Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds Loggly

SolarWinds Loggly is used by the IT department. The chief focus is logging application errors and warnings to be able to detect problems with our system, as well as understand informational messages surrounding those warnings and errors.
  • Detecting logs messages for alerts
  • Log drill-downs through attributes
  • Bringing various sources together
  • Charts/metrics
  • Understanding and adapting to specific formats
  • Docker system ingesting
  • Improved uptime based on proactive log alerts
  • Decreased cycle time by making it easy to ingest several environments and use the same tool for each
  • Eased on-boarding by using a single tool to access many system logs
None. Many of the PHP dashboards assume a clean log environment, where many of our legacy systems issue “ errors” that aren’t actually problematic. So the dashboard we use must be custom.
We use them to be able to parse out PHP’s severity levels, which for some reason is not included as a default option in the implementation of a PHP error parser.
We use cloud watch for AWS logs, Jira for incident detection.
Very important, as onboarding is decreased when we have one interface that can monitor everything. As well as avoiding duplicate rules, notifications, etc.
Loggly is simple and reliable. It doesn’t require a huge amount of overhead and gets us the data we need to do the job with minimal intrusion.
Logging application output for several applications or across different systems is done well with SolarWinds Loggly. Single applications are overkill. Charts and metrics are not its strong suit, but instead, the primary strength seems to be identifying individual log messages instead of tracing. Good at alerting for particular problems.
