Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds Loggly

It's currently being used by the IT/Engineering team for managing log across different stacks we use at the backend. Purely for log analysis and issue resolutions. It's generally useful for us to pinpoint unusual traffic in various services and also have notifications via email setup in place for reporting critical errors.
  • Great search experience.
  • Good buffer to handle one off data volumes exceeding plan limits.
  • Awesome alert mechanism with filters & threshold.
  • No proper key indexing for logs synced via default lambda blueprint.
  • Tag based filtering disappear while looking nearby events.
  • Helps us focusing on tracing out root cause of issues and reducing impact radius.
Loggly is at another level at indexing and search experience. However, since CloudWatch has the full history with least cost it is always the fallback. So if Loggly has something like S3 glacier kind of feature for keeping old logs which are least accessed with less cost, that would nice.
Works well for log analysis, search, tracing issue/related logs. Good & reliable integrations with sdk for almost all stacks.
