Scalyr -- The Solution to Your Operational Diagnostics Woes

Scalyr is your universal tool for visibility into your production systems, providing log aggregation, server metrics, monitoring, alerting, dashboards, and more. Don't be limited by the narrow capabilities of traditional tools. All of your operational data -- logs, metrics, and more -- in one place, where you can explore, filter, and analyze at interactive speeds. Enterprise-grade functionality with sane pricing and insane performance. Take a look at our feature list to learn more.
