"Game-changing Software Logging / Log Analytics Platform"

What do you like best?

Logz.io was the solution that enabled my very small software team to have a top-of-the-line software logging solution across multiple development areas including front end, back end, and other services, in one powerful yet easy to use platform. It has continued to surprise from day 1, enabling us to see and tie together logs from front ends to backends to allow faster iteration on issue resolution, to create powerful visualizations that give us at-a-glance operation of our platform, and to create a wide array of alerts that have simplified my life as the primary responder to my company's software operations.

Logz.io is built on the ELK stack, so there is lots of information about how to use the core logz.io functionality, but my team is too resource-constrained to deal with managing our own ELK stack. Setting up logz.io was very easy by comparison - essentially just install some daemons that forward logs from services to Logz.io. The fact that it's built on a standard stack is a huge plus for figuring out how to accomplish the more advanced tasks (e.g. advanced query syntax).

I also love live-tail to see real-time logs (especially when an issue is occurring - has been enlightening at times).

Support has been excellent in cases when issues have come up (rare) and helpful with our general questions.

What do you dislike?

I don't have anything negative to say about the company. Some of the syntax can be complex / definitely a learning process (though that's more of an ELK stack thing as not specifically logz.io), but is definitely worth taking the time to learn. If there was one thing I would pick on in the product is that you are limited in the # of records you can see from a given query, e.g. if you have a very generic query that returns lots of logs, you can't infinitely scroll those. But that's an easy problem to solve - you can make the query more focused (whether more focused to a particular facet of the query, or a time range over which the logs occurred, etc).

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

The biggest problem we have solved with logz.io is easily tying together logs across our entire stack. This has given us visibility where we were all but blind before.

Second / almost tied to that has been creating powerful alerts based on certain logs which have bought us precious time when issues have risen in the platform. We have even created some pre-emptive logs that buy us ~2 hrs to resolve a particular issue that can arise in my company's platform. The phrase "logz.io saved the day" has been used more than once.

Finally, we have created powerful dashboards that give us at-a-glance status of the operation of our services / infrastructure.

Its interface, although it is very easy to manage, is not designed to carry with large amounts of alerts since when this happens it tends to slow down which is somewhat tedious especially if you are in an emergency.

"A vital tool we use only a daily basis for log analysis"

What do you like best?

From a support perspective we use Logz.io on a daily basis for Logs Analysis

It's vital for us to be able to see the full picture across production on any potential production issues we may have. We make really good use of Dashboards to ensure we can troubleshoot any specific issues.

The Alerts feature is great and allows us to quickly act on any potential issues before they may become a bigger problem.

The search is pretty straightforward once you get use to the syntax.

Logz.io CHAT - If there's any issues just click the CHAT button within the tool and very quickly the support team will respond and be very helpful.

What do you dislike?

I can't think of any specific dislikes at this point but all features that I need are there so there's nothing not to like.

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

Helps us as a business to react faster to Production issues which is vital for any business.

"Excellent tool for production monitoring"

What do you like best?

It's a great thing that the information we need to look for is so easily filterable, and formatable depending upon the clients that we are looking for, for education management purposes. I also love that you can actually have a group conversation by just linking it with your slack account. The analytics tools are very accurate and provide great flexibility to manage and arrange your statistics, and give you regular alerts, too.

What do you dislike?

There are two things that I dislike about this: 1) if you receive a lot of messages, or are dealing with a lot of queries, the interface may become extremely slow. 2) There is only a limited number of subaccounts your institute can have, and for us that is just not enough.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are someone who's looking for a great analytics tool, then I would recommend giving this a shot.

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

We have used it to monitor the sales and get insights on the data of the marketing of our study materials for students It is great for third party integration, and is very helpful in analyzing the metrics.

"One of the best AI tool to analyse all the activities on the cloud"

What do you like best?

