loggly is mostly limited to storing debug/info/error logs from our software in a format that is both easily searchable and secure.
  • We love that we get 1gb of log storage per day (a limit we'll probably never even come close to touching)
  • We are able to send alerts based on thresholds that we set.
  • The Search feature is very powerful and it allows you to save searches.
  • The UI is a bit outdated.
  • Longer log storage would be great.
Great for getting logs off of your servers and in the cloud.

We needed a well rounded platform to aggregate system logs from all cloud platforms. Loggly provided this and made it easier to quickly troubleshoot issues in the virtual environment and give us a dashboard to view them. Triage of alerts is made easier using the event timeline feature of Loggly and helps to bring down our repair time.
  • Customizable Dashboards
  • Azure integration
  • Webhook integration
  • Cost
  • Speed of support
  • Better searching
  • Better user management
Loggly was not the best solution overall for us to use. It is more for heavily invested Azure and AWS companies. We had one Azure client but they have since moved to on-prem as the costs were to high. With everyone else on prem, it has not been worth it for us to continue to use Loggly. We used other solutions and will continue to that better meet our needs.

We use Loggly to monitor any issues, bugs or unexpected behavior including reporting purposes. The problem we faced was that the team required a tool which could easily find and alert on issues that didnt require the developers to login and trail the logs to see what was going on. Instead something more user-friendly that is quick and fast to find and setup alerts going forward. For us this was a win with Loggly.
  • Finding particular issues using tags
  • Setting up alerts with ease
  • Reporting
  • User friendly interface
  • At this stage we are happy with everything in the product that is catering for our needs
SolarWinds Loggly was our go to because of the great support, intuitive interface that's packed with functionality such as alerts, reporting and easy to find search results.

Loggly is currently being used in one of our systems for troubleshooting server and application issues and to making sure our transactions correlate. Currently, it is only in one of our systems but it will definitely expand to our other systems due to the powerful troubleshooting and very fast searching capability of Loggly.
  • Very fast searching capabilities.
  • Easily handles huge volumes of logs.
  • Searches are not always very intuitive.
  • User management is not the best.
Loggly is an easy-to-set-up log management tool and very well suited for those times where you need to aggregate logs from various sources and systems into a central location where they can be centrally searched, monitored, analyzed, and/or filtered to help maintain uptime on various systems. Loggly would not be as appropriate for companies that produce embedded systems.

We have several apps running on AWS EKS (Kubernetes on AWS), and we've used Loggly as a central repository of the logs for PHP-based apps with different frameworks, and also for the server running these apps. At the time of implementation, AWS didn't have a good central logs tool with reports, aggregate, and analysis from different sources taking into account that this application runs in autoscaling and highly available containers that are being constantly replaced.
  • Multiple sources for the logs, the amount of log sources available in Loggly is amazing! You can log from almost everything you can have running out there.
  • The charts and dashboards, it's really easy to find and see the information you need to find problems you might be having without noticing.
  • Centralization and aggregation, having multiple auto-scalable microservices running Loggly makes it really easy to centralize and aggregate all the data coming from these microservices.
  • The volume pricing scheme is tricky, as usually, you don't need more features but just more volume. I think a big improvement would some per/GB/MB pricing scheme if the volume is so important and not the 200MB, 1GB, and 100GB per day jumps that forces you to be controlling how much you log because, usually in the case of an incident, you can have more than 1GB per day but then on a normal day volume can fall below 200MB.
I think Loggly is a really strong solution when you have a lot of different sources of information (applications, services, cloud infrastructures) that you need to centralize to correlate in case of incidents, audits, or application improvement.

We use SolarWinds Loggly extensively in our cloud offerings, not across the whole organization. Using Loggly allows us to focus on real business needs, instead of development and management in-house log solution. Loggly helps a lot with troubleshooting searching, filtering, usage analysis, and graphical presentation of logs. The best feature is easy narrowing down of results by log message parameters.
  • Intuitive step-by-step filtering by message attributes.
  • Collapsing/extending log event data.
  • Flexible log list presentation with selection of attributes to present.
  • Graphical presentation of log events.
  • Ability to filter out specific type of messages from the list to focus on important ones. Filter by example.
  • Ability to send separate streams with cheaper cost and deeper storage, slower access times on demand only in specific cases.
Works well, helps to focus on real business.

