Overall Satisfaction with Loggly

We use Loggly to monitor and secure our servers across our portfolio of satellite setups. It is used primarily to manage the typical maintenance of our systems, but has also evolved to become part of our security workflow.

Pros

  • Flexible dashboards
  • Ease of initial installation
  • Live feed is useful and allows for quick exploration of incoming issues

Cons

  • Initial setup of dashboards has a steep learning curve.
  • I find help and guides to be lacking.
  • I find the subscription offers are not accomodating for all use cases, and should be finer grained to allow for a better price/need match.
  • Improved asset and process management
  • Support turnaround time has markedly improved since we have implemented Loggly.
Loggly is well suited to alert on typical issues that come up at the server level given the particular software setups that we utilise. We have particular problems that need to be monitored, when these appear we are informed [and can] take action quickly. It is a straightforward function but one that is of high value for us. As we continue to use Loggly we are broadening the points on which monitoring takes place, continuing to expand its value for our operations.

I cannot comment on less appropriate scenarios as it fulfills on the core scenario for which we installed it.
