Log Management FAQs

Log management is the process for handling log data, including generating, aggregating, storing, analyzing, archiving, and disposing of logs. By sending all your log data to a centralized tool, you’ll have an essential log management process that can make it much easier and faster to understand and identify problems in an application network.

  • Security monitoring: Use log data to detect and investigate security incidents.
  • Incident response: Analyze your logs to investigate and respond to issues and quickly identify the root cause.
  • Troubleshooting and debugging: Analyze your logs in order to identify current application errors, bottlenecks, and software bugs.
  • Performance monitoring: Monitor system performance by analyzing log data to identify utilization patterns and anomalies that may potentially impact the health and responsiveness of your system.
  • Application monitoring: Keep track of application-specific logs in order to gain essential insights into user interactions and performance metrics.
  • Business intelligence: Extract key business insights from logs to identify trends and better understand your users and their behaviors.

Monitoring system logs requires a good understanding of the system and the logs that are generated by it. Additionally, it's important to have accurate, real-time data to interpret the logs and take action based on everything that happens in your application, network, or server.

New Relic log management can help you monitor system logs quickly, easily, and all in one place. Reduce your workload by having all of your system logs correlated to curated content across your entire stack with real-time monitoring and in-depth troubleshooting.

New Relic’s logging best practices include:

                       • Anticipate common scenarios.

                       • Log meaningful messages for valuable context.  

                       • Keep logs simple and concise to capture only the most critical information.

                       • Don’t forget to timestamp. 

                       • Use a log format with consistent structure for meaningful parsing. 


You should consider shifting from your ELK (Elasticsearch, Logstash, and Kibana) stack when your software engineering teams need to share insights with less-technical business and customer-facing teams. Plus, New Relic’s tools are easy to learn, making them ideal for your growing developer team. Read more about Simply Business’s shift from ELK to New Relic.