Logz.io is the best tool to monitor logs and to create a sustainable infrastructure on the cloud, we are using this technology to maintain our servers in well condition and to get the most out of it. As most of our servers are on Amazon AWS we are using the analysis solution of Logz.io to maintain an efficient server on the cloud. This platform is really a cool one to manage our infrastructure as it helps developers and Devops team to reduce their burden. The log analysis is also a great feature which helps the Devops team alot.

What do you dislike?

The main issue is with the pricing plan as it is very hard to buy all the products at the same time, please reduce the price so that every one can benefit. The log analysis some time hangs and consumes most of our memory so that we need to restart the server again. Please have a look on to it also.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Please make the dashboard update in real time and also make it more simple, so that the data can be easily visualized.

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

We are maintaining all our servers on the cloud and Logz.io helps us to make the most out of it. Also it helps us to manage the entire instances with much ease.

"Quick to get up and running, great UI and flexibility for APM and Logs Analysis"

What do you like best?

Cognitive And Application Insights along with the ability to investigate the data manually. Very easy to setup custom alerts for different customers based on a high degree of flexibility in alert trigger definition. Great to have all this without having to deal with the infrastructure issues associated with managing an ELK stack. Like the ability to share a read-only dashboard with a customer to provide them insight as to issues in their environment ...

The Logz.io team has been very helpful getting us up to speed, and willing to work with us even though we were in timezone requiring evening discussions.

What do you dislike?

Pricing jumps up very quickly. Making sub-accounts only part of enterprise subscription seems a bit much - pricing should be based just on volume.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Information available is only as good as the logs you provide. Make sure to get your resolution right, and make sure you know your data. Have all relevant members of your team putting out logs that will be useful to them, and then reviewing within Logz.io.

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

Great combined visibility into live operation of dozens of microservices with alerting has permitted us to head off issues prior to them becoming business problems, and improve our product based on real world operation. Significantly reduced the

"Among the best production and pre production monitoring and logging tools i use"

What do you like best?

Can help with detect and analysis flow issues in production and pre-production environment. The flow data is made accessible, easy to understand the flow and solve raised issues easily.

The search is as easy as a google search to check issues with a specific flow in the code across multiple servers or as specific as a single class. And you can use the search filter to setup alerts to detect anomalies in production in realtime.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes search behavior is not what it expected. for example search for a string auto triggers a search before adding additional filters to capture the relevant data. Also would like exception stack trace to highlight the specific project code the locate it faster.

The service as pay per quote for logz, sometime the quote fills up and there is not indication other than lack of logz, a switch over choice in case of a quote fill would be great.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

You should use it, it's a great took to use for pre production and production environments. This will quickly return the investment by reducing failure time, and catching bug before they rich production environment.

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

Monitor, understand, and logging system behavior for trouble shoots issues and understand work flows.

Easy to integrate with Slack, mail and other APIs. Search function is fast, takes a few seconds at worst.

you can visualize in graph logging behavior, to further optimize logging code, detect unusual behavior, analyze performance and metrics.

"It's a no brainer"

What do you like best?

The ability to operate an Elk stack without worrying about scaling it or maintaining it is absolutely invaluable to us. We utilize custom dashboards for support teams, the alerting functions and have integrated logz.io into nearly all of our workflows. Logz.io itself has really seemed like a partner or just another part of our team, which is great.

What do you dislike?

Composing queries takes a little bit of work, but like anything else practice makes perfect.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Cognitive insights, the log analysis function to look for security vulnerabilities and exceptions in logs is brilliant. This product is so much more than just an ELK stack. I highly recommend to any organization looking to unburden themselves from costly maintenance of infrastructure that can be so effectively outsourced and scaled for you.

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

We ingest critical monitoring metrics into logz.io and alert on those metrics into our ChatOps integrations with Logz.io

"Best support"

What do you like best?

Logz io is great tool for analyzing logs.

I guess there are many tools like logz.io but the special thing is the support.

