Logentries vs Logstash: What are the differences?

Developers describe Logentries as "Real-time log management and analytics built for the cloud". Logentries makes machine-generated log data easily accessible to IT operations, development, and business analysis teams of all sizes. With the broadest platform support and an open API, Logentries brings the value of log-level data to any system, to any team member, and to a community of more than 25,000 worldwide users. On the other hand, Logstash is detailed as "Collect, Parse, & Enrich Data". Logstash is a tool for managing events and logs. You can use it to collect logs, parse them, and store them for later use (like, for searching). If you store them in Elasticsearch, you can view and analyze them with Kibana.

Logentries and Logstash belong to "Log Management" category of the tech stack.

Some of the features offered by Logentries are:

  • Logs as Metrics - Extract field level values, analyze them using powerful search functions, and visualize them with detailed dashboards.
  • Dynamic Log Correlation - Dynamically group and correlate your logs in a single dashboard, or aggregate logs from a particular system to give an end-to-end view.
  • Live Tail - View your streaming logs in real-time and highlight important events to easily see errors or exceptions in your live data.

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

  • Centralize data processing of all types
  • Normalize varying schema and formats
  • Quickly extend to custom log formats

"Log search" is the primary reason why developers consider Logentries over the competitors, whereas "Free" was stated as the key factor in picking Logstash.

Logstash is an open source tool with 10.3K GitHub stars and 2.78K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Logstash's open source repository on GitHub.

Airbnb, reddit, and Bitbucket are some of the popular companies that use Logstash, whereas Logentries is used by Code School, Third Iron, and Movielala. Logstash has a broader approval, being mentioned in 561 company stacks & 278 developers stacks; compared to Logentries, which is listed in 136 company stacks and 18 developer stacks.
