Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds Loggly

We have several apps running on AWS EKS (Kubernetes on AWS), and we've used Loggly as a central repository of the logs for PHP-based apps with different frameworks, and also for the server running these apps. At the time of implementation, AWS didn't have a good central logs tool with reports, aggregate, and analysis from different sources taking into account that this application runs in autoscaling and highly available containers that are being constantly replaced.
  • Multiple sources for the logs, the amount of log sources available in Loggly is amazing! You can log from almost everything you can have running out there.
  • The charts and dashboards, it's really easy to find and see the information you need to find problems you might be having without noticing.
  • Centralization and aggregation, having multiple auto-scalable microservices running Loggly makes it really easy to centralize and aggregate all the data coming from these microservices.
  • The volume pricing scheme is tricky, as usually, you don't need more features but just more volume. I think a big improvement would some per/GB/MB pricing scheme if the volume is so important and not the 200MB, 1GB, and 100GB per day jumps that forces you to be controlling how much you log because, usually in the case of an incident, you can have more than 1GB per day but then on a normal day volume can fall below 200MB.
  • A lot less time troubleshooting incidents and helping customers solve their issues.
  • Easy on boarding, so after implementation, you get a really fast start seeing the benefits.
Loggly was the easiest to use and the one that really allowed us to get a full view of what's going on with our services, and proactively solve problems.
I think Loggly is a really strong solution when you have a lot of different sources of information (applications, services, cloud infrastructures) that you need to centralize to correlate in case of incidents, audits, or application improvement.


Yes - We used CloudWatch and EFK stack for logs monitoring, but loggly gave a us a plus when it comes to fast analysis of what's happening at our applications.
  • Product Features
  • Product Usability
The features and usability are the highest point with loggly. It's intuitive to use for technical personnel, and also has great feature to analyze and correlate the different logs.
