Every application, service, device, and program generates logs at a near-constant rate. With so much data, it can be difficult to catch and resolve critical events.
Not every component application or system generates logs in the same format. This makes parsing and searching log events from multiple sources both time-consuming and challenging.
Because logs are generated in enormous volumes, monitoring them manually is a near-impossible challenge. With such large volumes of data, it’s easy to miss trends and recurring problems.
With SolarWinds® Papertrail™, you get the real-time visibility you need. You can monitor and search log messages using events by leveraging up-to-date log collection, all through a single, easy-to-interpret interface. This log monitoring tool offers you instant visibility into all of the events occurring across your IT infrastructure, including systems, applications, servers, and more. With these improved insights, you can easily transform large amounts of raw data into actionable information. You can then leverage this data to monitor and manage the performance and health of critical components. What’s more, Papertrail allows you to tail and scroll through event logs as they are being generated. With better visibility into the logs currently being generated across your systems— along with quick access to historic logs, as needed—you can improve your log monitoring process and easily gain in-depth insight into events.Sign up for a free plan
Manually analyzing log files to discover root causes can be stressful and tedious. But Papertrail offers the log data insights and analysis you need to ensure your applications are meeting performance KPIs. With Papertrail, finding the root cause of any performance issue is made easy with the ability to trace a chain of log events back to its original source. Additionally, with the easy-to-use interface, you can search and tail logs from multiple sources and filter these events with preconfigured metrics. You can query specific logs by date, IP address, hostname, service name, or a myriad of other customizable metrics. You can even export the complete event chain and share it among your teams to facilitate collaboration, improve troubleshooting, and reduce MTTR.Sign up for a free plan
The Papertrail log monitoring tool supports built-in, automatic alerts that notify you of potential problems with the performance and health of critical components. You can customize alert settings to receive specific types of notifications, along with detailed timestamps, graphs, and charts that provide insight into the flagged issue. This feature offers you more context around specific alerts and helps kickstart the troubleshooting process. At the same time, you don’t have to put up with endless alerting noise—it’s possible to configure the system to send only the critical alerts you need. In addition to standard channels like email and SMS, Papertrail alerts can be integrated with dozens of popular third-party communication channels, including Slack, PagerDuty, and custom webhooks.Sign up for a free plan
