Log files are different: contents, formats, forensics, and purpose. With Lumberjack, you can treat them differently by keeping them in memory and on disk for different amounts of time. This feature allows you to control costs and regulatory compliance.

As an example, audit logs may require only a few hours in searchable memory, but years on disk; while error logs may need only 14 days of searchable memory and no persistence.

Parse all log formats known to mankind

Using regular expressions with named groups, extract only the most important pieces of information from your log entries. The parsed entries turn into key-value pairs which can then be searched. The parser also handles custom date formats and JSON. A library of standard formats exists for common programs like Apache, Tomcat, Nginx, Syslog, Rsyslog, MySQL, SQLServer, Redis, Memcached, and more.

Lumberjack is engineered to have a maximum latency time of two seconds. In those seconds, log data is taken from your files, uploaded in batches, and then processed, stored, and indexed so that you can see insights in real time. These two seconds may vary with distance and network latency between your servers and our data centers in the Eastern US.

Create custom dashboards with related data sources

Use resizable, draggable widgets on a dynamic 12 column grid to research related data. Our widgets show raw log data as well as aggregated graphs and figures. Dashboards can be used to display on public monitors, share information with coworkers, or track an intermittent problem. Links to dashboards contain page state, so you can always be sure they’ll see the same data. We recommend having a dashboard for every problem you’re trying to solve.

Installing the OpsBunker Smart Agent is as simple as copying and pasting a single wget|bash command for Linux users, downloading and installing a single .msi file for Windows users, and brew install for Mac users. The whole process takes less than 5 minutes.
