Large, complex IT infrastructures generate logs constantly and often leave those logs littered across devices.
To get the information you need, you must sort through silos of data, which can be a time-consuming hassle.
Logs generated from different devices and applications tend to be unstructured and hard to query. Manually organizing them into groups for easy searching can be a challenge.
Because logs are generated in large volumes around the clock, collecting and organizing them can be a challenge. With SolarWinds® Papertrail™, you can easily collect and send log files from various system components directly to the user-friendly cloud platform. Easily consolidate logs in a range of forms, including syslogs and Windows events. Papertrail transmits these files over UDP or TCP with TLS encryption. This automatic log aggregation also scans and analyzes event logs as they stream in, meaning you can track events in real time, with critical visibility into application performance, system activity, and any errors needing a quick response.Sign up for a free plan
Across complex systems, performance issues can arise at any minute. Without the ability to search for specific log files, it can be difficult to identify why an issue occurred or know how to repair it. Papertrail makes log searching easy by allowing you to search log data from a variety of sources—applications, servers, and more. You can easily sort and search log files using an intuitive but powerful query syntax. In addition, Papertrail offers a save search feature to let you save searches you may want to use again. You can name searches and share them across your team.Sign up for a free plan
In order to get the most mileage out of your log data, it’s important to be able to monitor and search logs in real time. With the Papertrail event viewer, you can turn large silos of log data into real-time insights. Papertrail enables users to live tail log files from dozens of systems and formats, including syslog, text-log files, MySQL events, Windows events, and logs from third-party sources like Apache, Tomcat, or Heroku web applications you might be running. Once these logs are aggregated, you can search and scroll with ease. You can also define alerts and create clickable log elements like IP addresses, UUIDs, and user IDs.Sign up for a free plan
