A dashboard is put together by dragging & dropping graphs and widgets into place. Graphs and widgets include charts, tables, gauges, event counts among other forms of data visualization. See More
Alerts can be created based on tags or by setting criteria via the intuitive and powerful search capabilities of LogEntries. To not flood notifications it's possible to specify limitations for alerts, such as how many times an hour an event has to happen for it to trigger a notification. Notifications can be sent by email, mobile messaging or via webhooks (webhooks are sent server in real-time, so there's no need for polling for changes). See More
In Live Tail mode events and searches update in real-time. Live Tail mode can be used in Aggregate View, that allows selecting a combination of logfiles to be viewed together, and with any log groups created. These events are supplemented with tags to allows getting an overview of current events quickly at a glance. See More
Logs can be colorized by installing Stylish, a browser extension for Chrome and Firefox that overrides CSS stylesheets, and writing a custom stylesheet. Papertrail's log entries have various attributes that can be used to change css properties for specific programs or systems, or based on message contents. Logs can also be colorized within the actual logs by adding ANSI escape codes (will override user-specific colorization). See More
Highly user friendly and easy to use. Instantly usable, as I got a Kibana dashboard and several pre-defined alerts specifically for Heroku. Have used the Regex rules to block logs which cluttered my system. Automatic version comparison with the Tags is simply amazing and saved me from one major catastrophe. I love the product! See More
