Different tools use various log formats, and new ones keep appearing.
It’s difficult to establish a chain of events by hand without making costly mistakes.
Building a view of trends and patterns is difficult with low-level log messages.
Parse many different log file formats with SolarWinds® Papertrail™ and automatically analyze them to provide you with new insights for your services and infrastructure. Send log messages to Papertrail using the syslog protocol over UDP or TCP with TLS encryption for better security. The stand-alone remote_syslog2 daemon in Papertrail can watch plain-text files and forward new entries when they’re written. Use the event viewer to see your log messages in an easy-to-use interface. No matter how many log files you want to analyze, searching through them is painless because everything is stored in the cloud. With all your log files in the cloud, you can expand your storage capacity and keep pace with your logging requirements. Papertrail also allows you to configure access control and provide users with read-only or full access to log files. Assign team members access to individual files or use log groups to grant access to collections of files.Sign up for a free plan
It can be difficult to extract insights from your log data when you’re only looking at low-level event details. This is where the log velocity analytics feature in Papertrail comes in. This feature allows you to see the volume of log or event data over time to help you get a quick understanding of high-level details such as how many times latency spiked over the last few days or how today’s app error rate compares with yesterday’s. You can even identify longer patterns and trends by extending the time range over multiple weeks, which is handy for spotting anomalies before they affect your users. With just two clicks of your interactive visualization, you can jump to a specific time and analyze the surrounding events in greater detail.Sign up for a free plan
