What 60,000 Customer Searches Taught Us about Logging in JSON

JSON is the most popular log type used by Loggly customers because it makes it relatively easy for you to benefit from Loggly’s automated parsing and analytics; and selfishly, it makes sense as we handle JSON better than anyone else. JSON allows you to treat your logs as a structured database on which you can easily filter and report, even if there are millions of events. The chart below shows the JSON fields on which Loggly customers perform the highest number of searches based on a sample of over 60,000 searches.
