observIQ Open Source Log Agent Benefits

High-Performance Log Agent

The observIQ log agent uses 10x less memory and CPU than other log agents, consuming fewer resources and allowing higher log data throughput.


Flexible Destination Support

observIQ Open Source Log Agent can be used in place of the FluentD or Logstash agent to increase performance in an Elastic stack model, or send data to other platforms such as Google Cloud Logs, AWS Cloudwatch or our own observIQ Cloud.

Remote Agent Status and Configuration

The observIQ log agent provides live agent health status and remote configuration, allowing updates on the fly. Change your log configuration to diagnose problems in real-time.

Log Aggregation

The observIQ log agent automatically aggregates log signals from any source – including microservice architectures, containerized environments, and hybrid cloud logs – into a single platform.

Flexible Log Aggregation

Ease of Use

With a one-line installer for agent deployment, and a host of prebuilt plug-ins, observIQ Log Agent is easy to configure and provides the automation capabilities engineers need.

Paid Support

Although community-based support is a powerful benefit of open source software, it doesn’t meet the needs of every organization. Paid support and professional services are available for observIQ Open Source Log Agent to ensure you have the help you need.
