Connecting to multiple servers to search through NGINX logs is laborious and time-consuming.
Manually correlating transactions across NGINX logs is difficult and increases the time it takes to analyze and troubleshoot issues.
Large log volumes make it hard to locate the log messages you need and ignore the messages you don’t.
Because it aggregates your logs in a single location in the cloud, the intuitive interface in SolarWinds® Papertrail™ makes it simple to search through your logs. Analyze your web servers holistically and cut through the noise to find the information you need when you need it. Because all your logs are stored in the cloud, it’s easy to scale storage capacity to meet your logging demands. Plus, accessing your logs with search queries is lightning fast no matter how much data you have. Control which users in your team can access which logs using the tool’s access control features in the members area of the account settings. Grant full or read-only permissions to team members and tightly control which ones can purge logs. Assign permissions using individual files or take advantage of log groups for a more high-level approach to access control.Sign up for a free plan
Noisy NGINX logs make it time-consuming to understand the events leading up to an incident. Papertrail provides a context-rich search feature to establish a chain of events and find the root cause of issues. The event viewer offers clickable elements designed to narrow down the displayed log results. Click on IP addresses to see all the logs from a single user, no matter which web server handled their requests. By doing so, you can build an infrastructure-wide history and create an end-to-end link of events. If an NGINX web server crashes, you can click on the sender name to see messages from the machine, making troubleshooting much faster and helping you get your web servers up and running sooner.Sign up for a free plan
Papertrail provides a simple search syntax for sifting through your NGINX logs. Use text searches to quickly find matching log messages and combine query strings using Boolean operators. You can reduce the number of search results by using search attributes only matching log messages with values in specific fields. Reduce log volume even further by filtering your logs based on time, origin, or custom fields such as user ID. If you need even more control over the logs you view, you can use powerful regular expressions to further refine your logs. The live tail feature in Papertrail lets you see incoming log messages as you receive them and search through them in real time. Pause, search, and scroll through a live feed of messages or use the Papertrail CLI to direct the feed to the command line. The CLI allows you to convert the output into JSON for easy integration with other tools.Sign up for a free plan
