Functions / Capabilities
Generate actionable notification alerts on just about anything...i.e. log content, log size, log growth, frequency of updates, anomalies in log update times and various other metrics.
Get valuable insights on how your application, database, system or network is performing. Run very simple queries to show percentage increases or drops in various monitored metrics...i.e. number of error patterns for a particular application over the last month, or compare hourly, daily, weekly. Make accurate predictions using analysis of historical data.
Automatically spring up various graphical representations of consolidated (or isolated) log activities in your environment. Aggregate multiple different log file metrics into a single screen so you can monitor them at a glance, identify anomalies with ease, avoid having to run several incantations of confusing commands.
Create color-coded reports on the statuses of past log monitoring checks, view hour to hour, day to day and week to week comparison of log data, identify unusual trends.
Suppose you wanted to run a command or script when a pattern is found in one of your logs? How would you do that? This functionality allows users to monitor specific patterns in log files and to also set a command or script to run when the specified patterns are found...or NOT Found! Yes, it can be set to go to work in either scenario.
There are several monitoring agents out there that can be utilized to monitor logs on remote machines. Most of these agents are expensive. But some are free. If you're not aware of, or are not using any agent, we'll provide you with one...for free. This agent will allow you to monitor as many logs as you want on as many hosts as you have access to.
Here at logrobot.com, we believe log monitoring does not have to be complicated and we've gone out of our way to ensure that isn't.
The LoGrobot tool was built to keep things simple and to address the direct needs of the everyday unix user. With just a simple one-liner command, you can do anything you want; monitor log content, create reports, graph any log file metric (size, update times, growth, error patterns, new entries...etc), perform automated analysis and comparison of current data to previous data, auto isolate unusual trends, auto detect log type, monitor directories and directories of logs, get a feel for how well your applications, databases, networks and systems are performing, all in just a glance!
Sometimes, it just isn't enough to tail a log file with a "tail -whatever-number". There are times when you may want to be very specific in the number of lines from a log to grab. This feature allows users to utilize timeframes when specifying how far back in a log file they want to look. For example, show me all entries written to this log within the last 2 hours. You'll get precisely that!
Although LoGrobot was originally built to monitor log content, now, after so many different requests from different users, it does far more than that. It can monitor all logs in a directory, allow users to specify which logs to include or exclude, monitors log size, log growth, log time stamp, gives users the option to specify how many entries from logs are shown in alerts when thresholds are breached...and much, much more!
Get FREE 24/7 technical support in addition to an abundance of real world examples of how to do exactly what you're trying to do. Avoid having to take classes just to use a log monitoring tool, or spend an exorbitant amount of time scouring through lengthy confusing documentations. We will walk you through whatever process or procedure you need help with!
How do you wish to monitor your log files? No matter how unique your situation is, if you can describe it, LoGrobot will do it for you. Here are just some of the many tasks you can perform with LoGrobot;
(1). Monitor log content for the presense of known or unknown errors
(2). Monitor log content and alert if an expected pattern is NOT found in it
(3). Monitor the frequency of user account loggings (without having to know or specify any user name)
(4). Monitor and alert only if a value of a specific column in a log file breaches user-defined thresholds
(5). Alert on anomalies that could indicate an unhealthy system, an unstable application or hack attempts
(6). Watch for a specific string and when found, show X amount of lines that came BEFORE & AFTER the string.
(7). Monitor multiple patterns, multiple log files with just a simple one liner - no convoluted config files!
Sometimes it helps to be able visualize numerical values in an easy to read color-coded report. LoGrobot has a reporting feature that allows users to specify a range of dates for which they'd like to generate a report.
Users can easily create reports on metrics received for a log file within the last X amount of time relative to the current date the report was ran (.i.e. 4 hours ago till now).
Users can also generate reports on the statuses of log checks between specific dates (.i.e. April 12, 14:30 to April 12, 16:05).
To view graphical representations of all logging activities in your environment, you have options.
You can utilize our automated script to install graphite/grafana on a dedicated server in your network.
Or, you can send your log file metrics to us and we'll graph them for you. Don't worry, there are no complicated configurations for you to worry about. No system configs for you to tinker with.
All you have to do is add the graphing server IP (which we'll give you) to each log check you wish to have graphs generated for and that's about it.
Applications, databases, systems and network devices all provide a wealth of information in their respective log files. Making sense of this massive body of data is where a lot of people often find themselves struggling.
LoGrobot offers users the ability to visualize how the latest data of an application, database, system or network device compares to data received in the past hours, days, weeks or months. And this information can be used to either generate valid notification alerts or confidently make business decisions.
LoGrobot can be downloaded either through a subscription based plan or a one time payment. If you choose the subscription method, your paypal account or credit card will be automatically billed every month, quarter or year. If you pay by credit card a bill will be sent directly from us, or if you use PayPal it will be sent by them. You can list all payments and print invoices under Account -> Billing.
You may also obtain LoGrobot using a check, money order, wire or bank transfer. Due to the extra processing overhead involved we only accept yearly payments or one time payments with these methods.

Why LoGrobot? - I am currently running logrobot across many log files (basically the same process but for different users). It will then tally each logfile and output to a single log for Zabbix to monitor. I did not want to set up a check for each and every log file on a server. I also felt with logrobot, I can do more customizations when dealing with false alarms, etc.- Zivago, Vice President - FlyData
We are using logrobot to monitor production logs, and we're very confident support is available whenever needed. Currently, logrobot is doing everything we need it to do namely, searching log files and reporting to Nagios if a string is found. I'm glad this tool works well with Nagios and integrates well with our existing monitoring system.
I appreciate your prompt response to email. Your customer service is 5 stars in my book!
