Hassle free integeration with AWS

2019-01-08

I have generated multiple Dashboards for real time analytics of cloud watch logs.

Pros

Option to generate variety of Dashboards from real-time streaming data.

Cons

I didn't like the tabular interface. you have to scroll all the way to the right to find your tabs.

Flexible and detailed log analysis software for System Administrators

2018-11-02

I use Sumo Logic to ingest logs across a fleet of about 125 servers, including Windows and Linux servers. Setup was pretty straightforward. Documentation is detailed and complete. Customer support and tech support are mostly competent and cooperative. I'd definitely recommend this product, especially to smaller startups or businesses that can't or don't want to implement their own logging server infrastructure.

Pros

Extremely flexible search and reporting Log ingestion from essentially any source Good support for major operating systems Decent technical support Good communication with customers Continuously improving the software in all areas PCI/DSS qualified

Cons

Some very poor UI design decisions Poor account management Performance can be very bad for searches over large data sets or long timeframes Expensive

Very Clear Dashboard

2020-06-07

This comprises of a monitoring and alerting tool for engineers and visualising usage spikes for internal display to stakeholders.

Pros

API integration for simple counts, creating alerts, and setting thresholds is simple enough and easily achievable by following the online documentation and examples.

Cons

The API integration can be difficult to leverage the more advanced features, such as log monitoring. Drilling down to raw numbers for a given time range is not as easy as I would like.

Heavyweight in monitoring

2018-08-01

Pros

I like the fact that it looks like a mobile app, it is very simple to use, setting up your dashboard is very simple, real-time monitoring is reliable and being able to add a different filter to every running job, gives makes monitoring very simple

Cons

the "live mode" button sometimes you open up the app and you forget to switch it on, it would be better if the app is always on live mode

Sumo Logic Review

2019-06-07

An ideal solution for scaling up things when it comes to cloud operations and analytics.

Pros

You can use the dashboard to manage logs of various applications.

Cons

The live-mode feature should be made such that when you start the tool, you are automatically switched on because it's easy to forget to switch it on every time you're starting it.

Excellent logging integration with Sumo Logic

2018-08-03

It has helped in monitoring of our servers and finding the faults fast.

Pros

You can configure it the way you want it to behave and give you the readings in the real time. You can know the properties of a running job from all the jobs on the dashboard which is a great plus from the similar softwares.

Cons

Sometimes it is very hard to reach customer support , you may have to wait till someone can come to your rescue on an issue.

Not intuitive for data retrieval

2018-12-28

Pros

There are user guides at-hand for doing data searches, following best practices.

Cons

This is more of a problem if you actually need to search your data for specifics on a regular basis; if you're just managing the data and only searching for real time data, it may not be quite as important.

A Powerful Tool

2020-09-26

Overall this tool fantastic.

Pros

Searching is powerful and fast and user data can be shared with the organization.

Cons

Pricing can get expensive depending on how you use the tool. Also, although queries can be shared, the original author is the only one who can edit them.

Good Way to Visualize Logs

2019-04-18

This is a very good value for money log searching tool for startup and small businesses

Pros

Really good user interface The speed of the search is decent

Cons

This is not really a 'con' but just a reality - free version only provides you with 500MB per day. So if you are an enterprise, chances are that you will need to get a paid version
