Loki vs Seq: What are the differences?
Developers describe Loki as "Like Prometheus, but for logs (by the makers of Grafana)". 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. On the other hand, Seq is detailed 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.
Loki and Seq can be primarily classified as "Logging" tools.
Loki is an open source tool with 6.8K GitHub stars and 405 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Loki's open source repository on GitHub.
