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 business 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.

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 business 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

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 business 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

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 business 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 business 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 business 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.
