About Retrospective

Retrospective

aims to be the leading solution
for searching and tailing your data!

Retrospective is a faster and better way for IT people to manage their enterprise log data on either Windows, Mac or Linux. It was initially created by us simply because there wasn’t any other adequate tool available for the “real-world” problems which our Environment Management , Test and Operations Support teams were being confronted with for many years at different customer sites.

Whether you develop Software, integrate systems, have to carry out massive tests or are in support and struggle with problematic tickets, Retrospective enables you to instantly search through distributed logs and get instant data transparency. In addition, if you need to keep a “real-time” eye on different logs, Retrospective offers you a “tail” feature that conveniently merges the different tailed logs into one unified view.

Running Retrospective in production environment is completely safe. Retrospective uses a secure SSH protocol to connect to the hosts so that the password cannot be intercepted and it never saves nor uploads any information be it files or log entries from the servers that it is accessing.

With Retrospective there is no expensive and time consuming analysis of your IT landscape, building of centralised log storage or complex indexing but just a fast, easy and ad-hoc way to access to your data. Whenever you face an issue that may be reflected in your logs, Retrospective is the right tool to successfully find a solution within minutes. Cutting a long story short, Retrospective is a very inexpensive tool that can save you thousands.
