Why use Grafana Cloud for log monitoring?


Consistent performance at any scale

Are you worried about losing logs or slow queries at large log volumes? Grafana Cloud Logs is powered by Grafana Loki, which is horizontally scalable, highly available, and highly performant.
  • Run faster queries at scale with massive parallelization and query splitting techniques.
  • Native support for out-of-order ingestion and bursts of logs, so no more lost logs.

Tips to improve query performance ->

Correlate logs and metrics for rapid troubleshooting

Grafana Cloud Logs mirrors how Prometheus works. The result? Logs consistently have the same metadata as metrics, making it easier for teams to onboard and get started querying and correlating data.

  • Logs generated by an application can be correlated natively with Prometheus metrics to gain deeper insights and accelerate root cause detection.
  • LogQL, the powerful query language used in Loki, allows complex queries involving field extraction, regular expressions, and pattern matching.
  • Create metrics from logs to detect and alert on anomalies. Comes in handy when you can’t instrument your application with metrics or when you’re dealing with high cardinality.

Easy setup for log management

Don’t want the toil of building a scalable log aggregation system? Grafana Cloud Logs aggregates logs in any format, from any data source, so you spend less time on setup and more time optimizing your applications and infrastructure.
  • Leverage Promtail, Fluentbit, Fluentd, Vector, Logstash, the OpenTelemetry Collector, and the Grafana Agent, as well as a host of unofficial clients for shipping logs.
  • Pull in log data from many sources — including local log files, the systemd journal, GCP, AWS CloudWatch, Amazon EC2 and EKS, Windows events logs, the Docker logging driver, Kubernetes, and Kafka.
  • All log formats are welcome, including JSON, XML, CSV, logfmt, and unstructured text.

Scale log volumes but not your observability costs

Trying to figure out what log data to keep and what to drop in order to manage rising logging costs? Don’t bother. You can store all your log data and still not get overwhelmed or surprised by your bills with Grafana Cloud.

  • Analyze, monitor, and optimize your logging spend with the centralized cost management hub.
  • Investigate and identify the source of high log volumes using the Log Volume Explorer.
  • Grafana Cloud Logs Export allows you to store log data in an external object storage of your choice — at no additional cost — for long-term archiving to meet compliance or auditing requirements.

Our team was initially attracted to Grafana Cloud because it was cost effective. In fact, our Datadog bills for logs weekly was more than our annual logs bills with Grafana Cloud. But it was those logging superpowers in Grafana Cloud Logs that really made a huge difference.
