Papertrail software's fees are based on two things: how much log data is generated, and how long it will be searchable in real time. Typical plans cover most common needs. You can also build your own. You have access to all functionality.
Papertrail can notify external services (e.g., Slack, Librato, PagerDuty, Campfire, etc.) when new log messages match important searches. These notifications can happen every minute (like for a monitoring system), every hour, or every day, and only occur in periods when Papertrail receives new matches for a given search.
