Papertrail provides hosted log aggregation and log management for servers, apps, and cloud services, live in about 40 seconds.
Papertrail is here to bring smiles to the faces of engineers.
Created for - and from - real-world needs, Papertrail helps detect, resolve, and avoid infrastructure problems using log messages. Realize value from logs you already collect: track down customer problems, error messages, app requests, config changes, and slow DB queries.
Papertrail provides an Internet-accessible remote syslog destination and one-click installable RightScripts to aggregate all of your server and app logs in seconds.
Use Papertrail's intuitive Web event viewer, command-line tools, and HTTP API to tail and search logs as they happen. Then add time-saving saved searches, flexible system groups, monitoring alerts, long-term archives, charts and analytics exports, and team-wide access (independent of SSH/RDP).
Papertrail supports nearly all log generators including Unix/Linux syslog, text files, Web frameworks (Ruby on Rails, Java/J2EE, PHP, and others), Windows Event Log, MySQL slow query logs, chef/RightLink logs, and most other text data. Use any standard system logger our tiny file-to-syslog collector, all supported with RightScripts.
Papertrail and RightScale make quick work of deployment-wide log aggregation and visibility.
Papertrail authored and supports two RightScripts. One RightScript aggregates Unix/Linux syslog messages. A second RightScript aggregates app log messages from any standalone log files (like Apache access_log, Tomcat tomcat.log, and Ruby on Rails production.log). These are boot-safe, tested with common distributions, and can be installed on dozens of servers at once.
As engineers ourselves, we're available anytime for questions and requests.
