“It easy to use both as admin and a simple user. support is always attentive to problem and my need”

Overallthis 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
Pros1. 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
Cons1. 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).

“Good , easy to add/configure and parse the logs using the default log format and log type.”

ProsEasy 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.
ConsThe 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.

“Log data management quick and efficient.”

ProsLog management can be an exhausting job sometimes, especially when you have dozens of servers located on different data centers and as we all know Time is precious... With Xpolog, log management became an easy task to accomplish, The ease of deployment saved us work time and centerelizing all logs to one server made work more productive. the simplicity of the user interface visualization allows our less experienced IT to search and monitor logs without any trouble. In short Xpolog
ConsToo bad they don't have a live demo on their site. The 5 days retention on the free plan was too short for our testing time..

“Xpolog is great”

ProsXpolog is easy to use, there are many pre-defined apps that help you with your log analysis for many OSs,DB and more. The support team is response quickly, technical and helpful - which lead to resolving issues super quick.
ConsIn some versions there are cosmetic bugs that the team are working to resolve.

“Probably the best log analysis tool”

OverallSaved time, reduce time to resolution of production issues, found issues before they became major problems
Pros1. 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!
ConsThe 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.

“Good tool when it comes to analyzing multiple log files. ”

OverallComplex issue of monitoring multiple files for errors, has helped our developers identify and fix them in time.
ProsThis 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.
ConsI felt not so user friendly console when it comes to configuring search texts. But I believe this is fixed in the latest version 7.

“A good tool, once you get the hang of it.”

ProsI like features, especially the ability to defining your log format in a pretty extensive way, there is almost no chance you can't define the format you want.
ConsIt took me a while to figure out how to get the logging app up and running. With all the bells and wistle, it would be nice it had a mode that would allow for simple start-up and setup (for developers for example) that has one app and take one input (kinda like seq logging).
