No Indexing. No Volume Limits.

SpectX connects to raw data files/blobs and makes them instantly analyzable parsing data at query runtime. No ingestion or indexing, no price tag on volumes, no need to plan extra resources for indexed data. Local log servers, cloud storage, Hadoop clusters, JDBC-databases, production servers, Elastic clusters, or anything that speaks HTTP - SpectX turns any text-based log files into structured virtual views.

Powerful Query Language

SpectX query language is inspired by piping in Unix. An extensive library of built-in query functions allows analysts to compose complex queries and get advanced insights. Users getting familiar with SpectX are welcome to play with the SpectX query pack containing parsers and queries for popular log formats.

Run Any Query via API

In addition to the browser-based interface, every query can be easily executed via RESTful API, with advanced options to customize the resultset. This makes it easy to integrate SpectX with other applications in need of clean and structured data.
