Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
Real-time UDP/GELF logging and full text-based searching.UDP is a fast and lightweight protocol, perfect for sending large volumes of logs with minimal overhead.Storing logs in Elasticsearch means log retrieval is extremely fast, and full text search is available by default.We run a containerized microservices environment. Being able to set up streams and search for errors and anomalies across hundreds of containers is why a log aggregation platform like Graylog is valuable to us.Allowing us to set up alerts and integrate with platforms we already use, such as Slack and OpsGenie to alert users of these errors proactively, is also a very useful feature.It is used as a log manager/SIEM. It provides visibility into the infrastructure and security related events.The build is stable and requires little maintenance, even compared to some extremely expensive products.We have scaled from a single machine installation (a VM with a Graylog + ES + MongoDB) to (2 Graylog + 2 ES + 3 MongoDB). This was done smoothly with a minimal impact on logging.

Flexible architecture: You can extend the system and its capacity by attaching another cluster pair.With this tool it is interesting to show the info to the client and explain where the traffic is.It's given us the ability to create various real-time network performance reports and distribute them to any colleague who can access these reports immediately.The automation feature is good because if your CMDB is OK and it is already in sync, then the automation part is good to go.Scalability. I have never had to worry about how to handle really big environments.The monitoring of the network is very customizable. That is its unique feature.

Cons
More complex visualizations and the ability to execute custom Elasticsearch queries would be great.With technical support, you are on your own without an enterprise license.Elasticsearch recommendations for tuning could be better. Graylog doesn't have direct support for running the system inside of Kubernetes, so it can be challenging to fill in the gaps and set up containers in a way that is both performant and stable.We ran into problems with Elasticsearch throwing a circuit-breaking exception due to field data size being too large. It turned out that the heap size directly impacted this size in a high-throughput environment, causing unexplained instability in Graylog. We were able to troubleshoot on the Elasticsearch size, but we should have been able to reference some minimum requirements for Graylog to know that our settings weren't sufficient.Since container orchestration systems are popular and Graylog fits the niche well, perhaps they could officially support running in docker containers on Kubernetes as a StatefulSet as a use case. That way, the declarative nature of Kubernetes config files would document their best case deployment scenario-Dashboards, stream alerts and parsing could be improved.Over six months, I had two similar issues where searches were performed on field "messages". It exhausted all the memory of the ES node causing an ES crash and a Graylog halt.There should be some user groups and an auto sign-in feature.​

SevOne should work with the graphs legend functionality.The method of searching for SIP and the way to create the groups.Software upgrades can be tricky is not easy.There is no service mode setup in this monitoring tool if you want to snooze alerts for any specific amount of time, to account for any activity change or major incident.The GUI: both the dashboard/user view and the admin tool.User-friendly, multi-tenancy.

Pricing and Cost Advice
​You get a lot out-of-the-box with the non-enterprise version, so give it a try first.Consider Enterprise support if you have atypical needs or setup requirements.​If you want something that works and do not have the money for Splunk or QRadar, take Graylog.​​I am using a community edition. I have not looked at the enterprise offering from Graylog.Having paid official support is wise for projects.

Prices per license are not huge, but they exist.It is inexpensive compared to other monitoring tools.Choose a SevOne partner who can provide SevOne as a service and can deliver professional services and maintenance.Have a bank of licenses, because it is about the number of objects (RAM, ports, CPU, etc.).
