Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds Loggly
Loggly is a neat a straight forward product. We use to centralize most of our application and security logs, including WAF data which we then transform into nice dashboards for quick overviews
- Log centralization
- Other solutions can be quite pricing and more complicated, like ELK stacks
Setup is quick and easy, and Loggly documentation already provides the necessary steps for most systems.
Yes - We used to have an In house ELK stack, which was great, but really needed a lot of attention and maintenance. After some time it became a big hassle to keep it performant and up to date. We have tried several tools before, and we still use some logging solutions provided by AWS and Azure, but those are use more in conjunction with the cloud services they provide. But Loggly is our go tool for pretty much everything else.
- Product Features
- Product Usability
One of the most important purchase decision for us was that Loggly had the exact features that we wante. Easy integration with our data sources, quick exploration panel, charts, dashboards, and custom alerts. It's as if it was tailor made for our need.
Also it's very easy to get the hang of it. We don't usually have to teach new comers how to use it, since they usually get the hang of it pretty quickly.
Apart from all of that, the price of Loggly is surprisingly low for the panel of features it has.
