Sematext Cloud overview

What is Sematext Cloud?

Sematext Cloud is an all-in-one observability tool that helps businesses assess and gain key insights into the front and back-end performance of system applications. Features include real user and synthetic monitoring, transaction tracing, infrastructure monitoring, and log management. It also enables organizations to identify key performance issues via actionable analytics.

Sematext Cloud allows enterprises to detect potential anomalies across the system and receive automated alerts via emails, mobile push notifications, and other ChatOps including Slack, PagerDuty, and more. Developers can view the list of available assets or servers, filter them based on tags, conduct audits of all software packages, and utilize the search functionality to retrieve specific details from the repository.

Sematext Cloud offers an API, which enables businesses to integrate the platform with various third-party applications such as Docker, Hashicorp Nomad, Redis, Nginx, and more. The software also helps users monitor network topology, site performance, Java Virtual Machine (JVM), containers, user experience, and resource management processes on a centralized platform.

Way more than a log tool

Used weekly for 1-2 years
Reviewed 2020-09-25
Review Source: Capterra

Sematex has become increasingly essential in our tool set. It goes far beyond a simple log manager, delivering valuable information from this huge amount of data.

Pros
Sematex has impressed us in recent months for its ability to deliver robust tools for analyzing and mining the information present in our logs. Through its customizable Dashboards, we can analyze very important statistics both to characterize the behavior of our users and to help us identify problems in our code.

Cons
The experience of using the Sematex interface has improved a lot, but it is not always so intuitive to find the resources we want. Reading the logs is also not as clean as I would like to see.

Response from Sematext Group

One stop solution for infrastructure insights!

Used daily for less than 6 months

Review Source: Capterra

I used this to manage my infra and this has really helped me a lot to understand the usage pattern of the app and also helps in safely predicting when the load will be high and when it will be low. Finding out memory leaks for JVM has also been very easy when I was trying to get insights about GC and JVM pool.

Pros
- Very detailed reports - Installing an agent happens in a jiffy - Very intuitive UI - Good support from the Sematext team

Cons
- Documentation missing for old agents - Ubuntu < 16 - Agent once crashed - cause is still unknown!

Worth switching from other logging aggregation

Satisfied but need more time to evaluate

Pros
I just switch from ELK. Sematext is a surprise to me. It is so easy to integrate and so easy to use. The web UI is so intuitive and the query syntax is so easy to use even if you are not a technical guy. Compared to ELK, it is a real cloud service, you never need to worry about you lose the logs .

Cons
I haven’t found so far. Only thing is the price is a little bit high for a standup.

IoT log monitoring made easy

Used weekly for 6-12 months
Reviewed 2020-09-25
Review Source: Capterra

We have been monitoring a fleet of IoT devices with Sematext. Using it we can quickly send data from the devices and analyze it later, making feature development faster and debugging way easier.

Pros
Easy to use and extremely fast to filter log data. Ready-to-use Java and Android libraries made integration a very fast process. Main UI is very similar to Kibana, and it also provides the full experience if you need it. Fast and knowledgeable tech support.

Cons
There are rare instances where the UI becomes unresponsive or slow.

Much More Than Log Aggregation

Used daily for 2+ years
Reviewed 2020-09-24
Review Source: Capterra

Sematext is a proven and reliable offering, without a single outage I can recall in the past 2.5 years. The customer support is amazing and queries are answered without fail within a couple of hours. They are constantly working on the product and increasing their offerings. They offer customers the chance to trial new products and give feedback, which is fantastic. We use Sematext for: * Log Aggregation * Monitoring and Alerting * Incident Investigation * Log Retention * Debugging I love how we can easily set up alerts on logs and receive Slack or OpsGenie notifications when events occur. I would highly recommend Sematext as a vendor.

Pros
* Super Reliable * Excellent Customer Support * Constantly Adding Features * Constantly Improving

Cons
There are very few things not to like about this software and company. The way accounts are set up, where you have to log in then "become" the account owner to see your logs is strange, and needs to be explained to each new user.

Response from Sematext Group


Hey! Thanks a lot for your feedback regarding the RBAC. We've worked on several improvements in the way you can configure account permissions for every member of a team. Feedback like this help us a lot to understand what should be improved. Thanks again!
