Pricing Advice

What users are saying about Logz.io pricing:
  • "You pay for what you need, and that is a good model. They are also quite happy to talk to you about your uses and your use case. They will even go as far as suggesting things that you don't need to do in order to save you money. At one point, I was quite surprised at how cheap it could be if we wanted it to be or how much they would help us manage our costs."
  • "At the time it was set up, we thought Logz.io was very reasonable for what we were getting in terms of how much time and hosting costs it was saving us, because you don't have to run the servers for it anymore."

Improved our troubleshooting by giving us visibility into what's going on

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case is to monitor the live game observability. When our game is live, we can see how the servers are performing and how players are connecting around the world. Generally, we just monitor everything to make sure the stability is running smoothly. The secondary use of it is when we have things we want to dig deeper into, then we have a backup of the logging system. We can jump from a point in the metrics of the observability to a point in logging in which it happened, then observe what the server saw at that time in order to diagnose and fix whatever the issue might be.

Pros and Cons

  • "It is massively useful and great for testing. We can just go, find logs, and attach them easily. It has a very quick lookup. Whereas, before we would have to go, dig around, and find the server that the logs were connected to, then go to the server, download the log, and attach it. Now, we can just go straight to this solution, type in the log ID and server ID, and obtain the information that we want."
  • "I would like granularity on alerting so we can get tentative alerts and major alerts, then break it down between the two."

What other advice do I have?

Logz.io is great. For any other project we create it will be one of the staple products where I will say, "We should just start with this upfront, as opposed to trying to find another solution later or reassessing it, because there is no reason not to start with the product right now." Then, we will find its niche for whatever it is we are making in the future. I think this solution is super useful. It is a common go-to for a lot of the team who use it. We use the solution’s AI-powered Insights feature, but not as heavily as maybe we should. It is definitely interesting to see what is going on…

What is our primary use case?

One of our customers uses it as a central logs aggregation point. We forward over logs from our customer environment in AWS to Logz.io. We use it to carry out dashboarding and analytics as well as for carrying out some alarming for certain scenarios and events. Essentially, it is a centralized log platform for a customer solution. We use Logz.io for cloud monitoring. I predominantly work in the cloud. That is all I have worked in over the last 10 years or so.

Pros and Cons

  • "The other nice thing about Logz.io is their team. When it comes to onboarding, their support is incredibly proactive. They bring the brand experience from a customer services perspective because their team is always there to help you refine filters and tweak dashboards. That is really a useful thing to have. Their engagement is really supportive."
  • "I would like them to improve how they manage releases. Some of our integrations integrate specifically with set versions. Logz.io occasionally releases an update that might break that integration. On one occasion, we found out a little bit too late, then we had to roll it back."

What other advice do I have?

Make the best use of the support services Logz.io provides. The customer concierge is there to make sure that you are onboarded correctly. Your customer success manager and technical point of contact are very helpful. They will really speed up your implementation on your configuration. Make best use of the people that they make available to you. Logz.io is being used every day by the team on a customer project. They log in everyday to look at logs and dashboards as well as search logs. This is a really important part of the toolkit that we provide to our customer through our teams. I would…
