LogLogic has released the next generation of its core open log-management technology, powered by LogLogic 4.9 software. The new line of appliances is supplied on bigger, faster, more resilient hardware to deliver large increases in log-message processing, log-message storage, connectivity, and resiliency.

The new LogLogic products take advantage of the latest improvements in software technology, incorporating the most advanced software, faster processors, faster disks, more storage space, and enhanced networking capabilities in the same or smaller footprint as before.

With scalable new CPUs and new LogLogic software tuned to optimize disk and processor performance, customers will enjoy faster searches and reporting times in the new platform. Additionally, customers will be able to store a greater volume of log data on the appliances, allowing them to handle growing log data needs. Testing shows that LogLogic’s LX appliance has gone from consuming 4,000 log records a second to an average of 10,000, peaking at 130,000 in certain circumstances. Likewise, the ST range has jumped from consuming 75,000 log records per second to an average of 150,000, peaking at 250,000.

This new platform is featured in the following new LogLogic appliances:

  • LX range of log capture, reporting and alerting appliances: LX1020 and the LX4020, with the latter offering blazing performance with Intel’s Quad-Core technology, in addition to delivering 400 percent more hard disk capacity than its predecessor.

  • ST range of log capture, archiving, and forensics appliances: the ST1020, the ST2020-SAN, and the ST4020 are all built on the same Quad-Core Intel chassis as the LX range with similar improvements in performance, memory, disk, and connectivity. The ST2020-SAN includes a Qlogic FC SAN card for connection to storage from such companies as Brocade and EMC.

  • MX3020 appliance for combined collection, reporting, alerting, archival, and forensics.

Pricing for the MX range starts at $35,000, the ST range at $50,000, and the LX range at $60,000. More information can be found at www.loglogic.com.
