Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds Loggly

At my organization we use SolarWinds Loggly to capture web traffic for roughly 60 internal and external websites. We do this through one simple SolarWinds Loggly integration on our load balancer and reverse proxy, NGINX. The traffic that SolarWinds Loggly captures, gives us insight into traffic patterns on our sites. It also gives us the ability to quickly identify security and peformance threats such as DDOS and Brute-force attacks.

Pros

  • Not surprisingly, SolarWinds Loggly does a great job of capturing logs.
  • SolarWinds Loggly has really good reporting and data filtering built into the system.
  • SolarWinds Loggly has alerting built into the platform that allows you to create custom notifications. The notifications allow you to proactively see an issue before it affects the end users.
  • SolarWinds Loggly has prebuilt plugins for some of the most common data sources. We've only needed the NGINX integration and it was really easy to setup and configure.
  • SolarWinds Loggly's customer service has always been responsive and easy to work with.

Cons

  • It would be great if you could setup SolarWinds Loggly to send a daily summary to your inbox so you can see yesterday's logs without having ot log into SolarWinds Loggly.
  • It would be nice to have the ability to share a report with a colleague or outside vendor via email.
  • Before SolarWinds Loggly, we would experience hours if not days of performance issues on our sites because of DDOS attacks. SolarWinds Loggly takes a who portion of guess and investigative work out of the equation.
  • We can quickly identify issues in our logs and spend our time working on the solution instead of trying to identify the problem.

Would you buy SolarWinds Loggly again?

Yes

SolarWinds Loggly is great for capturing and organizing logs from 3rd party sources such as NGINX. Without SolarWinds Loggly it's really difficult to manage the logs overtime, find traffic patterns, and identify issues before they become a problem. Anyone who is routinely searching through massive log files could quickly benefit from the SolarWinds Loggly and it's capabilities.
