What do you like best?

We use Graylog to view all logs for system across different environment (dev, test, pre-prod, prod). It gives us power to debug all good or bad event occurred in systems. We use this tool to backup our logs so if needed to review them, we can go back as far needed. It allows us to collect our data so easily and fast approach.

Its free version is extraordinary awesome to use.

Log searching is quick if you use it well. Graylog does good job of managing Elasticsearch index. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

If you do not know how to play around its setup then it would be tricky. Some documentation and tutorial video would be helpful.

Graylog can't read from syslog files, so you need to send your messages to Graylog directly. In terms of management, it's not friendly enough on the dashboard front. Reporting functionality is quite messy and poor.

sometimes you mostly ended with lots of data of no use if it is not properly configured as per your system.

Searching of logs sometimes needed query as per information needed which is not easy to write. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Every one should use in 1st phase. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Main best benefit of using it is analyze your all logs from multiple environment or resource at one place with minimal effort.

I mostly use Graylog to solve finding logs from multiple environment with great GUI tool, where we can search logs based on multiple text lookup. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I like the amazing flexibility which it offers for managing open source log. It is used rightly for aggregating and parsing logs that can be latterly analyzed in order to get most relevant information. I would say this is the best ever replacement for Splunk. It is used to detach threats by doing deep analysis. I appreciate and love the way it deals with cyber-crime using logs as well as traces of intrusion. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The only drawback I hardly found yet is that its learning curve is quite steep as compare to other software due to which users must have little bit technical knowledge otherwise after getting familiar with it, soon you will have complete command on it then it is very much enjoyable. Other then this I am always a satisfied user of Graylog. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is the most rapid way of parsing data than any other. It is the most suitable tool and strongly suggested to enterprisers. Its speed and quality is mind blowing. It will be highly beneficial and u will get hundreds of benefits after connecting it. Moreover you need have to purchase any sort of license. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The most astonishing thing in it is that it used to handle huge amounts of data without any complication. The most worth mentioning feature of Graylog is its ability of summarizing and aggregating our data into attractive dashboards or depictions. It is incredibly easy to learn how different teams work together in a particular organization such as operating systems, data bases and several equipment. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

1) Graylog is a free, open-source software. Awesome Visualisation of Logs (e.g Http response, login customer or micro service hit of our DB)

2) Real time logging.

3) Integration with Slack & AWS makes our monitoring more better.

4) Its trigger actions or notifications immediately inform us when something needs attention, so we constantly keep abreast of the system performance.

5) With error stack traces received from Graylog, engineers understand the context of any issues in the source code. This saves time and efforts for debugging/troubleshooting and bug fixing.

6) The tool has a powerful search syntax, so it is easy to find exactly what you are looking for, even if you have terabytes of log data. The search queries could be saved.

7) Graylog offers an archiving functionality, so everything older than 30 days could be stored on slow storage and re-imported into Graylog when such a need appears (for example, when the dev team need to investigate a certain event from the past). Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

1) its enterprise support is too costly. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Graylog is a different infrastructure system that allows us to reduce the database and I must specify that I love it because it makes life so much easier work is released because the database is already in digital mode and is easier use it, allowing me to count with tools to reduce and erase duplicates and to add employees to maintain an order and make payroll payments in an orderly and fair way, very happy with this software for the ease of handling.

Some problems occur within the system such as screen freezing or the panel, at other times it can be difficult to upload the data manually when the system is not configured completely well. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is a software that works very well in the area of infrastructure can be compared with other services such as azure how well you handle data information all at the cloud level, however it can stand out at certain points because it is a different system more attractive and more complete tools which allows to give better results, I recommend it because it saves time and money. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

certain problems within the company such as eliminating duplicate data what Graylog assumes and does an effective job is certain certain points of the organization since it is possible to add to this base in the cloud to be able to add employees and make daily and fair payments, in addition to audits and analysis, and the entire system within the cloud and a web system.

What do you like best?

