Log Levels on Demand

How does it save money? By letting you change and target log levels just when you need them. With Prefab, you can change log levels on the fly, so you can log less until you need it.

Need deeper insights for debugging? Switch to debug level logging in an instant. When you're done, stop paying for logs no one is reading.

Accelerate MTTR

When things are on fire, you want to find the problem as quickly as possible. More debugging information means faster solutions and significant reductions in your Mean Time To Recovery (MTTR).

Don't pay for detailed traced for the hundreds of thousands of devices you don't need. With Prefab, get the right logs from the right places at the right time.

Powerful targeting allows you to target log levels by whatever context you have. Be it userId, teamId, or transactionId, it's easy to laser focus.

Don't Forget to Turn Logging Off

We've all been there. Someone needed more debugging 3 months ago and you've been paying for it ever since. Use Timed Logger to automatically revert when your debugging session is completed.
