Easily convert logs into beautiful charts

The Log Analyzer from VirtualMetric enables you to easily generate different types of charts based on the logs you want to analyze. For example, you can put occurred events on the line chart and you can monitor how the logs generated are changing by the time. This makes it easy to understand if there is an anomaly in a time frame.

As a next step, you can convert this line chart into the top chart, which makes it easier to top log sources. All administrators can realize which log source is generating the most event logs.

The disadvantages of other products are that when you are writing your own query if you need to change your chart type, you need to change the specific query type. This takes a lot of time and you need to be able to write very good queries. What we do at StorPool is that we know what you are trying to get when they choose “top chart”. We automatically change your request into the top chart query in the backend, so you don’t have to change anything in the REST query.
