We made Scalyr for the engineers and SREs delivering today’s software-driven world. Whether using traditional or microservice architectures, pushing code once a week or multiple times a day, you need to observe your software in action and quickly understand and resolve issues.

Scalyr delivers lightning-fast data ingestion and search analytics; rich dashboards, alerts, notifications; and materialized metric views.

Scalyr Log Management is built on the Scalyr Event Data Cloud which optimizes for scale, performance, and low cost, so you can afford to ingest and search more data while experiencing the best performing experience in the industry.

Simple to use

Our customers tell us they love how easy it is to use Scalyr, even for users with no query language expertise. You can search for free text, wildcards or regular expressions in the query bar. Or point and click directly in the log lines or a graph. This makes it incredibly simple for your entire team to adopt Scalyr. You can skip all of the specialized training, certifications and roles that alternatives require.

Embedded Metrics and Visualizations

Metrics are a critical part of observability, but they don’t have to be hard to access or cost extra: Scalyr provides them for free, deriving them directly from existing logs and delivering visualizations, alerting, and dashboards from them.

Our metrics engine evaluates dashboards on a continuous basis so that your views and alerts are always as fresh as your event data.


PowerQueries add a new dimension to our blazing-fast log search, letting you transform and combine data on the fly for richer analysis, reporting and alerting. With this powerful new functionality, you can now pivot seamlessly from our facet-based search into more complex log search operations and create sophisticated data processing pipelines. Designed with a simplified query syntax, PowerQueries leverage our existing real-time data processing engine, so you get the same speed, ease-of-use and scalability that you’ve come to expect from Scalyr.

Kubernetes monitoring & troubleshooting

Monitor and troubleshoot Kubernetes environments effectively and effortlessly with Scalyr. We automatically aggregate and group logs by deployment to give you a holistic view of your services regardless of which container or pod they are running on. With support for a wide range of controller types, Scalyr helps you quickly identify and resolve issues in your containerized environments. We also track log volume by Kubernetes application or label so you can get a quick view into how much data each controller is generating.

Real-time alerts

Scalyr gives you robust, precise alerting on logs, metrics and events. Unlike legacy or home-grown log management alternatives that force you to trade timeliness for accuracy, our alerts are real-time and complete, all driven by our rapid ingest and parsing. Now you can have alerts that you can depend on, along with the information you need to address the problem.

Live tail

Need to see a particular set of continuous live logs as they’re coming into Scalyr? Use Live Tail to see this view for easy troubleshooting of a live issue with fewer distractions. You can start and stop the log flow to zero in on items of interest.


Scalyr Hindsight enables long-term retention and search of event and log data. Data can be retained for as long as you want at low, S3 rates, and analyzed on a per-TB-scanned rate.

Hindsight shares the same responsiveness as traditional Scalyr analytics and the same powerful search and visualization tools.


The shift toward more modern architectures and processes has led to the decentralization of engineering teams. As individuals and small teams become responsible for more of the delivery lifecycle of their respective services, they need greater access to observability solutions that provide not just the real-time visibility but also the ability to work together. Scalyr lets users create annotations either manually or programmatically and is fully integrated with popular collaboration tools like Slack. You can also manage team access and permissions to data, graphs and dashboards in accordance with your policies.

Integration and Apps

Scalyr supports a variety of interface and application options to seamlessly operate in your environment, with your preferences. Scalyr works most popular operating systems, container types, cloud platforms, databases, web and application servers. We provide special integrations for Linux, Windows, AWS, Docker, Kubernetes, MySQL, PostgreSQL, Apache, nginx, .NET, Heroku, AppHarbor, Graphite, syslog, fluentd and more. See The Complete List

Bi-directional APIs

Scalyr’s bi-directional API set lets you send data directly to and search data in the Scalyr platform. It offers the ability to retrieve raw log text or structured log events; create or retrieve numeric, graph or time series data; manage configuration files; manage API keys; and invite, revoke or manage users, groups and their permissions.

Scalyr’s Event Data Cloud (EDC) exposes these same APIs for customers who want to build their own apps and services using the EDC’s powerful analytics and event data management capabilities.

Security and reliability

Scalyr is committed to the security and privacy of customers and to the availability of their data. Our Python agent doesn’t have to be run as root, cannot receive external instructions and can redact sensitive information. The platform encrypts all internal and external communications with TLS and is built to prevent buffer overflows, SQL injection and cross-site scripting. We are SOC-2 Type II, PCI-DSS and GDPR compliant and provide continuous replication across fully redundant data centers for high availability.
