Check logs for Expected events

Monitor log files for expected record of events - send alert notifications if those events are not found in the latest scan of all new entries added to the log!

Show offending log entries

Detailed Log Check Notifications - Whenever a log check detects entries from a monitored log containing the patterns you tell it to watch for, it will show all those lines in the alert notification it sends out to you. If you wish to only see the actual lines from the log that triggered the alert, add 'noextraoutput' to the logXray command.

Show less information in alerts

Whenever a log check detects an issue in a monitored log, do NOT show the offending entries in alerts.

Monitor Multiple Patterns

Use one check to monitor multiple patterns within a log file - set thresholds per pattern. Get alert notifications on a particular pattern if and only if the number of entries found containing that pattern is greater than the thresholds you specified.

Log Monitoring Alerts

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!

Create Color-Coded Spreadsheets on Log Data

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).

Visualize all Logging Activities in your Environment

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.

Analyzing Log Data

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.

Remote Monitoring Agent

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.

Advanced Tailing of Logs

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!

Robust, Versatile, Customizable

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!
