Pros: I really like their intuitive query language that works much like pipes in linux. Eg. the query "error | count()" counts all the log lines that contains the string "error". More complex queries can be constructed by chaining and combining multiple built in functions for grouping events and parsing raw data in the events.

Queries can easily be converted into widgets on a dashboard. We use their dashboarding feature for monitoring server and network health status.

We currently have ingested more than 100GB of data and most queries only takes a few seconds to complete! It's way faster than searching with ack and even faster than searching with ag/"the silver surfer" on my desktop with SSD.

Cons: Their pricing model is not well fitted for startups. If you need more than 7 days of retention or more than one user, then you need to pay.

Overall: In the beginning we tried to analyze our log files with linux commands like grep / tail and created a lot of custom scripts for doing so. This was cumbersome and error-prone.

We were thinking about setting up elasticsearch, but ended up using Humio. It was the right choice for us.

It is easy to get started. We use filebeat for ingesting most of our data, but we also make use of their ingest api for some odd cases. When the data is uploaded it is actually fun to analyze and work with the data as Humio is blazing fast and allows us to visualise our logs.

Pros: Setting up log collection with Humio is pretty easy, and once your log data is shipping to Humio, it's just a matter of digging out answers to all your questions using Humio's query language. Humio is FAST, and it's an amazing feeling to be able to get such instant results even on advanced queries in a large amount of log data. Once you've experienced Humio's speed, you don't want to go back to whatever you used before.

There is a good selection of graph tools available, and you can create nice dashboards with live data.

There's also support for alerts, but I haven't used those yet, so I don't know how well they work. Judging from the rest of the system, it's probably well-thought-out.

Cons: The GUI is not super pretty and can be a bit confusing at times, e.g. when editing graphs on a dashboard. However, once you get to know how to navigate it, it's fast and functional.

Pros: It is so incredibly fast that you can try any query that may or may not give a useful result without feeling you are wasting time. If you simply remember to log anything that may become useful information sometime in the future you can easily find it again. Additionally, Humio approach that everything is searched and you can use regular expressions over the entire event makes it incredibly powerful.

Cons: The support for structured logging is not perfect yet, so the first thing you always do is to write

| table([@timestamp, messageTemplate])

Overall: I know a lot more about my application than I did before I started using Humio. So now there are fewer errors in my application - and when there are errors they are fixed a lot faster.

Pros: Humio has changed the way we think logging. A large share of our logs are from software that we develop in-house, and we have found us tailoring our logs with Humio in mind so we can get even better dashboards and insights into our own software. Therefore we often use Humio from early development stage and all the way into production.

Integration was simple and performance jaw-dropping, even for complex queries.

One of the really powerful features are that you can create ah hoc dashboards without worrying about having the appropriate indexes etc in place.

Cons: There are some challenges on getting the layout of your dashboards right. I think that this can be improved upon.

While being intuitive, you still have to learn a new query language. this is an investment you will have to make to get the most out of the product.

Overall: Today we use Humio across the board, and are a happy customer.

Extremely powerfull log analyser that put your data at your finger tips.

Pros: Humio really give your access to your data at your finger tips.

When you figure out what you need you just grab it. Even in a tight spot

The dashboard and alerts is a life saver that usually makes us able to find and fix issues before our customers notice it.

Cons: Setting up the log streamers and parses can be a bit of a hassle to start with, not that its a big thing though.

Getting a nice output for dashboard widgets also requires some wrestling once in awhile.

Pros: You can create your very own custom dashboards, for both internal and external use. Using the functions in queries, you can customize a large variety, of useful overviews, which enables you to react faster and take action on events in your own systems.

It gives a certain comfort, and preparedness, knowing that you can rely on the data from the logs.

Cons: The server nodes is occasionally down, for less or longer time.

Resulting in time where real-time overview is "stopped" - but no logs are lost.

Pros: Querying language is better than Elasticsearch or similar engines, the team are helpful, price is great, integration easy, and queries are quick.

Pros: Search speed, and the developer-friendly query language. We switched to Humio from Elasticsearch/Kibana and the ease of use, and the very dynamic query language just makes it so much easier to dig into your logs.

Cons: We are missing some small features here and there, but the Humio team is very helpful, and listens to our requests.

Overall: Our developers are digging into their logs much more than before, setting alerts, creating dashboards. It really means the world in a self-service developer focused microservice environment.

Pros: Humio has made it easy for us to easily debug errors on our server, firstly because of the realtime dashboards and secondly from the realtime searches into our logs.

It's the query language is easy to learn and very powerful.

The support team is always ready to help.

Cons: When laying out a dashboard, it can be a bit hard to fit a lot of views into one screen, but that just requires the user to focus on the important stuff.