Graylog is very simple to install on servers. Their documentation [https://docs.graylog.org/en/3.2/] covers all technical aspects from prerequisites to install gray log to maintaining it will help a technical guy to understand graylog mechanism easily. Graylog unlike ELK stack abstracts the technical difficulties that a user might face during installation.

Graylog comes with a UI which is very user friendly and easy to understand. You can create multiple input channels from various input channels and configurations in graylog UI is pretty straight forward. you can simply browse over different input channels to view respective logs.

Graylog supports GELF format using which you can send your log to your graylog server using graylog API url. They provide many attributes that you can use to post in your graylog API call. GELF format makes it very easy to filter logs on the UI and increases productivity.

Graylog UI supports GQL which is like another query language that you can use for fast retrieval of logs.

Graylog supports ACL and have different settings which you can use to increase performance of your graylog server's input and output process.

Graylog community is very active in resolving user queries. You can expect a response within minutes of posting your question on their community portal [ https://community.graylog.org/ ].

Graylog is opensource and hence its free and can easily be used as a solution to any companies distributed log environment.

You can share a permalink of a log with other team members which is very useful.

Another noticeable feature is its ability to get integrated with other application which can be usefuk if your planning for alert monitoring.

Graylog UI supports historic filtering of your data meaning you can use to filter logs based on a certain time period.

Graylog shows you the histogram for the number of log inputs that have been collected against time period which is useful in graylog performance monitoring.

You can increase the buffer window in graylog setting so that graylog processes logs collected from sidecars pretty fast.

It have a good community support and there are various libraries in different programming languages that adheres to GEL format which makes a hussle free task for a developer to implement those libraries in the application and throw logs to the graylog server.

Gray log performs better in clustered environment Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Graylog is not free when it comes to maintenance of your logs. They have made their log archiving feature a paid one which is fair in scenarios where you dont have the respective personnel to do the same.

Performance of graylog is affected with the number of sidecars being used to push logs to graylog.

So graylog requires a good storage space and CPU cores in such scenarios. Graylog stack becomes heavy as your log size increases.

Due to graylogs heavy stack, it can become very difficult to get the live logs.

If planning to implement the GELF approach of the graylog than site uptime of a graylog server can be an issue. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Consider using it if you have your own in house dedicated team for it. If you need a simple UI and have a team that will use to access logs concurrently, graylog can be the one you are looking for.

If you are looking for a free, easy to use centralized log manager than graylog stands out for you.

Don't use graylog if you have log size >1TB /day because in such scenarios it would be difficult to maintain graylog, you would require a skilled team to handle such use scenarios.

Graylog can be your choice if you are looking for a tool for log anaysis, alert setting and monitoring. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Before graylog our support team used to login to kth server to fetch its respective logs which was very time consuming. With environment of distributed logs it becomes difficult to increase response time of your team.

Graylog addressed this with centralized log management solution after which our team is required to login to graylog UI and access logs of all the servers from one place thus increasing response time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Graylog is a system that allows us to register in an orderly and automatic way the database of the company and we like it because it works in a very easy way and its use can be very simple, since adding the data base and offering you a Order without duplicate is perfect, besides this process is done automatically, it is only to add the database and start monitoring each one to offer a system where you can obtain an order of the entire organization, whether employees, audits or The payment of the systems used in the company, each one is introduced and kept safe, would be a more complex but easy to handle data base.

Due to its very complete and intuitive system and such an easy way of using it, it makes it recommended because they work very well and offers good results, it stands out very well to other software for being attractive and updated and freeing up the data base by digitizing it and This way you have a greater reach, although you can compare Graylog offers different tests, in my opinion I recommend it.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Previously in this company we made the database systems manually which for us is a bit complicated because we would have to review the system several times to avoid any duplication of both personnel and some system or any type of software within our company, in this way Graylog was the perfect solution since it monitors each of the main needs of maintaining an order in the database, in order to maintain an order, in addition to achieving audits with its system offering concrete data of the company's finances what is for us fascinating and very complete.

What do you like best?