Any time I had an issue, even when I needed help with regex expressions the support chat helped me with understanding, patience and very fast.

What do you dislike?

I wish saving data wasn't part of the payment agreement and logzio would keep my data for more than 30 day. But business is a business

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

I'm using logz.io for:

"Value-add on top of standard ELK stack, great support, agile company."

What do you like best?

Beyond the technical value-adds on top of a standard ELK stack, the Logz.io team really partners with you to provide support at all levels, including getting feedback to shape future product directions and possibilities and help through on-boarding and adoption issues within your company.

What do you dislike?

There has really only been one item that we've desired that Logz.io didn't fully achieve, that was compatibility with log4j 1.2. However, to be fair, this version has been end-of-life since 2015, we needed a small push to upgrade anyway.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Logz.io provides many value-add services on top of a standard ELK stack and is a great company to partner with. If you want to have more time to focus on business critical tasks, they provide a great service at a reasonable cost.

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

Different resources at all levels have increased visibility and transparency to all components across our application stacks. Ability to track and identify transactions and issues across disparate systems allows us to pro-actively and quickly identify & resolve incidents.

"It's an excellent product, and always improving"

What do you like best?

Logz.io fills a need that we had. Its solution is less proprietary than some others, so there's a large OSS ecosystem we can learn from and take advantage of. But mostly, we didn't want to host and ELK/Elastic cluster on our own.

The support is also great.

What do you dislike?

You do get less control than if you're hosting ELK yourself, so there are some customizations that are unavailable to us. But it's worth the trade off for us. Also, there is a bit of a learning curve, though it's as easy to use as any of the competitors.

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

We get some visibility into how our system is behaving in production, in a central location.

"Logz.io helps a lot in our daily work"

What do you like best?

It is fast and API is just excellent. We use automated tools for logs querying, so Logz.io help us found problems with our software really fast. Search is way faster than Kibana.

What do you dislike?

Almost nothing, we switched from Kibana with almost no pain (some filters functionality from Kibana is not supported, but we can live without it, as substitutes are provided)

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is fast and does help a lot, but needs some time to adjust

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

We do a lot of debugging based on Logz.io information. It helps us stay on track with all problems we may encounter. Logz.io API helps a lot in debug automation. We can use our toolset to search for common problems automatically and monitor current situation.

"Great logging tool"

What do you like best?

Filtering options and the possibility to aggregate different logging sources

What do you dislike?

The UX was a bit not clear to me at first. I got used to it, though...

Also, we've wanted to create an automatic daily report that groups the distinct errors that occurred every day and emails it - it wasn't supported in our version (I think it was possible for paid accounts but the price was too high for a small startup like ours...).

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

Tracking ERRORs, grouping logs from different servers into one place

"My experience with Logz.io"

What do you like best?

It really is a turn-key solution. As our business has grown, we hit a point where it was taking nearly half to three quarters of an FTEs time on care and feeding of our in-house ELK stack. With Logz.io there is no need to manage the ELK stack at all, the only thing we need to care about is our endpoint addresses. The Logz.io team will even handle the writing of filters/parsers and provides plenty of hand-holding and training on how best to leverage searches, dashboards, recommendations, and alerts.

What do you dislike?

Our plan is based on daily throughput - my only minor issue is very specific to our business in that we see nearly all of our traffic Monday through Friday, and almost nothing over the weekends. It would be nice to have an option to purchase based on weekly or monthly bandwidth instead of daily. That being said, this is a very minor issue.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Compared to Elasticsearch's own hosted offering, Logz.io is much more of a turn-key solution. No need to manually scale your cluster up as your needs grow, and Logz.io even takes care of writing the filters/parsers for your logs.

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

Logging of all of our application and database logs, including logs from bare-metal systems, virtualized systems, docker environments, and databases.

We no longer have to worry about the care and feeding of our ELK stack, it "just works" and scales with however much data we throw at it.

"Easy to use - Ready to go, when you are"

What do you like best?

