IMO, from price quotes I've gotten in the past, it's astronomically
expensive.  As for worth it...depends.  If you're dealing with events
for say payment processing systems, it might be.  But as a general use
tool, it's way outside of being worth it.  You license based on the
incoming bytes of logging data.  But you still have to buy the
hardware to process it.  They also expect you to pay for that license
time and time again.
