2015. Server log monitoring tool Scalyr raises $2.1M



Scalyr, a log-monitoring service that gives developers more insight into how their applications are performing, has raised a $2.1 million seed round. The idea behind Scalyr, then, is to get all data from server logs, as well as various metrics, error reports and other performance data and run it through a single tool that you can get actionable data from. Services like Splunk and Loggly offer similar log management services, but those tools make it easy to see anecdotes and it’s hard to roll that up into an overview. Scalyr also doesn’t see New Relic as a competitor either because that company’s focus tends to be on performance, while Scalyr focuses more on errors. Log files can quickly grow very large, and analyzing them takes quite a bit of compute power. The team built a new data management engine for its service to handle all of this data.
