Managing logs efficiently across networks, servers, operating systems and hybrid cloud environments has been a common problem for organisations globally for some time. This issue is ever increasing as new projects, tools and programming languages are used every time a business adapts to the competitive landscape and makes key changes to how they operate.

Many log management systems don’t operate with transparency, meaning that you’ll often sign up for one service and expect features that are billed additionally as add ons, whether those are license fees for open source tools, bundles or enterprise features misdescribed as being available for all users.

At Logit.io, we prioritise transparency so that our users only pay for what they use with zero monthly minimum usage fees and overage protection included as standard across all plans.

What Are Logs?

Logs are files containing messages that any tool used to power your infrastructure thinks are important to track. This can include data related to performance, security, errors, users, transactions and additionally a range of competitive log data related to business analytics.

These files can present themselves as a range of different file formats (including .txt and .log). A large amount of this data isn’t human-readable and requires external processing outside of your system for parsing, filtering and prioritising.

Some services create tens of variations of distinct log files, so you can imagine that when hundreds of services might power a business’s website, production, and dev environments that these logs can multiply uncontrollably when a simple error is encountered.

What Is Log management?

Log management software, platforms and tools are used to collect large volumes of log data and centralise, retain, visualise and monitor that data so the end-user can gain access to a single source of truth regarding the health of their on-premise, cloud and hybrid environments.

When it comes to selecting a log management solution it is important that your chosen tool covers collection, aggregation, storage, analysis, search and filter, as well as reporting, otherwise you could well miss out on vital opportunities affecting your business.

Log management is the most popular with the following professionals operating in the technology & IT space;

  • DevOps Team Leads
  • Linux Administrators
  • Infrastructure Engineers
  • Senior Software Engineers
  • Chief Technology Officers
  • Site Reliability Engineers
  • QA Engineers
  • Data Engineers

Beyond Log Management

Additionally, many other roles find logging vital including business analysts, product managers and marketing and sales for improving their data analysis performance.

Because log messages can come from a variety of different sources and present themselves in a wide range of formats, a log management system needs to be equipped to universally process logs from servers, programming languages, platforms, operating systems and cloud services.

Many of these systems use hosted Logstash (including Logit.io) to parse logs for further processing. Logstash assists in shipping, enriching and processing so that the end-user can use the data for troubleshooting and reporting within a visual dashboard.

    Why Is Working With Logs Difficult?

    The majority of log file viewers require installation on individual servers across distributed infrastructure by trained in-house staff. The functionality of these services is often limited and has little cross over capacity for use across infrastructure, container, and hybrid cloud monitoring. Need a more specific log file viewer then why not find out more about our Apache log viewer?

    Logit.io makes use of the open-source log management capabilities offered by Elasticsearch, Logstash, Kibana and Grafana , in order to save your technicians from having to trail errors across distributed servers and environments.

    While ELK by itself is free to use initially, when it comes to configuring and upgrading the software and viewing logs for larger-scale operations it can be highly difficult to maintain inline with an organisation’s growing data complexities.

    This is why using Logit.io’s hosted ELK platform gives you the best of both worlds as an enterprise-ready log management tool. We also offer seamless upgrades for ELK that you wouldn’t benefit from when building your own Elastic Stack deployment.

    Ringier testimonial

    "Shortly after deploying Logit.io, we were able to show the results and impact. The speed at which we were able to deploy the solution was phenomenal. The ELK stack was providing results from very early on.

    We can now better understand our security measures and our network. Our decisions can be made with data to back them up. We have a better understanding of the health of our systems."
