A log analysis and alerts system that is inexpensive compared to the competition

What is our primary use case?

The primary use is for system log collection and analysis.

Pros and Cons

  • "The setup and installation are very easy."
  • "It is very scalable and can handle a large workload."
  • "It needs better integration with third-party analytics tools."
  • "Log retention should have more options for user control."

What other advice do I have?

My advice to people looking at Log Insight as a monitoring tool is that it is good and that they can go ahead and go for it because it is a good solution. On a scale from one to ten (where one is the worst and ten is the best), I would rate the product overall as an eight-of-ten.

Good file integrity monitoring and change tracking tools but the knowledge base needs to be available online

What is our primary use case?

We use this solution primarily for real-time log analytics. We also use the NNT Log Tracker and Change Tracker for the FIM functionality.

Pros and Cons

  • "The FIM features in the Change Tracker and the Log Tracker are the most valuable."
  • "I would like to see the integration of AI technology, so rather than manually monitoring the logs, the tool will understand it and take care of it."

What other advice do I have?

We are using the second most recent version of this solution. I would recommend using NNT over ManageEngine. The Change Tracker tool is very good. It will reduce your overall workload. The FIM tool allows you to understand the activities and the NNT tool takes care of automatically giving you the actual and planned changes. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.