It's easy to get started, just sign up for an account and connect your first shipper. The support is very helpful and customer friendly. Guides are provided on how to, in case of problems support is happy to help you get started.

What do you dislike?

Custom logstash filters must be applied by Logz.io staff. We build a test environment on site with custom grok filters, for some reason they were not compatible with Logz.io and took a week or two to get converted/rewritten.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

After the first meeting with Logz.io, send some log examples and describe what type of data you want to visualize, this ay they will be able to help you very easy and get started with visualizations in Kibana.

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

We are generating ~0,7GB of logs per day, even if that's not very much. It's simply too much to check in real-time. We use Logz.io to visualize the different type of logs and to trace messages to versions of our software (or specific customer systems).

"Great Product, Stellar Support"

What do you like best?

ELK is a very powerful log collection and analysis tool, but it's not always easy to configure all the bells and whistles. Logz.io takes care of all of the ELK implementation, leaving you with a simple to use powerful tool. Their support is amazing - very quick and always ready to help.

What do you dislike?

Setting up certain filters and the addition of new log types needs to be done by support. But their support is amazing and they have a very fast turnaround.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you're looking for a service like this, I think Logz.io is definitely worth your time and consideration. I really cannot say anything bad about them. The support is stellar and chat engine is built right into their webpage, making it very easy to chat with support when you're having an issue or need a question answered.

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

We are now able to do log correlation and find and resolve issues that took many hours of scraping through text logs quickly and effectively.

"Great Platform "

What do you like best?

The support is great - very professional, knowledgeable and willing to help.

Parsing and pivoting the data is easy with the support team as they do all the heavy lifting for us.

Account team is friendly, professional and will do anything to make you happy.

The SOC2 compliance is important and made us trust Logz.IO instead of the competition.

Cognitive Insights is useful for error messages and points to Stack Overflow.

Live-Tail is a new feature, very nice. Allows you to see the data stream before it's parsed.

Pre-maid dashboards are awesome.

Integration screen makes it simple to integrate with other OS's, devices and technologies.

What do you dislike?

Not able to see the parsing currently configured on the account.

Not having Private insights which I hope is in the road-map.

Alerting could be more sophisticated, for example - anomaly detection, resource starvation algorithms.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

They can do virtually anything needed.

The support staff are awesome so just engage with them and they would be happy to assist.

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

Log Management.

"Logz.io is critical for maintaining high traffic API's"

What do you like best?

I love the ability to aggregate my logs from multiple servers and to be able to search across them in seconds. I am able to get insight into which server is unhealthy or having issues without having to login to a bunch of machines.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes it takes some time for logs to show up but it isn't a huge issue.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Their support is fantastic and they are very knowledgable.

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

We are solving log aggregation and having our microservices send their log traffic to a centralized place. Then we are setting alerts on our most critical endpoints anytime we see something other than a 200 / 201 HTTP response. Then we can dig in and find out what is happening before our customers reach out to us.

"Logz.io simply works"

What do you like best?

Works fast and smooth.

The support team provides excellent service.

What do you dislike?

Minor features are absent from ELK stack

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Logz.io is a SAAS company that's actually run by people.

They are very open, have good advice and excellent customer support.

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

Using a single query (for example, a customers' ID) across multiple indices, indexes and multi-millions of logs is extremely helpful and works really fast. This gives you the ability to look for a single value across domains (analytics, application, infrastructure, etc.) and get a better view of the problem origin.

"Logz.io makes ELK both simple and possible for a small company"

What do you like best?

I know what it takes to build a reliable ELK stack. It takes time, money and expertise. Even using the Amazon ready-made elasticsearch stack costs money and still requires expertise and a learning curve.

Logz.io made it possible for me to hardly invest any time in setting up ELK and they take care of all of the maintenance and setup for me. I pay less for my monthly subscription than I would for a small elasticsearch stack in AWS and I get service and results.

What do you dislike?

