Busy web logs contain thousands of entries an hour, so identifying important log messages is challenging.
Manually tracing transactions across front-end and back-end services is a slow process.
Trends and patterns can get lost in the noise of large log files.
Aggregate your logs in one place and analyze them holistically to easily find the information you need when troubleshooting. Send your logs to SolarWinds® Papertrail™ using one of the many syslog-capable tools and libraries. You can also take advantage of its standalone remote_syslog2 daemon, which watches plain-text files for new messages. Transmit logs over UDP or TCP with TLS encryption for improved security. All your logs are stored in the cloud, so you can quickly adjust to changes in logging needs without deploying more hardware or setting up additional systems. Control which users can access which logs using the access control feature in Papertrail. Grant read-only or full access to individual files or use the log group feature to assign access to collections of log files.Sign up for a free plan
Uncover insights into your web apps and services by viewing log messages as you receive them. With the live tail feature in Papertrail, you can pause, scroll, and search through the live feed in real time. Filter incoming messages by time, origin, or custom fields such as session ID. If you need to further refine your log messages, you can use powerful regular expressions to filter out unwanted noise. Apply search filters to different systems, apps, and environments to trim down huge log volumes and focus on the log data you need. The Papertrail CLI lets you pipe and redirect live feed output to the command line, and it can use colors to highlight the command-line output.Sign up for a free plan
Catching emerging problems before your users notice them requires vigilant monitoring of your web apps and services. Turn a search into an alert by saving it and scheduling it to run every minute, hour, or day. This ability to customize your searches means you can easily monitor rapidly changing metrics such as request latency, and you can gather daily summaries of metrics like daily active users. Inactivity alerts allow you to trigger an alert when an expected event doesn’t occur, such as when a backup fails to run. You can optionally configure a minimum threshold for each alert so it won’t trigger until a specified number of events are seen. Receive notifications via email or third-party collaboration tools like Slack, Campfire, and PagerDuty. Papertrail also allows you to send notifications via custom HTTP webhooks, which integrate seamlessly with whatever internal monitoring solutions you’re using.Sign up for a free plan
