Many syslog servers store messages to local files, resulting in decentralization.
Servers like rsyslog write events to different files based on facility, further adding complexity.
Finding events, configuring alerts, and setting global policies can become more difficult as your infrastructure grows.
Consolidate your logs on SolarWinds™ Papertrail® for easier storage and management.
Monitor, view, and search log data in real time.

Papertrail consolidates your syslog messages into a single location. Instead of hunting through files in /var/log, use the Papertrail Event Viewer to see all of your log messages simultaneously. Filter logs based on date, sender, facility, priority, or message content. Create alerts to detect and notify you of application errors, hardware failures, or other high-priority events.Sign up for a free plan
Avoid having to manually configure each of your logging components. Manage policies for your entire infrastructure from a single location. Set up global retention policies, automate backup and archive generation, and define per-user access permissions. When your logging requirements change, simply save your settings in Papertrail and your new policy is applied instantly.Sign up for a free plan
