Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds Loggly

SolarWinds Loggly is used for centralized application logging, search, and graphing. It is used by Engineering, Quality Assurance, Tech Operations, Tech Support, and Services Org to quickly search and locate application errors, metadata and event count. Loggly built-in features enable trending and performance tracking of the full application stack.
  • Visually represent event count via bar graphs.
  • Statistical function for graphing medium and 95th percentile performance metrics.
  • Fast return of search results.
  • Supports log streaming via Fluent.
  • The price model for the log ingestion rate is rigid and pushes for a higher usage commitment for companies with variable log generation due to weekly or monthly patterns.
  • Does not support long term cold storage as an option for uploaded logs.
  • Limited to no integration with other Solarwinds MSP product lines.
  • Easy to setup and get going for rapid deployment and adoption.
  • Extensible platform with feature-rich dash board capabilities.
  • User friendly web interface and shareable links.
  • Hassle-free SaaS model to free up technical staff from managing the log aggregation and search platform.
I have used EFK stack (ElasticSearch, Fluentd, and Kibana) and Splunk. Solarwind Loggly is the most flexible managed service out of these solutions and suitable for companies embracing the SaaS model
Excellent performance and service reliability. Easy and intuitive web GUI. The option of multiple accounts to separate access and log aggregation between Dev/QA, staging and production environments. Easy to implement and supports multiple log streaming methods. Logs can be categorized and configured to restrict access.
