A variety of AWS log tools complicates log analysis.
Finding the root cause of issues takes longer when multiple AWS services are involved.
It can be difficult to monitor several logs from AWS services. Trends and early indicators of growing issues can get lost in the noise.
Applications and services based on AWS produce huge amounts of log data, which is often stored in multiple locations. By aggregating all of your logs together in a single place, you can simplify analysis and create a holistic picture of your AWS infrastructure. SolarWinds® Papertrail™ enables you to use a single interface to search through all your logs and provides filters and interactive search results to narrow down the results. Papertrail automatically scans your logs and allows you to search based on individual tokens. Aggregated logs are stored in the cloud, so storage capacity can grow to meet your log data demands. Plus, with all of your logs stored in the cloud you can easily archive old data for long-term analysis. Log management is easy with global retention policies allowing you to quickly update configuration settings whenever your policies change.Sign up for a free plan
Papertrail supports a simple but powerful search syntax to help you cut through the noise and jump to the relevant AWS log messages when troubleshooting. Filter logs based on date, sender, or custom fields such as session ID, so you can focus on the messages you need—no matter which part of your infrastructure they came from. Use regular expressions to create more complex filters and apply them to the incoming events in real time to gain instant visibility into your systems. Use powerful contextual searching, to create an end-to-end history and establish a chain of events leading up to an incident. Clickable elements in the event viewer allow you to narrow your search further to specific systems or individual users. You can also use contextual links to view all of the logs from multi-line exceptions and reduce analysis time.Sign up for a free plan
Monitoring is essential for identifying trends and anomalies before your users notice. With Papertrail you can quickly turn searches into alerts by saving them and assigning a schedule. This way you never miss an incident or problem. You can schedule alerts to run every minute, hour, or day, so you have maximum flexibility to keep track of the most frequent and critical metrics, such as request latency, and higher-level statistics like daily active users. Inactivity alerts keep you up to date when expected events fail, such as when a backup doesn’t run. Notifications via email, Slack, PagerDuty, or Campfire, ensure your entire team is aware of every development. You can also integrate alerts into your own monitoring tools via custom HTTP web hooks.Sign up for a free plan