We use it as the main tool for all logs that are being generated within Pernod Ricard applications. Both public and internal apps are supposed to send the logs the generate to Loggly.
It helps us to manage from a single point the access to that logs. Thus, we do not have to administer several tools.
  • The search engine particularly quick.
  • The ability to separate the access to various namespaces.
  • Sometimes the filters for the requests fail and we do not know why
  • We had issues with the SSO : the users had access to all the namespaces
If you have a lot of different tools hosted on various environments (either on Cloud platforms or not), organizations and you would like to centralize all of them, Loggly may be the right choice.

Loggly is being used by all of our applications across the company by our engineering staff. Loggly helps our engineers accurately filter and sort logs to help debugging test and production code. To help our engineers with debugging their code our Loggly system is setup to work with SolarWinds AppOptics to pin-point errors when they occur.
  • Easily takes sys-log connections from an app's standard output.
  • Easy to navigate the user interface.
  • Begins ingesting logs as soon as the connection to an app is made.
  • Having to add users to Loggly after having created them in AppOptics could be improved.
  • When search parameters are too specific Loggly often has a hard time filtering for what I'm looking for.
  • While it's easy to navigate, the UI isn't very pretty.
SolarWinds Loggly is well suited for an business that needs a logging system that integrates with an APM system. SolarWinds has made a great effort to tie their systems together to help companies maintain uptime across their systems. Loggly would be less appropriate for companies that manufacture embedded systems for example.

We are using Loggly to better monitor and debug a large scale application platform that is leveraging multiple microservices. We also have it configured into our web application talking to these services. Loggly provides us detailed information across all four environments (development, QA, UAT, Production) that enables us to better analyze and consolidate activity that can be interrelated at times.
  • Aggregation
  • Filtering
  • Detailed Information
  • Configuration
  • Visualization
  • Organization
Loggly is well suited to be a "catch all" for information that you don't need to have highly sorted/analyzed. It is schemaless in nature, which makes it a great fit for web logs, server logs, and other types of information. Because it is schemaless, it will not be a good for for situations where you need to aggregate and track specific log information.

It is being used now by our IT department, specifically by our dev team. It helps address our business continuity and as well as troubleshooting for our in-house software solutions we recently launched.
  • Easy enough to set up between our Azure environment and our on-prem.
  • Customizable to our needs.
  • No noticeable limitations to logging.
  • There was once a difficult issue to assess where the logs were occurring/transferring far too often, costing us additional data charges in Azure. Would be nice to have built in alerts for this kind of abnormal behavior.
Very useful for hybrid environments, like Azure and on-prem.

As we provide a PaaS to both internal employees and our partners, SolarWinds Loggly is essential to monitoring and diagnosing our cloud-based infrastructure. It's been essential for both our development team and our IT group to monitor usage and performance while also identifying and resolving any issues that come up.
  • Fast setup and deployment.
  • Very customizable.
  • Searching and sorting relevant data is intuitive.
  • It's not free.
  • Won't run stand-alone on-premises.
  • Doesn't look as slick as some other alternatives.
Loggly is primarily useful for combining logs into one centralized location. The insights that the dashboards provide also allow us to identify bottlenecks between microservices. We've had multiple instances where the ability to filter logs by keywords and seeing multiple servers' logs at the same time helped identify problems immediately. This has saved us days of troubleshooting.

We use Loggly as an aggregation point to stream logs from network access switches and core routers. There can be quite a lot of data and existing solutions relied on older database technologies which broke down after a time and we'd have to manually intervene to truncate tables, etc. Loggly manages the entire process for us and just works.
  • Keeps working!
  • Fast searches.
  • Easy to configure searches - you don't have to be an expert in RegExp...
  • Not all searches are intuitive.
  • We have to use a log aggregating device to ship our logs to Loggly as our network devices can not connect on an encrypted protocol. I would prefer if we could use some sort of VPN-based connector to ship logs securely.
  • Sometimes when drilled down, it can be difficult to fully reset a search term to back all the way out of a drill down.
It is well suited to very large volumes of logs where the immediate past is the area of interest, e.g. in situations where the issues are in the recent past. Loggly makes it very easy to search for particular terms of interest, within a specific time frame across the entire estate of devices or, indeed, within a subset, or on a specific device of interest. There does seem to be a short delay in the logs though, even with the "live tail" feature, Loggly might be less suited to "emerging" situations where the issues are occurring in real time.

