Overall Satisfaction with Loggly

I use Loggly at my home for monitoring the logs from around 10 services. It saves me time by reviewing logs online. Loggly also helped me solve a problem with one of my services I wasn't even aware of. Currently, Loggly works on one of my machines which produces around 500 logs daily so I can't say much about performance. Search windows recommend names of the indexed fields so you don't have to know the structure by heart. You can easily install file monitoring by running a prepared script from SolarWinds, which will update your rsyslog configuration, which is nice. In my current company, we use a similar tool 'Kibana ' and I don't see much differences.
  • Runs in the cloud. You don't have to install it on premise.
  • Has a prepared script for rsyslog updates. You don't have to know your rsyslog configuration, the prepared script will do all the work for you.
  • I can't change the order of the tabs (saved searches).
  • I don't use it for business. Loggly allows me to serve the internet, NAS, and DNS services to my home users as it monitors the machine and allows me to react earlier before an outage occurs.
We use Kibana in my company and I don't see much difference, except layout. I would stack both products as the same. I have selected Loggly because I don't have to use it on-premise in the free version.
Personally, I use it for monitoring on one bare-metal machine. I use cloud installation, so my local machine is not overloaded with monitoring. This is a perfect solution for a small infrastructure like mine.