I don't like getting a Ph.D on every open source software I use - Logz.io took a big one off my curriculum :-)

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Their basic monthly subscription simply beats the other options. Especially if you are a small company that likes working a like big one.

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

Log collection (draining) and audit capabilities.

"A must have for devops team"

What do you like best?

Customized alerts to be sure production is safe

Efficient of the GUI to find a problem

What do you dislike?

System of quota can be a brake. Sometimes, a mad client sen too much logs, quota is reached and we loose future logs of the day.

We have fix that by a throttle in the logpicker

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

A regular example is about payment methods. Many apps are involved. To find where is the problem, we have to find logs in many apps in a long period to understand the usercase.

"Only full-stack ELK provider on the market"

What do you like best?

Many providers of ELK expect you to host your own Logstash, which dramatically complicates usage.

Logz has the best support I've encountered in this arena, from initial proof-of-concept discussions onward. The interface is dead simple, they're ready to converse in a number of

What do you dislike?

There is some minor clunkiness around limits management. API support is only enabled at Enterprise level, instead of platform-wide. High-touch support means they get a bit antsy for response.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Talk to their support team: they do an excellent job.

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

The aim for our project was to provide a lower-cost endpoint for our company-wide log aggregation service. We are still in the early phases of adoption, but initial results are promising enough that my manager has already started the process of downsizing our contract with our current vendor.

"Excellent log-as-a-service platform."

What do you like best?

Allowing the experts @ Logz.io to manage our ELK infrastructure has freed up our engineering staff to focus our efforts on our core product. Keeping up with ELK upgrades was quite a challenge before.

What do you dislike?

Managing our daily usage (GB's) can be a challenge.

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

Logz.io is used by engineering and support teams to troubleshoot system and customer problems quickly. In addition, it has proven valuable in the engineering/product planning process to identify parts of our system that would benefit the most from improvement efforts.

"Head of Service Reliability"

What do you like best?

The combination of ElastichSearch, Kibana and Alerts make production monitoring easy since you can quickly send log, visualize and create alerts to get notified when something happened. The setup is pretty simple and the support team is very quick to answer, since they have a chat tool.

What do you dislike?

We faced an issue while ago where some information we were sending were not being properly parsed/stored in elastic search, as a consequence an exception was being raised, and stored as a normal message. Due that problem we reached our daily storage quota because the exception message as really big. I think in this cases would be better to not store anything.

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

Monitoring production environments are easy with this solution

"Great solution and great support!"

What do you like best?

We evaluated a lot of ELK stack providers before choosing Logz.io. The solution is excellent, and their documentation and support is superb.

What do you dislike?

So far, we haven't encountered anything that we dislike. It's not the cheapest hosted solution out there, but as far as we can tell it's the best value in terms of features, maturity of solution, and quality of documentation and support.

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

We used Logz.io to centralize log management for hundreds of production application servers around the world.

"ELK for Less"

What do you like best?

I get a full managed ELK Stack for less! Nice to not have to manage Elastic Search Log-stash or Kibana.

What do you dislike?

Nothing so far. The product has been better than all other competitors, even Elastic.co.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you don't want to be in the business of managing an ELK stack look no further.

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

I use Logz.io for centralized logging. Whenever we have issues its great to have logs in one place.

"Fast and easy to use"

What do you like best?

I like being able to easily query the kinds of logs I am looking for, including combinations of JSON attributes.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I highly recommend you give logz a try!

"Unpolished event logger, easy to use. Easy to setup alerts."

What do you like best?

Easy to get started, there are many code samples for how to ship logs to Logz.io. They provide a free functional service!

What do you dislike?

I feel it's a bit unpolished. The documentation is not up to date with the looks of the site. The tool requires some guess-work. Difficult to log meta data/context variables (may be because the Logz.io nlog library I used). The nlog library does not support netcore.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

There are many alternatives. If you are working with .net read about Serilog.