We previously had a very disjointed way of gathering, searching and responding to issues that where logged from our systems and apps, implementing Loggly across the whole of our server estate has enabled us to track down issues quickly, allowing them to be dealt with efficiently and with minimal issues to the company.
We are able to log different areas of the business, grouping systems and apps. this allows our searching and history tracing for logs to be much more effective.
  • The collection tools for Loggly are very strong and the setup for those tools is incredibly easy.
  • Support are fairly quick to respond and super helpful.
  • Capturing and interrogating logs is easy across many deployments, platforms and devices.
  • Sometimes queries don't work as you think they should.
  • Getting data arranged so that everything comes to play is fiddly.
  • Daily data limits can be a pain if you have a spike in logging.
Loggly was brought in when we where trying to trace issues down on our domain, by having it implemented across our Domain Controllers, we were able to find and resolve our known issues very quickly.
The querying system could do with a better FAQ or guidance as when trying to run a structured query, sometimes no data is found even though you can definitely see that data by manual search.

Loggly is our centralized logging and alerting service. It's part of our overall monitoring solution which also includes Prometheus, InfluxDB, and Grafana. It was initially only used by the Software Development and Cloud Engineering teams but has grown to also include Support and Operations.
  • Vendor-hosted and fully managed.
  • It performs reasonably well.
  • User management is awful (deleted users are "renamed" and still appear in the system; no SSO).
  • Pricing is too high, given the limited features (yes, it's cheaper than many alternatives but they offer much more functionality).
  • UI feels clunky and dated.
  • Only 2 customer tokens allowed - why?
  • Pricing only based on basic ingestion/retention values - what about e.g. retaining ERROR logs for longer than DEBUG logs, or retaining PROD logs longer than DEV logs?
Loggly is only well-suited for young projects. Great to get a fully-managed hosted logging solution set up with only a few clicks, but once you have any real complexity (multiple services and environments) or more than a few GB/day worth of log volume the weaknesses really start to show.

Loggly allows us to collect the logs from our various services in our solution and see them in one place.
  • Loggly is easy to integration. If you can make JSON from your logs you can use it. Adding it to a Python stack was trivial. Standard python logging, Loggly backend.
  • Easy user management to allow people see view the logs.
  • Documented API to retrieve and query the logs.
  • The search interface. It remembers the last time window you chose. So you constantly are looking at the wrong logs.
  • Everything is chunked on words. So searching for say an email address does not consistently work be it breaks into someone, somewhere, com.
  • filtering in the results is quite limited. Copy and paste is often broken by how the results are displayed.
  • Finding the link to share a particular log is a process of frustration of finding just the right place to click to make the buttons appear.
Having all of the data in great. Not being able to find it is not so great. The promise of charting is alluring but it is hard to create charts that show what I am interested in seeing. I currently sift through the site but also do a fair amount using the API instead.

We use SolarWinds Loggly to monitor one specific server. Our clients need us to deliver reliably and thorough monitoring is essential for reliability. Monitoring the log files of the server helps us to detect issues before they affect the system.
We monitor operating system, web server and application logs. This allows us to detect load peaks, issues in the application, attempted attacks or any other anomalies early.
  • A key feature for me is drilling down logs, finding what I am looking for quickly.
  • Creating graphs and dashboards for important information at a glance.
  • Setting alarms in case something unexpected happens.
  • Adding log sources is easy.
  • Users that want to use Loggly to its full power need to invest some time.
  • It's not very cheap.
  • I struggled adding logs with dynamic names.
I think that Loggly is suitable for all projects where constant and reliable log monitoring is needed and where the price matches the project's capacity. The price might be a show stopper for smaller companies or projects.
Loggly is also very good to monitor logs from many servers at once, a feature that I don't use but would recommend doing if applicable.

It's currently being used by the IT/Engineering team for managing log across different stacks we use at the backend. Purely for log analysis and issue resolutions. It's generally useful for us to pinpoint unusual traffic in various services and also have notifications via email setup in place for reporting critical errors.
  • Great search experience.
  • Good buffer to handle one off data volumes exceeding plan limits.
  • Awesome alert mechanism with filters & threshold.
  • No proper key indexing for logs synced via default lambda blueprint.
  • Tag based filtering disappear while looking nearby events.
Works well for log analysis, search, tracing issue/related logs. Good & reliable integrations with sdk for almost all stacks.
