Graylog is an entirely open-source integrated log managing platform. It’s purposed to perform collecting, analyzing, and indexing jobs both structured as well as unstructured data from any source. The platform helps manage tools and manage computing resources in a consistent and effective manner.
According to the Graylog Pricing, it’s a free tool. Here’s the Graylog Pricing model:
- There’s a free version
- There’s also the enterprise licensing which happens to be available at $1,500 every Graylog - server instance in the Graylog cluster.
Graylog Demo is free for the version and can be used for the purpose of collecting, analyzing, and indexing structured and unstructured data from any source.
Graylog’s log-focused architecture is potential in accepting almost all types of structured data including network traffic and log messages from:
- JSON Path from HTTP API, and more
Raw materials are supposed to parse and make useful to the human operators as well as downstream systems.
- Giving allowance to enriching log data by translation of the message field into newer values
- Cleaning up the log messages in the structured order and allowing greater flexibility in blacklisting, routing, and even modifying messages
The query of large quantities of the machine data is easy. The management tools are supposed to be equal in accordance with it.
- The tool makes right uses of Boolean search terms in the wizard interface to select data and fields
- Its search workflow helps build & combine a slew of searches regardless of the types of analysis
A log management system seldom operates in the vacuum. There will be the summary data that requires getting passed to somewhere else in the Operations Center.
- Graylog’s dashboard comprises charts & data delivered through email regularly
- Graylog collects missing alerts and builds complexes based on the respective relationship
