While it's not -hard- to login to your servers and check each log file it can quickly become a burden with log files kept in different locations, slightly different syntax for each and perhaps more than one server to dig through. Depending on your business you are probably not doing this everyday so the fact that you can setup Papertrail once and are then able to search through it in one location is a huge time saver in the long run. Papertrail has some competition in this space but i like the singular goal of this app and it has a good price to value comparison as well. It just works which is basically all you can ask from an app like this.
Logentries is an easy-to-use, self-hosted log management and analytics service for teams of all sizes. It is integrated as a Heroku add-on which makes it simple to search, analyze, and manage the logs.
I use Papertrail as a distributed log aggregator for nightly.zerotoherojs.com and dojo.zerotoherojs.com
I served me really well so far.
It is simple to use, intuitive, and reasonably-priced.
Papertrail is sent logs via Heroku log drains, and provides centralised logging of both the web and background workers for debugging errors and spelunking into logs.
We log things of importance to loggly. It's a nice one-stop place to search into errors, exceptions, and expectations.
We use PaperTrail, so basically all of our instances write into SysLog entries that are shifted to PaperTrail.
we used papertrail at talenthouse for all out logging needs. elegant and simple ui. enjoyed the service.
Main service used by Coolfront Mobile and Coolfront Books to capture logging information.
General log management and alerting (together with its Slack integration).
We are still trying to figure out the best logging approach for production
