I am wanting to collect up my logs from my router and a couple of other sources - I can't see this exceeding more than 100mb a month, even that is probably on the high side.

A while ago I found a free online services that had paid plans, but their free one was quite good, however I can't for the life of me remember what it was called.

Are there any free options out there? I'd only want ~2 months retention?

Sumologic is very comprehensive. Even on the free plan I could collect Geekzone webserver logs without going over daily limits, but there's a retention limit for free plan. 


Very good for dashboards, real time queries, live log tail searches, etc.

Having looked into this exact area recently (for a work project) I found that all online services offer very, very limited retention periods.  Even their paid plans often only offer 30-45 days.

I know you are looking at online, but if you can role your own I think its a better solution. We ended up using a variation of the ELK stack - FluentD for aggregated logging, Elastic for search, and Grafana for the visualizations and notifications.  This all works on Windows and Linux.

On a side note, offer a hosted service similar to the above.
