Loggly is a cloud-based enterprise log management and analytics tool.
A log is the automatically produced and time-stamped documentation of events relevant to a particular system. Virtually all software applications and systems produce log files. Log data has traditionally been of interest to technical departments, like IT operations and DevOPs environments. Loggly makes log data accessible and useful to more groups within an enterprise. By facilitating the retrieval of specific data and presenting it in a user-friendly interface, the Software as a Service (SaaS) product makes log data more valuable to customer service, application development groups, management, marketing and more.
Loggly can track trends on sites and transactions, perform transaction correlation and troubleshoot servers and applications. The system can generate alerts from just about anything that makes text log files. Loggly’s features include point-and-click trend graphs, automated event parsing and search, filtering, configurable dashboards and a spreadsheet-like grid view.
Jon Gifford, Raffael Marty and Kord Campbell launched the log management tool and the company of the same name in 2009. The company is headquartered in San Francisco, California. Loggly competes with similar services like Splunk and LogStash.
