What does OpsGenie offer to Graylog users?
OpsGenie has a specific alert plugin for Graylog. Using this plugin, Graylog sends stream alerts to OpsGenie, with detailed information. OpsGenie acts as a dispatcher for Graylog alerts, determining the right people to notify based on on-call schedules, using email, text messages (SMS), phone calls and iPhone & Android push notifications, and escalating alerts until the alert is acknowledged or closed.
