Papertrail Getting Started Guide

Welcome to the SolarWinds Papertrail Getting Started guide. With Papertrail, you can get started by doing the following:

Aggregate app and system logs

Add systems to aggregate app and system logs in Papertrail.

Tail, search, share, and manage logs

Live tail & search
Give access to co-workers
Create a group to organize and selectively choose when to see events from certain systems and restrict access to these groups.
Install command-line tools and use "tail -f" anywhere, anytime.

Alert, archive, and analyze

Receive alerts & summaries
Save searches to avoid typing the same search query twice
Download archives
Analyze archives - Think "SELECT * FROM events" — for years of logs
Filter noise
Create the ideal service based on your volume and usage
