Grafana Loki

Overall Satisfaction with Grafana Loki

As Grafana Loki is open-source logging and monitoring solution. We are using Kubernetes Cluster for our application deployment we are using Loki for Log aggregation of pods logs, jobs logs, and nodes logs, so we don't have to give access to Kubernetes cluster. Also, we are using Grafana for monitoring our Infrastructure, Cluster, Nodes Monitoring, Pods Monitoring, and our public cloud service provider.


  • Access to many open-source dashboards, access to add many data-sources to gather and visualize data from.
  • Grafana Loki does well gathering of logs from various data-sources, we can also filter the logs based on our needs.
  • One stop solution for all the logs and monitoring.


  • We can modify the logs directly from UI of Grafana Loki
  • Better and simplified options for logs filtering
  • Easy usability with SMTP configuration and other system level configuration
  • Logs gathering and monitoring from various data-sources
  • Access control
  • One stop solution for monitoring and logging
  • Only indexes the metadata
  • Have to manage it by ourselves compare to other available managed monitoring and log observability solutions
  • Dedicated person or team of SRE to manage the monitoring and observability solutions
First and foremost if Grafana Loki is based on CNCF open source projects so organizations can get freedom to choice to configure it at your own other main thing is Grafana Loki is totally free of cost and we can deploy it on our infrastructure. On compared with other managed services like Datadog, New Relic it is very expensive and we also don't have much control on the tools we use.
