Graylog is a leading enterprise log management system that enables fast and efficient log analysis in the areas of security, compliance, operations and DevOps. Our enterprise product enables large organizations to capture, store and analyze terabytes of machine data in near-real time, while our open project empowers individuals and small teams to perform basic log consolidation, analysis, and search functions at no cost.

Our Integrations Team's goal is to enable Graylog users to collect logs from anywhere, enrich those logs with data from any relevant source, and send their logs onward to any system that needs to consume them.
