A while back I was using the cloud logging solution Loggly and it’s a great solution however the $80/month was getting a bit tiresome.

I ran across another cloud logging solution called LogDNA which does many of the same things just much cheaper. Currently it is costing me $1.25/month for the “Birch” plan.

The plan does all the usual things like searching, alerting and archiving to S3. The alerting being the primary feature for me since I’m also logging to Splunk locally for redundancy.

If you’re hosting your own servers, websites, etc., then LogDNA is a great solution that doesn’t cost a lot. And for the sake of baby jesus, set up alerting for things like logins and such. You’ll be glad you did.

Check it out.
