Seq vs Bunyan: What are the differences?

Developers describe Seq as "A log server that runs on a central machine". It is the easiest way to collect, search, analyze and alert on structured log data. Structured logging preserves the individual property values, as well as the text, associated with each event. On the other hand, Bunyan is detailed as "A logging module for node.js services". It is a simple and fast JSON logging module for node.js services. It has extensible streams system for controlling where log records go (to a stream, to a file, log file rotation, etc.).

Seq and Bunyan can be primarily classified as "Logging" tools.

Some of the features offered by Seq are:

  • intelligent search
  • analysis
  • alerting server

On the other hand, Bunyan provides the following key features:

  • Elegant log method API
  • Extensible streams system for controlling where log records go (to a stream, to a file, log file rotation, etc.)
  • bunyan CLI for pretty-printing and filtering of Bunyan logs

Bunyan is an open source tool with 5.96K GitHub stars and 488 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Bunyan's open source repository on GitHub.

      What are some alternatives to Bunyan and Seq?
      Loki
      Loki is a horizontally-scalable, highly-available, multi-tenant log aggregation system inspired by Prometheus. It is designed to be very cost effective and easy to operate, as it does not index the contents of the logs, but rather a set of labels for each log stream.
      Log4j
      It is an open source logging framework. With this tool – logging behavior can be controlled by editing a configuration file only without touching the application binary and can be used to store the Selenium Automation flow logs.
      CocoaLumberjack
      CocoaLumberjack is a fast & simple, yet powerful & flexible logging framework for Mac and iOS.
      uno
      We built uno, a small tool similar to uniq (the UNIX CLI tool that removes duplicates) - but with fuzziness. uno considers two lines to be equal if their edit distance is less than a specified threshold, by default set to 30%. It reads from stdin and prints the deduplicated lines to stdout.
      Zap
      Zap takes a different approach. It includes a reflection-free, zero-allocation JSON encoder, and the base Logger strives to avoid serialization overhead and allocations wherever possible. By building the high-level SugaredLogger on that foundation, zap lets users choose when they need to count every allocation and when they'd prefer a more familiar, loosely typed API.
