Use cases

LDP-UseCase-Troubleshoot your application in real time
Troubleshoot your application in real time

Developers can analyse how their application is behaving, perform root cause analysis and troubleshooting procedures to help them improve their code, all in real time. They can also take advantage of Live Tail to stream their logs in real time, and to connect different applications or servers to one unique endpoint (making all of them appear in one stream if necessary). All in all, developers get much better visibility at an application level.

Monitor & SEO analysis

Logs Data Platform offers powerful log analysis tools to monitor your website. Indeed, the analysis of Apache and SQL logs is a proven and recognized method in this field. For example, you can use Apache logs to study the activity of your visitors, the delivery time of pages, the results of the code, and the agent used to access your site. SQL logs can, for example, allow you to identify queries that slow down your website. In addition, you can use the alerting function to receive a warning in the event your website goes down, is too slow, or is displaying an error 500.

Secure legal logs

If you have an e-commerce website, the European law on GDPR obliges you to keep logs relating to the traceability of customer data over a long period of time. Our cold storage options help you ensure compliance (check our tutorial here). If you need to access these logs quickly, then choose the "Immediate withdrawal Cold storage"; otherwise choose the "Economical Cold storage".


Why are logs important?

Log files are created every time an event occurs on your IT systems. The analysis of these files delivers useful information about their state of health. They can come from various sources (physical servers, virtual servers, mobile applications, websites, etc) and can be counted in their millions each day - making them difficult to analyze. From your logs, you can draw valuable information about the behavior of your customers, or systems, and act accordingly.

How do I analyse my logs?

Logs Data Platform is a turnkey solution that enables you to collect, store and analyse logs. It supports any type of logs file; from application logs, to server and security logs. There is the option to use your own choice of log collector (Syslog-ng, Fluentd, NXLog) or to use our dedicated collectors - Flowgger and Logstash - which work regardless of the source, format, or structure of your data. For log analysis, customers can leverage Graylog, Kibana or Grafana visualisation, to perform logs monitoring at application level, or server monitoring when dealing with infrastructure supervision. By enabling customers to take advantage of ELK (Elasticsearch Logstash Kibana) ecosystem, the Logs Data Platform works as a powerful log analyser solution. 

In the context of "long-term archiving," what is the difference between 'Quick cold storage,' and 'Economical cold storage'?

Based on Swift open source technology, "Quick cold storage" is designed to store and retrieve your data in real time. Whereas "Economical cold storage" is designed to secure your data at the lowest possible cost, so the architecture in place induces a delay ranging from 10 minutes to 12 hours before data recovery (depending on the date of last access).

How does the billing of a "logs account" work?

Logs Data Platform is an entirely pay-as-you-go model. You are not billed on the amount of data sent, but on the amount of data stored on the platform.

To use the Index as a service, do I have to take a shard?

Indeed, Elasticsearch shards (also called Shards) are essential for the storage of your documents. An Elasticsearch shard is 25 GB, and you can have up to 16 shards.

How many Roles, Streams & Dashboards am I eligible for?

You are entitled to as many Roles, Streams & Dashboards as you wish, at no extra cost (except Kibana).

Which protocols can I utilize to send my data?

You can push in TCP, TCP TLS or UDP.

How do alerts work?

We offer you the ability to set up Graylog alerts. These alerts can be based on present value status, a calculated numerical value, or on number of logs. Logs Data Platform will send you and your collaborators an email, so you can take action before it is too late. You can also easily integrate another alert system such as ElastAlert.
