If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering Graylog, what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
I would say that it's definitely worth looking into the extensive search and filtering functionality of Graylog in order to make the most out of it. I would also suggest having a look into the dashboard view functionalities for doing some kind of quick performance overview on the application set. I think the coolest feature of Graylog if you're a developer is that you are able to really narrow down or to specify the search. For TeamCity, for example, there is specific query language and you can build dashboards and queries there as well, but this feature was kind of limited when I was using it. Even though it was available, I didn't like the feature overly much. I know that there are other similar tools available, but I enjoy using Graylog the most. I would rate this solution as an eight out of ten because the integration with Python isn't perfect, but if that's fixed in the future, I would say it would be a nine or ten.
I rate Graylog a seven out of ten.
I would recommend this solution to others. It is for small and medium organizations. I would rate it a seven out of 10.
I would definitely recommend Graylog to others who are interested in using it. At this point with the features that I have used, I would rate Graylog a ten out of ten.
Graylog is straightforward to install and easy to maintain. It also comes with alerting. But one has to be mindful of the support and disadvantages like the index rotation. On a scale from one to ten, I give Graylog an eight.
This is a good product and I would rate it an eight out of 10.
In the next version I would perhaps like to see less overlapping in in the interface. Some users feel that it is still very rigid and boxy. Pretty old school. So a more user-friendly interface with less overlapping in the structures would be great. I rate this solution 9.5 out of 10.
