Pros: 1. the software is always in constant change to improve and to add now features.
2. as an admin it is very easy to add single log or to ran a scan with a specific template.
3. monitoring function new changes
4. not need to be an expert to use the system
5. the aggregation function is very useful
6. Allow to customize each log using Regexp

Cons: 1. there is not enough automation, and the current one does not supports the new features that were added.
2. when collecting data from remote agent there is no indication of the server which the log was collected from you can see only the agent name\IP as the source.
3. in version 7 the syslog listener is part of the cluster, which it is collecting and indexing data as in version 6 it only listen which allowed me to install simple server (8 on 8 CPU\RAM)
4. adding monitoring version 7 uses a lot of unnecessary clicks comparing the old version for example in SNMP each OID needs to be save separately
5. on rush hours the software run slow sometimes (the data exists but not index).

Overall: this tool is very helpful in trouble shooting problems in production by searching the application data, which is saved in the Xpolog.
also cross applications trouble shooting, different systems writes to the Xpolog and in one interface i can access the data
is one of our regulatory reports engine.
improving development - our dev teams using xpolog API to get daily exceptions report and then adding to their pipe line fixes according to the report data

Pros: Easy to add/configure and parse the logs based on default log format and log type.

Its was easy to create a dashboard based on the log type and the application.

Filter option is useful on dashboard to view the results based on the server,and the application group.

The UI looks good compared to the previous version of XpoLog.

Dashboard configurations based on log type is a good feature to have. The reports of the application logs, access logs was helpful for us to identify the issues faced. It also help us to identify the suspicious user behavior on logs and trigger an alert.

The system alerts is a usual feature to notify the admin in case of usual log pattern activity during log collection.

Cons: The XpoLog on-prem instance had performance issue when we configured dashboard for apache log type

It would be nice if we could have an option other than email alert for monitoring feature on XpoLog . We could use this feature to call an action/api on the custom application in case a know malicious attack is identified from application access logs, like we could call an action/api to block/ban the user account , so that the attack could be avoided.

Pros: I liked the gui version with all the pictorial features and easy to navigate.One click gives all the information below instead of getting into the log or monitor in detail.

Cons: Search result are not highlighted with editing option. We have to scroll to the end or search to see the hightlighted content.

Overall: It is pretty good than the old version

Probably the best log analysis tool

Pros: 1. Easy to see transactions across servers. No more logging in to multiple servers.
2. Helped us become SOX compliance as developers don't need to login to production machines any more.
3. Easy to add new logs and servers using templates, and API that worked well with our automation.
4. Great support team!

Cons: The UI of the log viewer seems old, probably because of the usage of console fonts. Not sure if it is by design, but they said they are going to do a face lift in this area.

Overall: Saved time, reduce time to resolution of production issues, found issues before they became major problems

Pros: This is the best one in the market as of now. far better then the open source software which has log of bugs and no support.
