Log monitoring and management solutions are widely used in many organizations to collect, parse and extract insights from it. The derived insights are much helpful to an organization like finding root cause, decision making, alerting, reporting and so on. Many log monitoring solutions are available for this use cases and some are widely used like ELK, Splunk, appdynamics, dynatrace. In this post, I am gonna list some new tools I have found in recent days.

logz.io: In simple terms, you can call logz.io as AI integrated ELK stack. Logz.io simplifies log analysis by using predictive analytics and machine-learning algorithms to find and predict critical events in the data.

Logentries: Logentries is a leading SaaS-delivered log management and analytics service, developed to make machine-generated log data easily accessible to developers, operations, and business analytics customers. While traditional log management and analytics solutions require advanced technical skills to use, and are costly to set-up, Logentries provides an accessible alternative for managing huge amounts of data, visualizing insights that matter, and sharing that information across the business.

Loom Systems: Loom delivers an advanced AI-powered analytics platform that automatically ingests and analyzes all types of logs and metrics, learns their unique behavior over time, detects anomalies and trends, and reports these along with the root cause.

TICK: TICK consists of following components,

  • Telegraf collects time-series data from a variety of sources.
  • InfluxDB stores time-series data.
  • Chronograf visualizes and graphs the time-series data.
  • Kapacitor provides alerting and detects anomalies in time-series data.

This is well suited for time series values. To me, this sounds similar to ELK.

Matomo: Matomo is a open source and alternative solution to Google Analytics that gives you full control over your data. Matomo lets you easily collect data from websites, apps & the IoT and visualise this data and extract insights.

GoAccess: GoAccess is an interactive and real time web server log analyzer program that quickly analyze and view web server logs. It comes as an open source and runs as a command line in Unix/Linux operating systems. It provides brief and beneficial HTTP (web server) statistics report for Linux administrators on the fly.

There are some more tools which are quite popular, I am just listing it down since I have not yet explored,
