It provides us with new insights in our data.

Pros

Logz.io is easy to set up. Analyzing logs and creating reports is quick and easy and provides us with new insights in our data. Support and documentation are also excellent.

Cons

It is a bit pricey for smaller companies. We have a retention time of 14 days, but this is barely enough. For new users, it may take some time to get started.

Can help detect and solve production issues

Pros

All logging information is passed to logz IO, is easily searchable, filterable and easy to format to our organisations needs. Also slack integration is pretty easy.
Search is fast and takes a seconds at worst, less than a second a most times.
After IDE this is the tool i used the most.

Cons

Sometimes the search doesn't behave as expected. for instance search for a string triggers too much information, and there is a need to filter by fields first and than do the search.
Also would help when searching for exception, if the tool can highlight the code base specific lines in stack flow, but it's easily searchable.

Pros

Software just works making it very quick to get up and running to see insights in your data. The team is adding features on a regular basis, adding value to the product. Integration with third-party systems is also great - we use PagerDuty and Slack integration.

Dashboards are a great feature where we configure our important metrics to see at a glance how things are going - also makes it easy to on-board technical personnel as you can show them how all aspects of the application are working (as long as you are capturing the correct metrics).

The ability to share a specific view with a client is a great feature - let's your customer see what is happening with their specific services / apps.

Cons

Limitations on sub-account numbers - this is an artificial limit - make data volumes the one factor around costings.

It was easy to set up. The Logz.io specific features in the UI are very useful. The many different log shipping methods include great documentation.

Cons

Kibana can be overwhelming to new users. It does require some getting used to. This isn't really the fault of Logz.io though.

Business information on customer trends in data, find common error messages and identify specific services that need improvement

Pros

Great for analysis of trends in log output, searching for that needle in a haystack, and triggering alerts

Cons

For developers, sometimes the interface feels like it gets in the way of the raw logfiles. Some overhead required to separate data into fields and identify numeric content for statistical charting. Occasional weird bugs in new features.

Logz.io provides a familiar interface for anyone using ELK. It scales to meed our demand, even on our busiest days. I'd need to hire a team to maintain an infrastructure this size.

Cons

Search UI has unique behavior that requires a small amount of familiarization. The use of spaces and special characters adds complexity.

This is a much better solution that we had previously. It meets our PCI requirements, as well as all of our application requirements.

Pros

It is scalable and flexible. Support is magnificent. It meets every one of our needs, including SAML access controls. We love the integration with S3.

Centralized logging solution that works. Its never down and allows me to do everything I need to do with logs.

Pros

It's just well done, and keeps getting better. Easy to find what I need and zooming in quickly to the root of the issue.

Cons

The query language is very strict could be simplified, but even that is a benefit because of compliance with ELK.

With Logzio we have had a great benefit in relation to the metrics that are generated through the logs collected from our servers.
Through the generated graphs we can measure the efficiency of our services

Pros

Easy to use, intuitive tool helps us and is very useful in what we propose to do.
We're reasonably satisfied

Cons

Do not support the Portuguese language of Brazil, this is a factor that we value greatly and could be improved.

Logz.io really helped ensure that our ELK stack was scaling to meet our needs. It took the guess work out of capacity planning as well.

Pros

I don't have to worry about scaling my ELK stack, those considerations are handled for us. Additionally the support is terrific, very responsive and the API documentation is outstanding.

Enables ingestion, indexing and search capabilities for all your logs in a big cloud-based application.

Pros

I am amazed about the ingestion and search capabilities. Integration with applications and specially with docker is a breeze.

Cons

Subscription plans should be more progressive, sometimes if the maximum event ingestion is met, the events are lost. Under those circumstances, the possibility to delete uninteresting events would help.

A single clear application for all our logz along with customized dashboard and analytics

Pros

Most complete centralized logging solution out there for a very reasonable price. Is both simple to set up, but has a lot of ways to do complex checking

Cons

The user interface is a bit complex until you get the hang of it. You need some knowledge of regex or GROKing to set up log parsing. However, the customer support is great in helping you set this up.

Affordable, simple to use, RBAC for internal users / staff viewing logs.

Pros

Setting up my logs to be sent to Logz was a breeze - we're using Docker, filebeat, and rsyslog. Literally it just works. The price is good and the support, the few times I've ever had to use it (for simple questions), has been great.

Insights has caught so many bugs in my product that it's paid for itself.

Cons

Some things like SAML requires manual integration on the Logz side. This isn't usually a bad thing because it's a once off but I'd like to be able to do certain things without involving support.

After having to setup ELK by ourselves, using it as a service is much more efficient albeit a bit expensive.

Pros

The ELK is fully featured and well documented. This way it is easy to find your way around. We also like the tokenized access we can give our customers.

Cons

Pricing : huge gap between 1GB/day and 5GB/day.
Sometimes UI takes up to 10 seconds to load.
Geo location data is old and inaccurate. Even after 4 or 5 requests it has not been improved.
