BOSTON, March 19, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Logentries, the leading log management and analytics service built for the cloud, today released LogCruncher, a free tool for instant analysis and data visualization of web server log files. LogCruncher does not require any set-up or installation and provides immediate visibility into Apache and Nginx web server logs. With instant access to log data visualization, Operations teams and Web Server Admins can gain immediate understanding of website analytics and user experience based on key metrics including their traffic volumes, web server health and geographical distribution of requests.
Users simply upload their web server log file to LogCruncher, and in less than 60 seconds, receive a complete metrics dashboard containing log data analysis such as:
- Number of Logs Crunched
- Activity By Time of Day
- Most Accessed Resources
- Resource Types

"As a news media website, our web performance and user experience is critically important to our business," said Andrew Mullaney, CTO and Co-Founder of Newswhip Media. "With LogCruncher, we can look at just one log file and get an instant snapshot of our website traffic and activity through visualizations of our most important web server log data by uploading a single web log."
When Operations teams and Web Server Admins need to quickly identify system trends or anomalies, LogCruncher provides visibility into log data without requiring set-up or configuration. The tool was designed for users with minimal technical expertise, offering easy access to valuable insight for Operations, Support, Product and Marketing teams. The free tool quickly ingests Apache and Nginx log files and processes them instantly to provide a view into system usage and activity.
LogCruncher can also detect notable patterns such as high frequency of unusual HTTP status errors. LogCruncher streams end-to-end, providing data results at the same rate as the upload process. As the logs events are processed, LogCruncher parses and normalizes the incoming data into objects following a common format from which key metrics are extracted and visualized.
"Developed by the Logentries Labs research team, LogCruncher provides quick and easy visibility into web server behavior," said Trevor Parsons, Chief Scientist and Co-Founder at Logentries. "Using log data is one of the most granular ways to understand how users are accessing web applications, especially business-critical applications. LogCruncher reveals immediate insight into the end-user experience, including web page response times and any errors they may be experiencing."
The Logentries LogCruncher is available today for free and offers instant web server log analysis in less than 60 seconds.
The cloud-based Logentries service collects and pre-processes log events in real-time for on-demand analysis, alerting and visualization. With custom tagging and filtering, users can correlate data across their infrastructure to better understand application usage and performance, security and performance issues, and user behavior.