Graylog is a platform that provides a very unified and centralized system of messages from different sources such as: operating systems, application servers, information system, among many others. Graylog is a software that provides alerts and log history search systems using ElasticSearch as the main index database, together with atSistemas. With these tools you can discover how to implement different solutions in complex environments. Overall Graylog is a platform that is designed to capture, store, search and analyze logs in real time, the interface provided by Graylog has a unique design and is highly functional at all times, in all the time I have been working with Graylog I can say with confidence that this platform provides a unique and high quality system that allows its users to implement different functions with great performance. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

One of the weaknesses of Graylog is that it is a software that has a long learning curve, which I believe is not for beginners to work with, as it can be very difficult to use this platform correctly if the person does not have a good knowledge of all the functions that Graylog provides. Another disadvantage that Graylog has is that its support team is very slow to help people solve bugs or problems with the platform, and in general I think this is a factor that should be taken into account to improve, so that your users do not have a bad experience with Graylog's support team. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I have been working with Graylog for several years and in general it has been a very useful and high quality platform, based on all the experience I have working with this platform I can certify and recommend that Graylog is a software of high functionality and optimal performance, its system in general allows its users to fulfill many tasks with great performance, in conclusion I believe that Graylog's service is unbeatable and its price is really accessible, since it is very economical. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Graylog is our main tool for data analysis of all operating systems and different servers that make up all the systems of our company, in general Graylog has been a very important tool for us, since it has allowed us to simplify our work significantly and its operation has always been very accurate, really Graylog provides a unique service of high quality.

What do you dislike?

The operation of Graylog is really precise and in general there are very few times when Graylog has shown to have imperfections in its functionality, personally I consider that one of the improvements that this platform needs is its support team, because it is very slow to help its users to solve different kinds of problems that the platform presents and sometimes this can cause great loss of time to the people who depend on Graylog, but I really don't consider it a worrying factor because this usually happens very rarely.

What do you like best?

Graylog is a truly unparalleled tool, because it is perfect for summarizing, aggregating data into simple dashboards and visual representations, which is a function we find very helpful in fulfilling various functions in our organization. Although it is a code logging management solution tool, Graylog has proven to be a really flexible and agile software to work with, which is an advantage when it comes to analyzing data in a fast and intuitive way. One of the features that caught my attention when we started using this platform is that this software keeps all error logs from our internal applications in one place, which allows us to make constant improvements so that those bad scenarios are not repeated in the different applications. Overall, Graylog is a platform that has many positive aspects to offer to its users, actually Graylog is one of our favorite platforms that we use in our organization because it helps us solve a lot of problems. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

In general, Graylog has never had any irregularities in its operation, it really always allows us to fulfill various tasks with great performance. However, one of the features that developers should consider adding to their package for first time users is a manual or tutorial of all the functions that this platform brings and how to use it correctly, since I personally consider that this platform brings a very steep learning curve and for inexperienced people it can be difficult to work efficiently with Graylog.

What do you like best?

Grazie a questo sistema di management dei log centralizzato Riesco a installare con semplicità e immediatezza In ambienti di produzione appartenenti a clienti che vietano espressamente per policy di security interne installazione di software terzi sulle loro macchine virtuali, un workaround Per il monitoraggio proattivo di triggers e problemi tramite il potente parsing dei log attraverso strumenti di ricerca Linux based come le espressioni regolari di egrep.

È necessario esporre più porte per poter ricevere dati e log da più macchine virtuali, questo crea confusione in ambienti cluster Con centinaia se non migliaia di nodi da monitorare.

Andrebbe rivista la comunicazione dei syslog magari tramite un proxy syslog esposto su una porta TCP o UDP univoca. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

La configurazione iniziale non è delle più semplici in quanto il sistema, seppur distribuito in un unico pacchetto Java richiede il tuning e la configurazioni di input per consentire ad ElasticSearch di ricevere dati e memorizzarli correttamente. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

È necessario configurare in maniera adeguata le policy di salvataggio e indicizzazione dei log onde evitare di trovarli ripetuti su più indici e allungare così i tempi di storage e di ricerca.

Consiglio di leggere la knowledge base ufficiale sul sito e sul forum in quanto contiene tutte le guide le strategie necessarie per iniziare con una configurazione stabile. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
