Frequently Asked Questions

What happens at the end of my trial?

New users get a 30-days free trial for each new Monitoring App. At the end of the trial the App is automatically switched to the Basic (free) plan, unless you selected a paid plan. If you pick a paid plan before the trial period ends we will honour the full trial period.

Can I cancel the service?

Of course. You can simply stop sending us metrics, or remove our agents, or switch to the Basic plan.

Hourly pricing, no contract, discounts

There are no contracts and no commitments. You can cancel any time. Price is metered and based on the running time for the app / server being monitored. Note: Docker monitoring is based on the base price and per-container price. The base price includes monitoring of a Docker host and free monitoring of up to N containers. Per-container price is applied only if you run more than N containers per host. The number of containers per host is averaged for the whole account. The base price and the number of containers included in it depends on the plan. We charge at the end of the month. For longer term and large contracts please get in touch.

Can I use multiple different plans?

Yes. Each Monitoring App is independent and each App can have a different plan, including the free plan. Each user account can have any number of Apps.

Can I run Sematext On Premises or in my Cloud?

Yes, see Sematext Enterprise.

How many servers or containers can I monitor?

There are no limits to how many servers / instances / nodes / containers you can monitor for Apps with a paid plan.

Do I have to create my own charts and reports?

You don’t have to, though you can. Sematext gives you instant gratification. It knows what type of application you are monitoring and gives you a number of charts out of the box, neatly grouped into multiple reports and filterable by tags appropriate for each collected metric. As soon as you install the agent Sematext will start providing valuable performance insights.

Can I graph my own custom metrics?

Yes. You can send your custom metrics, chart them, alert on them, apply on anomaly detection on them, create custom dashboards with them, correlate them with other metrics, events, and logs.

How does Sematext compare to New Relic? Datadog? SignalFX? AppDynamics?

Sematext is 4-5 times cheaper than New Relic APM. For more information see Sematext vs. New Relic. Datadog appears more affordable, but forces you to pick a paid plan for your whole account. Sematext, on the other hand, lets you assign plans to each individual App. This way you can select the most optimal plan for each App, including the free plan. This is a major difference whose cost-saving value becomes apparent once you start using Sematext. AppDynamics is rich, but very expensive and focused primarily on large enterprises and on premises deployments – see Sematext vs. AppDynamics.

Frequently Asked Questions

What happens at the end of my trial?

New users get a 30-days free trial for each new Logs App. At the end of the trial the App is automatically switched to the Basic (free) plan, unless you picked a paid plan. If you pick a paid plan before the trial period ends we will honour the full trial period.

Can I cancel the service?

Of course. You can simply stop sending us your logs or switch to the Basic plan.

Pricing, no contract, discounts

There are no contracts and no commitments. You can cancel any time. Price is metered and based on 3 factors: plan, daily volume, and data retention. You pick a plan based on which features you want. You pick volume based on the volume of logs you produce daily. The higher volume you pick the lower the cost per GB. You pick data retention depending on how long you need to keep your data. We charge at the end of the month. For longer term and large contracts please get in touch.

Can I use multiple different plans?

Yes. Each Logs App is independent and each Logs App can have a different plan. Each user account can have any number of Logs Apps. Moreover, each Logs App can use a different payment method (e.g. a different credit card).

Can I run Sematext On Premises or in my Cloud?

Yes. Everything you see in the Cloud is available in Sematext Enterprise as well.

What if I don’t know my daily log volume?

Sematext displays your daily log volume. You can use that information to determine which plan best fits your needs.

What happens if I go over the daily volume specified in my plan?

We keep accepting your logs. We keep track of the daily volume and charge based on the actual volume of data sent to us beyond the volume specified. Note that the bigger volume you specify in your plan the lower the price per GB. Thus, if you find that you often go over the volume you’ve specified you may pay less if you select a higher volume. Also note we don’t charge a premium for overage, plus there is a hard daily log volume limit you can set for extra protection.

How much time does set-up take?

It can take as little as a few minutes, but it depends on how fast you are at configuring log shipping. When you create a Logs App we provide all needed configs for an array of log shipping tools.

How does Sematext compare to in-house Elastic Stack / ELK Stack?

Sematext is much more feature rich than open-source ELK Stack. ELK doesn’t have alerting. It doesn’t have security. It doesn’t have multi-user support. It doesn’t have Log Tagging. It doesn’t have Live Tail. It doesn’t integrate with a performance monitoring system like Sematext Logs integrates with Sematext Monitoring. ELK requires infrastructure. But the key difference that is often underestimated is that running Elasticsearch requires maintenance and tuning, and this requires both time and expertise. This is not immediately obvious, but becomes more and more costly as data volume (and the Elasticsearch cluster) grows. All of this adds up and ends up costing more time, money, and resources than using Sematext. See Sematext vs. ELK.

How does Sematext compare to Splunk?

It’s much more affordable. But there are also differences in features and benefits. Have a look at Sematext vs. Splunk.

How does Sematext compare to Elastic Cloud?

Glad you asked! Sematext is a fully managed log management solution, with built-in replication, data sharding, auto-scaling, backups, etc. There is nothing you need to manage, while with Elastic Cloud the underlying Elasticsearch cluster is still your responsibility. There is also a difference in cost. Please see Sematext vs. Elastic Cloud.
