Every day, network devices and apps generate millions of lines of log data that require centralising for further analysis and management.

In order to streamline this process and alleviate the burden of sifting through millions of lines of data, it’s now considered best practice to utilize a log viewer as part of a wider centralised logging platform.

Here at Logit, we understand that being able to pinpoint critical log messages is all that may stand between your technicians and catastrophic downtime affecting your infrastructure.

Using the Logit Log viewer, you can directly analyze log content to find problematic error messages and status codes for troubleshooting your systems.

What is a log viewer?

A log viewer is a tool that streamlines the process of reading log files from servers, endpoints, applications, programming languages and cloud computing platforms.

Log viewers provide the first essential step in enabling individuals and teams to parse, transform, centralise, and filter huge log files.

Log data is output by the vast majority of software and tools powering your organisation’s infrastructure.

Beyond simply viewing your logs in Logit, our platform also provides a solution for complete centralisation, analysis, and management of logs.

Log viewing made easy with Logit

Logit’s built in log file reader and viewer forms just a small part of our wider centralised log management platform.

By offering a centralised platform, Logit.io ensures that undertaking data analysis and error resolution on critical infrastructure is more efficient, less time consuming and far more affordable to scale alongside your operations as they grow in both size and complexity. We use Filebeat to make the process of sending your logs seamless, no matter your preferred data source.

Our platform uses lightning fast NVMe SSDs, that make viewing real-time log events and querying your data between 5 to 10x faster than comparable hardware used by other log management providers.

This means you’ll get a near immediate response to your queries, allowing you to make data driven decisions faster in order to protect your infrastructure and future proof your operations.

Relevant Search and Filter

Search and filter logs fast with our powerful query language. Logit uses hosted Logstash for automatic parsing so you can easily view a wide range of log file formats including Node.js, Apache, JSON, HAProxy, Ubuntu and Solaris.

Hosted Elasticsearch makes light work of returning relevant search results and allows you to also use field names for intelligent search.

Logit’s platform also provides support for near matches, fuzzy searches, wildcards and regular expressions, utilising the best of Elasticsearch’s functionality as an extremely powerful search engine.

Visualise & Report

Logit’s Hosted Kibana makes it easy to transform your centralised logs into dashboards, reports and impressive data visualisations.

These interactive Kibana dashboards can be shared and are ideal for cross team collaboration as well as providing a command-center view of all of the most important events affecting your technology stack.

Having access to this level of reporting is a must for meeting compliance regulations, identifying market trends, observing user behaviour and presenting impressive and dynamically updating reports to key stakeholders.

Our platform also offers scheduled reporting which allows users to generate PDF, PNG and CSV reports that can be sent on a recurring basis due to ourManaged Open Distro service. Additional reporting features available include the ability to set custom headers and footers for further personalisation.

Extensive configuration guides and integrations

We understand that our users need a wide variety of access, event and error logs from their favourite tools, services and software.

As part of our managed service, our log viewer can be easily integrated with the platforms you use daily including but not limited to; Google Cloud (GCP), Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services (AWS), as well as logs generated by servers, operating systems and programming languages.

Live Tail For Real Time Log Viewing

Our live tailing feature allows you to view log events as they occur in a single real time stream for enhanced troubleshooting.

This feature also includes colour highlighting for fast pattern identification so that you don’t miss key messages in error, status code or server logs.

Live tailing can be launched through hosted Kibana, simplifying the old process where users had to open a terminal window on their device for manual tailing of log files.
