Trusted By Thousands

Logtrail allows you to analyse logs and metrics as they are written to the log file in near real-time. Identify and troubleshoot issues, visualise trends and isolate high-severity events easily. Eliminate the need to tail log files across distributed servers and devices with our centralised developer-friendly user interface.

As the leading managed ELK platform, is also home to many of the essential plugins for using the Elastic Stack, including hosted Logtrail for Kibana log viewing. Our managed ELK platform with a built-in Logtrail integration enables you to easily search, filter and define the log events that matter to your organisation as data live streams from your system infrastructure.

Note: As of version 7.11 of the Elastic Stack Logtrail is not currently available. If you wish to keep using Logtrail to tail your logs you may continue doing so on any older stacks created on version 7.10 or below of the Elastic Stack.

The Leading Kibana Live Tailer

Logtrail was introduced in 2016 for the purpose of tailing log files to provide the user with improved capabilities to view, analyse and search log data all within Kibana in a single centralised logging platform. It is a far more powerful version of the familiar tail command (tail -f) in Linux.

Logtrail can be used to tail for errors after deployment as a best practise that makes reproducing errors for debugging far less of a hassle when monitoring new code performance in production environments. Developers and IT leaders using LogTrail find it is a highly user-friendly way of presenting log events in one aggregated view. Live tailing updates every ten seconds automatically, making it ideal for near real-time log file reading.

Identify Issues Across Security System Applications

Analyse live logs in a single unified platform with’s log management and cloud monitoring platform and improve error reporting across your organisation. If you’re concerned about the activity undertaken by IPs accessing your web server, log tailing allows you to identify these problematic users fast and track their sessions.

Our Live Tailing feature even allows you to apply filters automatically in the event that you’re looking for security instances meeting specific criteria fast. Easily filter by programs, hosts and view highlighted search matches and add custom colour coding of log messages based on their field value & log level.

Search By Time, Contents and Origin

If you know the date or time on which a specific issue occurred, the Logtrail plugin for Kibana can be used to seek results from the exact time and date, allowing you to isolate instances based on when you’ve known them to occur.

The command default_time_range_in_days, can be used to limit a search to return only events that occurred within a specified time range.
