Cons
I would like to see a date and time in the Graylog Grok patterns so that I can save time when searching for a log. I like how the streams and the search query work, but adding a date and time will allow me to pull out a log in a milli-second.

The pricing of the solution could be improved.The solution should be more user-friendly. The user interface and dashboard could be simplified.The dashboard needs to be improved because this is what I need to monitor my infrastructure.It's great for VMware, but it would be good if they had third-party logins.I don't use the solution on a day to day basis, so I'm not sure what specifically can be improved.I think that it should be able to integrate with other third-party backup and recovery solutions, more that it does now.The solution isn't user-friendly for admins.Documentation is lacking, including some guide as to how to use the expressions. It is not clear how to look for a log, for example. Some examples in the documentation might be helpful. I think that VMware had good documentation, but it's no longer hosted. The documentation is not as easy to understand as it was before.
