Graylog needs to improve their authentication. Their AD integration is really bad. When it comes to ACL's, access control lists, where you want to have different group memberships and control who gets access to what, it really could use major improvements. It seems like a beta authentication version that they came up with in a hurry and said, "Hey guys, we've got something going for you. Use it until we think of something later on." I believe their enterprise version has improved some of these features, but I use the open source version. The second thing would be the way they handle live logging. The fact that Graylog displays logs from the top down is just ridiculous. I've never seen anything that logs this way except for Graylog. I believe this is an issue because they have the selector going in that direction, so it would make sense that they have to implement it that way, but it's definitely not cool. When you're looking at Graylog's live logging, whether it's doing a one-second or five-second pull, you'll notice that new log lines are placed at the top of the screen, not the bottom of the screen. I find this ridiculous because normally when you're looking at logs anywhere, on Linux, even in Windows, you're going to see that the logs are generated at the bottom. That's one thing that Graylog definitely needs to improve. Graylog also needs to invest some time to improve the performance and how they handle the maintenance of Elasticsearch. An added feature I would like to see is the capacity to delegate most of the backend maintenance to the frontend UI. When you have somebody from the service desk working on the solution or somebody who's not a technical person, they could run some of the maintenance stuff directly from the UI. Another thing is something that I saw in LogDNA, where you could have a color based on log regex. For example, it would color the timestamps next to the log lines orange, make the source of the log purple, and then make the actual log content black. That would be very nice to see in Graylog.