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

Store logs and automatic monitoring of web apps. It's great to be able to easily access and search logs for debugging purposes.

"Great for finding and alerting "

What do you like best?

We have a dashboard set up to log critical exceptions and write them to Slack. It's helped us catch a lot of problems right away and has been invaluable for troubleshooting deployments and finding problems on production before clients do.

What do you dislike?

I find the interface a little hard to use. Logz.io seems like it has a lot of powerful functionality that I haven't used because I can't figure out what tools are there.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Set up dashboards, it will make it so much easier to find the logs of interest!

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

We use Logz.io to make all our logs searchable and to notify us in case of failures.

"Great UI"

What do you like best?

Logz.io has a very intuitive user interface. I love the pattern matching in the Live Tail tab, and the search feature in the Kibana tab.

What do you dislike?

I poked around to try and find something I didn't like, but couldn't find anything. I have a relatively simple workflow, so it may be a worse experience for a power user, but I can only speculate about that.

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

At Auvik, we were spending a lot of time keeping our ELK server up and running, and logz.io let us put that time to better use focusing on our product.

What do you like best?

Logz.io has a simple interface and powerful performance.

They bring top of the line AI and Monitoring capabilities to the logs pillar.

What do you dislike?

Their dashboard system is not as great as other products out there

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's all the same Kibana, just that Logz.io do it better and more stable.

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

Monitoring and logs aggregation have become much easier. It allows us to work faster as it's simple enough for self serving to anyone.

"Great Product, excellent Customer Success."

What do you like best?

My team does not need to stand up or maintain an ELK stack, which is a lot of work.

What do you dislike?

Would be nice to have more pricing tiers, usually the difference between them is substantial.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Make use of their on-boarding call. We took a long time to use it and it is very useful. They will even help write log parsers for you! For free!

"Fast and professional service"

What do you like best?

Logz.io helped us with gathering out logs in one place with a sense of professionalism and the same time being able to respond fast to our challenges.

What do you dislike?

The "Tail" feature was quite promising but unusable in the begging. Based on our feedback and other customers, I see that there is a great improvement.

Gathering feedback from our containerized application in a timely manner to analyze and define possible improvements.

"Major fail"

What do you like best?

I didn't like anything, the customer support didn't think its worth the effort to help me with my very straight forward configuration.

What do you dislike?

They're examples of how to setup logs collection doesn't cover very basic configuration and a lot of guessing work is needed. I'm sure it would have taken someone on their side just 5 minutes to prepare an example. Competing products where way easier to set up.

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

Nothing, I was going to use them but gave up because of their customer support.

"The CloudFoundry log management I was looking for..."

What do you like best?

The support given by the Logz.io guys is just great!

I was looking for a logmanagment which supports CloudFoundry all over and tried many of them, but none has really satisfied my needs.

When I contacted Logz.io the first time, there was no CloudFoundry support on there platform either, but together we established a working configuration in no time and now CloudFoundry is officially supported in the way I wanted it. And because they use Elasticsearch and Kibana, we where able to leverage our knowledge.

ELK apps are a great addition too, but unfortunate there are none for CloudFoundry yet...

What do you dislike?

It would be great If I could define additional parsing rules my self (e.g. extract app specifics), but on the other hand, as I sad: the support is great!

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

Logz.io provides access to our logs and allows us to use the data for usage analyzes from within Kibana.

What do you dislike?

Interface is sometimes intuitive. focusing on single customer, filtering and trying to slice and dice is sometimes puzzling.

"Great hosted ELK service!"

What do you like best?

I don't have to run infrastructure! We've been pushing logs over to logz.io from Kubernetes for a while now and everything just works, I almost never need to think about logging which is ideal.

What do you dislike?

Kibana constantly confuses our developers for some reason.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Developer training will be required to use Kibana properly, other than that no real advice. Use subaccounts to separate out your prod vs non-prod if you can.

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

Primarily compliance requirements as well as digging into problems.
