Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds Loggly

Loggly is being used by all of our applications across the company by our engineering staff. Loggly helps our engineers accurately filter and sort logs to help debugging test and production code. To help our engineers with debugging their code our Loggly system is setup to work with SolarWinds AppOptics to pin-point errors when they occur.
  • Easily takes sys-log connections from an app's standard output.
  • Easy to navigate the user interface.
  • Begins ingesting logs as soon as the connection to an app is made.
  • Having to add users to Loggly after having created them in AppOptics could be improved.
  • When search parameters are too specific Loggly often has a hard time filtering for what I'm looking for.
  • While it's easy to navigate, the UI isn't very pretty.
  • Increased use of logging software.
  • Integration with APM software
  • Easier to navigate logging system.
SolarWinds Loggly integrates well with other SOlarWinds products, and that is ultimately why we chose to use Loggly. LogDNA was fine for our needs, but costly for only providing logging.
SolarWinds Loggly is well suited for an business that needs a logging system that integrates with an APM system. SolarWinds has made a great effort to tie their systems together to help companies maintain uptime across their systems. Loggly would be less appropriate for companies that manufacture embedded systems for example.


Yes - LogDNA, the cost of which was too high for just logging. We changed to Loggly because it works with AppOptics application monitoring.
  • Price
  • Product Features
  • Product Usability
Product Features was the most important factor in the decision. The main feature being APM integration.
