PaperTrail: Hassle-free log management in just a few seconds

It seems that for as long as there have been computers, there have been logs. That’s because it’s comparatively easy to generate logs for any sort of computer activity. It’s finding these logs, and then making sense of all the data, that can be very frustrating. But all these problems are solved once you get started with PaperTrail.

With it, you get instant log visibility. And then you can quickly find the log data you’re looking for. You’ll be able to spot any configuration changes, slow database queries, app requests, error messages, and customer problems. Worth giving this app a spin if you manage logging at work.


  • Quick troubleshooting: Common log management problems include diagnosing the cause of missing email, a customer service ticket, an app service error, or a monitoring alert. With Papertrail, you can just search or tail to find the answer.
  • Group related events together: With just a few clicks, you can create the type of log view you need to see the data more clearly.
  • Boosted visibility: You can even help people outside the IT department (who either don’t have access or any knowledge of SSH/RDP) make use of logs.
  • Tool integration: You can use Papertrail to work with popular and powerful existing tools, so that you don’t have to start from scratch. You can also mix in your own apps or other web services.
  • Easy setup: You can start work on log management quickly, as the setup only takes an average of 45 seconds.
  • Versatile: You can manage the logs of your 2 servers, or even if you have 2,000 servers.
