Getting started is easy: Add the lightweight Scalyr agent (written in Python) on any server and choose which logs you want to upload. It will start collecting system metrics and logs right away.
Most log searches take less than a second. Data is available in real-time. Scalyr is built from the ground up to give you exceptionally fast search results. A simple-yet-powerful query syntax, along with mouse navigation, makes it easy for anyone on your team to get answers from logs and system metrics.
Upload, parse, and analyze any log format. Use one of our pre-built parsers, customize your own, or send us a log sample and we'll make a parser for you.
Stream and analyze real-time system metrics. Agent plugins are available for Linux, Windows, Apache, Nginx, MySQL, and other popular applications, so you're always on top of all your systems. You can also create your own custom plugins.
Monitor any internal or external system for uptime, content changes, or errors. Set alerts for almost anything -- if it can be extracted from timeseries or log data, you can set an alert on it (even averages, percentiles, and frequencies.)
Send alerts to any email, PagerDuty, OpsGenie, HipChat, Slack, or webhook. Set one or multiple recipients for each alert or bundle alerts into groups for easy management.
All data connections are secured with enterprise-grade 128-bit SSL encryption. The Scalyr agent does not run as root and cannot be controlled remotely. You can even redact sensitive data from your logs before they ever leave your server.
We run multiple data centers with full redundancy and advanced internal monitoring for immediate incident response.
A customer on using Scalyr as a Sumo Logic alternative
"We went from paying a lot for a tool that nobody liked using to paying less for a better tool that did way more and solved more problems."
