Logentries’ New Querybuilder Makes Real-time Log Search and Analysis More Accessible Than Ever Before

New Search Bar Tool Builds Powerful Queries For Improved Accuracy and Insight

July 16, 2015

Boston, Massachusetts (July 16, 2015) – Logentries, the leading provider of log management and analytics built for the cloud, today launched Querybuilder, an easy-to-use search tool to support the Logentries Query Language (LEQL). The Querybuilder enables Logentries users to select query functions and pre-extracted field values from drop down menus for easy query-building. The Querybuilder can also be used in an advanced mode for users who want to write the queries without assistance, for more advanced, real-time analysis of log data.

As IT and Dev Ops teams face massive amounts of machine-generated data, they require services designed to easily centralize and search to quickly pinpoint important events and trends. The Logentries Querybuilder automatically identifies and extracts the available Key Value Pairs across log events and presents them as options to be included in a new query. The Querybuilder also displays a list of available query functions that can be used to calculate a count, sum, average, minimum or maximum value. The Logentries Query Language, supported by the Querybuilder, is designed to remove the traditional complexity associated with log search by enabling users to consistently build syntactically accurate queries without needing to learn a new query language.

“IT and Dev Ops teams today don’t have time for complex query languages and hours of training to complete a simple search,” said Trevor Parsons, Chief Scientist, Logentries. “The Logentries Query Language and new Querybuilder tool were developed to make searching and analyzing your log data easier and accessible to the whole team for immediate, real-time results.”

The Logentries Query Language (LEQL) helps users to slice-and-dice their data, offering advanced analytics such as COUNT, SUM, AVERAGE, MIN, MAX, GROUP BY, SORT and more. With this powerful search, users can quickly construct a dashboard view of data visualizations and understand what is occurring across the operations infrastructure. The Logentries Query Language will be rolled out to all users for a limited time preview and will be available permanently in paid Logentries plans.

The cloud-based Logentries service collects and pre-processes log events in real-time for on-demand analysis, alerting and visualization. With custom tagging and filtering, users can correlate data across their infrastructure to better understand application usage and performance, security issues, and user behavior.
